Breakaway - Kids 'Camp' in Hainan Island, China!

The June hols are round the corner. If you haven’t planned what to do, here’s a China immersion getaway with a difference. I don’t know if your kids will be improving much on their Chinese, but for fab fun, how about sending them off to ‘Summer Camp’ while you luxe away at the Mandarin Oriental in Sanya? That’s on Hainan Island, which is a little more tropical than the rest of China. I checked out the pictures of the hotel and it looks pretty tempting – not just the spa and villas but the pristine beach too!

The draw here is that they are pushing their "CoCo the Pirate" Children's Summer Camp for kids with a three-night promotion from CNY5,888 (S$1,200). The package includes room stay and brekkie for two adults and two kids, complimentary extra bed and the ‘summer camp’ for one child. Any extra chickadees have to pay CNY 450 per day at ‘camp’.

Sounds like a glorified kids club, but it keeps the young ‘uns busy with activities like treasure hunts, eco sessions, orienteering, snorkeling (in their sheltered Coral Beach), cooking lessons, art and crafts, etc. They get a whole lot of freebies as well, like pirate t-shirt and bandana, cuddly toy, lunch, etc.

So what do you do while they are suitably engaged? Luxe out, of course. Get pampered at their award winning spa village (check out their VIP spa villas), paste yourself on the beach with a good book, do tai qi, qigong, dine, relax, explore the nature reserves, sightsee, shop, whatever. Every one enjoys themselves. It’s a win win situation. (The "CoCo the Pirate" Children's Summer Camp takes place from 27 June to 22 August 2010.)
