Fancy something different this year? It’s hard to beat the formula of sun + sand + pool for children on holiday, but how about something to spice it up? Here are our top 5 recommendations for a holiday with stand-out memories, all at luxurious, family-friendly places to stay…

1) Go Barbie-tastic in Sardinia

Why stay in an ordinary hotel room when you can stay in a Barbie-themed one? Little Barbie fans will go sparkly-eyed for this glamorous experience. After a day spent creatively at the Barbie fashion academy, there’s a parent-&-child spa treatment and manicure, with gifts to take home. See more at Forte Village resort >

2) Watch whales up close in the Canaries

There’s year-round sunshine in Tenerife, and year-round whale watching too. Take a boat trip out to get up close to these awe-inspiring giant creatures of the deep, and some incredible photo opportunities. See more at Abama resort >

3) Camp out in the desert in Dubai

Experience the Bedouin lifestyle with an overnight stay under the stars, deep in the Arabian desert. Young adventurers can sand-board, explore the dunes in a jeep or go on a sunset safari camel-ride. Drumming sessions, a falcon show and belly dancing all add to an incredible camp-out. See more at Bedouin Oasis.

4) Score for Arsenal in Crete

Goal! Learn to play the Arsenal way at this exclusive academy for 5-16 year olds. Fans of all clubs are of course welcome and will benefit from top trainers offering excellent tuition, helping boys and girls to improve their core skills and importantly to have fun too. The best players will win a tour of the Emirate Stadium in London on their return. See more at Porto Elounda >

5) Explore the wild jungle in Sri Lanka

Channel your inner Mowgli with a wild trip off the beaten track in Sri Lanka. With jungle treasure hunts, story-walks by ancient forts and the phenomenal elephant gathering, your children can learn to be wildlife guides, interpreting the natural signs around them. See more at Jungle Rangers >
