Baby-friendly Holidays

Travelling with a baby needn't be daunting. With a little preparation (and a few helpful extras), it can not only be fairly stress-free, but also an incredibly memorable holiday. There’s nothing quite like taking your little one for their first paddle in the Med, or seeing them smile as you dip their toes in the pool.

Our baby-friendly holidays aims to make travelling with tots as relaxing as possible. The hotels have been handpicked to ensure they make the grade, and each goes above and beyond when it comes to welcoming families with babies.

You can browse our full selection of baby-friendly holidays below. They cover a range of destinations, from close-to-home spots like Spain and Portugal (great if you’d prefer a shorter flight time), to the far-flung shores of Mauritius (perfect for a bit of winter sun). 

  • Our baby-friendly hotels are personally visited by members of the team
  • Practical advice and personal recommendations from our Family Trusted Advisers
  • We can help you with extras like cots, buggies, baby baths and nappies - just ask

Handpicked hotels and helpful extras

For hotels to make it into our baby-friendly collection, we look for things like top-class crèches and nursery facilities, babysitting services, baby purees and bottle warmers in restaurants, and rooms designed to give new parents peace of mind. There’s no compromising on luxury either; you can still expect the high standards of any Sovereign hotel.

We also offer the option of pre-booking all those bits and bobs that babies need, giving you precious extra space in your case. Bottle sterilisers, buggies, baby baths, even wipes and nappies are available - give one of our Family Trusted Advisers a call to find out more about what's on offer at your chosen hotel.

Always ask us about equipment for hire at your hotel – things like baby baths, nappies and bottle sterilisers. It saves having to carry everything but the kitchen sink with you!

Expert advice

For some first-hand recommendations, have a chat with one of our Family Trusted Advisers. Most of them are parents who've holidayed with babies themselves, so they have plenty of helpful advice if you’re unsure about what to expect. They can give you information about room layouts, share their packing tips, even pre-book hotel crèches or babysitting for you. They’re on hand for you from the moment you first call until after you return home, so you can get in touch with any questions or queries you might have about the holiday.
