RITZ KIDS®



From the moment of arrival, we welcome kids to The Ritz-Carlton by encouraging them to explore the sights and sounds of the hotel and its environment. Guided by playfulness and a sense of wonder, Ritz Kids delights and engages your children to interact with their surroundings in a fresh and exciting way, while introducing them to the four important pillars of Ritz Kids discovery: Water, Land, Environmental Responsibility and Culture.

Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ambassadors of the Environment program offers excursions for adults, families and children (five and older) led by expert naturalists. For a complete list and schedule of available activities, please explore our Ambassadors of the Environment program.
