New York, NY
USA

We are parents, too. We think traveling well and traveling with children shouldn’t be mutually exclusive. We have limited vacation time, and we’re not spending our few days of freedom in lousy hotels eating bad food. We know the world is full of wonderful resorts, cool urban escapes and far-flung lodges that can make our time with our kids count. We want it all, and we don’t think it should be so hard to find. So we’re going to share it with you.

Hotels With Epic Arrivals

Henley Vazquez

In most hotels, a check-in experience involves a desk, some information exchange, maybe a welcome drink if you’re lucky. So we’re highlighting three resorts where the arrival includes high-octane adventure. Suitable for active couples and families, but leave the extra littles home for these ones.


Pacuare Lodge, Costa Rica

This eco-lodge tucked into the jungle of Costa Rica brings guests to its door in white water rafts. Sure, you can take an extended (and bumpy) over-land transfer to reach your room, but why would you? Situated on one of the best rafting rivers in the country, Pacuare’s location provides the perfect launch pad for an adventurous getaway in one of our favorite destinations.

Perfect Pair: start your trip at Pacuare, then end with some relaxing time at the Four Seasons Costa Rica.

Book through Passported to receive:

  • Complimentary Breakfast for two daily for duration of the stay

  • Dinner set up by the river bank with candles and firepit

  • Complimentary $50 Spa credit per room

  • Room upgrade, early check-in, and late check-out, subject to availability

  • Complimentary Wi-Fi


What’s a Landing Bar? It’s the place where a cocktail waits for guests at Cambodia’s Shinta Mani Wild after they zipline - yes, zipline! - into the resort. This ultra-lux tented camp in the jungle offers excursions ranging from expedition boating to fishing to patrolling with anti-poaching park rangers. But the part that gets the most bragging rights, aside from the fact that you stayed here, is the zipline arrival. Don’t worry, there’s a bar before the zip, too, if you need some liquid courage.

Perfect Pair: start your Cambodian adventure with a stay in Siem Reap at one of Shinta Mani’s properties there.

Book through Passported to receive:

Shinta Mani’s rates are all inclusive, including food, beverage, activities, airport transfers, and spa.


Six Senses Zighy Bay, Oman

Six Senses Zighy Bay sits on the water, but for adrenaline-seeking guests, the arrival comes from the sky. Join a pro guide on the top of Zighy mountain for a tandem paraglide into the resort, an epic (and epically Instagrammable) arrival experience. Resort activities are more chill, including a kids’ club for those who aren’t at paragliding age yet, but for those want bragging rights for most heart-stopping entrance, you’ve got it.

Perfect Pairing: combine time in Oman with a stop in Dubai.

Book through Passported to receive:

  • Daily Breakfast

  • A complimentary 60-minute Six Senses Signature Spa Treatment for up to two people, per room, once during stay

  • Room upgrade, early check-in, and late check-out, subject to availability

  • Complimentary Wi-Fi
