Andalucía’s timeless beachfront resort, the Marbella Club, has introduced a dedicated Tiny Tots program designed specifically for families travelling with children below the age of five, who aren’t yet limited to the restrictions of school holidays. The offering forms part of the hotel’s wider wellbeing series, which sets out to target key ‘life stages’.

A family-owned and managed hotel for generations, Marbella Club offers an extensive villa collection, spectacularly attentive service, a 5,000-square-metre Kids’ Club and holistic wellness facilities, offering a magical utopia for little globetrotters and a welcome retreat for worn-out parents in need of some TLC. Ever mindful of the challenges (and excess luggage!) of travelling with tots, this new program invites young families to take advantage of the tranquil quieter months along with off-season prices, personalised childcare amenities, inclusive childcare and a host of other thoughtful perks and activities, designed for the unique needs of newborns and toddlers, and for maximum parental relaxation.

The Tiny Tots program includes:

A ‘Travelling with Tots’ Arrival Kit
A comprehensive selection of baby essentials on loan including Moses baskets and cots, high chairs, prams, play pens, monitors, blackout blinds, bottle warmers and bath mats that can be reserved in advance, allowing parents the elusive luxury of travelling light. Specific nappies, baby milk and other supplies can also be pre-ordered.

Welcome gifts for children
These include natural bath products, a personalised hooded bath towel per child, ‘Never Grow Up’ T-shirts and baby-grows, as well as colouring books and healthy toddler take-home recipe cards. Guests of the program can also make use of a complimentary Tick Tock Turtle Clocks that use sleep cycle detection tech to assist children in waking up in the best part of their sleep cycle. For older children, in-room iPads display mindfulness apps, embracing the benefits to be gained from slow breathing techniques. Nurturing their ‘perfectly imperfect’ approach and playful spirit of the past, the Marbella Club constantly fosters enquiring minds on a magical journey of discovery. The Ultimate Marbella Club Tots Sensory Trail encourages children to discover the hidden beauties of the resort from indigenous flowers and wildlife to local herbs and vegetables and present their findings at the Kids’ Club in return for a special prize.

Inclusive babysitting
Each family will benefit from two hours of inclusive babysitting daily thanks to Marbella Club’s collaboration with Peter Rabbit Childcare Services, a dedicated team of qualified and CACHE-accredited bilingual nannies. While little minds are fully occupied, parents can carve out some essential relaxation and embrace the quietude of ‘me-time’ with complimentary access to the sea-facing Thalassotherapy spa. Additional babysitting and night nannies are available on request.

Kids’ Club access and a Baby Sensory Class
Guests of the program will be granted complimentary access to the extensive Kids’ Club when accompanied by a caretaker. A pure and wholesome wonderland, every ingredient has been carefully considered to form a safe and playful space that delights children with hours of fun, amusement and relaxed learning with an extensive program of age-appropriate activities run by a dedicated team of credited bilingual guides. Each child booked onto the Tiny Tots program will be entitled to a complimentary Hartbeeps or Babybeeps sensory-based activity class and healthy lunches suggested by Marbella Club’s resident nutritionist.

Villa accommodation
After an enthralling day, the extensive villa collection at the Marbella Club – featuring elegant interiors and authentic local architecture – lend themselves beautifully to multigenerational travel. The two-bedroom Andalusian-style villas in the heart of the resort boast sun-soaked patios and bougainvillea-filled gardens, fully equipped modern kitchens and luxurious bedrooms. Expansive yet discreet, the villas allow for independence, flexibility and, most importantly, unrestricted noise and fun while still providing the full benefits and seamless service of a luxury resort. As the sun sets, tired minds can unwind with the help of sleep-inducing pillow sprays and a Sleep Wellness tea, while a nightly bedtime story based on traditional Spanish tales and folklore, accompanied by warm almond milk with a hint of cinnamon, will be delivered to each villa every evening.

Marbella Club’s Tiny Tots rogram is priced from €6,544 for four nights in a two-bedroom villa on a B&B basis, return airport transfers, complimentary access to the spa, golf resort and Kids’ Club, complimentary laundry for children under five, welcome amenities and bespoke baby items, two hours of accredited daily nanny service, a sensory trail kit per family, a Tick Tock Turtle Clock per family, one Hartbeeps/Babybeeps class per stay per child and age-appropriate bikes/trollies.
