Switch Off and Reconnect to Family Holidays in Paradise

INNOVATIVE Gold Coast accommodation provider Holiday Holiday has launched the ‘unplugged’ Family Holiday Experience, offering luxury apartments with thoughtfully appointed kids’ rooms to help families reconnect by taking time out from technology for quality interaction and traditional play.

The initiative was designed to take the stress out of planning holidays for busy families by providing everything necessary for parents and their children to settle straight into spending time together and exploring one of the world’s most spectacular destinations.

Available at selected apartments in the heart of Australia’s world-famous holiday playground of Surfers Paradise, the kids’ room package includes toys, books and games to tempt little ones away from the screen and back to nature and interactive play to enjoy family holidays as they used to be before technology disrupted the experience.

With Australians now spending more time each day on their devices than sleeping (1), clinical and educational & development psychologist, Terri Sheldon said holidays were an opportunity for parents and their children to switch off and invest time in their relationships with one another.

“Holidays are one of the few times parents have with their children when they are not trying to juggle work and education and the many other associated commitments,” Ms Sheldon said.

“It provides the adults with time to focus their attention on relaxing and spending that positive quality time truly connecting with their children. It also provides parents with quality time for each other, and a healthy couple relationship is also integral to a healthy family.

“When you make a commitment to an unplugged holiday, spending time truly connecting with your partner and children, you invest in your family relationships and your children’s resilience and wellbeing,” Ms Sheldon said.

Holiday Holiday director Lee Lee Goh said each family-friendly apartment was carefully appointed to ensure kids felt at home in their home-away-from-home; while parents were free to relax without the hassle of packing all those things the kids simply can’t do without while away.

“We have designed the kids’ rooms so that all mums and dads have to bring is their sense of adventure, because all the essentials are set up for them when they arrive,” Ms Goh said.

“Parents can simply unwind, happy in the knowledge the kids are discovering their own special space complete with soft toys, story books, cuddly blankets and cushions.

“Children will delight in their very own check-in pack, rubber ducky for bath time and sand buckets for those beach adventures. We’ve even popped some plastic cutlery in the kitchen for hassle-free meal times,” she said.

Ms Sheldon said the Unplugged Family Holiday Experience was an invaluable resource for busy parents for whom planning a trip away would otherwise add stress to an already hectic regular schedule.

“Families can get away on a holiday that is truly focused on being with each other and prioritising the connection and relationships,” Ms Sheldon said.

“Having the toys and equipment already available at the holiday accommodation is a great attraction for very busy parents who either don’t have the time or packing space to bring along what they need.

“I would encourage families to make use of this great resource and to take the time to play and truly be with their children,” she said.

Family apartments are available at some of the Gold Coast’s most prestigious addresses, including Circle on Cavill and Chevron Renaissance, all centrally located within the family entertainment mecca of Surfers Paradise and just a stone’s throw from the world-renowned beach.
