If you’re anything like us, a blank calendar just begs to be filled with some fun plans. And what’s more exciting than jetting off somewhere wonderful with your nearest and dearest? Sometimes, that might look like exploring a European city, getting back to nature with an idyllic farm stay, going skiing, or renting a lake house. In other instances, it’s about finding a fantastic trip-making hotel—whether that’s a dude ranch, a beach resort in Hawaii, or a sleek urban retreat—that ticks all the boxes for traveling with kids. While the enduring appeal of favorites such as Nemacolin and Turtle Bay Resort will never fade, staying at a brand-new property with all the bright, shiny bells and whistles does add a certain level of novelty to a family vacation. 

Scroll on for nine super exciting hotels opening in 2024 that parents will want to have on their radar before booking upcoming travels.

1. Silvestre Nosara Hotel & Residences, Nosara, Costa Rica

(Opening January 2024)

Silvestre Nosara Hotel & Residences invites guests of all ages to experience a true sense of pura vida. While LOs get their wiggles out at creative movement class, parents can recharge with a massage or sip cocktails by the pool. Surf lessons are sure to be a hit with adventurous teens. The residential-style accommodations boast all the conveniences of home (ahem, kitchens, dining areas, and washers/dryers) and then some (hello, patios with grills and private barrel saunas). What’s more, the sustainably-minded property opened earlier this month, making it the perfect place to book for spring break!

While the Maldives is well regarded as a romantic destination for honeymoons and babymoons, it’s also a great place to bring LOs. A private island haven for families, SO/ Maldives supplies both beachfront and over-water villas with indoor/outdoor living spaces, private pools, and ocean views, plus three restaurants, clubs for kids and teens, and babysitting for tots at no extra cost. Bonus: It’s just a short 15-minute speedboat ride from Malé Velana International Airport, which cuts down on the time from sitting on the tarmac to splashing in the turquoise water. 

4. Maxx Royal Bodrum Resort, Bodrum, Turkey

(Opening May 2024)

Love fun in the sun with the family and ready to test the water, err air, on a longer haul trip? Explore a coastal paradise that’s further from home at Maxx Royal Bodrum Resort, a member of Leading Hotels of the World, that’s perched on the Bay of Göltürkbükü. Besides contemporary suites and delicious food, the new property possesses a kids club called Maxxi Land that brings the excitement factor up a notch with age-appropriate activities—from crafts to pool games. Baby gear (don’t worry about bringing a crib, bath stuff, or monitor) and babysitting services are also available. 

5. Viceroy at Ombria Algarve, Algarve, Portugal

(Opening Summer 2024)

In need of some inspiration for a fabulous summer vacation with the kiddos? Look no further than the sun-splashed southern region of Portugal that’s known for its beaches and surf breaks. Debuting in 2024, the Viceroy at Ombria Algarve will provide a mix of rooms, suites, and residences with balconies to fit families of all sizes. The buzzy new property is also set to offer a kids club, two family pools, eight food and beverage outlets to tempt even picky eaters, babysitting services (because date nights hit differently on holiday), and an 18-hole golf course with lessons and junior club rentals.

(Opening Summer 2024)

A splurge-worthy domestic escape that’s guaranteed to make nature lover’s dreams come true when it opens this summer, The Dunlin, Auberge Resorts Collection will sit on 2,000 acres of coastal grounds — that includes a working farm, 20 miles of riverfront, scenic trails, and marshlands for kids and parents to discover together. We’re also looking forward to the pool, farm-to-table food, full-service spa, main lodge complete with a library, and wraparound porch for kicking back with a glass of sweet tea, cottage-style accommodations, and warm southern hospitality.

Slated to open its doors in the Hostess City of the South this February, the Hotel Bardo Savannah bills itself as an urban resort with a local feel.

As a member of Leading Hotels of the World, guests can expect thoughtful service and ample amenities. The treasure chest at check-in, afternoon programming at Camp Bardo (pizza making, anyone?), in-room canvas play tents, and turndown with milk and cookies will surely earn parents extra points with kiddos.
