Child-Friendly Top 7
I have been to Maldives with my children many times. They are welcome at most resorts, but here are seven that stand out. Either for their service to kids, for their popularity with families, or for that something extra that creates the best holiday ever for your children – and consequently, for you.
Bandos provide a crèche and babysitting service, and rooms for whole families. One & Only Kanuhura also babysit, and provide an unrivalled kids’ club and swimming lessons. At One & Only Reethi Rah there are family villas. They look after children better than anyone, running clubs for all ages from 2 to 18. Meeru teach kids how to dive, and in addition to their babysitting service and extra beds in the rooms, Vilu Reef contains a little park.
On two islands that treat families well and are quiet in the evenings, kids love the pool at Filitheyo, and the company of many other children at Fihalhohi. These two, along with Vilu Reef, also have the essential natural commodity for youngsters: an abundance of shady space to play in safely between the trees.
Unspoilt beach, a vast lagoon to play in, wrecks and dolphins nearby, and superior kids’ club, service, dining and spa – there’s pleasure for all on this luxurious island.
Large, busy and joyful resort with excursions and activities for everyone. With a wonderful beach and great diving, Meeru makes many dreams come true affordably.
Family-friendly and close to Male, this active resort excels with Diving and Sports Centres and island-round snorkelling. Smart yet casual makes Bandos good value.
With mature garden, wide beach, great snorkelling, diving, lagoon and spa, popular Vilu Reef is crowded but still private. Mostly all-inclusive with something for all.
One & Only Reethi Rah
Constructed island exquisitely designed down to gorgeous detail in rooms, menus, gym and spa. They love children. Man-made luxury, with natural features yet to catch up.
The largest resort island and one of Asia's finest luxury hotel operators come together to create a rich fantasy of a tropical island life without leaving anything behind.
The best mid-range resort, scoring highly for natural soft beaches, lush vegetation, diving, snorkelling and dining. Great for families yet large enough to seem all alone.
