Best for family holidays or breaks with older kids by virtue of the thrilling speedboat transfer and great watersports, the luxury private-island resort of Kurumba in the Maldives boasts fantastic staff who make all guests feel like royalty. Though popular for honeymoons and romantic breaks, Kurumba appeals to those who enjoy quieter family holidays – snorkelling, scuba-diving, glassbottom boat and dolphin-watching trips and seaplane picnics are the highlights for kids. Some guests grumble about aircraft and boat noise, but others find the short transfer time a bonus. Beachfront rooms are the most alluring.
