Holiday Inn Resorts is inviting little travellers to try their hands “working” in its hotels through the Little Big Hotelier programme.
Four to 12 year-olds are taken through an edutainment experience that brings learning to life through role play in different properties in Asia.
Participants take up make-believe roles in key departments and learn new skills, all under the guidance of the Holiday Inn Hotelier crew and their parents.
Shantha de Silva, head of resorts and Thailand and Indonesia at InterContinental Hotels Group, said: “The programme helps empower children to embrace the world as their classroom. From restaurants to housekeeping, recreation to engineering. A resort is the perfect environment for children to gain invaluable skills, be it effective communication, interaction with others, basic culinary and recreation skills.”
“Children of various nationalities and ages can come together to spend their day with our crew and have a whale of a time learning not only the operational aspects of running a hotel but also learning from each other and the multiple resort personalities that they can encounter during their stay.”
To take part in the programme, kids register at the resort’s Holiday Inn Kids Club, choosing the time and role they’d like to experience across a variety of jobs.
The participating hotels are: Holiday Inn Resort Bali Benoa, Holiday Inn Resort Baruna Bali, Holiday Inn Resort Batam, Holiday Inn Resort Penang,
Holiday Inn Resort Krabi Ao Nang Beach, Holiday Inn Resort Phi Phi, Holiday Inn Resort Phuket, Holiday Inn Resort Phuket Mai Khao Beach, Holiday Inn Resort Vana Nava Hua Hin and Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives.
