Families at MAIA

Activities and Personalised Attention For Every Generation

Shared experiences combined with self-discovery is defining of a family stay at the MAIA Seychelles resort. The resort’s tailored VIK (Very Important Kids) activities, menus and spa treatments allow little ones to enjoy a MAIA that is especially theirs. Bigger kids at MAIA discover more than enough device-free distractions as well as no shortage of Instagram moments. Inclusive child-minding and child-entertaining means alone-time and together-time doesn’t need to be either-or. 

The island setting is warm and welcoming, safe and horizon-broadening and definitely worth sharing - no filter needed. 

Create – kids cooking classes, sand castle building, painting, making and creating with the MAIA recreation team and local artists. Parents can join in with any creative class as much or as little as they like. It’s the perfect excuse to disappear for an adults only wine tasting and couples spa or hang around for face-painting and pizza-baking with the kids.

Explore – accompanied swimming and snorkeling lessons in the pool or canoe exploring in the bay. Whether you’re travelling with a budding jungle explorer, water-baby or animal lover, Seychelles is a one of a kind destination for exploring with the family. 

Excursions can be arranged for the entire family; exploring the bicycles-only island of La Digue, the snorkeling spots of Coco, the giant tortoises of Curieuse or the million birds of Aride. Share your snaps of tortoise petting and turtle selfies, first-time scuba experiences and family-friendly jungle treks with in-villa unlimited WiFi when you return.

Care -  the inclusive private butler service is dedicated to the entire family, including child care whenever you want. Romantic moments and family memories are created in a setting that makes it easy to enjoy both. Care for them, peace of mind for you. Food and drink menus are kid-focused with meals that are good for them but taste like a holiday treat.

Spa – your kids might not be too interested in the anti-aging properties of our exclusive Omorovicza treatments, but our choice of tasty-sounding kid treatments like ‘Chocolate Fudge’ or ‘Banana-split’ spa pampering is the kind of spa-date they’d enjoy. Little hands and toes can be spoilt with mini-mani’s and pedicures while gentle massages and too-much sun after-sun treatments are a real treat for young skin. 

Family Space On MAIA

A selection of MAIA beachfront villas are set-aside for families with small children to ensure other couples are undisturbed and that families can relax together.
