Best things to do

Do as much or as little as you like on holidays in the Maldives. There are plenty of things to do, from exhilarating water sports to pampering spa treatments. The whole family will also welcome those indoor activities that provide a retreat from the midday sun.

The outstanding children’s facilities in the Maldives make family holidays easy and enjoyable. Small children will love the kids club at Kanuhura, whilst teenagers will enjoy the cutting edge gaming at Niyama. Many of our resorts have fully-equipped gym facilities and state-of-the-art libraries with internet access. The Four Seasons Resort at Kuda Huraa has a surf school, whilst Kuredu is ideal for water sports enthusiasts or golfers, with its 6-hole par 3 course.
