family luxury beach holiday in maldives

04 November, 2022

In this brief guide, you will discover that travelling to the Maldives is perfect for families. With warm azure waters and sun-soaked sands, this piece of paradise is an idyllic setting for adventure, fun and times of togetherness. And this is especially true at The Nautilus, where we believe that quality time with loved ones is one of life’s finest luxury experience.

We have put together this family travel guide outlining just a few of the many reasons why the Maldives promises an unforgettable escape for you and your children.

1. Big blue adventures – and slower moments

Maldives is a dream destination for exotic adventures, as well as slower moments of sublime unwinding – appealing to all personalities and ages. And the most meaningful of these moments are surely those that cater to a range of desires and needs, those that suit every individual while, at the same time, celebrating togetherness.

At The Nautilus, we delight in dreaming up these kinds of experiences. One such must-do family-friendly excursion is our dolphin safari, where you and your loved ones hop aboard a luxury yacht, cruising into the beautiful blue to seek out these incredible, playful creatures to witness their dancing, diving joy – a display that seems like it’s just for you. Another family favourite you’re sure to love is the sandbank cinema – a private movie screening in the world’s most spectacular setting, complete with gourmet snacks, popcorn and bonfire-roasted marshmallows.

2. Beach days like no other

The appeal of the beach is irresistible to all, and no more so than in the Maldives – the epitome of beachy bliss. From snorkelling our world-famous underwater treasures, gliding effortlessly over the sea’s shimmering surface, or skidding across sands in beach sports, to simply sunning yourself while enjoying a holiday read and a cocktail – Maldives’s sandy shores are truly unrivalled when it comes to spending a day at the beach.

At our ultra-luxury island resort, we have thought of every detail in setting up the perfect beach day, from sand to sea. Enjoy a game of beach football or volleyball – or a friendly SUP race in our sheltered lagoon. Or how about a family fun tubing adventure for absolute excitement? If you’re travelling with tiny tots, The Nautilus’s beach offers the best sandpit imaginable, with activities like shell collecting and sandcastle building designed to get the whole family involved.

3. Family feasting

Our archipelagic nation boasts traditional cuisine of tantalising flavour fusions drawn from the bounty of the sea and the spice trade of our seafaring region. At our ultra-luxe resort, you can expect gastronomy that honours our cultural heritage, borrows from the world’s favourite culinary art forms and is tailored to your particular tastes – and those of your children.

Some of The Nautilus’s most popular feasting experiences include a barbecue picnic on a secluded sandbank, prepared by your private chef for your family alone. Additionally, you can explore a range of dishes at the cooking classes and enjoy the Mini Chef experiences that invite your kids to the fun of making pizza and decorating cupcakes.

4. Kids club, island style

Maldives is a treasure trove for children, offering novel tropical experiences and discoveries around every corner of an island wonderland.

At The Nautilus, we have an expertly designed and run kids club to facilitate these discoveries, with a programme of fun activities to keep your children far from even the thought of boredom! Our Young Wonderers Club welcomes children aged 11 and under to choose from a range of things to do that engage their growing, unique personalities. Games like Dhalhu Vetti (Maldivian bowling), themed arts and crafts, marine biology classes and mini-discos are just some of the enticing activities on offer – all conducted under professional supervision.

5. Time for mom and dad

Maldives is the picture of romance, with exceptional sunsets, indulgent luxury, pampering couples’ treatments and exotic adventures, making our Indian Ocean idyll an enduring favourite with honeymooners and couples. And just because your family has grown beyond the two of you, it doesn’t mean these romantic moments are no longer possible.

On our fairy tale shores, we prioritise private, intimate moments for couples, while providing childcare options so that you can truly let go. Besides the Young Wonderers Club, The Nautilus also has resident babysitters available to look after your precious little ones while you enjoy some cherished time for two. Sundowner cruises, private scuba diving and the finest barefoot dining beckon you to celebrate your lifelong love story.
