According to Family Travel Forum's 2009 reports, there is a rising trend of forward-thinking hotels catering to the needs of young travellers. More and more family hotels and resorts are investing in kid-friendly amenities, such as children's programs, cartoon-themed suites, kid's menus and even child spas. A hotel's ability to reach out to a younger audience keeps youngsters entertained and removes the burden from strained parents.
