News release placeholder

Holiday Inn Resorts® has today announced that little travellers aged four through to 12 years old can try their hand ‘working’ in key aspects of a hotel or resort through its Little Big Hotelier programme, a unique edutainment experience bringing learning through role-play to life, on offer across each of its resort properties across South East Asia (see below for full list of locations).

To help these children gain real-world experience, Little Big Hotelier offers kids the opportunity to see the inner workings of their resort property as they take up roles in key departments, learning new skills while they have fun with other children, all under the guidance of the Holiday Inn Hotelier crew and their supportive parents.

Shantha de Silva, Head of Resorts and Thailand and Indonesia at IHG® (InterContinental Hotels Group) said, “The Holiday Inn Little Big Hotelier 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.”
