Family Friendly Resorts in the Maldives

by Rianne Ojeh on 28 July 2014, 12:07PM


We want you to know that children don’t limit your options when booking a holiday with Travelbag. Costly trips to tourist traps in mainland Greece and Spain aren’t the only choice. These days, flying long haul with little ones is much easier than you’d think. There’s plenty of in-flight entertainment, regular drinks and snacks, and if you’re flying overnight, pillows and blankets are available on request. At just over ten hours from a London airport, the Maldives might be further than you’re used to, but they’re more than worth the effort - this is a guide to the best family friendly resorts located on these staggeringly beautiful islands.


Centara Grand Lux
The rather magnificent Centara Grand Lux is one of the most revered holiday resorts in the Maldives. It was built as a direct response to the lack of four star family resorts located on these islands, so you can guarantee that your children will be provided for in every way. In fact, the resort has ten Deluxe Family Water Villas available with each containing specially designed children’s rooms including a television and a PlayStation console with games. There aren’t many kids who’d complain about that, or the fact that these rooms are extremely close to the edge of a colourful coral reef. With safety precautions and child locks on the descent down to the reef, there’s no need to worry about the proximity of the water – just make sure that you take the opportunity to go snorkelling. If the Centara Grand Lux sounds like the right Maldives resort for you and your little ones, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the experts at Travelbag. We offer full package deals to this location, including family friendly flights.    


If you’re looking to escape from the rigours of modern life, the Bandos resort is a superb choice. At this luxury location, families aren’t just welcome – they’re directly catered for. With a huge sports centre, featuring badminton, table tennis and squash equipment, as well as an extensive outdoor play area, there’s no danger of the kids getting bored of this tropical paradise. They can split their time between the soft golden Maldives beaches, the glittering blue ocean waters and the bustling Bandos resort, where there are always new friends waiting to be made. As if all that weren’t exciting enough, the experts at Travelbag are going to let you into a little secret – there are trained female staff members on site who can be hired for evening babysitting duties. If you and the other half fancy a night out at a beachfront restaurant, followed by drinks and dancing, you can rest assured that your babies will be sleeping safe in their beds, with the noise of the waves in their ears, by the time you get home.

This spectacular gem of an island resort is located on the exquisite Malé Atoll, surrounded by soft sands and gently lapping blue waters. There’s no better place for families looking for a great balance between luxury and leisure, between total relaxation and ultimate adventure. At Meeru, you define your holiday – you can either spend your trip chilling out in the Jacuzzi or one of the many spas, or you can get involved with diving, water polo, table tennis, squash and even crab racing. The centre section of the Meeru resort comes highly recommended to families with young ones, as it has a supervised children’s swimming pool and a lively restaurant with entertainment suitable for visitors of all ages. Yet, this central section is just one of three very distinct areas of the resort – whatever it is that you’re looking for in the Maldives, you’ll find it here at Meeru. Your only regret will be having to leave it all behind at the end of your trip – don’t worry though, with these prices, it won’t be long until you’re back on your favourite beach, sipping a cocktail and building sandcastles with the kids.
