Meaningful luxury vacation with hands up holidays

Ultimate Luxury Family Vacations

Yes, Hands Up Holidays specializes in luxury travel (especially eco-luxury travel), but in some locations, it is still possible to go “next level” in lodges that will blow your mind in terms of style, setting, or sheer chutzpah. 

Those countries leading the pack for the ultimate luxury accommodations are, in our opinion Costa Rica, PeruThailand, Cambodia, Kenya, Rwanda, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. 

The lodges below can be your base to stay at during your give-back experience, and we will create a bespoke itinerary for you that blends this with other outstanding ultimate luxury properties throughout your chosen destination.

Best Trips with Young Kids

If your kids are aged 5-10, we recommend Costa Rica and Thailand, where there are fantastic kids clubs, and you can all get involved in helping at a wildlife conservation project, and learn an enormous amount about the animals, such as elephants and monkeys.

Best Trips with Tweens

For kids aged 10-12, we still recommend Costa Rica and Thailand, plus India and Sri Lanka for wildlife conservation, as well as building eco-friendly stoves in Belize, Peru and India. These stoves can be completed in just a few days, and are fantastic for family bonding.

Best Trips with Teens

Animal loving teens can still help on a wildlife conservation project, perhaps turtle conservation in Costa Rica, Greece, and Turkey. Families with teens can also get immersed in the local culture and make a lasting difference on a building project, such as houses in Guatemala, Zambia and Cambodia.
