First timer - help in choosing resort

Hi,

I am planning a last minute trip to Maldives in a couple of weeks time ( 20th onwards ). Please can you help choose a resort. I am after following;

- room on water

- excellent food

- all inclusive

- good kids club for my 4 year old

- water sports

- clean beach

- not overcrowded resort

If anyone can also recommend a good uk Maldives specialist tour operator that would be helpful

Can someone suggest something meeting this? Thanks for all your help

A lot of islands wont allie children that young in water villas for safety reasons

Centara grand would be a notable exception with great kids facilities

We always book through Jai from Travel Lab. We shop around just in case but we haven't found an agent to beat him on price yet.

Depends on your island as the agents all carry different selections. We tried all the usual suspects this year including travel lab, travel bag, travel designers, destinology but Tropical Sky were the cheapest for the resort we booked
