For any parent traveling with children there is always the question of how to keep the little ones entertained, but on the magical shores of JW Marriott Maldives Resort & Spa on Vagaru Island, one doesn’t need to think twice. There are multiple reasons why the resort remains one of the most popular family destinations in the region, and as a highlight kids will surely love their escape within an escape at the Family by JW Little Griffins Kids Club.

One of the largest kids’ clubs in the Maldives

Boasting one of the largest kids’ clubs in the Maldives, the Family by JW Little Griffins Kids Club at the resort offers children 100 activities ensuring endless fun whilst also allowing them to participate in enriching and educational experiences, with the supervision of an experienced kids club team. Inspired by a pirate’s shipwreck on the beach, the architecture of the space is designed as a puzzle of beach huts while the interior is designed as a ‘sea meets the jungle’ with its different landscapes, that is sure to spark kids’ interest and discovery in every room.

The Kids Club has its own children’s swimming pool and all amenities are child-sized to create a mini fantasy world for the little adventurers. From arts and crafts to pizza making, island exploration, kids beach yoga, and mini beach Olympics, all activities at the Family by JW Little Griffins Kids Club promote their three pillars of ‘activeness, culinary and creativity’ that will keep kids stimulated, learning and having fun allowing parents to enjoy some down time.

Kids under 12 eat free

Offering exceptional value, little guests under 12 get to eat for free, with fully child-friendly curated menus to offer the mini connoisseurs the chance to feast on the most fun and healthy foods. With cuisines hailing from far and wide, there is something for every palate.

The creative menus at the resort’s outlets offer a range of dishes from around the world, with “grown up” foods for discerning little guests including Asian inspired teppanyaki reef fish, Italian style pizza, camembert croquette and grilled fish fillet. For those with a sweet tooth, tasty treats include matcha creme brûlée, a chocolate trio and mouthwatering lemon meringue pie. In addition to kids’ menus being available in the restaurants, they can also eat at the kids’ club so they don’t miss a moment at their favorite hangout with their new friends for life.

Child friendly accommodation

Every little guest at JW Marriott Maldives Resort & Spa is made to feel like a VIP with their own special welcome pack including tasty goodies, entertainment and toys, and a mini tent setup in the villa so they can camp out like true explorers in their own luxurious bedrooms.

The Duplex Beach Pool Villas – where the sand is just steps away and a private pool awaits – are ideal for families with kids, allowing plenty of cozy communal spaces for quality family time while being spacious enough to cultivate quiet time when needed.

For a seamless stay for the whole family, guests can benefit from the “Savor the Endless” all-inclusive package, which offers all the luxuries of an island escape, without a worry in the world.  For stays longer than three nights, guests will receive savings of up to 20% and daily breakfast, lunch and dinner across the resort’s five restaurants and three full-service bars.
