Ritz Kids ~ The Newest Concept From Ritz-Carlton & Jean-Michel Cousteau
I love Ritz-Carlton. We took our kids to the Ritz-Carlton Toronto a couple of years ago and my husband and I were both amazed at how well they work with children. From the personalized check-in counter to the spa services, this is one luxury hotel chain that really caters to the next generation of travelers! Now, to add to their excellent service, the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company has released details on their new Ritz Kids children’s programming through an expanded partnership with Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ocean Futures Society.
Available at 84 hotels around the world, this new program will engage and immerse children in educational experiences that build upon the adventures of travel. Designed for young guests ages four to 12, this program engages children to explore the world around them.
“The fun and exciting activities appeal to a child’s innate love of discovery and sense of curiosity. All kids start out as scientists, constantly asking ‘Why? What’s that? How does it work?’ I have spent my life exploring the natural wonders of the world, seeking to understand how our planet works and how we can better protect it,” said Jean-Michel Cousteau.
The content of the Ritz Kids programming was created by Ocean Futures Society exclusively for The Ritz-Carlton. The environmental expertise of Ocean Futures Society allows The Ritz-Carlton to craft fascinating experiences that are based on four key pillars:
- Water: Emphasizing the importance of sea life and health.
- Land: Encouraging exploration and discovery.
- Environmental Responsibility: Promoting the environmental health of our planet for the future.
- Culture: Exposing young minds to a variety of art forms, including music, local customs and history, as well as cuisine.
Depending on where the child is visiting, they will be able to choose from an array of environmentally focused experiences that foster interaction with the world in which they live. The content created by naturalists is as diverse as the natural world around us and is tailored specifically to intrigue and thrill bright young minds. Every family-friendly Ritz-Carlton hotel around the world incorporates Ritz Kids touch points for children throughout their stay. Specifically, Ritz-Carlton resorts offer an array of exciting adventures, each rooted in one of the key pillars, designed to engage dialogue, spark curiosity and draw wonder from each hotel’s dynamic culture and locale. Examples include searching for indigenous birds in the wild, exploring gardens for Food Fun, playing games to learn about various types of fish, exploring how fish are different from people and learning about local cultures, myths and legends.
