Winner of Best Resort in Maldives for Families Goes to…

Emerald Maldives Resort and Spa!


An occupational hazard related to travel + lifestyle journalism is finding “the best…” on a daily basis. Sadly, often “Best of…” lists come up short. And that is why when I stumble across or experience a people, person, or thing that leaves me searching for the right words, I become a kid in a candy store. Or an adult discovering a Vosges Haut-Chocolat truffles for the first time, but that’s basically the same thing, right?!

Anyways,  Maldives does not top everyone’s family travel list, but that’s about to change my friends. And that’s exactly why I want to put the Emerald Maldives Resort and Spa on your radar – and fast! The property stands out above the rest for its amazing family-friendly offerings, including an incredible kids club, unique programming for tots, incredible family villas, and best of all…its deluxe all-inclusive packages.

Welcome to Paradise

Emerald Maldives Resort and Spa is arguably the ultimate escape when it comes to luxury family travel. This multi-award-winning resort has become a steady favorite amongst family travelers and families now account for over 50% of the bookings. Emerald Maldives Resort & Spa on the secluded Raa Atoll invites guests to experience an island adventure like no other.  The hotel, a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, is home to one of the most well-equipped and extensive kids’ clubs in the Indian Ocean. The property houses ten spacious family beach villas with a pool and offers a Deluxe All-Inclusive formula that goes above and beyond any other all-inclusive resort.

The Kids Are Alright

The Emerald Maldives Resort & Spa also happens to have Maldives’ best Kids’ Club. One of the largest kids’ clubs in the Maldives, the Dolphin Club features an outdoor playground with its own pool, splash park, trampoline, winding slides, and climbing frames.  But the pièce de résistance is Maldives’ only zip-line! The zip-lining adventure takes kids from one jungle canopy to another as they soak in views of the sparkling Indian Ocean and lush greenery beneath them.

The Kids’ Club Restaurant refuels tiny travelers with nutritious meals, while budding wellness enthusiasts can unwind at the tranquil Emerald Spa, with a range of new family rituals tailored for younger skin, such as the Mom & Daughter Massage.

Why The All-Inclusive Option is Key for Families

Access to Dolphin Kids’ Club is just one element of Emerald Maldives Resort & Spa’s unique Deluxe All-Inclusive package. The option includes everything from unlimited meals, mouth-watering ice creams, soft drinks, smoothies, and cocktails (for the grown-ups,) to all non-motorized water sports, guided snorkeling, full use of the fitness center, and the expansive tennis and paddle courts. Families can dine on delectable cuisine from each continent every night of the week in four restaurants.

And we promise having to decide between Asian and European cuisine will be the hardest decision you’ll make your entire stay. This small luxury allows parents to travel without their wallets and be assured that everything – including their children – will be looked after from the moment they arrive at the resort. 


Home (Away from) Sweet Home

For the ultimate family-friendly accommodation, Emerald Maldives Resort & Spa features ten expansive Family Beach Villas with pool. No. Seriously. Your room will have your own pool! Each housing two extended bedrooms, two bathrooms – one complete with a walk-in closet for the parents, the other with child-friendly amenities, a private garden with an outdoor shower, and your very own azure private pool.
