The Maldives is easily one of the best destinations in the world for family holidays though you need to properly plan your getaway; here are some things to keep in mind.

Choose the Right Resort

Choose a family-friendly resort that’s ideally around a 10-minute speedboat ride from the airport so you don’t waste any time in starting your vacay! Ideal options include Kurumba Maldives which features spacious family villas near the beach with private outdoor pools. Such properties also offer convenient full-board and all-inclusive dining packages as well as kids’ clubs, as you will find out next!

Check for a Kids’ Club

When planning your family holidays in Maldives, a resort with a kids’ club offered on a complimentary basis is perfect. Check if it includes a spacious recreation centre and features beachfront games and plenty of engaging activities like making arts & crafts and painting. If you’re travelling with older kids, see if there’s a club for teens too with water sports and indoor and outdoor games.
