The Royalton White Sands launched in 2013 after a $50 million gut renovation of the previous property. The result is a chic family-friendly resort with plenty to offer the kids in a modern environment hip enough to please the parents too.
The resort is a mash-up of modern meets Balinese inspiration. Blond wood and polished marble floors in the lobby are paired with a conical vaulted ceiling and teak wood tables topped with orchids. Sprinkled throughout the common areas are objets d’art that resemble ancient finds.
Rooms leave the past behind and are starkly modern with bleached wood floors, white walls and linens and a few splashes of color. Past guests have found the standard rooms to be a bit snug for a resort of this caliber.
Those whose budgets allow them to upgrade to the larger suites will be rewarded with extra space for either a pull-out couch, kid bunk beds or both. Pay even more for Diamond Club privileges, and get guaranteed reservations at one of the three specialty restaurants and separate seating at the pool and beach.
Stand-out features at this hotel are mostly for the kids. Popular preschool TV characters Mike the Knight and Max & Ruby are on site for meet and greets with the younger set, and there’s a large splash park with small slides and dump buckets. For bigger kids and kids at heart, there’s sky-high water slides that will make the adrenaline flow faster than the water. On dry land, smaller kids can climb around on the playground, while tweens and teens can play table and video games at the Kids Club.
Sports fanatics won’t miss a thing with the resort’s Sports Bar event guarantee to broadcast top U.S. and international games.
