Rydges Esplanade Takes The Pain Out Of Travelling With Kids

July 2, 2013 Hotel Deals No Comments Email Email

Effective today, Rydges Esplanade Resorts has expanded its innovative family style accommodation to a total of six rooms.  This follows the introduction of a prototype in August 2012 that was met with immediate success and a giant thumbs up from parents and their children alike.

WSFH_BANNER_SQUARERydges Esplanade’s Resident Manager, Shannon Craig said the family rooms are designed to take the pain out of travelling with kids and are destined to hit the high notes in parents and children alike.

“Mum, dad and the kids are destined to love our new family style accommodation that features a practical, well considered design marrying the latest in comfort and technology with either ocean views of the Coral Sea or mountain views of the Cairns Hinterland.

“As Cairns’ ‘family’ market continues to thrive, so too does the need to provide appropriate accommodation that goes further than offering token features, but really thinks about the differing needs of a family.

“Rydges Esplanade’s new family accommodation is all about providing mum and dad with a relaxing environment with a separate area for kid’s sleeping and entertainment,” she said.

For parents, the highlight of this room is the superior comfort of a Rydges’ Dream Bed that features either a rainforest or ocean view. “Mum and dad can kick back and relax, watch some ‘tv’ or feast on the view while the kids play to their hearts content in their own dedicated area,” said Shannon.

The children’s ‘domain’ incorporates funky, custom-designed bunk beds.  Up or down, each bed features its own, personal 15”LCD television.  Add to this, each is linked to an X-Box allowing split-screen gaming or DVD viewing.  Additional content can be streamed to the televisions via personal iPads or iPods.  A third, smaller bed come day bed is also included in the children’s nook.

“The best addition is arguably the separate head phone function attached to each child’s bed head console enabling silent entertainment.  You have to love that!” commented Shannon.
