Even the most sullen of teenager cannot fail but melt in speechless wonder as you fly in your seaplane or speed across the sparkling lagoons dotted with tiny palm-fringed islands. Your children will thank you from the bottom of their hearts for introducing them the underwater paradise for which the Maldivian coral reefs are famed. Oh - and did we mention the touches such as free ice cream and jungle cinema complete with champagne and popcorn? This is most probably an investment holiday, but it will stay with you for years to come.
With a delightful safe culture, colonial charm and strong family spirit, Mauritian hospitality is best described as comfortably exotic – ideal for a relaxing family holiday. As well as every imaginable watersport under the sun, most resorts have excellent childrens clubs to tantalise and amuse little ones - and the not-so-little-ones too! Take your pick from any number of enterprising activities from a Kids Golf Academy to a cookery school and junior spa, some even have teenage discos for nightly entertainment. One of our favourite Mauritian resorts even has the very first baby club in the region, so with day care from 0 to 18 in Mauritius, this beautiful island is yours to enjoy at leisure. Family holiday bliss!
