WHO: Sani Resort
WHAT: Sani Resort, Greece
WHY: Sani Resort is a luxury, world- class destination where parents and kids can enjoy a little slice of heaven in Halkidiki, Greece. Set in a majestic 1,000-acre ecological reserve, with 7km of Blue-flagged sandy beaches, over 20km of forest trails and 270-acres of wetlands, this is one hotel reset you never want to leave (trust us we have been!). With luxury tailor-made accommodation to suit all styles of families across 5 different hotels, UK OFSTED childcare facilities, eco-activities, outdoor activities, exclusive kids menus and more pools than we can count. A holiday at Sani is a holiday you'll never forget!
Having recently visited, I can confess everything you have heard, read or seen about Sani Resort is true! Besides the luxe accommodation and facilities, what seriously impressed me is that a resort this size encourages guests to reconnect with nature and to enjoy a more sustainable holiday footprint. They are also the first certified carbon neutral resort in Greece. Congratulations Sani on scooping Gold.
I've never heard a less than amazing review of a Sani resort!
Having travelled to the resort a few times I can single-handedly say it's a paradise for kids! The room designs are incredibly practical for children, with Stokke cribs, changing tables, Annabel Karmel food and an amazing variety of kids clubs. No detail is overlooked at Sani! Everything has been considered to ensure parents and babies have the most magical holiday. Plus, it's refreshing to see such a large resort have such strong eco-credentials.
Amazing rooms and kids camp!
Great to see Sani owning its space as a pioneer for eco family travel! I was very impressed by Sani's eco focus, and I love that sustainability weaves throughout the resort - from the kid's club programme to the herbal gardens.

WHO: Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort
WHAT: Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort, St. Lucia
WHY: Windjammer Landing is a luxurious family resort located on the beautiful island of St. Lucia. Spacious accomodations give parents peace of mind, offering a private retreat to return to after a long day on the beach, where they can watch the sunset over the beautiful Caribbean Sea. It stands out as the best family resort because it offers a range of activities that cater to all ages, including a kids' club, teen activities, and adult-oriented facilities. Windjammer Landing’s all inclusive package means that everyone can enjoy their trip worry-free, knowing all of the resort's incredible amenities are at their fingertips. The judges had plenty to say...
We recently sent a colleague to review this hotel and I have never seen them look so happy, refreshed and reinvigorated after a press trip. That in itself speaks volumes about the sort of hotel this is. The family offering is top notch and the scoring was so, so close. Well done Windjammer on scooping a JDA.
Sounds like heaven!
I don't think any other hotel in St. Lucia is like this - it offers so many lovely activities for kids.
Great Design - and sanctuary for families -what a lovely resort!
