Maldives with Kids
The Maldives is a beautiful destination for a family holiday. One&Only Reethi Rah is an island resort buzzing with life and energy. Staff is constantly thinking up new ways to keep guests entertained, from the KidsOnly Club to excursions for teenagers and relaxing and romantic activities for parents.
Upon arrival at Male Airport, you’ll be met and escorted to your hotel via a speedboat or seaplane.
Settle into your luxurious accommodation and spend the remainder of the day at leisure. Have lunch at one of the many restaurants or poolside in your villa, enjoy watersports, yoga or spa treatments, and indulge in a complimentary afternoon tea at Fanditha.
Come evening, parents can enjoy some downtime while younger kids enjoy activities at the kids' club. We particularly like the One&Only KidsOnly Club and teens can enjoy complimentary homemade ice cream at OneClub, all followed by a family movie night on the beach.
Start the day experiencing some of the world’s most stunning underwater environments with experienced PADI-trained instructors. The reefs and channels offer incredible visibility and programs are available to suit all levels and ages.
In the evening, wind down with some al fresco dining at The Chef’s Garden, or enjoy sunset views from the open-air teppanyaki stations at Tapasake.
Snorkelling, Turtle Adventure & Shark Safari
Today you’ll embark on a private island-hopping excursion.
Sail out to a sandbank in the middle of the ocean where you can snorkel in the clear turquoise waters and spot multi-colored fish, manta rays, sea turtles, and even dolphins.
In the afternoon, younger kids can set out on a Turtle Adventure and older kids will love the Shark Safari with a marine biologist.
Water sports and Arts & Crafts
Spend the day enjoying some watersports. Children can take their pick from the activities on offer at SPLASH Watersports Centre including banana tube rides, kayaking, flyboarding, or windsurfing.
Alternatively, opt for a two-hour class in Reethi Rah’s Artist’s Studio with renowned Australian marine artist Christopher Hogan. This is an activity that the whole family can do together, learning about Hogan’s contemporary and abstract styles, painting in a professional artist’s gallery, and then taking home the finished masterpieces.
Luxury Sunset Cruise
Chill out and relax on your last full day in the Maldives.
Sunbathe, read by the pool, head to the spa, and let the kids roam free at the KidsOnly Club.
In the evening, treat the family to a spectacular sunset cruise. Snack on canapes and sip on champagne as you watch the Maldivian sunset over the Indian Ocean from the comfort of a luxury catamaran or sailing dhoni.
Today you’ll be escorted by speedboat to the airport for your onward journey.
This basic structure works well, but don’t forget that Lightfoot Travel can provide a range of experiences and we tailor-make each itinerary based on your travel requirements.
