Atmosphere Resort – for a family friendly holiday
Atmosphere is a family friendly resort and welcomes both big and small. With two separate pool areas, of which one comprises of three shallower pools, and a Kids’ Club, we hope that families will feel right at home at Atmosphere Resorts & Spa.
In addition to regular babysitting services for the children of Atmosphere guests, we have Kids’ Cove on Atmosphere’s premises with access to both educational materials and toys and an on weekends an outdoor playground. We also have arts and crafts activities and movies – see more below. For the older kids we offer PADI Bubble Maker Dive Courses, the PADI Seal Team program as well as snorkeling programs. We also cater to families in the spa with Kid’s yoga and a Kid’s Spa Menu.
Arts and crafts
Kids’ Cove is a treasure of fun to be discovered by children between the ages of 2 and 8. Kids’ Cove is open for guests’ children, who can avail of the daily Kids’ Cove schedule with arts & crafts activities ranging from t-shirt design to pet rock making and movie nights on our bean bags. We have lots of fun or educational toys and we offer marine biology classes for children with our resident marine biologist. We have a large playground on the premises and a sports pit, which belong to our on-site school but are accessible whole day Saturday and Sundays and after 4.30 pm on weekdays. It is also open for guest’s children all day long during school holidays (contact us for dates).
Babysitting at Atmosphere
The kind people of the Philippines are notoriously good with children of all ages. We can provide regular babysitting – “yaya care” while you dive or have a night out at the Atmosphere bar. The yaya will take care of your child/children within the resort area, whether it is in the comfort of your room/apartment or by the pool or beach, it’s up to you. The yaya can also accompany you on your dive boat if you wish to bring your children, but this service is weather dependent and subject to availability.
No family friendly resort is complete without joint family activities. If you wish to make scuba diving a family event, we offer specific PADI Programs as a great introduction to the underwater world for children starting at 8 years old. PADI Bubble Maker is a great half day course to learn basic techniques and help children become comfortable breathing underwater. Even at the young age of 8, they get to dive in the ocean! The Seal Team program is a 2 day course; learning the basic principles of diving and subsequently getting the chance to take part in specialty Aqua Missions! 10-year olds and older can join in with the adults starting from Discover Scuba Diving or PADI Open Water full certification courses. There is no better place to learn to dive than the Philippines.
Our Family Pools
In early 2015 Atmosphere Resorts had the chance to develop the family pool area, perfectly situated next to the Atmosphere Bakery. These fun pools comprise of three shallower, cascading infinity pools, giving youngsters and adults alike their very own adventure area to frolic and play in the water to their hearts content!
Kids’ Spa and Yoga
The Sanctuary Spa here at Atmosphere is child and adolescent friendly. We actively encourage children to recognize the importance of looking after themselves and working on the art of proper therapeutic relaxation. Yoga is offered as an additional activity for young ones and due to popular demand, you will find treatments such as the Mini Massage, Fruity Facial, Scrummy Scrub and Twinkle Toes on a specifically designed Spa Menu for all between ages 8 and 15.
Kids Menu at Atmosphere
We provide child-friendly food options such as child sized pizzas, fish fingers, homemade burgers and a variety of pasta options, all of which come on a drawing-friendly childrens menu with fun activities. Every menu is printed on recycled paper and it even comes with crayons! Most food items on the regular menus can also be had as child portions.
