Beautiful Locations for Family Holidays in the Maldives

For many years, the Maldives has widely been seen as the perfect location for honeymoons and romantic getaways which means that it is often avoided by families. However,more and more people are starting to realise the beauty that the islands have to offer. Thanks to year-round sunshine, warm water, and a number of activities to get involved with, families are starting to see the merits of a trip to the Maldives. 

 

With this in mind, they are starting to cater to a wider audience which means that it can be tricky deciding upon where to go. For this reason, we have developed a list of top destinations that ensures plenty of fun for both the adults and the children.As usual, you will need to keep some key factors in mind (especially with babies and toddlers). For example, you will want to book direct flights, find a resort near medical care, look for on-island doctor, kids club, and anythingelse that provides precaution. 

 

Kuda Huraa, NorthMale Atoll - With a Four Seasons resort nearby,Kuda Huraa is known to be one of the most active islands where numerous activities can be found. With everything from surfing to cooking lessons to be found, there is no way the family will get bored. At this particular resort,each child is made welcome and receives a treat upon arrival. From here, you will also find child-size bathrobes, children’s toiletries, and even children’s menus in the restaurant. If requested, you can even use a cot and benefit from an in-house doctor. 

 

Constance Halaveli,North Ari Atoll - Again, this resort has been kitted out for families as you can benefit from baby strollers, high chairs,nappy bins, on-island doctor, children’s menus, and even babysitters if you want to take a break for a couple of hours. Running all day, you will find the ‘Kuda Club’ for children which sees them partake in a number of games and activities such as sandcastle building, sending balloons up high, and watching the magnificent sunsets and stars.  

 

Furthermore, all children over 10 years of age can join a scuba diving course and there is even a special scuba diving team for children as young as five. Of course, they will stay on top of the water but will be provided with mini scuba diving gear so they can snorkel whilst safe in supervision.

When visiting this resort, your kids will be in paradise because there is so much to do and parents will be allowed to relax at the same time. As well as a whole host of equipment being made available for young babies and toddlers, the kids club will keep four to eleven year olds interested all day long.
