Dubai, UAE, May 2012 – Already firmly established as an award-winning family beach resort, the 5-star Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa has further carved out its place as a preferred family destination through its partnership with the Worldwide Kids Company.
The resort’s two children’s clubs, CoolZone (for 4-12 year-olds) and ChillZone (13 years and older), now feature enhanced activity programmes that are facilitated by coordinators that have been trained by the Worldwide Kids Company. Its association with the Worldwide Kids Company means the resort is further cementing its commitment to provide exceptional childcare in an environment that has been independently checked to ensure best practice policies for health and safety.
“Worldwide Kids Company is proud to be working with Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa to assist them with their commitment to improving their family services and facilities. We believe that professional childcare is key to establishing and building a strong core family clientele and we look forward to further developing truly world class childcare services at Dubai’s only true resort,” said Richard Liddle, the company’s director.
Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa, the flagship resort of Jebel Ali International Hotels, recently added two prestigious family leisure and travel awards to its collection of kudos. UK and Irish travel agents gave it a Travel Agents Choice Award in the category for the ‘world’s best hotel, group or resort of the year for families’. The resort also walked away with top honours at the World Travel Awards where it was crowned ‘World’s Leading Family Resort’.
“The resort has tons of things to do and as far as we’re concerned, our younger guests should also have the pleasure of enjoying a range of fun activities,” said Fredrik Reinisch, General Manager of the Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa. “While CoolZone offers ‘master chef’, beach Olympics, sandcastle competitions, water fun and a kids karaoke night to name some of the activities, ChillZone has been developed as a laid-back and independent holiday atmosphere hang-out where our all-important teenage guests can relax.”
In 2011 the 5-star beach resort also added a series of family-friendly additions to its refurbished Palm Tree Court & Spa hotel, which is presently being expanded with four luxury beachfront villas that will add 74 additional junior suites and 2-bedroom family suites. Bookings for the new suites are already being taken for stays from October 2012.
David Thomson, Regional General Manager of Jebel Ali International Hotels said the tie-up was an affirmation of Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa’s positioning as a 5-star family beach resort. “The resort is now firmly established as a one-of-a-kind family destination. This is one more step in a continuing process to give families the chance to share an unforgettable beach holiday with special experiences for each member of the family, no matter what their age.”
