With its emphasis on unparalleled luxury, palm-fringed white-sand beaches and sunken coral gardens waiting to be discovered under the azure waters, the Maldives delivers stunning, untouched natural beauty alongside soothing pampering and creature comforts.


Don’t mistake this paradise as a destination exclusively for romantic couples, though. The Maldives is a dream destination for families too. It caters for a wide variety of activities that suit every generation. In fact, whatever your preferred family holiday style there is always a way to see these coral islands in style.


Another world

With some of the best diving and snorkelling in the world, calm waters and abundant marine life, diving in the Maldives can be a beautiful way to bond with your family. There are many opportunities to gaze in wonder at the colourful coral gardens, submerged caves and the turtles, rays and sharks that swim below the schools of tropical fish. What’s more, in water this warm there really is no need to wear a cumbersome wetsuit – just leap in!


Not just another beach

The Maldives is blessed with the best beaches in the world, spread evenly across its 1200 islands. This means whether you need watersports, fine dining, access to designer boutiques or a sense of peace and isolation, it is always easy to find the perfect beach for you. Wherever you settle down, there will be soft, brilliant white sands and dazzlingly clear turquoise waters.


The perfect resorts and hotels

Every resort in the Maldives feels like its own private island – and some literally are. The world’s most exclusive hotels compete with each other to offer better services in ever-more luxurious settings. Personal butlers, private pools, world-class sports facilities, concierge services and pillow menus help to make your family’s stay as ideal as the scenery around you.



Here are four of the best hotels to suit four very different family holidays in the Maldives.

For families looking to get away from it all


Ayada, on the Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll, is set in its own 15 acres of tropical paradise. Perfect for exploring on foot or by bike, it offers a kids’ club for the younger members, hidden bars to discover and an Ottoman Lounge and Turkish bath for the adults.


For foodie families

The Taj Exotica takes culinary perfection to new heights with its fusion food executed with grace, panache and taste. Set on a long, thin island whose surrounding waters are perfectly calm and brilliantly hued thanks to being part of one of the largest lagoons in the Maldives.


For families looking for fun

The Viceroy Maldives adds a playful touch to the family activities it offers. Night snorkelling, crab-racing, petting Clifford the blind turtle, dining in the treehouse and very spacious villas with private pools are amongst its quirky touches.


For the ultimate luxury

The beautiful, slick Coco Privé Kuda Hithi is a boutique hotel that is only available for private hire. Its architecture is stunning, the private chef is all yours and the nearby reefs are monitored by resident marine experts.
