5 Reasons to Choose Kanuhura for Your Family Holiday

November 05 2019

Taking a holiday with your family is both important and special - not only does it allow you a chance to rest and rejuvenate, there’s also just something extraordinary about being able to spend quality time with your most important people away from the distractions and chaos of day-to-day living. It’s a time for you and your family to unplug, unwind and relish the finer things in life in the most exceptional settings - and there’s arguably no better place to do just that then at Kanuhura.


Situated in the heart of the Maldives, this bohemian-inspired luxury wonderland is ideal for free-spirited gypsetters of every age; it’s a tranquil haven, where your family holiday can be whatever you want it to be. Set amongst lush tropical gardens and lined by sugar-white sands that dissolve into cyan waters, this five-star luxury retreat is as bucket list-worthy as it is magnificent. 

Need a little more convincing? Here are 5 reasons to choose Kanuhura for your family holiday:

1. Family-friendly accommodation

Kanuhura appears out of the warm tropical waters of the Indian Ocean like a mirage and is the ultimate island holiday destination. One of the reasons that it’s so fantastic for travellers of every kind is because of its vast array of accommodation options. From beach bungalows and villas to pool villas, water villas and more, there’s literally something ideal for everyone - including, of course, families. 


While many of the villas can accommodate small children, for those with slightly bigger families, older children or who would simply like more space, any of the rooms from the Grand Beach Villa to the Sanctuary Pool Villa are excellent options. 

These rooms typically have two or three large bedrooms (some of which are interconnected), ample closet space, a living room, two bathrooms, in some cases, a dining area, sea views and beach access, a veranda area and where applicable, their own private outdoor areas that may include a pool (for the pool villas) - they are absolutely perfect for families. 

Another great thing about the accommodation at Kanuhura is that all the rooms come with complimentary villa bicycles which can be used to explore the island and makes for a great bonding opportunity. 

Each villa also includes the services of a private and personal villa host, there to ensure that you and your family are well looked after and have everything needed to have the holiday of your lives. The villa host can also keep an eye on your children if the need arises or a babysitter can be hired to look after the needs of your young children. At Kanuhura, every need is catered to. 

2. The resort’s kids club

One of the biggest advantages for families visiting Kanuhura is the option for kids to make the most of the exceptional Kanuhura Kids Club. With age-appropriate activities planned throughout the day for a wide array of ages and run by highly-skilled club councillors, the kids club is a great place for our little guests to spend their sun-filled days. 


The kids club at Kanuhura has been carefully created so that kids can truly have a holiday that exceeds their wildest dreams. The exact activities offered here change from day to day (and are outlined in the daily activity programme), but can include anything from pizza-making classes and pirate treasure hunts to football tournaments, art classes, sea-based excursions and a huge variety of water sports. 

The kids club is offered on a complimentary basis (with some activities incurring a small additional fee) and is a safe and enjoyable place for Kanuhura’s little guests to play, explore, make friends and create incredible moments that will stay with them forever. It has the added benefit of allowing parents a little bit of downtime so they can indulge in wonderful experiences without having to worry about their little ones. 

3. The stunning natural surrounds 

The unparalleled beauty of Kanuhura is simply mesmerising - all you need to do is look at a picture of this tropical idyll to realise that it’s quite literally the epitome of paradise. The breathtaking natural surrounds of Kanuhura make for an exceptional backdrop for an unforgettable family holiday. You and your family can meander through the tropical gardens on your bicycles, relish a special tour of the on-site orchid garden or even enjoy a seasonal menu in the heart of the Chef’s Herb Garden


The large, powder-soft beach at Kanuhura is a stunning place for some seaside games, lazing or reading, or even taking a walk with your loved ones. The gorgeous beach is fringed by a magical, lagoon that boasts its own house reef which makes for excellent snorkelling and because it’s reasonably shallow, it’s also a great place to swim with children. Sea excursions could mean encountering incredible marine life such as turtles (which actually nest on Kanuhura as well) and dolphins. What could be more enchanting than this natural beauty?

4. Water-based activities

Being a luxury resort island, it’s probably no surprise that Kanuhura offers a wealth of thrilling water-based activities for all ages. From sunset cruises, dolphin watching excursions and diving trips, to snorkelling outings, fishing trips and much, much more. 


Apart from those, Kanuhura also offers a number of complimentary non-motorised water sports and others that come at a small additional fee; you can find everything from banana boat and couch rides to jet skiing, water skiing, wakeboarding and windsurfing, to name but a few. There’s something here to thrill each member of the family. 

5. Novel experiences 

A holiday at Kanuhura is meant to be exceptional, which is why a number of unique and memorable Timeless Memories experiences are offered. From our boho beachside bar, complete with teepees (and non-alcoholic drinks for the kids) to exceptional culinary offerings, novel pairings and more. You can also opt to have a castaway picnic on one of the neighbouring deserted islands, participate in a fun sports tournament, try a new activity (sunrise yoga, perhaps?) and relish an outdoor cinema experience, under the stars and on the beach - Kanuhura offers the very best in luxury island experiences that you will remember far after your flight home.
