1. The Den in The Maldives
Perched on a paradise atoll, the Soneva Fushi kids club is a wonderland for kids aged 4 and up. They love to lose themselves in the pirate ship, learn to cook, make alcohol-free cocktails or play a musical instrument, read in the library, disguise themselves and their faces, lose all track of time in the Lego and Duplo room, or marvel at the starry sky with an astronomer! With one pool for the youngest, and another for the older kids, the facilities here are suitable for all ages. But what do the kids who come here love best? Setting sail to watch the dolphins aboard a beautiful traditional sailing boat.
The Den – 10:30 am to 5:00 pm / + some evenings
2. The Beach Buddy Club in The Seychelles
North Island: a private island where nature remains unspoiled and wild, with 11 villas perfectly integrated into the natural world and a wonderful vacation program for families. At the Beach Buddy Club, kids can search for buried pirate treasure, learn to dive on a Bubblemaker course led by the island’s dive master, watch films on the sand in the evening, cook pizzas or set off with their leaders to meet the giant tortoises of Aldabra, the oldest of which could be anything up to 200 years old. Here, everything is designed for group fun, so with the Beach Buddy program, kids under 17 stay free, and on arrival receive a small backpack containing a sun hat, a bottle of water, a bat and ball, a bucket and spade, a frisbee and a T-shirt to get the vacation off to a great start with a big smile.
