Family-friendly places to stay in the Maldives

An ever-growing array of family-friendly resorts has helped dispel the Maldives' reputation as a destination solely for honeymooners and other couples. Most are five-star and many are super-luxurious, although a number of places have opened that offer 'affordable luxury'.

Most Maldives resorts are either all-inclusive or feature an all-inclusive option, which can help keep a lid on spending. You might also want to ask us about Maldives resorts that include water sports in your package; paying for activities separately will add substantially to your ultimate spend.

If you are watching your budget, go in March or April, towards the end of the busiest season.
