Family Holiday

Active Lifestyle in Motion

In addition to offering an extensive array of outdoor activities, including land and water sports, the resort is home to one of the largest waterparks in the region, featuring seven exhilarating family-friendly waterslides, including body, rafting and freefalling slides, all adhering to carefully devised safety standards. It also comes with a dedicated playful pool for babies that are too young to use the slides alone. Venturing out to the beach area, travellers will find a full collection of watersports for them to experiment with, including jet skis and water ski, SUP and paddleboards, canoes and banana rides. Steps away from the resort’s private beach is also one of the finest spots for scuba diving on the island, a perfect place to explore the deep blue underneath.

To dry off after a morning of aquatic adventure, gather with friends to play a match of tennis, basketball, beach volleyball, or beach soccer in one of the resort’s excellent ball courts. Engage with friends and family further in games like darts or boccia. The resort also offers aerobics, zumba and dance classes for those seeking to move to the beats, energizing your spirits and help you burn off some extra calories the fun way.
