Seeking a luxury family holiday?
The Oroko team has travelled the world researching the perfect family holiday destinations and experiences
Booking your luxury family holiday as far in advance as possible is the best way to get value for money.
Family holidays are incredible experiences: from the multi-generational family gathering to the busy family of teens seeking adventure and fun to the young family requiring restful time on a quiet beach with great facilities.
The Oroko team has travelled the globe researching the latest new luxury hotels, destinations and experiences and have built a wonderful ‘little black book’ of service and accommodation partners. They have relationships with some of the best family-friendly hotels around the world, to ensure you receive excellent value for your family.
Here are five of Oroko’s recommended family destinations for 2019:
Sri Lanka, South Asia and the Maldives, Indian Ocean
Sri Lanka and the Maldives combine to be one of the best twin-centre luxury holidays on offer. It’s only a short flight from Colombo to the Maldives, so you can easily combine Sri Lanka’s vibrant culture and stunning scenery with the beautiful beaches and blue lagoons of the Maldives.
