Planning the Perfect Family Vacation In The Maldives

January 13, 2019

Planning a wonderful vacation for the entire family can seem daunting. However, armed with these useful tips, it’s possible, even easy to put together a holiday that the whole family will love.

Research

Every vacation starts with proper planning. To get the most out of your vacation, start by doing your research. Is your destination family friendly? Does it have sleeping facilities for kids? Which rooms do you need to book? Are the activities child-friendly? Doing research will help you avoid inconveniences miles away from home. Our family plan for children under 15 years provides discounted rates for rooms, meals and some transfers. On our family-friendly resorts, children can roam about and play on the pristine beach without fear of disturbing anyone. Kuredu Island Resort & Spa’s Private Pool Family Suite, Garden and Beach bungalows accommodate 2 adults and 1 child while Meeru Island Resort & Spa and Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa’s Garden Rooms and Beach Villas accommodate 2 adults and 2 children. The children can have their own day beds, as well as baby cots upon request.

Get the Kids Involved

A great way to get the kids excited about the vacation is to involve them in the process whenever possible. In the days leading up to the vacation, you can learn about your destination together. Visiting the website and browsing together can be useful. This will allow them to ask any questions they may have. It will also lessen their surprise or shock about the destination. Another great tip is to ask them to help you pack for the trip. This will help them get excited about the upcoming adventure.

Plan

Adventure doesn’t have to be spontaneous. Sometimes, a little planning can go a long way. Find out what activities are best for your kids to enjoy and carve out time for them. You may find the island picture perfect and dreamy, but the kids are likely to need more entertainment. Plan for their time to ensure each day brings a different adventure. The wading pool available at Kuredu and the Komas Kids Club at Meeru provide a lovely escape.  The Kids Club at Kuredu for children aged between 3 and 12 has an activity program that ensures a good time throughout. The outdoor play areas are the perfect places for the kids to let loose and make new friends. For ocean adventures, the introductory Scuba diving course at Veligandu Island Resort & Spa for children aged 10 years and above is a must try. There is no boredom in paradise.

Our final tip would be to relax and enjoy, you are in paradise after all. To book your next family vacation, visit the individual resort websites and take advantage of the special offers.

We can’t wait to welcome you!
