Marriott has launched a promotion that offers
children aged 12 or under free accommodation and other benefits
when staying with parents at all Courtyard by Marriott hotels in
Launching on 1 August 2009, the Kids Rock programme
is only available to 12 year’s old and under
when staying with their parents or guardians.
for the scheme must be made through Courtyard by
Marriott's online booking engines or directly through other
Marriott booking centres.
When kids arrive at the
participating hotels – Courtyard By Marriott at Kamala Beach,
Surin Beach and Patong Beach on Phuket and the group’s property at
Cha Am Beach Hua Hin – they will be guided to their own check-in
area where they will also be presented with a welcome gift.
All hotels boast an exclusive Kids World zone with the latest
in playground equipment and computer games for children during
their stay. All Kids World facilities are managed and staffed by
qualified personnel under strict security conditions so
parents can feel at ease.
Kids also use the dedicated
check-out zone when they depart and will be asked to rate
their experience by hotel staff. There will be no account to
settle of course when they leave, as all kids’ accommodation is
free as are meals consumed with parents at any time of the day at
Courtyard’s signature MoMo Cafés.
In addition, kids will
become members of the Kids World VIP Club, offering additional
benefits to parents and kids during their stay.
by Marriott Director of Marketing, Andreas Kohn, said the Kids
Rock campaign was designed to cater to kids’ needs while allowing
parents their own time to relax while on holiday through the Kids
World "playground concept".
"We have launched a full range
of new products and services for kids, which we are sure will be
well received. However, it is also important to remember that the
Kids Rock campaign is designed to make the stay for parents
enjoyable too by catering to the entire family’s needs," Mr Kohn
"This is not a step we have taken lightly but it is
one we are sure will fill a niche in a competitive hotel market in
the current global climate."
Another bonus under the Kids Rock concept is
that they can also use all Kids World and pool facilities at any
of the three Phuket hotels. Courtyard is providing free shuttle
busses for families to move between the hotels and experience them
