Spring is almost here with its smiling promise of renewal and Easter’s hope is already beginning to sparkle on the horizon. As your thoughts turn towards celebrating the coming holiday with your loved ones, consider booking a family holiday destination abroad. After the year we have all endured a special break away from the cares of the world is well-deserved. Whether you have young children looking forward to Easter egg hunts and egg tosses, or bigger kids who would love to be whisked away to one of the best family destinations for spring break, a fun family getaway to the Maldives could be just the escape you have all been longing for.


Imagine your children beaming as they run across powdery white beaches into shallow lagoons filled with living wonders, indulging in therapeutic spa treatments with your partner, and enjoying holiday traditions with an exotic twist – this is what Easter looks like at Maldives family resorts, where amid the 26 atolls are ideal family island holiday destinations. It is where you will find the freedom to embrace classic Easter traditions or make new ones of your own.


Aside from the Easter holiday, April is always a great time to visit the Maldives. The sea is at its warmest and the tides are gentle, providing the perfect opportunity to snorkel with manta rays and swim with whale sharks in crystal clear waters. April also falls within the Maldives’ dry season, ensuring you will be able to soak up the sunshine as you explore this wonderland.


Unsure where to start your family’s unforgettable adventure? Nestled amidst the turquoise waves of the Indian Ocean you will find the best luxury family resort in the Maldives, Joali. A private island retreat located on Muravandhoo island in the northern Maldives, Joali is a place for the joy of living. Where better to welcome Easter’s smiling promise of joy and new beginnings than at the heart of a tropical sanctuary blooming with possibilities? 


As one of the best tropical destinations for family vacations, Joali Maldives caters to guests of all ages. And from the first through the seventh of April, a wide array of festive activities are planned for the Easter holiday. From planting trees in celebration of nature’s renewal, beside the Manta Ray Tree House, to a treasure hunt in the lagoon and a family Easter dinner overlooking linen white sands, you will find something for everyone in your family to enjoy throughout your stay.


Your children will be spoilt for choice on how to spend each day. With hide-and-seek egg hunts, magic shows, classes on cooking up cinnamon roll Easter bunnies and more, they will never face a dull moment. While older children will delight in the diverse sports, water activities and Easter-themed crafts available.


Meanwhile, you can indulge in the more sophisticated amusements on offer as you celebrate the escape you so deserve. Slip away to a gin tasting session with Joali’s Master Sommelier or learn to cook exquisite holiday dishes with the resort’s expert chefs. Treat yourself to a pampering session at Joali Spa by ESPA. Try the 90-minute Maldivian Moments massage with its coconut oil and lava shells to elevate your joyful Easter adventure. 


Bond with the whole family as you experience the extraordinary. Come together over Easter Sunday breakfast’s delectable flavors and welcome spring as you plan your excursions. A visit to Joali provides the perfect opportunity to refresh the mind and body, as you embrace the smiling hope of brighter days to come with the ones you love most.


As you plan your Easter family holiday in the Maldives, be sure to check the safety measures of the family-friendly beach resorts on your shortlist. It is important to be aware of the protocols for each before you set your plans. The Maldives’ Ministry of Tourism has put in place measures for resorts to follow, such as requiring tourists to present a negative COVID-19 test performed no more than 96 hours prior to your arrival, but some resorts may have imposed additional protocols that you should be aware of. Besides helping you prepare for your trip, it will also give you peace of mind when booking.


However you decide to spend your dream family vacation, there could be no better place than in the Maldives. With its unspoiled natural splendor, rich culture and welcoming locals you are sure to make memories to last a lifetime. Visit this season and let your heart take flight, as you smile together to welcome hope and bring joy together with the ones you love. As they say at Joali, hope smiles.
