Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts introduces Rangers’ Club for Kids
This July, Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts will debut the Rangers’ Club, a new programme that aims to immerse children in an educational adventure which will enhance their overall development and communication skills, while learning important themes that align with the Group’s sustainability ethos to boost their love for the environment.
The Rangers’ Club is designed to encourage cognitive development and cultivate the spirit of outdoor exploration and adventure for kids between 4 to 11 years old, with a sustainability learning angle. Through multi-sensory activities using the five senses – sight, touch, taste, smell, sound – children will be able to actively engage their senses as they explore their surroundings and dive into activities that will allow them to learn about nature, while appreciating and caring for the environment.
Upon arrival at the resort, children will be presented with a Rangers’ Club Passport during check-in. They are encouraged to collect stamps for their passport and join in the activities at various checkpoints within the resort’s compound and allocated outdoor spaces. Every expedition will be facilitated by the Ranger’s Club staff, who will challenge the little explorers to be proactive and inquisitive of their surroundings. Once all five stamps are collected, they can redeem a prize rewarded by the resort.
Rangers’ Club mascot is Felly the Turtle, an actual green sea turtle born on 28 April 2004 at Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru in the Maldives. Felly was one of 30 eggs that survived out of a clutch of 150 eggs in a vicious thunderstorm. This little survivor has since become Banyan Tree’s globe-trotting mascot and a familiar face for the Banyan Tree sustainability and community initiatives.
Rangers’ Club replaces the Group’s existing Kids’ Club and will be rolled out and established across all Banyan Tree and Angsana resorts by January 2019.
The Live for Family package for Angsana properties is now available for bookings, allowing kids to stay, eat and play for free. The package includes:
- Daily Breakfast
- Kids below 12 dine for free
- Complimentary extra bed / roll-away, where available
- Complimentary baby-sitting services (up to a stipulated time), where available
- Return airport transfers (car or SUV/MPV)
