An apartment's the answer

TAKING the whole family on holiday and staying in luxurious accommodation can be expensive and tricky.

If you add on all the extra expense of buying meals and visiting laundromats (busy children mean a lot of laundry) and then entertaining them it can often be out of reach.

A self-contained apartment is the answer. Having your own holiday kitchen and laundry facilities mean you can save big dollars.

And if the apartment is in a beautiful resort with oodles of facilities to keep the kids occupied, then everyone is a winner.

Grand Mercure Apartments Twin Waters has "home away from home" accommodation options which cater for the diverse lifestyle needs of today's modern families.

Featuring spacious two and three-bedroom, fully self-contained apartments and stunning three and four-bedroom beach houses, which sleep up to eight guests, the resort offers a smooth holiday option with loads of room to move.

Most of the executive beach houses have their own private pool or a grass courtyard, and all feature expansive decks with barbecues.

Each house has a minimum of two separate living areas and at least one of the areas combines with the dining area and sizeable kitchen to form a spacious open-plan area.

Combine this luxury living with the modern convenience of online supermarkets to deliver all your holiday essentials right to your door, the resort offers everything a family could wish for in an affordable holiday.

Facilities for the whole family include swimming pools and barbecue areas, bike and walking tracks, a day spa and access to a range of watersports and equipment including sailing, kayaks and a water trampoline at the adjacent Novotel resort.
