The An­daman

The lux­u­ri­ous re­sort with its award-win­ning spa ap­peals to par­ents while kids will only have eyes for the Young Ex­plor­ers Club and coral nurs­ery. At the club, Wee-IPs have a slew of ac­tiv­i­ties to try such as beach bowl­ing and her­mit crab hunts. Down at the nurs­ery, kids can be Young Marine Bi­ol­o­gists for a day with the coral cu­ra­tor or sim­ply en­joy a guided snorkel and spot the res­i­dent lob­sters, clown fishes and Moor­ish idols. Kids and par­ents alike can head up to the new Marine Life Lab­o­ra­tory near the lobby to learn more about coral con­ser­va­tion and the ho­tel’s in­spir­ing ini­tia­tives to save its dam­aged reef. Over here, talks, work­shops and other events will get guests in­volved in sav­ing this pre­cious re­source. If the ocean fails to tempt your child, the sur­round­ing rain­forests of­fer plenty of bird watch­ing and jun­gle trekking ex­pe­ri­ences. The soft fluffy white sand of the beach will be the strong­est lure for kids here. Frangi­pani has two swimming pools in ad­di­tion to a kid­die pool, while ac­tiv­i­ties such as wa­ter sports, beach vol­ley­ball and snorkelling will in­ter­est the teens. Tout­ing it­self as a green ho­tel, Frangi­pani is slightly worn around the edges but a va­ca­tion on Langkawi will be spent out­doors any­way.
