We like that our leisure environments & playgrounds not only to be enjoyed by children, but also to have that artistic element, so that both children and parents, adults can enjoy, that remain in the memory of the vacationer. It will also strengthen it’s position of the hospitality brand. This way, higher return levels will be achieved.

A little over 10 years ago I (Koen Crommentuijn) started to make a cupboard from biobased materials. I felt I really had to make this cabinet for a nursery, because of my feelings about toxic outflow of, among other things, Formaldehyde from plywood & sheet material. I thought that children were our future, so I wanted a product with minimal emissions. I was looking for a biobased sheet material and then came across Ecoboard – a sheet made of straw, an alternative to MDF and finished with Auro, then one of the few eco paints on the market from Germany. I thought the result was great. Well, I had it made after all, It was a super finished, completely Biobased cupboard, with no screws and all parts glued togetherwith bioresin glue …. however I’m no salesman or producer, but just a creative mind ….so the idea stayed in the cupboard.
Fast forward over 10 years later to Studio STRRR, the design company I set up with my fellow creative mind Carl Mills. We are now firmly entrenched in the leisure sector developing family concepts for hotels and will soon enter the school sector…that Biobased Circular spark started glowing inside me again and we now intend to market Biobased Circular children’s furniture & play objects.
However, unlike 10 years ago, we now have the know how, suppliers, customers and a network which really believes in our mission. So yes my dream of going biobased will become reality soon. Idea and concept development is in full swing…We will keep you all posted!

We know now that more people live in cities than in rural areas. A lot of children don’t grow up with natural surroundings or at least within a green environment, they grow up among bricks. It’s up to us to do something about it. We have to educate people on a sublte way. So that a connection with nature will increase the population of happy and healthy children and therefor to have happy and healthy grown ups later on.
The Nature Kids Club is a fun place where kids and their families can spend time enjoying nature and learning new ways to live in harmony with our Earth! Kids can hang out here and really connect with their natural surroundings.
Link indoor with outdoor
To create this affinity with nature we will always link the interior of a Kids club to an outdoor environment or playground. We design Kids Clubs with an eco, nature and biophilic approach. That means we will implement real nature in the interior & play environment of a hotel Kids Club and use natural materials or materials with eco & safe certificate. All products are sourced from their eco certificate such as Cradle to Cradle or other Eco certificates.
Everything that we design will feature nature friendly and eco elements. From the interior and exterior play units, to workshop products and design products for interior design. It has been scientifically proven that humans need nature or a natural environment to be more happy and healthy, as this frees a lot endorphins which create happiness. As we also believe in our responsibility to help create physically healthier children, we also add a playful and fun sports and exercise element to our kids club and link this to exciting Outdoor Leisure concepts.
Outdoor Leisure Concepts
Tree-athlon – a nature leisure concept
Tree-athlon – a fun and exciting outdoor game that connects children and parents directly to nature.
It’s a great way for the whole family to enjoy an activate and educational day outdoors. To experience nature, using all their senses. To see, smell, taste, hear and really feel the beauty of their environment. Tree-athlon is a fun tour of the environment, with a guide and a fun game element. Guests can learn about the Eco-Hotel’s environment and complete simple missions. Kids and parents follow a route in nature where they have to use all their senses to find out the right answers. Using all your senses really frees a lot of endorphins which create an intense feeling of happiness.
It also combines exercise, education and entertainment, which all parents will think is a perfect combination. The objectives are to entertain, enlighten and create amazing experiences and unforgettable holiday memories. Guests can choose from different routes – locations and also between walking, a guided Nature Parkour (with tree climbing – branch hanging), mountain bike riding and even horseback riding.
There can also be a version for the sea environment where local fisherman take out families on the water and guests can learn about the sea life. They can even catch their own dinner and learn to cook it local style back at the resort. Tree-athlon would also create work for people living in the region, who would act as tour guides.
Our programs get kids outside exploring new activities, discovering lifelong skills and connecting with nature.

Reviews on St.Regis Vommuli Resort, Maldives, Starwood Hotels
“The staff at the kids club were also tremendous. They had great activities for the kids, mixing quiet time of arts and crafts with active time running around playing indoor soccer and going out on the playground. In terms of food we would recommend the Kids Pass for your children’s meal options, which at $30/day for lunch and dinner is a great way to avoid having to buy them a $50 entre they may not eat. We spent Christmas at the resort, and this again showed how they spared no expense. The kids club organized a Christmas tree lighting party with carols and snacks. Kids went around the island caroling. Christmas morning Santa arrived on a Jet Ski bearing personalized gifts for each of the children, while parents were treated to champagne.”
“Mummy, can I go to the Kid’s Club please?” That’s my 6 year old son’s favorite place to check out everyday at Stregis Maldives. He had lots of fun playing with the other kids he met there and also participating in the fun-filled and educational activities which were properly planned on a daily basis. He was very reluctant to leave the beautiful resort cause he said he will miss the kids club very much.- Thanks to Eeklin, Tripadvisor Contributor from Malaysia

A Kids Club Concept for Rocco Forte Hotels & Resorts
In this Kids Club we combine active play, fun learning, healthy eating and relaxation with a storytelling journey through everything that makes Sicily such an amazing tourist destination. Our Storyteller will be Verdu the hedgehog, the symbol of the kids club.
The Vedura family program
The Vedura family program has a lot of different themes on offer, such as History, Astronomy, language, gardening, food and cooking, arts and sports. We propose to infuse all these elements within the Kids Club Design.
We will do this with a strong local character to reflect all the ingredients that make Sicily so alluring to families. We want to infuse the passion, fun, love of food, great sense of history, beautiful nature and rich past and achievements of Sicily within the Kids Club. We will also bring nature back into the interior, using natural greens and browns, peaceful sea blues and warm yellow and reds that reflect the passion and zest of Sicily.
This way a kids club can become a powerful tool to inspire, captivate and ensure that families will get an unforgettable holiday and remain happy and loyal customers to the Rocco Forte Hotel brand.
