The Maldives is thought of as the ultimate honeymoon destination! So that being said it’s not the first place you think Of as a family friendly let alone baby friendly destination. But yet we decided as it’s only a four hour flight away from Doha that it would be a perfect short getaway so here are our top tips and recommendations for doing the Maldives with a baby!
Choose your resort wisely
I think this is fair to say for any holiday as accommodation is key but isnperhaps amplified on a small island. Consider if there is a kids club – even if like us you have no intention in using it. Presence of a kids club is a good indictator that children are welcomed!
Speed boat or sea plane?
How does your child travel – would they be better in a boat or in a plane. Boat transfers probably indicate that the resort is closer to Male which you may want the security of when travelling with little ones!
Consider medical cover
No one wants to have plan for illness on a holiday but it happens especially with kids. Consider how far away medical facilities are? Are they on your island?
Everybody knows that The Maldives can be expensive so consider going all inclusive. It means little ones will have plenty of water to drink.
Types of residence
Though an overwater villa sounds idyllic when you have little ones running around may not be the most practical – consider what types of rooms are available for instance beach view to make for a more relaxed trip for parents!
Overall we thought that the Maldives with a baby is a brilliant vacation idea. And I know lots of other families agree. We are so glad that we didn’t think it was off limits for anyone but honeymooners and couples.
