October 2020: Soneva, the award-winning group of luxury resorts, has paved the way for family-friendly getaways where there is always something going on to keep children and teenagers curious and entertained. This October Half Term, families can travel to Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani in the Maldives, where children will enjoy an array of activities while take advantage of all the resorts’ have to offer.
Soneva is known for its resorts' children's clubs, which are all called The Den. Every day there are countless activities to take part in, from arts and crafts, recycling, cooking classes and more. The Den teams organise experiences for children and teenagers around the resort, from joining the Marine Biologist for a guided snorkelling session to learning about the organic gardens with the resort gardeners. Tours of the Eco Centro waste management centres allow Soneva’s young guests to learn about sustainability practices and what they can do to give back to the environment and local communities.
Soneva Fushi’s Den is a sprawling playground for the imagination. Children can explore a pirate ship, splash in two swimming pools, go down the spiralling red water slide, play in the Lego and Duplo room, have fun in the dress-up and makeup area, and watch movies in the cinema. There is also a library, learning area, and music room filled with instruments, and more. During family time, parents can head over to The Den with their little ones to enjoy their very own shallow pool. The Den also has a separate lounge area dedicated to teenagers. At Soneva Jani, The Den is not just in The Gathering, it also includes the whole island itself. Creative and learning-inspired activities happen all day long, while water sports around the lagoon include kayaking, paddle-boarding, snorkelling, sailing and so much more.
Throughout the month, children and teens can get to know the island’s critters and wildlife with the new Conscious Experience: Wildlife Explorers. Learn about the animals, plants and insects that live on and around the island and learn what their names in Dhivehi are. Pool parties, arts and crafts, learning activities, water sports and pizza making classes fill the daily programme at The Den.
For Halloween, Soneva Fushi takes trick-or-treating out into the high seas and into the depths of the jungle. Everyone is encouraged to dress up in their spooky or creepy costumes to collect sweets and chocolates to enjoy later.
In October, on top of the Mother and Daughter and Father and Son Spa Packages is the Children’s Yoga and Nail Art Sessions. Here Soneva Jani’s young guests can choose to learn new yoga poses with the resident yogi, or learn how to paint bright and colourful nail art with The Den team.
