A getaway with the entire family is an incredible opportunity to enjoy quality time together and make memories to last a lifetime. If you’re ready for a holiday that you’ll still be talking about in years to come, the WAHI team has you covered. From lazy days by the pool to action-packed fun, we’ve got everything you need for the trip of a lifetime to the Whitsundays.

Here are five reasons why you should choose WAHI for your next family holiday…


1. Everyone will be sure to have a splash-tastic time

Nothing says ‘tropical holiday’ like cooling off with a refreshing swim. Our lagoon-style pool is the perfect place to spend a morning with the family or set up for an entire day. Surrounded by landscaped gardens and overlooking the glistening blue ocean, it’s a tranquil place to recharge your batteries. 

But for the kids, it’s more of an outdoor wonderland! While you kick back on a sun lounge, your little ones can splash the day away. 
As a WAHI guest, you also have access to the island’s Bougainvillea Pool, Main Pool and Sails Pool, all only a few minutes walk from your apartment.



2. Getting around is a breeze

Every parent knows the trick to the perfect holiday is having enough activities and excitement to keep the kids entertained. Luckily for you, we've got no shortage of options on the island. Whether you're snorkelling with marine life, ducking out for ice creams or going head-to-head with some beach games, you won't even know where to start! 

To help you get around during your stay, your booking comes with complimentary and unlimited use of the scheduled island shuttle service. This bus runs regular routes around the island between 7:30 am and 11 pm, stopping at all the major attractions. It's the simplest way to tick off all the must-see locations without having to get your own set of wheels. 
Or if you would rather see the island at your own pace, why take one of the island's iconic golf buggies out for a spin! Buggies can accommodate families of up to four and can be also equipped with child restraints for the little ones. To find out more and reserve your buggy you can head here.


3. To take some well-deserved time out

Family holidays aren’t just about the kids! You’ve worked hard and earned this trip too, so it’s important to treat yourself. Our favourite way to hit pause and take some time out for yourself is to indulge in a massage or spa treatment at Spa Wumurdaylin. Only a stone’s throw from WAHI, the spa has a wide range of treatments available – including everything from massages and body wraps to facials. For more information or to make a booking head here


4. Let the kids clown about

While you’re enjoying a bit of time to yourself, why not leave your kids in the capable hands of the team at the Clownfish Club. The island’s holiday childcare centre caters to all ages, from 6 months to 12 years. These friendly and experienced professionals offer a massive range of activities, so you can rest assured your little ones are having the time of their lives too. Between teddy bear picnics and slime time, your biggest struggle will be trying to get them back home at the end of the day!

5. A picture is worth a thousand memories

The island is undoubtedly one of Australia's, if not the world's most picturesque destinations. So, make sure to pack a camera (or keep your phone handy) because you'll want to capture these moments forever! With clear water and blue skies, it’s the perfect backdrop for family happy snaps. Grab a shot of the family on the beach, exploring the reef or even just hanging by the pool, and you'll have momentos to look back on for years to come. 

If you've got your eye on a family holiday, WAHI is the perfect place to take your little ones. Take some time out with your loved ones, and let the WAHI team give you all the tips and tricks to make the most of your time away. Book your next family vacay with WAHI here.
