TUI family holidays

TUI (formerly Thomson Holidays) has a long-standing reputation for its great-value family holidays, flights, hotels, cruises and more around the world, whether you want to go Disney mad, experience one of the Family Resorts Collection, check out the stylish Sensatori hotels or discover the icy expanses of Lapland with your kids.

Scroll down for our hand-picked recommendations for TUI family holidays, resorts and hotels.

TUI planes fly to just about every popular destination in Europe you can think of as well as America, Africa and Asia and take pride in the fact that where they land is where they say it’s going to be, not a million miles from your destination – which makes life easier and gets the holiday started sooner. 

There are many child-friendly options; whether that’s a cruise, a luxury resort or one of their Family Life hotels. If it’s the high seas you’re after, you can expect the kids to have a whale of a time. (Don’t worry you will too!). You’ll find family-sized rooms (enough space for all your stuff and theirs on the floor) and interconnecting cabins to give you space but peace of mind. Buffet lunches with the old tried and tested favourites like spaghetti and pizzas means you don’t have to worry about their lack of culinary adventurousness, no matter where you are. Cinemas, football, table tennis, pools and entertainment keeps everyone happily occupied until the next disembarkation. And every ship has a free TUI Kids’ Club too, giving you some chill out time. 

If you feel as though you all deserve a break, take a look at their Sensatori collection. These are resorts picked for their sheer gorgeousness and excellent facilities. You’ll find pools in beautifully landscaped gardens, swim up rooms an unexpected touch that delights the kids and fridges stocked on your arrival with welcoming beer, wine and soft drinks. The Playhouse takes care of kids with time spent concocting science experiments and cooking up a storm. 

Evenings can see kids relax with a movie or head in the other direction and go hyper with a party and if you need time to finish that book, you can arrange sleepovers (additional cost). 

Family Life hotels pull out all the stops for everybody. These hotels will be close to the beaches, have age-specific kids’ clubs, and The Hangout for teens as they probably won’t want to be anywhere near you at this stage. It’s a great chance for them to skulk away and meet some friends. 

You’ll find plenty of restaurants covering a wide range of foods so everyone should manage to find plenty that they like on refuelling stops. You can choose from casual dining to more dressy affairs. Rooms are spacious and comfortable and you may not want to leave them at the end of a hard days’ slog having fun, but if you do, take time to discover the evening entertainment. Put together by professional companies, this is entertainment for all the family.
