From check-in to check-out, Hilton Singapore Orchard fosters a sense of wonder and curiosity in young minds. Upon arrival, little ones are welcomed with a junior explorer drawstring bag containing an activity book, recycled color pencils, an origami set, and an upcycled plush toy — essentials to keep boredom at bay, and to mark the start of an adventure-filled stay ahead.  Together with the hotel’s dedicated Kids Ambassadors trained to offer friendly assistance to families, kids can design their own city adventure by choosing from the multitude of immersive activities on the Kids Service Menu, including itineraries for popular attractions such as Gardens by the Bay, Bird Paradise, Universal Studios Singapore, and more. At the end of their stay, junior guests can recount their tales of adventure and mail a customized postcard to whoever and wherever they want using the hotel’s complimentary mailing service at the concierge.  

At Hilton Colombo, young explorers can dive headfirst into an epic city scavenger hunt through the vibrant streets of Colombo. They’ll go on a quest aboard a thrilling double-decker bus to capture the beauty of the city’s hidden urban gems through the magic of photography. Those who want to stay in can opt for a fun “Hotelventure” exploration with a map to discover the many exciting locations and departmental operations around the property, complete with a certificate at the end of their expedition. 

Young adventurers who love the outdoors can embark on an educational and fun-filled journey through Sri Lanka’s Yala National Park as part of Hilton Yala Resort’s Junior Ranger Program.  Here, rangers-in-the-making can learn to identify animal tracks and birds, discover fascinating facts about animals, and earn a special badge to commemorate their experience. At Conrad Koh Samui, the Iris Farm Family Explorer Program lets little farmers try their hand at feeding goats and bunnies, and even help collect eggs and harvest fresh vegetables at the resort’s very own Iris Farm, which provides high-quality organic ingredients for the five-star resort.
