Maldives and children recommendations

We were thinking of going to Sri Lanka next summer and then stopping at The Maldives for 5/6 nights. Our children will be 11, 9 and 5. What resorts do you recommend? I would like a kids club, not necessarily for them to use, but so I know the island will be child friendly and geared up for children! Also, would like to be all inclusive.

Any thoughts will be gratefully received.

Four Seasons Kuda Huraa also has a reputation as being child friendly with a kids club.

Centara Grand and Bandos are child friendly as is Lily Beach. Also, have a look at the FAQ : Which islands are/aren;t suitable for children. There is a fairly comprehensive list there of resorts that would be suitable + a link to a blog that updates regularly with information of resorts geared towards children.

Been to both bandos and centara with our son, had an excellent stay at bandos, but centara keeps pulling us back,

A small enough island to give you and them freedom and a large enough island to keep them all entertained.

excellent size villas altho I am not sure what maximum occupancy is in the beach villas - you might need to look at a pool villa.

There are quite a few maldive islands that are child friendly, 4/ 4.5 / 5 star?

depends on how much you want to spend !!
