Who says honeymooners should have all the fun? Not this family-friendly hotel in the South Male Atoll, which lays on an archipelago’s-worth of activities for kids and grown-ups.
Step off the boat at Anantara Dhigu and you’ll be handed ice-cold coconut water in its original husk. That’s just the first of many surprises at this barefoot luxury resort, a 30-minute boat ride south of the Maldives‘ capital, Malé. This is a place to disconnect from the outside world and reconnect as a family. From the eternally-bustling Dhoni kids’ club to outdoor movie nights and glass-bottom boat adventures, there’s plenty to keep everyone entertained, plus pindrop-quiet spots where children won’t disturb the peace. Here’s how to experience the best this island resort has to offer.
