When travelling with children, a safe, quiet resort with plenty to entertain them is key, but the luxury traveller in you need not miss out either; enter the Lunja Village Hotel, Resort & Aquapark in Agadir, Morocco! Morocco is the ideal destination for some winter sunshine with kids; short flight times, beautiful beaches and plenty to keep you all occupied. The city of Agadir is found in the foothills of the Anti-Atlas Mountains; known for its golf courses, huge fine sandy beach and seaside promenade. British Airways, easyJet, Monarch Airlines, Thomas Cook Airlines, and Thomson Airways all fly to Agadir-Al Massira Airport (AGA), with flight times from London coming in at 3 hours and 40 minutes, the resort is then just an hour from the airport.
Lunja Village overlooks the ocean, tucked between the sea and the mountains in a wonderfully peaceful spot. Set on 5 hectares are 104 chalets, a hotel with 180 apartments and a second hotel with 210 luxury suites. Other facilities include outdoor swimming pools, restaurants and bars, a water park, kids club, tennis courts and a multi-sport field. The resort is clean and comfortable throughout, with a modern and bright design; the resulting mood is uplifting and cheery, perfect for families.
When it comes to accommodation you have a choice of a chalet, apartment or a suite. All sleep 4 across 2 bedrooms and include either a terrace or balcony overlooking the sea, mountains, gardens or swimming pool. There is also a large living area with a sofa and flat-screen TV and a fully equipped open plan kitchen (with fridge, oven, coffee machine, kettle, toaster and electric cooktop) where you can cook your own meals with groceries purchased at the onsite mini market. There is also a bathroom, safe, Wi-Fi in public areas and free parking. The chalets would probably get my vote as they offer a little more space and privacy.
Restaurants & Bars
There is a wide range of restaurants and bars at Lunja Village, including a colourful tearoom (Riad des Saveurs), a 200-seat International restaurant (Le Gourmet), an ice cream parlour, 2 bars and 4 swimming pool snack bars which serve light meals and hot and cold beverages throughout the day; ideal for some refreshment while you relax by the pool and watch the kids play.
Pool & Activities
The water park has to be top of the list for on-site entertainment, with two large water slides and set in beautifully landscaped gardens there’s something for all the family. For a true break, why not give the kids some freedom at the well-staffed Kids Club, available for 4 to 10 year olds; inspiring activities and welcoming facilities mean that they’ll want to keep coming back, giving you that extra bit of time to relax, knowing that they’re happy and safe. There’s plenty to visit in the local area too. The resort is 30 minutes from Agadir City itself and 10 minutes from Taghazout; which is known as the Surfers Paradise. Agadir City has a reputation as the chilled out, trendy city of Morocco; with wide palm lined boulevards and Parisian inspired pavement cafes, restaurants and bars, it’s a far cry from the craziness of Marrakech and is much more suited to families. Learn to surf, play some golf or simply relax on the gorgeous beaches; one of which is just 5 minutes from the resort. There’s also quaint fishing villages, Berber jewellers and local markets to explore.
For a family break with all the facilities that you require on holiday and all the comforts of home, Lunja Village is a beautiful resort to visit for a relaxing break for you and a fun break for them!
