Here is our hand-picked list of conveninently located and well equipped resorts in the Maldives.
Four Seasons Kuda Huraa – Spend your babymoon at the stylish and sophisticated paradise which even has a doctor on hand on the island. With an idyllic Maldivan setting, make sure to use their natural spa treatments, sample on of their three restaurants and watch your husband attempt to surf in the surf school! Its also renowned for being a family-friendly resort, so if you have other children be sure to bring them along to the kids clubs and use the babysitting services!
Cocoa Island – This private island resort will take your breath away. Perfect for those looking for a romantic and reenergising getaway. Try your hand at Yoga and sample their large range of treatments sessions whilst your husband dives or sails during the day. Priding themselves on their healthy cuisine, there’s no way you would leave here without feeling fully restored and ready to welcome your new baby into the world!
Gili Lankanfushi – Your pace of life will slow down completely as soon as you step (bare)foot onto this island. Only 20 minutes by speedboat from the main island, its accessibility is a great draw, and so is its luxury-villa styled accommodation. You can find ultimate privacy here as well as deliciously fresh, local meals.
One and Only Reethi Rah – This is a stunning all-villa resort spread over 109 acres of immense natural beauty. For the ultimate pampering, enjoy a treatment in an over-water suite at the spa. Yoga, tai chi and pilates are all available, as well as more intimate dolphin-watching and sunset cruises. As a particularly family-friendly resort, bring the other kids along and send them off to the kid’s clubs and make the most of the babysitting services on offer.
Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa – So long as you are OK with travelling an hour and a half in a small plane followed by a short speed boat journey, this is a great Babymoon destination. With two resort doctors (one German, one Indian) and with a hospital on an island just 5 minutes boat journey away, it is very well equipped. There are specific “Mother To Be” Spa treatments including massages by trained masseuses with minimum three years experience. Offering 60 – 90min treatments for relaxation, lymphatic drainage and to increase blood circulation, they are very particular and careful to use the palms rather than fingers, avoiding pressure points. There is also a doctor working in the spa.
