Maldives with child - Olhuveli?

We are planning to go the Maldives this year (we have been before).
Looking for a child friendly resort (kids pool, ideally kids club and/or babysitting) and good house reef (this is crucial as we love snorkelling).

Any recommendations? I have looked at Olhuveli which looks very nice and seems to have a good house reef.

Lily beach ticks all the boxes.

I'll second Lily Beach. The children we saw there were very well looked after and seemed to do lots of activities. Fabulous adult infinity pool. Their first class all inclusive includes Taittinger champagne.

Lily Beach looks great. torn between Lily Beach and Kuramathi.

Anyone been to Kuramathi?

I went to Kuramathi last year , kids club looked good and a fair few kids were there too. Great food options , definitely go all inclusive.

I went to Olhuveli a few years back - the reef was amazing, but the kids facilities were pretty minimal. In fact I don't even remember there being any kids there! I think other islands are better set up for children.

desperatehousewife101 - we would book all inclusive as that makes more sense with a child. Did you do any snorkelling? how did you find the service?
the kids club on Kuramathi looks nice (even has its own fb page).

Look at the kuramathi Instagram stories too for the kids club activities.
AI was delightful in every way. I am planning on going back for our big birthdays.

Service exceptional , snorkelling great too. Saw 2 turtles.

I recommend also Lily Beach. It's beautiful and for sure your kids will have fun because there are a lot of activities for them.
