An Adventure For The Whole Family In The Maldives

August 2, 2019

While the Maldives was considered solely as a honeymoon spot for a long time, over the years, the destination has expanded to accommodate growing families. Now, on the expansive white beaches, families can camp for a few weeks, soaking up the sun and enjoying what the Maldives has to offer, which luckily goes beyond building sandcastles on the beach.

A useful tip while travelling with your family is to always look out for a deal. For larger families, travelling costs can be staggering when taking into account airfare, room rates, food, activities, clothing, etc. Innahura Maldives Resort comes to families’ aid by firstly, being a resort where anyone can have a quintessential Maldivian getaway without breaking the bank. With their special offer for stays between now and October, guests enjoy a 30% discount and children get to stay for free. Their adjacent beach bungalows are perfect for families or groups staying together, and their escapes programme has activities that the whole family will enjoy.

Ensuring that the kids’ interest and hobbies are satisfied during the vacation is a sure way of ensuring that they have an unforgettable holiday. Kuredu Island Resort & Spa takes care of that with the Football Escapes programme in December. Children aged between five and fifteen get to receive world-class football coaching from Rio Ferdinand, English football legend, and a team of UEFA licensed coaches over five days. Kuredu is perfect for family vacations as it also boasts of a well-equipped Kid’s and Teen’s Club, where children can engage in tailored activities and make friends.

Another great way to have a wonderful family vacation is by involving the children when planning the holiday. Sitting down and poring through the resort’s websites gives the kids an idea of what to expect when they arrive, and something to look forward to. Koamas Kid’s Club at Meeru Island Resort & Spa is manned by highly skilled professionals who strive to make your children’s time on the island memorable. With well-thought-out programmes detailing activities that are often fun and educational, such as coconut painting, the kid’s club is an integral part of your vacation. Have a look at the special offer available for Winter 2019/2020 and book early.

Our other family-friendly resorts under Crown & Champa Resorts include Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa, Veligandu Island Resort & Spa, Hurawalhi Island Resort (15 years and above), and Kudadoo Maldives Private Island by Hurawalhi (15 years and above).

Bucket List Adventures In The Maldives

June 28, 2019

The beauty and charm of the Maldives are undeniable. Warm temperatures, expansive stretches of pristine beach and turquoise waters have appealed to travellers seeking some respite from the biting winter cold. While there is much to do on land, from sipping delicious cocktails to receiving a world-class massage in a scenic spa, there is much more to do at sea. The tropical climate and the abundance of magnificent reefs brimming with marine life, make the Maldives a swimmer’s paradise. Below are a few thrilling bucket list experiences to try.

Spend A Day At Sea In Vilamendhoo

Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa is world-renowned for having one of the finest house reefs in the Maldives. A diver’s dream, Vilamendhoo’s house reef is just a short swim away from the beach, allowing swimmers to experience the magical underwater world. Vilamendhoo has a 5 Star PADI Certified Dive Centre, operated by Euro-Divers, that offers not only courses but also excursions. One such excursion is the Ocean Discovery, a full day trip that takes you to the most popular reefs, giving you the chance to hopefully spot and swim with Whale Sharks, Manta Rays, Sea Turtles and so much more. Swimming with Whale Sharks, the gentle giants of the sea, is an unforgettable experience that we highly recommend.

Visit The ‘Turtle Airport’ In Kuredu

Ten minutes away from Kuredu Island Resort & Spa are the Kuredu Caves. This popular dive spot is also fondly referred to as ‘Turtle Airport’ as it is home to an astounding number of sea turtles. Adventurers at heart, Sea Turtles often travel for thousands of miles, crossing oceans to feed before returning home. Kuredu Caves has a series of overhangs that drop down to twenty metres. Here, you are likely to see stingrays, porcupine fish, lionfish, moray eels and much more. Kuredu’s Dive Centre is operated by Prodivers Maldives, a 5 Star PADI Dive Centre that caters to beginners and experienced divers alike.

Whether you are looking for a thrilling holiday, or a tranquil retreat, as Crown and Champa Resorts, we have something to meet your needs. View our resorts and find your next holiday destination.
