Sheraton Maldives revamps family offering as part of $20 mln upgrade
Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa has revamped its family offerings, as part of the resort’s recent multimillion-dollar renovation.
At the heart of the island resort’s wide-scale renovations has been newly designed family services that offer entertainment for young children through newly fitted top-of-the-range amenities.
The Sheraton Maldives boasts 10 different luxury room categories dotted around the island, comprising three types of cottages, all of which feature interconnecting rooms for parents and children. As part of the renovation, the resort hast just introduced a new category, ‘Cottage with Pool’, specifically designed with families in mind and including a private plunge pool for young children to safely splash around and with direct access to the white sandy beaches.
The upgraded Sheraton Adventure Club has been designed for children aged 4 to 12, and provides an abundance of activities all around the resort, ranging from water sports, cooking classes to interactive beach activities.
The resort has also curated a selection of tailored themed evenings for families to enjoy, including several seasonal experiences, such as Father Christmas gate crashing the full-resort festive sandbank picnic on a fly board.
“What sets Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa apart from other Maldivian resorts is, undeniably our family appeal. Since completing our renovation programme we have seen a significant increase in parents with young children or teens choosing our resort for their annual family holiday,” Emilio Fortini, General Manager at Sheraton Maldives, was quoted in a statement, as saying.
“Our offering is so varied from the new range of room categories, the easy access location, our tailored childcare services and our bespoke water sports and wellness experiences. As a result of this, families can spend quality time together without feeling on top of each other – this is also largely due to the strategic layout of the island. We are now starting to see an increase in multi-generational visits too, as our tropical paradise suits the whole team — from toddlers to grandparents.”
Following the USD 20 million renovation, which completed in December 2018, Sheraton Maldives now exhibits beautiful Maldivian architecture with a contemporary twist, as well as exclusive villa host service, reflecting the five-star experience guaranteed at the property.
Sheraton Maldives is situated on the private island of Furanafushi in the North Male Atoll, just a 15-minute speedboat ride away from the Maldives’ main Velana International Airport.
The five-star resort offers 176 guest rooms designed to blend into the surrounding turquoise waters, pristine beaches and lush greenery. Also boasting seven unique restaurants and bars, the Shine Spa for Sheraton –located on its very own island — and three outdoor tropical fresh water pools, the resort caters for all guests and is the perfect destination for honeymooners, families with young children or teens and solo travellers alike.
