About Sanctuary by Sirromet
Sanctuary by Sirromet tented pavilions are located hillside, following the natural contour down to the lagoon which is home to a variety of native wild life and surrounded by paperbark trees and giant scribbly gums. Each has a private balcony floating above the landscape, giving guests a ‘tree house’ impression looking across the canopy and over the lake.
The site is home to a large population of wildlife, including kookaburras, goannas, owls, a large variety of native birds and resident wallabies who graze freely around and under the decks as guests take in the views over a breakfast hamper or with a glass of wine as the sun goes down.
The 18 spacious tents, comprised of 15 couples’ tents, two for families and one specially fitted out bridal suite, are made from durable double-layered all-weather canvas and offer a natural yet elegant décor in keeping with the surroundings.
The interiors feature luxurious beds with top of the line linen and bedding, bedside tables and lamps, and reverse cycle air-conditioning to cater for all seasons.

Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas has extended its wellness and sustainability ethos to include kids – introducing Grow With Six Senses, is a new framework for the kids programs which incorporate six dimensions of wellness into all activities for younger guests.
Grow With Six Senses encourages younger guests to understand more about what’s going on inside them and in the world around them. The approach is to learn through natural play and adventure and, as they journey through each activity, they’ll get a new stamp for their personal Six Senses passport.
“Grow With Six Senses incorporates the six dimensions of wellness (social, environmental, physical, spiritual, emotional and intellectual) and brings kids ‘back to basics’ in order to reconnect with nature and others around them,” said Vice President of Spa and Wellness Anna Bjurstam. “This framework ensures a holistic offering for the minds of our little guests. We’re really proud of what each resort has created and we know families are going to love the experience too.”
Programs vary from resort to resort, but introduce specifically designed physical activities, yoga and mindfulness, local culture, sustainability and social experiences. There’s also the chance to pamper with tailor-made spa treatments. The focus is on offering something a little out of the ordinary to attract even the most reticent joiner. Forget algebra, how about being a little mixologist? Children learn how to make their own toothpaste, facial mask, body scrub, after sun lotion and edible water bubbles. Can’t sit still? Bring on the cookery, yoga, treasure hunts, ball games and fitness challenges. Something more local? Activities at Six Senses Yao Noi include roselle harvesting and flying yoga, while at Six Senses Fiji, opening in April, kids can make their own snacks using a solar oven. Six Senses Laamu has a beautiful garden for salad foraging and offers junior Zumba and healthy cookie making.
It’s not all about doing, there are plenty of being options, for example simple meditation with Six Senses Samui and Six Senses Yao Noi incorporating the art of singing bowls. Children’s innate creativity comes into play dabbling with Vietnamese origami and painting at Evason Ana Mandara and Six Senses Ninh Van Bay. Six Senses Con Dao includes small visits to the local school to which parents are also invited. Six Senses Douro Valley offers tile painting and Six Senses Kaplankaya ceramic decorating. At Six Senses Zighy Bay, kids can get to grips with Arabic lessons.
Playtime includes joining the gardeners in the resorts’ organic gardens for anything from seed planting to mushroom harvesting. Other activities can include making kites and flowers with recycled paper, a local farm visit, finding dinosaur fossils, recycled shell crafts, purifying water, candle making and growing seeds in a coconut shell. Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain runs a summer camp every Friday in July and August with cooking classes, games and barbecues.
March 20, 2018| Well-being is not Just for Grownups at Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas.
Each resort has its own comprehensive program, with a full list of Grow With Six Senses activities that
can be viewed on the web page of each resort under the EXPERIENCES tab. Visit sixsenses.com, contact the resort directly or call your travel agent to reserve your summer family escape accommodations. Many of the activities are complimentary or have a nominal fee.

From 1 March 2018 the newly expanded and transformed San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) will join the CityPASS program, in tandem with the official launch that day of the 2018 San Francisco CityPASS program.
Each 2018 San Francisco CityPASS ticket booklet costs $89 for adults, $69 for children, ages 5-11. Ticket booklets, which can be purchased online at CityPASS.com/san-francisco or at any of the CityPASS partner attractions listed above, are valid for nine consecutive days, including the first day of use.
CityPASS enables visitors to save 45 percent off combined admission to San Francisco’s top attractions, and includeing a Cable Car and Muni Bus Passport, good for three consecutive days of unlimited rides on all Muni buses, vintage streetcars, and, of course, the city’s iconic cable cars. While other visitors are paying $7 for each one-way cable car ride, CityPASS holders can hop on and off as many times as they like.
Also included in each San Francisco CityPASS ticket booklet is prepaid admission to the California Academy of Sciences, a Blue & Gold Fleet Bay Cruise, the Aquarium of the Bay on San Francisco’s lively PIER 39, and an option ticket, allowing visitors to choose between SFMOMA and the Exploratorium, an interactive laboratory/museum that encourages families to investigate the world through science, experimentation and art.
The first museum on the West Coast dedicated to modern and contemporary art, SFMOMA added nearly three times more gallery space with its $305 million expansion. Much more than a spacious home for renowned modern and contemporary artworks, the transformed SFMOMA gives patrons room to absorb, ponder and reflect. Two favourite contemplation spaces for visitors are the Living Wall, a vertical garden stretching 150 feet along the Pat and Bill Wilson Sculpture Terrace and composed of nearly 20,000 plants; and the glass-walled Roberts Family Gallery, whose Roman steps offer an inviting gathering spot that currently overlooks Richard Serra’s monumental sculpture Sequence.
Free public tours are offered daily on-site, giving both new and repeat visitors a deep dive into an impressive collection spread over seven floors. Visitors can also book multilingual private tours led by trained art historians, or download SFMOMA’s immersive iOS app, including hundreds of 60–90 second audio reflections by composers, comedians, artists and playwrights, among others.
Worthy of a full-day visit, SFMOMA has several dining options to keep visitors energized, including Café 5, serving California fusion fare and located adjacent to a sculpture garden; Sightglass, a local artisanal coffee bar; and In Situ, a fine-dining restaurant that recently received a Michelin star.
Two Australian consumer family travel media companies – Bound Round Pty Ltd and Elwin Media Pty Ltd – have today announced a merger of their respective businesses – Family Travel and Out & About with Kids – effective immediately.
The two brands will operate as a singular brand, Family Travel, and Bound Round says the addition of Out & About with Kids magazine and digital to its stable of owned channels will increase its scale and reach in the travel segment.
“Over the years, both brands have established themselves as innovative and trusted names in the family travel segment. Joining forces enables us to operate with increased scale and improved efficiencies, as well creating opportunities for us to create and deliver more market-leading content and family travel offers for our community,” said Bound Round Founder & CEO, Janeece Keller.
As a result of the merger, Out & About with Kids publisher Elisa Elwin has been appointed as the Head of Family Travel Magazine and Partnerships, and Executive Editor at Bound Round. She will be responsible for the delivery of the editorial strategy and direction of the Family Travel brand in collaboration with Natasha Keller, Bound Round’s Head of Online, Marketing and Communications. Tatyana Leonov has been appointed editor of the print publication, which will continue as Out & About With Kids until relaunch in the second half of 2018.
“While the broader print industry may be undergoing a period of strain and disruption caused by the growth of digital, this is also a time of great opportunity. As a small, independent publisher, now was the perfect time to harness the power of a collaborative partnership,” said Elisa Elwin, adding that partnerships are key to the success of any independent publisher.
The merger between the two brands, in the digital space, will be a longer transition. Outandaboutwithkids.com.au will continue to operate alongside familytravel.com.au for the remainder of 2018, with content and campaigns to run across both sites and to both audiences.

All residences and villas come with a guest experience maker (GEM) and residence guests have the option of a complimentary nanny.
Easy access is available from Nadi International Airport via a 35-minute private Six Senses speed boat from Denarau Marina and the option of a 10-minute helicopter. The resort also hosts two full-service marinas for guests’ private yachts.

“I’m particularly happy to see Club Med secure a base in the Seychelles, one of the three most luxurious destinations, alongside the Maldives and Mauritius,” said Henri Giscard d’Estaing, President of Club Med. “In association with New Mauritius Hotels, our prestigious partner and respected luxury hotel operator, we will be able to offer our guests a new premium destination that fulfils all their expectations from 2020 onwards.”
Club Med is working alongside NMH (New Mauritius Hotels), the largest and longest-established hotel group in Mauritius, where it operates all the Beachcomber hotels on the island.

The little bear from ‘darkest Peru’ has returned to the big screen with the release of ‘PADDINGTON 2’ on 10 November 2017 and, since Belmond British Pullman has a starring role in the film, Belmond is celebrating too (perfect for families!).
Adventurous travel packages to the famous bear’s homeland are on offer – ‘A Bear’s Life with Belmond’ – and may even include marmalade treats served on a rooftop overlooking Lima’s beachfront, and discovering Peruvian oranges growing along the route to Machu Picchu!
POSTCARDS FROM PERU
The new four and seven night packages aptly begin in Lima – where Paddington’s Aunt Lucy lives – at the city’s most stylish address, Belmond Miraflores Park, overlooking the seafront and bustling promenade. From the hotel’s rooftop, children can gaze across the ocean, dreaming of their upcoming adventure as they feast on sticky marmalade breakfast treats and get into character with their very own red bush hat, courtesy of Belmond.
From Lima, the journey takes guests to Cusco, and one of the city’s most treasured landmarks – Belmond Hotel Monasterio. Families can explore the city on foot or spend time meandering through the hotel’s stunning courtyard, cloisters and flower-lined walkways, stopping to make a wish at the 300-year old cedar tree and mythical fountain. After a long day of sightseeing, children are invited to make bear-shaped cookies with the chef – a sweet-tasting stopover to help bear cubs re-charge for their next escapade.
Next on the itinerary is one of the most highly-anticipated experiences in Peru; a journey to Machu Picchu aboard Belmond Hiram Bingham – the country’s most famous 1920s-inspired vintage train. Just as Paddington arrived into London by train, families will arrive by rail in unrivalled luxury, through wild river canyons and lush jungle, to the heart of the Inca Empire. Passengers will be gifted a special jar of organic marmalade with a map to spot where the most succulent Peruvian oranges are grown along route.
Before taking the train back down from Machu Picchu, guests spend a night at Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, the only hotel to be situated at the gates of the ancient citadel and overlooking the breath taking sacred peaks. Hidden within the tropical plantation and garden terrace are jars of marmalade, just waiting to be discovered by mini explorers.
Guests on the longer seven-night package are transported to the heart of the Sacred Valley and oasis of calm Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado, exclusively located on the shores of the Urubamba River. A special Paddington-themed ‘movies under the stars’ night offers family fun by the wild-running river, with cosy woollen blankets provided to wrap up warm, popcorn waiter service and dessert bar inspired by the film.
The four-night ‘A Bear’s Life with Belmond’ package is priced at $3,158/£2,835 per person and includes one night at Belmond Miraflores Park, two nights at Belmond Hotel Monasterio on B&B and one night full board at Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, with one day train journey aboard Belmond Hiram Bingham and entrance to Machu Picchu, Paddington-themed activities across properties, transfers, and sightseeing tours and is valid for travel from now through 2018. The package does not include international and domestic flights, airport departure taxes and travel insurance. Prices per child are on request.
The seven-night ‘A Bear’s Life with Belmond’ package is priced at $4,804/£3,625 and includes the above plus a second night at Belmond Miraflores Park, two nights at Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado on B&B and return domestic flights, Lima/Cusco.
MONTH OF THE MOVIES
During November and December 2017, guests wishing to embrace the magic of the film will be able to join in the fun as Paddington-themed activities take place daily across Belmond’s Peruvian portfolio. At Belmond Palacio Nazarenas in Cusco families can enjoy a Paddington-afternoon tea time in the hotel’s ‘secret garden’ with preservative sandwiches in generous supply. All activities are offered complimentary to guests staying overnight at any of the six hotels and/or travelling aboard Belmond Hiram Bingham.
LONDON – Paddington Afternoon Tea journeys
Belmond British Pullman offers steam-hauled Paddington Afternoon Tea journeys departing London Victoria Station on 2 December 2017, 16 February 2018 and 7 April 2018. Prices start from £550, based on two adults and two children (under 16) travelling together.

It’s not often that a resort lays on something extra during peak school holiday periods, but Nanuku Auberge Resort Fiji has released a new offer inclusive of a free one-way air transfer, between its private aerodrome and Nadi International Airport, and a return scenic drive road transfer for guests choosing to stay eight nights at the luxury all-villa resort during school holidays*.
The special offer applies at any time of the year for guests staying a minimum of five nights but, subject to availability at time of booking, families who stay for eight nights during school holidays can now also benefit from the deal, valid for travel until December 2018.
Guests have the option of choosing between the resort’s full board or bed and breakfast options as part of the offer.
Nanuku Auberge Resort’s general manager, Sascha Hemmann, says the upside of the resort having its own aerodrome is that guests can travel to Pacific Harbour on the same day they fly into Nadi Airport – available on a 24/7 basis – unlike travel to the Mamanuca or Yasawa Islands, which are largely governed by daytime-only boat transfer schedules.
“Our private aerodrome is literally a two-minute drive from the resort and our guests also have the option of upgrading from a fixed-wing aircraft to a helicopter for the 20-minute flight which can actually land on our on-site helipad.”
The resort has also commenced construction on 13 new luxury one and two-bedroom Auberge Beach Villas due for completion and ready for guests next year.
*Conditions apply. Subject to availability at time of booking.
