With family holidays in the Maldives at the top of the dream travel list again, it’s a perfect time to discover Villa Hotels and Resorts Maldives and save 10% on getaways at five idyllic private island resorts in the world’s loveliest archipelago.
Villa Hotels is one of the longest established companies in the Maldives and one of the largest. So it’s a great choice for any style of family holiday you have in mind from beachy and tranquil with younger kids to all-out-active day and night with water sport loving older kids, aspiring young divers or junior marine biologists.
All resorts are a short hop from Malé International Airport – if you know the Maldives, you’ll know that’s a big plus point for Villa Hotels. Beautifully designed family villas, beachfront with private terraces and space for larger families are luxurious, but standard at all five resorts. You can also look forward to dedicated children’s swimming pools; free kids’ clubs; professional babysitting; kids’ bikes on demand; unlimited water sports and lovingly prepared children’s menus in almost every resort restaurant.
Villa Hotels are now offering a 10% discount on all family holidays booked before 5 May 2021, so all you have to do is choose the resort you love best, take a look:
If you ever imagined the Maldives was too grown up for kids, Sun Island is the resort which clears up that myth every minute of the day. Family-friendly is very much the theme here and it plays out everywhere from crab racing on the gorgeous beaches to a dedicated kids’ pool and children’s menus in all six restaurants.
Kids’ bicycles for the asking, along with a daily programme of activities, only confirms how well the resort understands its youngest guests. Older children and teens can look forward to as much water sport action as they want: all non-motorised water sports are free at Sun Island. Feeding time for stingrays, sharks and tropical fish in the clear waters of the Indian Ocean are a dream for junior marine biologists – parents too. And speaking of family together-time, Sun Island is an expert there as well. So if you’ve ever longed to go sunset fishing, swim with whale sharks or take a dolphin cruise, those are just a few of the activities lined up for families at this idyllic resort.
Close to Malé International Airport might not seem like a Maldives family holiday deal breaker. But after a long haul flight with kids, a short hop of 15 minutes to Paradise Island resort is the kind of blissfully easy transfer you want. Of course, that’s only one reason families love it here and quite a small one compared to enormous two bedroom family beach villas with private sundecks; one of the largest swimming pools in the Maldives; a dedicated kids pool, and five beautifully designed restaurants.
Paradise Island is also the Villa Hotels’ resort for Wavy Navy Kids Club with its creative approach to play and the type of warm, cossetting atmosphere that gives parents confidence to take some time to themselves. And from spa soothing to diving, there’s plenty in Paradise to fill your time.
Set in an Indian Ocean lagoon, Fun Island is the choice for families whose perfect luxury holiday in the Maldives is packed with water sports, adventurous activities and entertainment, but has room for just lazing on beautiful beaches too.
Everything from surfing and windsurfing to SUP Ski, catamaran sailing and snorkelling lets you make the most of the incredibly warm, clear waters round Fun Island. And if you want to explore a little further than your own tropical paradise, you can get up to anything from dolphin safaris to days out in the Maldives’ capital Malé.
Royal Island is another flawless private island resort surrounded by a lagoon, only this particular tropical paradise sits at the heart of Baa Atoll, which isn’t just lovely, it’s also a carefully protected UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Excellent eco-credentials still leave room for plenty of activity and families can get up to anything here from snorkelling and canoeing to jetblading and surfing. Plus, the main swimming pool has a designated children's area and the dive school offers a PADI Bubblemaker programme for kids. There are also floodlit tennis courts for when you want to be sporty on dry land. And island hopping is just one of the fun experiences to try, if you can tear yourself away from your own island’s lovely beaches.
Made up of over 1000 coral islands floating in the Indian Ocean, the Maldives is a natural at social distancing. However, you’ll be pleased to hear Villa Hotels and Resorts has also introduced a comprehensive Clean Stay programme at all resorts for more of the peace of mind everyone needs at the moment.
