1Warwick Le Lagon Resort & Spa

Vanuatu, 4.5 stars

Located in Port Vila, Warwick Le Lagon Resort & Spa has yet again claimed the coveted top spot in our South Pacific category. With its sweeping views of the Coral Sea, stellar service and secluded pools, it’s easy to see why this 143-room family paradise is a repeat winner. Highlights for parents include three restaurants and a full-service spa while adventure-fuelled little ones can ogle Vanuatu’s scintillating sea life in the calm, crystal-clear waters of Erakor Lagoon. And if you’re looking for a spot of local fun? Tour the Summit Garden and bask in the glorious waterfalls at Mele Cascades before breaking for lunch at Port Vila’s Mama’s Markets.


2 The Rarotongan Beach Resort & Spa

Cook Islands, 4 stars

3 Sheraton Samoa Beach Resort

Samoa, 5 stars

Not only will you slip off your shoes when you enter The Ratotongan Beach Resort & Spa, you will also slip off your worries; the moment you lay eyes on the kilometre-long stretch of prime beachfront at Aroa Beach, you will feel an overwhelming urge to relax. The three-bedroom villas provide the ultimate family retreat, complete with ensuite bathrooms, Jacuzzis, full kitchens, sitting and dining rooms. For those lucky ones who choose Pool Villas, there’s a private pool. And the best bit? Kids under 11 stay and play for free! Drop the little ones off at the Cook Islands’ only kids’ club, Moko’s Kids Club, and pamper yourself with the ultimate South Seas indulgence at SpaPolynesia.

Set along an idyllic stretch of white sand in Samoa, Sheraton Samoa Beach Resort is the place for an extravagant family escape. Settle in and soak up the ocean views from one of the 133 rooms and suites, before stepping out and exploring all the resort has to offer. Snorkel alongside reefs and turtles or explore what land has to offer in a tropical national park. Adrenaline junkies can participate in the many water sports that Pure Ocean has to offer, while those that wish to conserve energy can indulge in a treatment at the Manaia Polynesian Spa. Finish off your day by watching the sun set from one of many waterside restaurants and bars.


4 The Edgewater Resort & Spa

Cook Islands, 4 stars

5 Holiday Inn Resort Vanuatu

Vanuatu, 4 stars

The Cook Islands is the perfect Pacific playground, boasting natural splendour and a laidback atmosphere. The Edgewater is the largest resort on Rarotonga, offering a range of accommodation options in its 280 rooms, suites and villas. Little ones can embrace island life at the complimentary Coconut Kids’ Club designed for four- to 12-year-olds, where they’ll learn about local culture and customs, wildlife and natural arts and crafts.

Water babies will be in paradise at this resort beside glistening Erakor Lagoon in Port Vila. The Beach Pool is at the heart of the action, with its paddling pool, mushroom-shaped fountain and tipping buckets. Families can try their hand at stand-up paddle boarding or sailing a catamaran, while young guests from three to 12 can take a break in the kids’ club. For a special bonding experience, book a Night Under the Stars dinner, with dazzling live entertainment.


6 Poppy’s on the Lagoon

Vanuatu, 4 stars

7 Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora

French Polynesia, 5 stars

This boutique resort is the picture of tropical paradise, with palms gently swaying in the trade winds. Studios, suites, bungalows, villas and apartments mean there’s a retreat for families of all sizes, while kids (and parents) can take classes with a local artist, tour the lagoon on a traditional outrigger canoe and snorkel straight from the beach. If you’re keen to discover more of Vanuatu, Poppy’s can organise a package with its sister resort, Friendly Beach, on the black-sand beach of Tanna Island.

Bora Bora is a byword for a turquoise tropical paradise, and this Four Seasons resort of overwater bungalows and beachfront villas represents its pinnacle. Revel in the beauty of French Polynesia as you snorkel coral gardens or soar over the lagoon on a parasailing adventure. The Kids For All Seasons programme, based at the Tamarii Club, welcomes young guests with special pack and shares the wonders of the outdoors, including discovery alongside the resort marine biologist, crab hunts and traditional Tahitian water sports.


8 Aquana Beach Resort

Vanuatu, 4 stars

9 Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora Beach Resort

French Polynesia, 5 stars

There are just 16 bungalows at this boutique escape beside the lagoon, and nannies rather than a kids’ club to keep little ones entertained all day long. Whether your children want a day in the water or an afternoon of games, their nannies will be by their side. You can even venture out to discover the other islands surrounding the resort, or get a taste of the local culture with a visit to a school or village.

This heart-shaped island just 15 minutes from Tahiti will revitalise your family with sun, sand and crystalline waters. Opt for a beach bungalow or the two-bedroom villa dedicated to French artist François Ravello, whose paintings now decorate the walls. Dive into the local culture with a guided tour, exploring the water by jet ski or flyboard, and heading out on a dolphin or seasonal whale watching cruise.


10 Le Méridien Tahiti

French Polynesia, 5 stars


Traditional Polynesian architecture with a modern touch gives this beachfront resort its unique flair. The water is where it’s at for families, so take advantage of complimentary kayaking, beach volleyball and snorkelling. The spectacular white-sand lagoon pool is the largest of its kind in the South Pacific and don’t leave without tasting Le Méridien’s signature éclair, adapted to encapsulate each destination in one delicious dessert.
