Toddlers, Teens and the Maldives

Travel is one of human nature most joyous experiences. It offers us a glimpse into another world and culture whilst stimulating all five of our senses.

But when it comes to a child or teen, traveling can be quite a task. You need to be on top of your regular game. You need to offer you little travellers something to keep them occupied (and relaxed) at all times.

Though favoured the world over as a honeymoon destination for its stunning tropical beauty, did you know that the Maldives also makes for the perfect family getaway? With over 150 resorts to choose from, selecting the right property is key, especially if you are holidaying with kids. Here are some pointers that will help you pick a child-friendly resort in the Maldives:

Seaplane or Speed boat?

If you’re traveling with an infant or have over multiple flights to reach the capital Malé, it’s best to pick a resort that is a speedboat ride from the airport. Speedboats are not particularly bumpy, but if you plan to visit during the Maldivian monsoons (June to October) check if the property has larger speedboats, which will be more comfortable.

Beach Villa or Water Villa?

If you travel with a bunch of teenagers, the water villas are the best way to win Parent of The Year. Its an Instagram friendly villa that will see them posting a five different sunset and sunrise boomerangs. But if you’ve got your hands full with an inquisitive toddler whose speed will have you questioning your physical health – its always safer on a beach villa. Why? Because firstly, taking a child to an overwater villa will have you signing a clause that you are solely responsible for any fatal injuries. But risk factors aside, the beach villa gives you privacy, luxury and a home away from home feel with the kids.

All-Inclusive or Full Board Meal Plans?

Contrary to popular belief, a full board meal does not mean anything and everything is included.

It just means you are eligible for your three main meals and anything addition, will need to be paid for. When travelling with kids, we recommend you find a resort that offers you the All-inclusive meal plan. Why? Because with kids you never know if they’d prefer a snack after pool time or perhaps a refreshing juice some time in the afternoon.

Is there enough for them to do?

This is a definite yes. When it comes to adventure, there’s a ton of action and soul stimulating activities for the whole family. Whether its spending their mornings at the Kids’ Clubs and Teen Lounges or their afternoons under water with the world’s most unique creatures — there is always something to do.

Your resorts should host a plethora of family friendly activities to keep you entertained. We recommend snorkeling at the reef or perhaps taking a fishing tutorial on the Maldivian dhoni.

Why Travel To The Maldives?

You’ve seen photos of the Maldives before: picture-perfect private villas suspended over striking blue waters, alabaster white sand beaches and spectacular sunsets dipping into the horizon. The scenic beauty of the Maldives is something to behold, something you can’t quite understand until you’re there in person.

The island nation of the Maldives is popular with honeymooners looking for seclusion and adventurers looking to explore the depths of the sea on a scuba diving and snorkeling excursion.

Travellers seeking relaxation can unwind at one of the island spas and all visitors should certainly spend a day exploring the Maldivian capital of Malé. The hotels in this region are also spectacular, ranging from underwater hotels to overwater bungalows to incredibly beautiful resorts.

However, getting to and staying in this tropical paradise requires patience (there are no direct flights from the United States) and plentiful cash. Located between the Arabian and Laccadive seas, roughly 500 miles southwest of Sri Lanka, the Maldives is about as isolated as you can get – and that’s just another one of its many allures.

Here are just a few of the main reasons why you need to make Maldives your next travel spot.

Romance done right

A visit to the Maldives is a dream come true. Each resort is a private enclave perched on an individual island, providing its occupants with exclusive tranquility. This is a great place to relax and spend quality time with your other half or family. Imagine waking up on the private island, surrounded by swaying palm trees, azure blue sea and pristine soft white sand every day. Maldives is where you create magical memories with your loved ones.

It’s the Luxe Life

If there were one luxury destination in Asia that comes to mind, it has to be Maldives. Over here, you will be treated like royalty. From the moment you arrive at the Male Airport, resort representatives will be there to escort you to your luxury speedboat or seaplane. This is where your fuss-free vacation begins. From the unparalleled top-notch personalized service to the romantic Dhoni cruises to dining on a private sandbank, you will enjoy unrivaled luxury and pampering.

Life on the Sea

Well known for its picturesque beaches with sparkling soft white sand, beautiful azure sea, and impossibly clear skies, the term “tropical paradise” for Maldives is almost an understatement. Basking on your sundeck while enjoying the heart-stopping views of the Indian Ocean is like a dream. Every single angle seems to be the perfect vantage point for taking picture-perfect insta-worthy photos.

Ultimate privacy

A trip to the Maldives is an ultimate vacation where you get to enjoy a combination of nature, luxury and privacy. Sandbank dining is definitely one of the most serene and romantic experiences in Maldives. Enjoy the sandbank in private with your special other half on the stark white sand while being surrounded by the endless Indian Ocean. Savour your meal as you witness the first rays of morning light on the horizon.
