Family holidays with children in Maldives - attractions and entertainment

Maldives The Maldives seems to be an ideal place to stay with children thanks to the excellent weather conditions all year round. The sandy beaches are wide and the entrance to the sea is smooth, which is convenient for families with children. Many large five-and four-star hotels have a children's club where you can leave a child over 4 years old with animators or a nanny. This service is usually included in the price. Babysitting services at an additional cost are available for younger children.
The luxury hotels in Maldives, deserving attention of the most discerning traveler.

The Maldives is popular with romantic couples and older people who do not crave active entertainment. But the Maldives is not very popular with families with children. Choosing the right hotel is the key to the success of a family holiday. Otherwise, there is a risk of ruining your vacation by listening to children whining about how bored they are. You need to be very careful when choosing a hotel. There are many adult-only hotels on the Islands. There is absolutely nothing of children's entertainment there. Children from 4 to 12 years old are accepted to children's clubs. You will have to entertain teenagers on your own. Per Aquum Niyama resort offers to entertain children in the explorers club. They have their own small water park, playground, trampolines, and kitchen. Master-classes and even snorkeling safaris are held there.
The best hotels for families with children are: Soneva Fushi (Kunfunadhoo, Baa Atoll), Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa Maldives (South Ari Atoll), Dusit Thani (Baa Atoll), Kanuhura (Lhaviyani Atoll), Kurumba (North Male), Kihaa (Baa Atoll), Gili Lankanfushi (North Male), Bandos (North Male), Lily Beach Resort & Spa (South Ari Atoll), Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa (North Male), and Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa (South Ari Atoll). There are children's rooms, playgrounds, slides and pools, a children's club, and animation in such hotels. Some of them offer master classes in drawing and pottery. Children can also watch the wildlife that can be found on the Islands. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Constance Halaveli Kids Club frees parents from taking care of their children for the whole day. The children are busy from 9 am to 9 pm there. Together with animators, they hunt for treasures, watch crab races, dance at mini-disco, and participate in master-classes. In addition, there is a children's menu here.
Of course, children do not like restaurants too much. They often behave noisily. But underwater restaurants have a chance to please them. Restaurants are located underwater and surrounded by panoramic glass walls and ceilings. Therefore, children can watch fish and other representatives of marine life while their parents take food. There are several such restaurants in the Maldives: Ithaa Undersea Restaurant (Rangali Island), Subsix (Niyama Island), Sea (Kihavah Huravalhi Island), 5.8 Undersea Restaurant (Hurawalhi Island Resort), Minus Six Meters (Maadhoo Island).
The Republic of Maldives is located on more than 1000 Islands. There are tiny coral islands among them. Officially, the Maldives is considered the …

The peculiarity of holidays in the Maldives is that the hotels are located on separate islands. Therefore, they are equipped with various slides, mini-water parks, and other entertainment for children, as a rule. There is only one real Water Park in the Maldives. This is Hideaway Beach & Spa Resort. This is a floating Water Park located in the lagoon. Both children and adults like it. In addition, Hideaway Beach Resort is one of the best islands located remotely in the northern part of Haa Alif Atoll. The island is very popular due to the presence of villas that provide privacy.
A large land water park would require a huge amount of space on one of the tiny sections of land. There are very few available land plots in the Maldives. In addition, there is a problem with transport. It is very difficult to get to the remote islands. If you are going to a resort with children, you should understand that you will have to spend most of your time on the same island.
These spots really worth the attention of a real traveler-researcher. …

A hotel with a “house” reef would be a reasonable choice for families with children. In such places, the child can go snorkeling, observe the underwater life, and explore the rich marine fauna off the coast.
Water cruises are one of the main activities with children in the Maldives. For example, this is a cruise with dolphins. 4 species of dolphins live in coastal waters. There are so many of them that meeting them during the cruise is guaranteed. Moreover, you can meet not 2-3 specimens but a flock of hundreds of individuals. It's much harder to meet a white shark or a blue whale, for example. There are also glass-bottom boat trips. You can watch the fish and feed them during these trips.
This chain of atolls has become an internationally famous resort destination. The Maldives may not be the best place for travelers who want active …

If you travel with a baby who needs diapers, canned food or infant formula, you need to keep in mind that it is impossible to buy all of this on remote islands. You will either have to make a stock and bring everything with you or go shopping in Male. Food is peculiar in the Maldives. Therefore, it is better to choose a hotel with a children’s menu if you have a capricious and fastidious child.
