Be forewarned that kids participating in Dhoni Kids’ Club at Anantara Dhigu Resort and Spa in the Maldives may awaken their inner pirate fantasies, or transform into a Robinson Crusoe-like character after only a few days exploring the island.
The resort’s Family Special package, valid through Jan. 9, 2013, affords families a 4-night stay to experience the wonders of the Maldives. And with a backpack filled with island “survival tools,” including a cap, travel mug, crayons and games in tow as they explore, there is no denying kids will create long-lasting memories on this Asian adventure.
Anantara Dhigu Resort and Spa’s Dhoni Kids’ Club provides supervised programs where kids have a chance to discover and delve into the local flora and fauna of the Maldives while also enjoying fun arts and crafts, indoor and outdoor sports and games (some culturally inspired), island exploration, and a chance to visit a coral nursery and reef regeneration project with the resident marine biologist.
Accommodations allow families to stay in a Sunrise Beach Villa, with the option to upgrade to a Sunset Family Villa or Two Bedroom Anantara Pool Villa. Sunset Family Villas are ideal for families with young children, with comfortable accommodation for two adults and up to three young children. Parents with tweens and teenagers might opt for the Two Bedroom Anantara Pool Villa on the island’s sunset side featuring two identical villas, each with a king-size bed and semi-open bathhouse garden.
Rates for the Sunrise Beach Villa start at $4,861. For more information on Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas, visit anantara.com.
