No sightseeing to organise, no car hire, just long days of swimming in the warm Indian Ocean, feeding manta rays off the jetty and treating yourselves to some me time in the spa and restaurants. The Maldives is an easy option.

The one-hotel, one-island model gives the whole family an unrivalled sense of freedom, a rare and wonderful thing in today’s security-conscious world. We can help you make the right choice, depending on your family and personal interests. Create a holiday that encourages curiosity, learning about sea conservation with a marine biologist. Mix this up with the kids club for younger children, aquatic activities and relaxing by the pool and you have a winning combination for a family holiday.

Family Fun

There is so much beyond the beach in the Maldives. Aside from excellent standards of service and food, there are the most imaginative and inspiring family experiences going, including dolphin trips with marine biologists, coral adoption schemes, resident artists offering painting classes and all manner of water sports. If you can tear yourselves away from the beach, maybe circumnavigate the island by bike and take time to look up – the skies in the Maldives are pretty epic.

When to travel

The Maldives is a year-round destination, and the best season to visit the Maldives is between November and April. With both low rainfall and humidity, the perfect time to visit is February, perfect for half term sun.

Diving conditions are generally good all year round but can become choppier in May and June. However, June in the Maldives is a great time for those who want to discover more marine life in this Indian Ocean paradise. As it is the beginning of the monsoon season, the huge increase in plankton draws in hundreds of whale sharks and manta rays to the region.
