Dream tropical hideaway for many, surrounded by white powdery beaches and crystal clear turquoise waters a few steps from your bed, a family beach villa in Maldives is like being in paradise. The archipelago boasts some of the most beautiful Family Beach Villas in the world. The choice is wide and tempting. These family villas offer swimming pools, a minimum of 2 bedrooms, beautiful design, butlers and excellent services.
Traveling with children in Maldives can be a real pleasure, especially since many resorts offer today many activities for teenagers, excellent kids clubs, as well as beautiful family villas on the beach or overwater.
These dream villas offer luxury, tropical atmosphere, privacy and spaces for the whole family.
But which one to choose ?
Follow the guide.
Some time ago I introduced you 10 beautiful beach villas in the Maldives where we stayed.
Most of these villas, as beautiful as they are, were mostly for families for couples with 1 child sleeping on a sofa bed or an extra rolling bed. Don’t get me wrong, they are truly wonderful, we experienced them all, but privacy is not the same.
For several years now, the Maldives have become a perfect destination for a holiday with our children, young, toddlers or teenagers.
The best way to spend a Dreamy vacation with the all family is to stay in a family Villa.
The choice is large and very tempting.
These family villas offer swimming pools, a minimum of 2 bedrooms, amazing designs, countless luxury amenities, gorgeous locations and excellent services.
About Family Villas located overwater.
For safety reasons, overwater family villas are not ideal (this is only my opinion) for children and especially small ones. They are featured in some resorts but due to their location above the sea, they will be more suitable for families traveling with young teenagers.
