Soneva – The family-friendly Maldivian holiday where the children come first
The Maldives has always been known as a romantic destination for couples, weddings and honeymooners. But surely anyone would want their children to experience the magic that the Maldives has to offer.
At Soneva Fushi, our youngests guests have free reign of the Den, our children’s club that spans approximately 1,300 sqm. Here children aged 4 years old and above can splash in two swimming pools, one of which as a spiralling red water slide, and explore a pirate ship. Inside they will find a Lego room, dress-up room, a music room where they can learn a new instrument, a cinema room, library, arts and crafts space, and a kitchen where they can take cooking and mocktail making classes.
The Den has family-friendly spaces where parents can spend quality time with their children. There is a space specially made for teenagers, as well as a weekly children’s sandbank mocktail party. Family activities around the resort include our al fresco Cinema Paradiso, watch movie screenings beneath the starry Maldivian sky, you can hire it out for the ultimate private viewing experience. Cruise out into deeper waters to see pods of dolphins frolicking in the waves along the side of the boat. Explore the night skies, learn the constellations and see deep space objects with our 3D Astronomy technology.
Those at Soneva Jani have the whole island to explore, with each villa coming with its very own water slide right into the turquoise lagoon. The Den here acts more like a base camp where toys, games and more are kept. The activities that our younger Soneva guests can enjoy include making sandcastles on the beach, learning about the natural environment, arts and crafts, yoga, water sports, scavenger hunts and Maldivian snack making.
Take the family out for a guided snorkelling trip with our resident Marine Biologist, get to know the colourful fish and the coral species in our House Reef. Watch a film at the overwater Cinema Paradiso, visit our organic vegetable, fruit and herb gardens and learn how and why Soneva grows as much of its own produce as possible. Take a tour of the Eco Centro and see our programmes and initiatives that help keep the Maldives and our planet as green as possible.
Holidaying in the Maldives with Soneva is a fun family affair, with activities and experiences for children of all ages, from tiny tots to those adults that are still children at heart. Whether the children love all things nature, prefer arts and crafts, want to learn a new cuisine or a few phrases in Dhivehi, there is something for everyone at Soneva.Back to blog
