A room of their own

It might be a few years (hopefully) before I’m being bombarded by the demands of my own mini traveller when it comes to holidays, but it’s nice to find one option which they should approve of – special junior suites from NH Hotels.

After two years of research, talking to families and child guests, the hotel group discovered that one of the things kids wanted most from a holiday was somewhere they could call their own, so they created a string of suites designed specifically for younger guests.

With seven of the rooms launching at the Hesperia Lanzarote, there’s space for families of three to four, and each one is tailored to age and gender when you book.

So you could find bunk beds, stuffed animals, ceiling mobiles, mirror stickers, Wiis, Playstations, telescopes and electronic dartboards, as well as board games, books and films – plus free movie snacks – as well as features like safety plugs, padded table corners and ultrasound mosquito repellent.

On top of the hotel’s free kids club, there’s other treats like children’s room service, kid-size bathrobes, themed toiletries and a surprise treat every day, along with some discounts and promotions for family-friendly attractions on the island, where the volcanic landscape should go down well with slightly older children too (and their parents).

As well as the suite’s private terrace, the hotel has four swimming pools, four restaurants, four bars, a volcanic sand beach and spa, so adults aren’t too hard done by either.

And while the words ‘tailored junior suite’ might strike fear into the budgeting parent’s heart, prices start from around £155 per room per night in August, sleeping two adults and two children.
