Trying to keep teens happy while bonding on a family vacation can definitely suck the fun out of your own experience. Ultimately, your getaway should be stress-free, & that starts with picking the right resort that has enough teen-friendly amenities & activities. The Four Seasons Bora Bora is an ideal spot, as there is plenty for your adolescents to see & do, both with & without you. From teen-focused spa services to a dedicated hangout center, your kids are bound to keep busy the entire trip, meaning you have some time to relax.
Eats for everyone There are several on-site restaurants at the Four Seasons Bora Bora, but your teenagers' tastes will definitely be satisfied at Sunset, which has both indoor lounge seating in a laid-back environment as well as terrace seating with a spectacular view of the water. Between tasty small bites & innovative Asian-inspired main dishes, there is definitely something for everyone. Entrees like the chicken shitake & jasmine rice or the Thai beef salad will get your teens' mouths watering. Or, if they have a more adventurous palate, they might consider one of the special sushi rolls, like the shrimp Tandoori tempura with spicy mango sauce. If you all save room, the whole family can share some apple spring rolls with caramel sauce or a warm chocolate & ginger fondant.
Essential luxuries It goes without saying that you'll want to indulge in a little pampering on your trip, but what will your teens do? Fortunately, the Four Seasons Bora Bora has a specific spa menu just for young adults. While surrounded by tropical scenery near the edge of the lagoon, your adolescents can enjoy a view of the sparkling ocean while getting an exfoliating Kahaia Coco Scrub, followed by the lavish Kahaia Crème Soufflé treatment. Of course, a manicure with one of the hottest island-inspired colors is a fun option. Or, teens that struggle with acne might prefer a facial, which can plunge into the skin to de-clog pores. After a customized mask is applied to even out the skin tone, your teen will get a lesson in skincare so they can keep their complexion looking clear.
Endless fun The Young Adults Center on Chill Island offers guests between the ages of 13 & 17 their own private stretch of sand, as well as a lounge, library, Internet café & indoor game room. Whether they want to shoot some pool, watch TV, play a round of foosball, badminton or beach volleyball, it's all possible at this teen-friendly paradise. A continually changing weekly activity schedule might include windsurfing races, introductory dive lessons, interactive cooking classes with the resort's chef & even underwater treasure hunts. By night, your teenagers can attend private parties, barbecues & movie nights.
