Planning your uber fun family vacay in the Maldives? Here are some top things to consider before heading over to the tropical paradise.
1. Getting to your (desti)nation
The Maldives consists of over 1,190 islands, grouped in 27 atolls, and the country covers an area of nearly 300 square kilometres. While the country has a small land mass, the islands are widely spread out over the Indian archipelago, making it challenging to travel from one to another. The main mode of interisland transportation is by speedboat, domestic flight or seaplane transfers. It’s crucial to make sure that the resort of your choice is easily accessible from the Velana International Airport, especially if you’re travelling with children. Kandima Maldives is one such destination, easily reachable by a 40-minute seaplane transfer from the airport, or by a 30-minute domestic flight followed by a 20-minute speedboat ride to the resort — making the transfers smooth and hassle-free.
2. Your kind of place
If safety, comfort and stylish accommodation are what you are looking for, then you don’t need to look any further. Our beach accommodation options are the best suited for you and bring you the best features, especially if you are travelling with children. Our Sunset Beach Pool Villas with Swirl Pool located on the white sands of Kandima are the most popular amongst families. Easily accommodating two adults and two kids and with sandy beachfront and shallow lagoons, your kids will get their daily dose of vitamin sea and enjoy lots of outdoors sun-splashed fun.
In need of more space? Then the Two-Bedroom Family Sky Suites are perfect for you. The suite overlooking a palm-fringed view and turquoise waters can easily accommodate eight guests. With two interconnected bedrooms, one with a king-size bed plus a sofa bed and the other with bunk beds, parents will have both their comfort and privacy.
3. A dedicated Kids Club
Your children will be in for a fun time at Kandiland – one of the biggest Kids Clubs in the Maldives with its very own water play zone. With our dedicated, multilingual team of certified child caretakers at Kandiland, your little VIPs will be in safe hands. The daily kids club programme is jam-packed with supervised hands-on activities such as marine biology workshops, kids’ yoga, and Zumba, in addition to a multitude of arts and crafts activities. Your kids will not only be entertained but will also learn and gain a variety of skills. Kandima also offers bespoke babysitting services to let the parents enjoy some well-deserved alone time.
4. A variety of dining options
Worried about limited food options? With 10 dining outlets, inclusive of two buffet restaurants serving a variety of international selections along with a special kid’s buffet corner, even the pickiest of eaters will be satisfied. Kandima also has three à la carte restaurants serving Mediterranean, perfectly grilled delicacies and modern Asian fusion, which will take you around a world of gastronomic flavours.
Kandima also offers different meal plans to cater for the needs of all, from bed and breakfast options to the all-inclusive meal plan. The special perk about our meal plan offerings for half-board and full-board is that, along with truly scrumptious meals at our buffet restaurants, soft beverages are also included in the package.
5. Family-friendly activities
With lots of uber fun family-friendly activities, there’s surely no room for boredom at Kandima. From movie nights, dolphin quests, sunset cruises, fun tubes, bubblemaker to more advanced diving courses, you will be in for some splashing fun. And that’s not all — with mocktails, cooking, dance and painting classes, you can spend some quality time with your children learning new skills. For children who need more active and adrenaline-filled activities, we have a tennis court, football pitch and beach volleyball courts all prepped for fun activities.
Relax by the poolside at the Breeze Pool Bar, which has one of the longest kid-friendly pools in the Maldives. With daily live entertainment, mouth-watering cocktails and mocktails, exciting pool games and fun pool parties, everyone will be in for a treat at Kandima.
