Basking serenely in the Indian Ocean, the Maldives really is as magnificent as the pictures: think stilted villas, violet sunsets, white sand and glittering sea. To relax and revitalise, we’d argue that there’s no better place on earth.
With over 150 resorts, it can be tricky to work out which one is right for you. But our experts have personally been to a sizeable chunk of them, and we are committed to finding the resort that will make your experience outstanding.
This is our ‘edit’ of just three family resorts to give you a flavour of what's on offer, but as always: we believe in finding the right resort for the right people and providing ease and security throughout your stay. For further tips and advice, get in touch or take a look at our definitive Maldives planning guide.
With a range of fabulous experiences for all ages, from snorkelling to dolphin-spotting, The Maldives has a lot to offer families. The following resorts cater exceptionally well to the family market, with kids’ activity programmes, child-friendly restaurants and the calmest seas for safe swimming.
SIX SENSES LAAMU
Six Senses Lammu is all about understated luxury: rustic and unpretentious, but exceptionally high quality. The family activities are varied and well thought out: Cinema Under the Stars, treasure hunts, cycling, surfing, morning yoga, dolphin cruises, or an island hop with a picnic, to name just a few. Kids will adore The Den, a professionally managed complimentary kids’ club with indoor and outdoor games, movies, junior baking and more. You’re also in for a real treat with the Family Beach Villa, which has a pool and a panoramic upper deck.
7 nights from £20,208 full board for a family of 4, including seaplane transfers and a family beach villa with a pool. Price based on travelling during October half term with two children under 12, but dates can of course change. See further inclusions at the bottom of the page.
