On the island, kids club offer a full range of activities—from creating recycled arts and crafts, Zumba dancing, colour ball hunting, and outdoor learning activities such as island gardening, water splash games, and learning about crabs and hermits.

Sheraton’s signature family program, Side by Side, is designed to provide well-rounded experiential activities for children, parents, grandparents, spouses and couples to participate in together during their leisure travel—from family spa days, curated island picnics on the beach, cooking classes and more!
While two freshwater pools, a tennis court, kids clubs, a 24-hour gym, and plenty of activities keep you active, the resort’s signature Shine Spa comes to the rescue when you need to relax.
