A Family-friendly Place

Orama Oasis is not only family-friendly, we are a family of families ourselves!

Children of all ages are well catered for; we have portacots, high chairs, a well equipped preschool room with adjoining play area, and a kids playground. Aside from that, the whole property is an adventure playground for adults and children alike!

As a family with little ones or teenagers, you may be looking for an outdoor adventure or you may be needing time and space to get a much needed rest and reconnect with your children and each other.  Whatever your specific needs are, Orama Oasis can certainly help you to meet them.

We have a range of comfortable accommodation options to suit most budgets – from cabins to self-catering sea side apartments.  The chef in your family can even take a holiday by electing to have the Orama kitchen provide your meals (ask about the options available when you book).

Of course, you’ll need to supervise your children at all times – the environment can be so much fun you may lose track of the kids! You may also want to know that our staff are police-vetted and carefully selected for their suitability to our family-friendly, Christian community.
