The Best Luxury Caribbean Hotels For Families

COMO Parrot Cay

COMO Parrot Cay

By Kaitlin Madden


Luxe Caribbean getaways don’t have to be a thing of the past once kids come along. Top tier resorts know well that one of the most indulgent services they can offer is a menu of enticing activities for the pint size set so mom & dad can sneak away to the spa. Ranging from hourly excursions to full-day camps, we’ve rounded up family-friendly offerings at top resorts around the Caribbean (plus options to keep you busy, too).

Paradise, found. 

Cheval Blanc, St. Barth’s

Why you’ll love it: LVMH-owned Cheval Blanc, located on the breathtaking Flamands Bay, is a St. Barth’s institution for good reason. The Guerlain spa is among the top on the island, villas are equipped with private pools, the wine list at the outdoor La Case de L’Isle boasts 200 options, and the staff, known as alchemists, are skilled at creating one-of-a-kind experiences for guests. 

Why the kids will, too: They’ll be welcomed with open arms at Cheval Blanc. Think: kid-size bathrobes and flip flops, house-made baby food purees, and Baudou Paris cribs. Babysitting services can be booked in advance, and alchemists design programs tailored to your children, or custom excursions for the whole family (like the Mermaid Experience, which offers kids a one-on-one chance to swim with the resort’s resident mermaid, or the Little Pirates treasure hunt).

Belmond Cap Juluca

Jumby Bay Island, Antigua 

Why you’ll love it: It’s the closest thing you’ll get to your own private island without, you know, owning a private island. Jumby Bay is a 300-acre island off the coast of Antigua, available only to guests of the resort. On site you’ll find a spa, tennis courts, and three sit-down restaurants, and 40 guest rooms & villas which offer private courtyards, wraparound terraces and outdoor showers. Food & beverage for the entire family is included in the room rate. 

Why the kids will, too: In addition to nanny & babysitting services, the resort offers The Jumby Explorers program, designed for kids ages three to 11, offers cooking, music, wildlife adventures, and beach days, to name a few.

Tips for Doing Disney World in Style

Jordan Rhodes

There are tons of great blog posts and resources out there on how to conquer Disney World. If you’re reading this post then you love Disney, and have probably read most of them. So I decided to take a different approach and help you feel stylish while doing Disney - because let’s face it, it’s not the place to go to feel cute. You’re sweaty, tired from all the mad dashes into the parks, stressed from screaming kids, surrounded by junk food and crazy people in a rush. It can be a little daunting at times. But read this and hopefully it will be a little easier.

48 Hours at The Dewberry in Charleston

Jordan Rhodes

In late October I took a trip to Charleston with my little boy for his birthday. Having gone to college there I feel like somewhat of an expert on the city, but with the ongoing explosion of hotels and restaurants over the last few years, I need to get down there often in order to keep up with the pace of additions. Six visits with my kids over two years means I’ve finally figured out the best way to see the city in two days, so I decided to create a short itinerary for those looking to spend a weekend in the Lowcountry (but don’t forget we have a full city guide to Charleston on our app). And because our guides are for luxury family travel, it means they work with or without kids.

The Carnegie Club at Skibo Castle

Jordan Rhodes

In 1898, Scottish American steel tycoon Andrew Carnegie returned to his beloved birthplace in the Highlands of Scotland with the hope that his wife, Louise, and their daughter, Margaret, would also fall in love with the wild, romantic landscape. After paying a visit to Skibo Castle just north of Inverness, much to Carnegie’s delight his family did fall under its spell, and after purchasing the property one year later they set about updating the dilapidated estate, while also tripling its size. Until Carnegie’s death in 1919, many well-known historical figures, including Winston Churchill, Woodrow Wilson, Rockefellers and Vanderbilts enjoyed the glorious gardens, nine-hole golf course and well-stocked fishing lochs he so lovingly created.

A Family-Friendly Guide to New York's Art Gallery Scene

Jordan Rhodes

By Katharine Earnhardt

The New York gallery scene is one of the best in the world, but it's also SUPER intimidating; there are so many options that aren't always apparent or welcoming, and figuring out a route that's family friendly (i.e. near some snacks) is so tricky.  As the Founder of Mason Lane, a Brooklyn-based art advisory that styles walls nationwide, I'm into art and efficiency, and as a fellow mama I'm always all about family-friendly anything. SO, I wanted to share some ways to approach the New York gallery scene and have your kids enjoy the ride with you.

Stress-free Packing Tips by Alexandra Wilkis Wilson, founder of Gilt Groupe

Jordan Rhodes

As frazzled parents who can barely keep our lives in order – this most definitely includes myself! – the last thing we want to do is organize our closets. So I was thrilled when my friend Lindley Pless of The Sentimentalist introduced me to Gilt Groupe and GlamSquad founder Alexandra Wilson who just launched a brilliant new organization service called Fitz.

Our Favorite Childrenswear and Monogram Team

Jordan Rhodes

Growing up in Arkansas, I was constantly surrounded by gorgeous smocked outfits, and everything was monogrammed. Just like most of my fellow Southerners, I feel like a bit of an expert on classic childrenswear, so when a Greenwich friend introduced me to two local businesses – CPC Childrenswear and Monogram Mary – I immediately fell in love with both and was transported back to my childhood.

Purple Dragon: Private Children's Club in London

Jordan Rhodes

When I moved from Virginia to London 6 years ago, the smaller living spaces and lack of giant backyards wasn't a major concern of mine. Finding the perfect (albeit it tiny) flat in the cutest neighborhood, exploring the plethora of pubs, and going to the newest exhibitions were at the top of my list instead. Fast forward to April 2014 when my daughter Georgia was born, and this all changed!

Tips for Dining in Nice Restaurants with Young Kids

Jordan Rhodes

When I became pregnant with my daughter over six years ago, one of the millions of things that crossed my mind was, “where are we going to eat now?” I wasn’t about to sacrifice the stylish restaurants I loved for fast food, or becoming a hermit just because kids are boisterous, so I set out to find which restaurants in my area (Greenwich, CT and New York City) were cool yet kid-friendly. Fast forward a couple of years and Glimpse Guides was born –

A Truly Great Parenting Book

Jordan Rhodes

Since I was a little girl the thing I’ve always loved to do most is read books. To me nothing is more exciting than starting a new one that you just can’t put down, one that transports you to another place or another time. I also love books about parenting because let’s face it, I definitely need tons of help in this department. So when my sister-in-law Betsy sent me Love That Boy by Ron Fournier after raving about it, I knew it was a must-read because not only is she a parent, she is also an avid reader, as well. And she was spot-on with this recommendation – I devoured it.

Tips for Flying with Kids

Jordan Rhodes

I'm not going to lie. I dread flights with my kids. They cry, throw food, kick the seats in front of them, stare awkwardly at the people behind them. During boarding, I literally run down the aisle to our seats and avoid all eye contact with my fellow passengers, because I know, at some point, they are going to hate me, and I can't bear any type of interaction beforehand or I begin to feel guilt (okay, I'm being a bit dramatic - there are always a few tolerant, helpful passengers who are, themselves, parents, and to them, I could not be more grateful. But I emphasize the word "few.")
