Reasons to plan a family trip to the Maldives now – For an amazing family holiday

Want to spend some quality time on a vacation getaway, look no further than the Maldives. Here are a few reasons to consider it as your next travel destination with the family.


Near normalcy amidst the pandemic

The Maldives is trying to present itself as a tourist destination that offers a "normal" vacation. The isolation of most hotels and resorts means less exposure than other travel destinations as the majority of visitors rarely venture outside of their resort.

Tourists travelling from the airport and to the resort are exempt from quarantine procedures. Splitting the stay among two separate resorts is also allowed if the resort has adhered to meeting the government regulations.


Glass bottom boat rides

A boat ride in the Maldives is unlike anywhere else in the world. The beauty of the calm and endless seas is astounding. Children will love this amazing experience. If kids want to see what's happening in the ocean take them on a relaxing boat ride! These boats are equipped with comfortable seating, and the clear glass panel beneath the boat will emanate a colourful marine at your feet. Some packages end the excursion with a cooked lunch on the beach itself. It might be the ideal adventure for children who can't swim as yet, but want to experience sea life up close. Boat rides can be arranged by your accommodation of choice.


Activities for kids

Most islands will have activities not restricted to indoor kids' clubs. They combine group snorkelling, scavenger hunts, beach Olympics, hermit crab races, sunset activities such as bonfires with roasted marshmallows, pyjama parties, and movie nights
If you want to start letting your kids learn to dive, select an island that allows the PADI Bubblemaker preparatory course for diving. For older kids, some resorts have rock climbing, painting studios, gaming centres, and teens clubs to keep them busy.


The resorts

The types of accommodation available can be overwhelming and one of a kind anywhere in the world. The types range from a villa in Maldives to beach villas, water villas, bungalows and more. Children are sure to love the unique and gorgeous settings. The type you end up choosing will depend on the island you choose. Beach villas will be directly facing the beach, and water villas will be usually based on the lagoon part of the island. places like Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas are among the options to consider. Then there are the overwater and beach villas, which are super luxury villas built on the water itself. Water villas are a great option if you have kids who can snorkel, as the house reef will be accessible at all times. Water villas have a personal entrance to the lagoon of the islands through a small staircase. It may pose a security risk for younger children. The passageways on each side have a wooden walkway that opens up to the lagoon. Thus, small children will need supervision when entering the villas. Consequently, some resorts require a minimum age rule for water villas. So, check with your resort bookings about these matters. Some resorts are well-equipped with security criteria like fitting railing and security locks over the floors and villa.
