The Maldives en famille?

Having kids in tow may no longer mean that people on their honeymoons are restricted to bucket-and-spade locations like Skegness or, if you’re really pushing the boat out, Benidorm.


If a new trend in the Maldives is anything to go by, destinations well-known for luxury holidays could also soon become well-known for their ability to cater for the little ones.


Susan D’Arcy, writing for the Times, points out that a number of resorts are now opening in the Maldives to cater for people who – shock, horror – have had children before they got married, complete with kids’ clubs, games rooms, computer games and even discos for slightly older children.


One such haven is the new hotel Diva, which opened in May this year on Baa Atoll – the general manager says that the Maldives are ideal for families.


“The Maldives don’t require a string of vaccinations and the shallow lagoons here mean that the beaches are incredibly safe for kids,” he comments.


However, the best bit might be that some areas of the resort are adult-only, including the six bars and restaurants.


Well in that case, it would be rude not to try it, what do you say? Why not share your own experiences of travelling with a young family in the comments section below.
