The Maldives is easily one of the most beautiful places on earth and it’s only improved by the fact that it’s so well equipped for family travel. Each private island is home to its own luxury resort and is big enough so that your kids have ample room to run and play, but small enough that you don’t need to worry about them wandering too far! Here are the best resorts in the Maldives for travels with kids.

1. Soneva Jani

Soneva Jani is what dreams are made of. The majority of the resort’s rooms are overwater villas, but they are perhaps the most luxurious overwater villas you will find in the Maldives. These expansive villas are sure to excite the kids but even more so the adults. Each water villa has one to four rooms, a private plunge pool, a large sun deck for you to laze on, and Soneva Jani’s most famous feature– a water slide leading right into the turquoise lagoon! The master bedroom also has a retractable roof so that you can see the Milky Way from your bed at the touch of a button! If you manage to tear yourselves away from the luxuries of your room, there are thrilling kid-friendly activities on offer at Soneva. There is a kid’s club called Mini Den with exciting excursions on offer, a chocolate and ice cream parlour, and even a floating cinema! For more enriching experiences, Soneva has a well-trained team to teach your young ones how to swim and snorkel.

2. Constance Halaveli Maldives

Set on a secluded island, Constance Halaveli is the perfect combination of luxury and simplicity. The hotel prides itself on sustainable luxury and its simple architecture combined with the beauty of the natural world provides a stunning backdrop to your family holiday. Located in the heart of the North Ari Atoll and shaped like a dhoni, a traditional Maldivian fishing boat, Constance Halaveli beautifully captures the spirit of the Maldives. Each villa has its own private plunge pool so you’re never too far away from a quick dip, but be sure to explore the resort’s thriving house reef where technicoloured corals flourish and attract exotic fish. If you’re travelling with younger kids, you will be happy to know that there is a kids’ club that has several activities ranging from arts & crafts to a build-your-own pizza station! Both you and your kids are sure to enjoy the magic of Constance Halaveli Maldives.

3. Jumeirah Vittaveli

When you want some R&R, there is a kids’ club as well as an on-demand babysitting service to make sure your little ones are well looked after, as well as a Teens’ Lounge. There are also several activities for the whole family, from stand up paddleboarding to exploring the resort’s stunning house reef. However, one of the most memorable activities would be trying out the resort’s eco-friendly ice rink made from a novel material called Glice. Currently, the hotel has great offers for family travel, from complimentary babysitting services or a private family BBQ on the beach.

4. Four Seasons Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru
