Camellias Tea Party

A true fairytale setting with its magical pink hue and crystal chandeliers, Afternoon Tea at Camellias in Hotel Bennett is a must. Our 12 and under guests are treated to a curated offering of kid-approved canapés while our adult guests are invited to indulge in the Crown Tea featuring a glass of sparkling pink bubbles.


Equestrian Experiences

Your stay at Salamander Resort & Spa would not be complete without a visit to our beautiful equestrian center featuring a 14,000 square-foot stable with 22 stalls, nine beautiful paddocks and a spectacular outdoor riding arena. Schedule a riding lesson or participate in one of our many programs like Paint-a-Pony where children learn about horse markings and breeds.

Plus, don’t miss the chance to meet the sweetest member of our team, Cupcake the miniature horse. When not in the equestrian center, she joins guests on The Grand Lawn every Friday and Saturday to enjoy pets and photo-ops with all her fans. Parents can also indulge the special Cupcake Cocktail from Gold Cup, topped with rainbow sprinkles, of course.

Family Tee Time

Start your day right with a championship golf experience you won’t forget. Innisbrook Resort is home to four award-winning courses, including the Copperhead course which welcomes the world’s finest players each March for the PGA TOUR’s Valspar Championship. Just learning to play? Ask about the year-round golf instruction programs for juniors, beginners or even the more advanced player. With opportunities for every skill level, your family is bound to make memories on the green.


Beaches and Watersports

With two miles of beachfront, it’s no surprise that Half Moon offers a variety of seaside activities for guests of all ages. Take a walk along the crescent-shaped gem known as Sunset Beach that inspired the name of the resort back in 1954, swim in the sea at Eclipse Beach, and motivate the family to wake up early for panoramic views on Sunrise Beach. Plus, when kayaks, pedal boats, paddleboards and snorkeling are all included in your stay, it can be hard to choose which activity to take part in! Make the most of the warm turquoise waters and take a sailing lesson on a Hobie catamaran or get an adrenaline rush with a water-skiing adventure.

Powder Day

Adventure on the Slopes

Winter adventures await the whole family at Aspen Meadows Resort. Experience the Rocky Mountain slopes at one of Aspen’s four renowned mountains, providing the perfect spot for both novice skiers and beginners to refine their skills and enjoy the powdery slopes.

Tennis Balls

Grab a Racquet

Share in family fun on our tennis courts and find the perfect tennis match for everyone at Aurora Anguilla. Sharpen your skills and challenge yourself through lessons with a Tennis Pro at our Tennis Clinic or reserve the courts for leisure play. Juniors can also advance their level through introductory tennis and pickleball lessons, focusing on those 5 and up.

Swimming Pool

Make a Splash

Splash into family time and recharge at Salamander DC. Our 50-foot indoor pool boasts floor to ceiling windows, overlooking the iconic Washington Marina. Heated to inviting temperatures, guests can float or play in the water or relax on lush loungers. It’s the ideal atmosphere for spending quality time together - no matter what the weather forecast is.
