For your luxury family holiday to the Maldives, this is the perfect choice. PLAY is a club for children aged 3 to 12 years, in which an enthusiastic team invites little ones to experience the best of the Maldives through a range of educational, cultural and outdoor activities – from locally-inspired art classes to island treasure hunts. Not forgetting teens, Studio 17 is the perfect hangout for guests aged 12-17, where more immersive activities include local dance and language classes, beach sports and excursions around the island.
The resort is home to its very own five-star PADI dive centre, offering bespoke diving programmes for all ages and abilities, led by experienced, friendly and qualified instructors. Explore the warm, clear waters and come up close to a wealth of wondrous marine wildlife – including tropical fish, whale sharks, turtles, dolphins, manta rays and much more!
This tropical island boasts 4 kilometres of some of the best beaches in the Maldives, characterised by powdered sand and overlooking the clear, fish-filled lagoon. Of course, you can unwind on a lounger enjoying your stunning surroundings or make the most of the huge choice of watersports. These include flyboarding, hoverboarding, water skiing, kayaking and more, while yoga atop the sand is also a great way to embrace the beach.
Spa & Wellness
Located in the centre of the island, the LUX* Me Spa is a sanctuary of serenity in which a personalised approach to your wellbeing awaits. As well as an extensive menu of treatments and therapies using Mamma Aroma products made using local ingredients, you can also look forward to mindfulness workshops, meditation, nutrition plans and fitness offerings in conjunction with London-based brand SP&Co.
As well as the marine life spotted while snorkelling or diving, you can board the traditional dhoni boat alongside the resident marine biologist and head out across the water in search of the largest fish on earth, the whale shark. Learn more about this fascinating species and with a resident population of them, you’re likely to spot them no matter the time of year!
