Best known as a tropical paradise for honeymooners seeking romance, the Maldives is quickly rising to the top of kid-friendly vacation destination lists. The lukewarm, crystal-clear water, gentle enough for young swimmers, teems with colorful fish. Tear yourself away from the beach to experience a seaplane ride for a bird’s-eye view of this stunning locale, and make time for a trip to the Marine Discovery Center to learn even more about the wildlife here. Our favorite kid-friendly properties in the Maldives engage children in their surroundings through nature walks, age-appropriate welcome gifts and friendly staff. Be sure to check age requirements if you envision staying in an over-the-water bungalow — many do not allow children.

Our Happy Travelers
"Everything was great on the trip! Thanks so much for all of your help in planning everything and organizing the tours. All of the guides were great! Extremely knowledgeable, friendly and did a great job with the kids."

–Tomeny Family Trip

"We have only good things to say about our entire trip and the planning process. You are a dream to work with! I especially appreciated how you narrowed down my options for each decision, so I wouldn't be overwhelmed. I haven't worked with a travel agent before, but you really surpassed my expectations. We will call you first the next time we travel!"

–Caldeira Family Trip

"The hotel you found and booked for us could be the nicest hotel we have ever stayed... and we have stayed at some really, really nice 5 star hotels."

–Wadsworth Family Trip

“I have been blown away with the services you provide. I first contacted Barbara last summer on a recommendation to Ciao Bambino from a friend. I wasn't sure what to expect as I had not used this type of service before. We were beyond impressed with everything Barbara set up for our family.”

–Detter Family Trip

"I couldn't be happier with my experience. Just talking with Cary gave me a baseline foundation to build on - one that I didn't have time to get from reading a guidebook and distilling it. I am not sure how I would have gotten this trip together without her help. I will definitely get in touch before our next trip!"
