Water sports including windsurfing, water skiing, pedal boats, fun tube rides and catamaran trips. A selection of non-motorised water sports are free.
The snorkelling and diving is considered to be one of the very best in the region, seemingly attracting several species of fish found only in this part of the Maldives.
Chic Check – The range of facilities, and the variety of accommodation options, plus fantastic extra value make Lux*Maldives/Diva highly recommended. It even has regular low key evening entertainment, unusual in the Maldives. Bicycles are available and are an ideal way to explore the rather tropical island with its numerous palm and coconut trees and sand pathways. It has a relaxed easy going style, and some of the widest smiles in the Maldives.
Lux*Maldives (Diva) is part of the Lux (formerly know as Naiade) Group of hotels, with other properties in Mauritius.
Although many clients will be attracted by the direct BA flight to Male, the option of travelling via Dubai on Emirates might be worth considering, maybe even stopping over for a few days. Both our featured hotels in Dubai are very family friendly. Another alternative, appealing to adults and older children in particular would be the combination with Sri Lanka, taking in a tour on the first week before continuing to the Maldives.
