If it is your job to organise the next family vacation then you have a lot of responsibility on your shoulders because not only do you have to pick a destination for yourself but you also have to pick it for your partner and the kids as well. It can be difficult trying to figure out the destination that everyone is going to like and then there is the accommodation choice to worry about as well. If you have small kids then you can’t book 2 separate rooms because you need to be able to keep an eye on them at all times. Many hotel rooms only cater for two adults and two children, so if you have more than this then you’re going to run into problems.
It would be a much better idea to look at some of the many top-class Maldives beach resorts because they are very family-friendly and they would love to be able to take care of you and your family for a week or more. These same beach resorts have villas for rent and these are more than big enough to handle large families with ease. If you have never really considered a beach resort before because you were worried about keeping the kids entertained then you should know that there are so many amenities available to you and the following are just some of them.
- Your own swimming pool – When you book one or more of their luxury villas in one of the world’s best vacation destinations, you and your family get your very own swimming pool and so this is perfect for the kids to play in as long as there is adult supervision. There are lounge chairs there for you and your partner to relax in so that you can enjoy some cold beverages while keeping an eye on the kids. The waiting staff is more than happy to bring your drinks to you as well as some food and snacks for the kids.
- A Beach to play many games – It is a beach resort after all and so there is a beach right there beside you. There is so much for children to do on the beach like building sandcastles, searching for starfish and of course doing some snorkelling and scuba diving. It is possible to rent out some kayaks with the kids as well as some paddle boards. There might even be a jet ski or two for the adults to take out the kids for a little bit of fun.
The other wonderful thing about these beach resorts is that they have top-class restaurants and a menu that caters to both adults and children. There is bound to be something on the menu that the kids love to eat and there will always be French fries to choose from and burgers and chicken nuggets. If you ask nicely, there is no reason why the chef couldn’t knock up some pancakes just for the kids.
