Families that want a true vacation escape - but not from each other - will find there’s more fun in doing adventures together this fall/winter season at Frenchman’s Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort.. From hard-to-please teens and tweens, to curious kindergartners, active parents and grandparents – there’s something for everyone with the new “Family Island Adventure” package.
An advantage for families at Frenchman’s Reef is the on-property Adventure Center. Conveniently located within the hotel, this activities’ hub is staffed with island experts who can consult, recommend and book your family’s vacation plans. With the Adventure Center’s array of water sport activities, the whole family can choose to learn stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) together; swim with turtles at nearby Buck Island; or embark on a night kayaking tour to see what lies on the ocean floor through “clear bottom” kayaks ringed with LED lights. New for this season, the Adventure Center is now offering a twist on stand-up paddle boarding: try it at NIGHT with special boards that are lit from underneath.
Thrill-seeking families craving more adventurous experiences, the Adventure Center has it covered. For an adrenaline-pumping activity that makes the dream of flying a reality, the island’s first water-propelled jetpack experience, known as jetpacking, provides all that and more. Jetpacking is the perfect combination of fun and physicality as it suspends guests in the air up to approximately 10 feet above water to give them the allure of defying gravity. From above water to under, the Shark Encounter at Coral World Marine Park is a spine-tingling, pulse-pounding attraction, allowing travelers to get up-close and personal with a dozen sharks without any cages or barriers.
The perfect balance of high-energy activities and fun-filled experiences complement the resort experience as families can then unwind from an action-packed day or two at one of Frenchman’s Reef & Morning Star’s four pools – including a new splash pool for little ones; dig toes in the sand at Morning Star Beach; relax at the Lazule Spa with the Signature Sugar Glow with Vichy treatment – perfect for post-adventure activity; or reminisce about the day’s adventure on a sunset sail. The “Family Island Adventure” package starts from $224 per night/per room and includes a $200 activity credit with the Adventure Center.
