SANTARINA’S WISHING COUNTER

Kuda Velaa Kids’ Club
22 & 23 December

4:00 – 5:30 pm

Santa might be magical, but he isn’t a mind-reader, so he relies on the help of his trusted sidekick, Santarina, to find out what Little Landies would most like to find in their stockings. Visit her in Kids’ Club to submit your wishes!

Parents – our remote location presents Santa and Santarina with some formidable logistical challenges. Some of your children’s wishes that Santa finds particularly difficult to arrange will be passed to you for fulfillment. Please give Santarina any personal gifts for your child, marked with their name; she will gladly pass them to Santa to surprise your child at the Kids’ Christmas Party on 25 December.

AGE 8? YOU’RE OLD ENOUGH FOR UNDERWATER ACROBATICS …

KIDS’ CLUB

Open daily from 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

The life of little Entertainers-in-Training is never dull! The Big Top crew have many names for these fearless, adventure-seeking youngsters, but when they are island side, it is Kuda Velaa (‘little turtles’).  From dawn to dusk, they love to frolic in the pool, whizz down the water slide, play on their wooden pirate adventure ship, climb through the treetops and engage in exciting island-wide acrobatics of their very own – all at Kids’ Club! Grab a ‘Passport to Adventure’ booklet (ages 4 – 8) or ‘Mission: Landaa Giraavaru’ (ages 8+) and embark on your own skill-gathering search!

ADULT TIME

We know you adore your Little Landies, but it’s your vacation too! This festive season, in addition to our daily Kids’ Club program, we’re extending the festive support to daily lunch buffets (12:00 – 2:00 pm, 20 December to 2 January). In addition, babysitters can be booked 24 hours in advance, either for children under 4 who wish to attend Kids’ Club, for evening or daytime sessions outside of Kids’ Club, or should you wish to escape for an early morning dive or yoga class. We can even arrange Maldivian nannies to help support your family during your stay.

Please contact us to discuss your personal needs or to put a family-care plan in place prior to your visit.
