All the finer points have been considered for smaller visitors to the Constance Belle Mare Plage in Mauritius, such as children’s dressing gowns, local arts and crafts sessions, an à la carte menu and strollers for tots. The half board basis is superb value for families, and groups will find the villas super-convenient due to their kitchenettes; ideal for heating up bottles and for bedtime snacks.
Also on the island is The Westin Turtle Bay Resort & Spa Mauritius. The resort offers a fantastic kids’ club, while accommodation in an Ocean Deluxe Family Room is ideal; with its king-size bed set in an alcove to give the feeling of being all in one room, but with added privacy. Younger guests will receive a complimentary welcome bag full of treats on arrival too, while for parents there’s sparkling wine and fruit.
If you’re travelling en masse with under-18’s of varying ages, One&Only Le Saint Géran, is a terrific choice. The kids’ clubs are divided into two age groups, so young guests can easily make friends, and the complimentary watersports, tennis and cycling will ensure teens have plenty to keep them active on the island. Rooms and suites vary in size, but with numerous interconnecting options we’ll find your group the perfect combination to suit.
Or if One&Only Reethi Rah should take your fancy, you needn’t worry about the children being bored. This exclusive resort boasts the Maldives first rock climbing wall, a golf simulator, kids’ club with a pool and waterslide, football pitch and tennis courts…to name but a few! Unusually for the Maldives, this resort has plenty of space, so whether you’re visiting during school holidays or not, you’ll enjoy peace and quiet.
Don’t think that just because you’re travelling with little people in tow that you won’t be well-cared for at super-high-end luxury
At Per AQUUM’s NIYAMA they’ve just added a whole host of new family-friendly amenities. Recently unveiled offerings at the island resort include a purpose built children’s club, a new children’s pool and an ice cream parlour. There are also a number of new experiential activities and additions, such as pyjama parties (with compulsory pillow fights!) at SUBSIX, and a popcorn maker in your room! Super-cool new tree house restaurant – NEST – is the place to see and be seen.
The Jumeirah Vittaveli is extremely luxurious, and if you team a stay here with one of the other exceptional Jumeirah properties on the Arabian Gulf, you will have the makings of a truly memorable family holiday. We’d suggest a stay in one of the 2-bedroom Beach Suites, which have a twin room upstairs, king downstairs, a large pool and living area. The resort also presents a children’s club, bouncy castle, playground and teenager’s room.
Constance Halaveli is a family-friendly, deluxe property showcasing numerous activities for both young and old. The complimentary kids’ club has tonnes of activities for those aged 4-11, including cooking classes and movie time. A babysitting service is available for when you need a night off, and as one would expect from the Constance group the accommodation is fantastic; the Family Beach and Double Storey Beach Villas being particular favourites as they easily sleep two adults and up to three children under the age of 17-years-old.
Utter indulgence is the order of your stay on an all-inclusive package at LUX* Maldives; one of the biggest islands in the Maldives and offering plenty to do. Highlights include the pop-up cinema where you can watch a movie under the Indian Ocean stars, and even language classes at Studio 17; the teen club. There’s a great choice of accommodation for families, starting with the Beach Pavilion that is ideal for a couple and one child. Inter-connecting options are also available.
