For an award-winning family resort: Lux* South Ari Atoll
The lowdown: See your littles ones’ eyes light up, as they paddle in shimmering shallow lagoons surrounded by colourful fish. From the bean bag hangouts on the sugar sand beaches, to the several tantalising restaurants and bars, this resort will drop everyone’s jaw. There is the PLAY kids club for youngsters ages 3 – 12, where they can play high-energy sports, explore nature, search for gold on a treasure hunt and play outdoors. The Studio 17 teens club (for ages 12 – 17) offers adventurous trips about the island, local language and dance classes, as well as a variety of beach sport activities.
Let off steam: Spend time together and skim across the ocean on kayaks and pedal boats. If you fancy lounging about on the beach, watch the kids whizz around on rubber rings and banana boat rides – they’ll be grinning all day.
Restore energy levels: Head to the open kitchen restaurant Allegria for a taste of Italian. Choose from delicious pasta or gnocchi dishes, freshly-caught seafood and a wow-worthy à la carte menu that will leave your taste buds tingling. Kids can order tasty pizzas if they aren’t in the mood for trying something new.
Savour a blend of frolicking family time and chill out ‘you’ time in a utopian destination.
