5 Reasons Why the Maldives is the Best Place for a Family Holiday

After the series of lockdowns and stay at home measures we’ve all had, it’s no secret that we all have a strong hankering for a holiday and there is truly no better location for a family holiday than the Maldives.

Here are 5 reason why the Maldives is the perfect destination for your family holiday.

Babysitting Services

Babysitting Services

If you’re travelling with very young kids, this can sometimes limit the activities you are able to do. While kids’ clubs are always a great option, most clubs have an age limit, generally between 4- and 12-year olds and they aren’t open 24 hours a day. This is why the majority of resorts in the Maldives, offer their guests babysitting services on demand. Therefore, you and your partner can enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner or a sunset cruise without having to worry about your little one. However, please keep in mind that babysitting services come at an extra cost, and you will have to inform the hotel at least a day in advance if you want a babysitter.

Kids Eat & Stay Free

Kids Eat & Stay Free

Yes, you read that right! Several resorts in the Maldives like Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives have great deals for family travel where little ones can dine and stay free or at least at a lower cost! Kids below the age of 12 can enjoy a complimentary breakfast, lunch, and dinner whenever they dine at a restaurant with their parents. Any parent knows that is an amazing deal, especially when you’re travelling with a fussy eater.

When you think of the Maldives, the first thing that comes to mind are overwater villas. This should not be a surprise as these bungalows are a hallmark of the country. However, overwater villas feel impractical on a family holiday as there usually isn’t enough space for you and your kids. Despite this, some hotels like Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives actually have two-bedroom water villas which are made for family holidays! You and your kids can have your own rooms and relax together on the large sun deck and overwater hammock during the day!
While overwater villas are always in the limelight, beach villas have an understated luxury to them. Beach villas are perhaps slightly better if you have young kids and worry about them wandering too close to the edge of the overwater villa. Found amongst tropical gardens, these villas tend to feel like treehouses—and who doesn’t love that?

Child-Friendly Water Sports

The Maldives is a hub for water sports. When you manage to pull your children away from the kids’ club, you must all partake in some fun and exciting water sports. Beneath the shimmering azure waters surrounding the islands are where the country’s real beauty lies; coral gardens flourish here and these vibrant corals attract a whole host of marine life that you can spot when you snorkel or dive here. If your kids are too small for snorkelling, then you can always take them on a kayak around the island near the shallows. Also, don’t worry, for the older kids, there are plenty of adrenaline-packed water sports like jet skiing and windsurfing!

Cool Kids' Clubs

Cool Kids' Clubs

One of the most important parts of a great family holiday is ensuring that the kids are well looked after while the adults get to indulge in some rest and relaxation. Almost all resorts in the Maldives have some form of kids’ club and some even have two, one for younger kids and a lounge for the older teens. Of course, you want to spend time with your kids during your family holiday, but once you arrive in the Maldives you will also want to treat yourself, whether it be a spa treatment or a yoga class, and this is when kids’ clubs come in handy. These clubs make sure your kids are kept entertained while you relax, the only struggle will be convincing them to leave the club with their new friends and games!

You are long overdue for a family holiday, and there is no better location than the Maldives as it is a place which is just as amazing for kids as it is for adults.
