An Island Playground – Extended by Popular Demand

June 29, 2013 Spa & Wellness No Comments Email Email

Soneva Fushi has always welcomed families with open arms seeking to create environments that are natural playgrounds for adults and children alike to adventure and explore by barefoot or bicycle.

FIS-250x250Whether it be swimming, snorkelling or diving in search of turtles, angelfish or manta rays. Discovering deserted islands aboard a kayak or traditional Dhoni. Stargazing from the Observatory or enjoying a family-friendly film in our outdoor Cinema Paradiso, lifelong family memories are made here.  This summer Soneva Fushi is excited to be hosting four dedicated 7-day children’s camp from 25th June to 2nd July, 9th – 16th July 2013 and due to recent demand have extended the programme with an additional two weeks in August from the 1-8th and the 20th-26th.

The weeklong programme covers a carefully thought-out range of topics and experiences to entertain and educate our little guests, ensuring a truly unique summer holiday. We have called this week ‘An island Programme’ as we want our island to become exactly that, a safe environment where children are free to roam, run and explore letting their minds and imagination wander as freely as their barefeet. A playground with only natural boundaries bursting with wildlife and jungly corners to discover, experiences to be enjoyed and fun memories to remember forever.

Each day covers a separate theme categorised as Back to Nature, Culture, Sea and Sky, Waste to Wealth, Life by the Sea, Wellness and So What Now? Activities include tours of the organic herb and vegetable gardens, a trip to neighbouring Eydafushi island to learn how to write your name in Dhivehi, Maldivian cooking classes, guided snorkelling lessons, beach clean ups, stargazing lessons, Eco arts and crafts, swimming with Manta Rays, yoga lessons, massages, movie nights at Cinema Paradiso … the list goes on.
