The Residence Maldives launches Little Explorer package with child friendly experiences
The Residence by Cenizaro hotels has launched an all-new ‘Little Explorer’ package, showcasing fun and inspirational family and child friendly experiences in each destination.
Crystal-clear waters and marine life are top of the agenda in the Maldives. Perfectly placed on one of the largest and deepest atolls, The Residence Maldives has some of the best and most remote diving in the world.
But it’s not just for the adults; the resort’s very own PADI Five-Star Dive Centre has a variety of classes and excursions for the little ones to more experienced divers. Rich in marine life, the Gaafu Alifu atoll is home to over 1,200 species of fish and multi-coloured coral.
For water babies, the resort is on hand with snorkelling equipment to explore the nearby reef where families can spot eagle rays, green turtles and parrotfish. The calm sea makes the Maldives one of the greatest adventure playgrounds — sail a catamaran, speed through the water on a kayak or attempt to balance while windsurfing.
After a busy day of swimming and exploring, little ones can escape to The Spa by Clarins to experience the resort’s new kid’s spa menu. Relax and rest with a Superhero neck, shoulder and hand massage, to soothe tired muscles, or try the Rock Star – a gentle head massage with warm coconut oil followed by a foot massage.
Starting from USD 148++per child, the Maldives Little Explorer Package includes a diving lesson with the PADI Five-Star School, complimentary use of non-motorised water sports and snorkelling equipment, and one children’s spa treatment.
Awarded the Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor consecutively since its opening in 2012, The Residence Maldives lies on the unspoilt southern island of Falhumaafushi in the Gaafu Alifu atoll.
The intimate retreat located just 20 kilometres north of the equator offers 94 beach-front and overwater villas. Designed to complement its surroundings and provide a sense of place, the villas have been created using natural materials and are decorated with local artefacts.
The Spa by Clarins is the only one of its kind in the Maldives, and offers a range of treatments created exclusively for the hotel and a place to escape – it sits out on a jetty in the lagoon. Other facilities include water sports, a fitness centre, kids club and excursions to nearby islands.
The diving surrounding the resort is exceptional, and its PADI five star certified dive centre offers all level of snorkelers and scuba divers the opportunity to discover the unspoilt coral reefs and rich marine life of the southern Maldivian atoll.
