Four Seasons woos kids
Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts in Riyadh has a way of eliminating “bore” from kids’ vocabulary. The group believes that what makes a hotel stay a very special experience is knowing that the little extras are taken care of.
From milk and cookies at bedtime to full activity programmes, children of all ages are finding that travel with their parents to Four Seasons worldwide is both fun and educational.
For the very tiny ones, all Four Seasons properties offer cribs, strollers, high chairs, play pens, bottle warmers, soothers, bibs and many more baby necessities. Babysitting services are not only available they are specifically chosen for their experience and reliability. A hotel doctor will also be on call if necessary.
Kid-size bathrobes are available and Four Seasons concierges also have a full list of nearby clothing and toy shops, amusement parks, children’s museums and other children’s oriented activities in and around town.
The properties also have children’s menus with the accent on imaginative and healthy food, while a selection of kids’ videos are just a phone call away to the Concierge.
Four Seasons Resorts run specially devised and complimentary ‘Kids for All Seasons’ programmes providing fun and adventure for five to 12 year olds.
At Hotel Amman, a whole host of items is available to cater for babes in arms to young adventurers. The range is from no-tear shampoo to thermometers, soft and bath toys to teething soothers.
Children receive a small gift and cookies and milk on arrival and there are colouring books, crayons, puzzles and board games to help keep young minds occupied. All the restaurants have a range of activities to offer children at the table and only four hours advance notice is needed for babysitting services.
For older children, complimentary outdoor activities include swimming and there is a choice of tennis, horseback riding, golf, rowing and funfairs all nearby. Adjacent to the hotel are the Botanical gardens and nearby are The Pyramids, museums and other cultural pursuits to keep young minds active.
Special meals designed to appeal to even the most discerning of young palates are available at Hotel Riyadh. This Four Seasons property also ensures that even its youngest guests receive the full Four Seasons experience when it comes to pampering.
Youngsters from age five to 12 are given a personal invitation to participate in the Kids for all Seasons programme which operates daily from 9am to 5pm, all year round. Exciting indoor and outdoor activities are designed to be fun as well as educational and offer an ideal way for youngsters to make new friends.
