Family travel is one of the most amazing and most dreaded experiences one can plan for their holidays. Why dreadful? Well, everyone seems to like and demand for something special and where can you find a destination that offers it all in one package? Good question! Because we have just the right places for your consideration.
Yes, places. LUX* South Ari Atoll and LUX* North Male Atoll are two of the dreamiest properties in the LUX* chain of resorts that tick every single box. Pair that up with the breath-taking backdrop of the Maldives and brace yourselves to be spoilt for choices on your much-deserved getaway.
And about those young, energetic and enthusiastic juniors who needs more than mesmerizing scenery and amazing food to have a great time, here’s 10 fun-filled activities to get busy with.
Meeting Gentle Giants
The waters of the Maldives are irresistible not only for its captivating blue color and shimmer under light, but the myriad of biodiversity hidden beneath the waves. The kids can head over to a snorkel with whale sharks (that only feed on plankton, so they are safe!) and say hello to gentle giants of the sea that are so long, the story-time back home will last for days.
How fast can you scavenger around every nook and corner of the island to find a treasured Message in a Bottle? Every morning, many bottles are hidden away in places where only the creatively curious can find, filled with special treats s that guests can use during their stay from a complimentary homemade gelato, a pampering spa massage or a farm-to-fork cooking class. Parents, this is your que to sneak some spa time!
Every child arriving on the LUX* Maldives islands are handed a Little Explorer booklet, where they can collect stamps for every designated activity completed. For every completed booklet, juniors are awarded a big local marine life plush as a well-deserved award.
From Holidaymakers to Chefs
The resident pastry chef joins in all the fun with special baking and latte art lessons, letting the kids take over charge of dessert duty for the next family dinner!
Whether it is nature, food, culture, adventures, or wellness, the carefully curated Collectable Experiences will entertain, educate, and create unforgettable memories for families of all ages.
The exclusive LUX* Surf Breaks are a mere stone’s throw away from the beach at LUX* North Male Atoll. There are spots all around the resort suited for beginners to advanced surfers, and even a private sandbank for kite surfers to take off from.
Pick up your camera and team up with LUX* Photofanatics who are experts of lighting up your Instagram on fire. They know the best spots around the island and are more than willing to guide you as you capture the memories of a precious time well spent.
