Maldives Family Holidays

maldives family holidays.jpg

The Maldives provide a haven for families simply wanting to get away for sun and relaxation or alternatively, adding it onto India – especially in the winter months of December, January and February.

Many of the hotels and resorts actively cater for children, and the best months to travel for a luxury family holiday to the Maldives are from December through to the end of April, which is perfect for those looking for warmth from Europe! Luxury holidays to the Maldives have become the popular choice for families, even those with babies and toddlers, who are seeking the very best in island living, wonderful sunshine, warm water, watersports, top dive sites and a safe environment.

There is such a choice – and children are catered for from infants, right through to late teens. Our pick includes a course for young marine biologists, learning about everything marine-related, as well as one for young environmentalists, educating the children on the Maldives, its people, its culture, while, of course, having serious fun at the same time!

Depending upon the ages of your children, there are special children’s clubs, which include party days, mini chefs in the kitchen, water experiments, music, science workshops and crab racing! The waters are shallow, so perfect for little ones. There are special children’s menus in most, if not all, of the restaurants, too, and there are always babysitting facilities for those that require them. Children can learn water sports, including scuba diving from the age of eight.

What Do Our Clients Say?

‘Greetings. this has turned out to be a paradise in so many a big thank you from us.

Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!

I could go on but I'll spare you.

Thanks a million

Judy and Mike’
