The Desert Springs Kids Club has devised a number of fun activities to keep children of all ages actively occupied at the resort’s well-designed Crocodile Club, leaving grown-ups some peaceful time to themselves. This service allows you to escape with the peace of mind that your children are in safe and capable hands of the professionally trained team.
Sessions typically include activities such as the Trim Trail, Gator Tractor, 5-A side Football, Paddle Tennis, Junior Golf Clinic, Tennis, Basketball, Table Tennis, Beach Volleyball, Drawing, and always finish up in the pool with supervised pool games!
There’s an excellent sandy playground complete with slide, wobbly bridge and scrambling net, while the older ones can enjoy everything from football, volleyball and giant chess to table tennis, air hockey and pool.
The family orientated main pool is also found here, an ideal place for children to make new friends.
Enjoy some well-deserved time out away from the kids and treat yourself to one of the wide range of individual treatments available at the resort’s delightful private Day Spa. From facials and manicures to massages and wraps, the experienced resident therapist provides a truly personal experience using Neal’s Yard Organic skincare products to pamper, soothe and de-stress.
Treatments should be booked in advance, so the therapist may prescribe and uniquely ensure that treatments are tailor made to suit your needs in an un-hurried and relaxed atmosphere.
The Day Spa may be entirely booked out as a whole for groups of friends or families, for hen parties, baby showers, anniversaries, and boasts a beautiful private garden area with terrace and fountain where guests may relax outdoors. Inside there is also a private gym and lounge area.
The main pool at Desert Springs can be found at the Crocodile Club, although there are also several other pools throughout the resort on each community (however these are generally only for residents of that community). The villa you are staying in will determine which community pool you will have access to.
The large shaped main pool, chilling out pool and Jacuzzi are set within natural rock, cascades and planting and are cooled by an occasional fine mist. The main pool features underwater music and has a contra current to swim against. The fresh “desert springs” water, treated by a saline purification system, is free of eye stinging chlorine and is a delight for young and old. The pools are surrounded by cool grass sun bathing lawns, where families and friends can enjoy relaxed semi-private days at leisure, looked after by the friendly pool bar team.
