At Anantara the Dhoni Kids Club awakens pirate fantasies in a dhoni (traditional Maldivian sailboat) club house with an abundance of enriching activities for guests of eleven and under to explore the exuberant personality of the Maldives. Here daily supervised programmes offer kids fun filled opportunities to discover the cluster of islands’ friendly wildlife inhabitants, both above and below the dazzling Indian Ocean.
A tailor made, fun filled educational excursion affords younger guests an exciting adventure of discovery to experience and interact with essential coral reef conservation and regeneration projects. A visit to the coral nursery at Anantara Dhigu sees the resident Marine Biologist sharing valuable information for developing minds when he explains how coral grows. Topics like marine life in the surrounding waters are also covered, after which theory turns into reality when the children paddle across the shallow lagoon in glass bottom kayaks to look at the astounding array of tropical fish, crustaceans and bizarre-looking molluscs below. Closer to the lagoon’s edge they paddle over the newly created coral reef that joins two existing reefs, with more than 450 different coral species.
