The club itself was newly built in 2015 with a vibrant circus theme and is kitted out with a playground, trampoline, splash park, stage and Munch, a gourmet kitchen with a menu designed especially for younger palates. Activity programs are individually tailored to suit a range of ages, and are split into the following categories to maximize enjoyment: Globetrotters (12 months – 2 years), Adventurers (3-4 years), Voyagers (5-7 years), and Pioneers (8-12 years).
Our nurturing Globetrotter and Adventurer programs introduce the children to the flora and fauna of the islands and include activities from coconut painting to sand prints, from hermit crab races to water fun, and from themed treasure hunts to cookie making. There’s much fun to be had both inside and out, with toys, games and books in the club to keep children entertained during the heat of the day, and a playground with a sandpit, water play area and see saws for those who still have energy to burn! Snacks are provided, and there’s a sleep room for babies and toddlers in need of a siesta. We also provide complimentary nappies (including swim nappies) during club hours. Please note there is a charge for children between 12 months and two years, whilst children three years and over can enjoy Explorers free of charge.
For the Voyagers and Pioneers, a trip to NIYAMA is a real Swallows and Amazons adventure, and there’s even time for a spot of education with visits from NIYAMA’s resident marine biologist. Our rangers will accompany them on explorations around the island and its neighbors, snorkeling on the reefs and on dolphin spotting adventures. On site activities include tennis lessons, sushi making, volley ball, stand up paddle boarding, scaling the club’s very own climbing wall and designing t shirts.
The high ratio of staff ensures that everyone is well looked after and that even the youngest members will be in safe hands, receiving all the support they need. Explorers kids club at NIYAMA is the only kids club in the Maldives to cater for children under three years of age, and all our staff undergo extensive training so you can enjoy total peace of mind during your stay.
