1. Soneva Fushi
Largest Kids’ club in the entire Maldives
Whether you have toddlers or teenagers in tow, Soneva Fushi and its vast array of family-friendly attractions. The main highlight of the resort is The Den, which is deemed to be the largest children’s club in the Maldives and South Asia with its floor area that’s comparable to that of 6 full tennis courts. The Den packs in a humongous playground to tickle every child’s imagination (complete with Lego rooms and dress-up rooms!), shallow swimming pools, an 8-metre tall pirate ship, and even giant musical piano keys built into the floor. The best part? The whole area is technology-free, so your kids will get a much-needed gadget break and focus on all the fun and learning!
On top of The Den, Soneva Fushi has leafy gardens, sandy beaches, lush jungle and so much more to explore. That said, older kids can join the fun-packed weekly activity programmes, whether showing off their culinary skills in Junior Masterchef, playing beach volleyball, trying out water sports, star-gazing, or dancing at the disco. With everyone entertained, for sure, you and your hubby will get that most awaited me time.
If you’d like to spend some quality time with your kids as well, you may watch a family film at Cinema Paradiso while snacking on unlimited popcorn. Meanwhile, the kids can try out different flavours from Soneva Fushi’s kaleidoscopic collection of complimentary chocolates, ice creams and sorbets. The treats are all unlimited, so better watch those kids or they may get a sugar crash.
As for the accommodation, Soneva Fushi features spacious and luxurious villas, complete with all the necessary amenities needed for a family trip.
