Maldives Promotion House – Promising balmy weather, safe beaches with calm, shallow water and enough family-friendly facilities to shake a coconut tree, Olhuveli Beach & Spa Resort is paradise found for families. Most importantly, the resort offers its cheapest rates in June, plus seven nights for the price of six – providing the perfect excuse to escape for the extra bank holiday and the summer half-term.
Parents can put these precious pounds saved towards a holiday treat or two for the kids. What about a watersport the whole family can enjoy, such as kayaking on the calm waters of the blue lagoon that surrounds the island? Or for the more adventurous, exploring the Maldives’ underwater world on a PADI Bubblemaker dive course, which can be taken by children aged eight plus.
Located in South Malé Atoll, Olhuveli is a beautiful island retreat with stunning beaches, abundant sandbanks and plenty of facilities and activities to suit all types of family. From its free, daily kids’ programme (for children aged three to 11) to its fantastic watersports centre, which offers fun tubes, banana boat rides and the first licensed kite-surfing school in the Maldives, there is something new to try every day.
This Maldivian resort also offers a babysitting service, ideal for parents wanting some time out from the children to enjoy a treatment at the Sun Spa, or a romantic meal on the beach under a canopy of stars.
An excursion is a great way to make the most of the Maldives’ beautiful sunshine and form lasting memories to cherish as a family forever. Olhuveli offers a wealth of half-day, full-day and evening excursions, including dolphin cruises, fishing trips and snorkelling safaris – where it’s possible for children and adults alike to encounter wildlife they might never have seen in its natural habit before, including dolphins, rays, turtles and reef sharks. Guests can even try their luck at ‘finding Nemo’ – every child’s favourite fish – or the clown fish to adults!
