Can you tell us about your overall experience staying at Constance Halaveli Maldives with your family?

We had a 5-star experience at the Constance Halaveli! Every one of our needs was taken care of perfectly. The ocean lagoon was out of a dream and the snorkeling was incredible! This was a perfect place for a family vacation and both us as parents + our kids had such an enjoyable time.

How were the accommodation and amenities provided for families?
"The room was truly out of a dream! It felt so spacious and the room had every amenities you could need. I loved taking daily baths while reading and looking out at the stunning ocean view. By far the best part of the room was the outdoor deck and swimming pool. We spent endless hours roasting between swimming in the pool and snorkeling straight off the deck. We would sit and watch sharks, stingrays, and fish swim directly under our deck. We had our 4-year-old sleeping in the pullout bed and it was so comfortable and fit in the room great. I have nothing but great things to say about the room!"

Did your children enjoy the activities and facilities provided for them at the hotel?
"Our children had the time of their lives at the Constance Halaveli! I was a little bit worried that there wouldn’t be much for them to do here, but I was definitely wrong. The kids club was absolutely incredible and by far the best of any resort we have been to! The staff working at the kids club were so playful, attentive, and well-trained. They planned very creative activities like bracelet making, tennis lessons, tie-dye t-shirts, and homemade ice cream making. We also snorkeled in the house reef and saw so many fish and live coral! Our kids are only 4 & 2 so I thought they would not be able to do it, but they thoroughly enjoyed it. They also really loved breakfast, lunch, and dinner and had such a wide variety to choose from."

How was the dining experience for your family?
"Were there any specific dietary requirements that were catered to? We all had so many phenomenal meals!

Breakfast: There was such a wide variety every morning and I always woke up excited to eat! They had a hot bar with fresh pancakes, waffles, french toast and crepes. They also had an egg station custom-made to order egg dishes. I really enjoyed the fresh juices every morning, especially the collagen berry mix.

Lunch: Again, such an incredible selection! They had all types of cuisines available including Maldivian, western and Japanese. I also loved the grill station, chicken, tuna and steak.

Dinner: We had some incredible meals on this trip! We had the opportunity to eat at all three restaurants and loved each of them for different reasons. Jing was a stunning restaurant located in a bungalow over the ocean. We ordered steak with truffle risotto and literally savored every last bite! The chocolate dessert was incredible as well. Meeru was a beachfront restaurant with a stunning view. We ate as we watched a vibrant sunset over the ocean, which was definitely a highlight of the trip. I ordered chicken kebabs and my husband ordered chimichurri steak. Both were delicious. Our kids really enjoyed their meal from the vast kids menu!"

How did you find the service and hospitality provided by the hotel staff?
"5/5! Every single need we had was taken care of. We were able to request buggies to take us from our bungalow to wherever we needed to go and it saved us so much time walking with the kids! They also arrived quickly and were so willing to take us where we needed to go. The housekeeping came twice a day and the room also looked spectacular. We were able to call reception with any request or message them on Whatsapp and we always got the answer we needed. We had to take our 2-year-old to the medic for a cut on his foot and the treatment was great! We healed up quickly and were able to enjoy the rest of the trip. My husband and I joked that the staff knew what you needed before you ever asked!"

Were there any particular experiences or activities you enjoyed as a family during your stay?
"We loved spending family time swimming in the main pool as well as the pool at our bungalow. The ocean was so calm and perfect for swimming and snorkeling. We played tennis and did a guided snorkel which was both highlights!"

What kind of measures did the hotel take to ensure the safety of your family during your stay?
There was a clinic on site, which was stocked with a wide variety of medicine. Each room was supplied with life jackets and everything was properly sanitised.

Can you tell us about any memorable experiences or moments during your stay at Constance Halaveli Maldives?
"Watching the stingrays/ sharks from the dock, snorkeling in the lagoon, our toddler tennis lessons (included with kids clubs), various kids club activities, kayaking in the channel, walking around the whole island."

How was the location and accessibility of the hotel for your family's needs?
"The location was amazing! We truly felt so secluded and the nature was so vibrant."

Would you recommend Constance Halaveli Maldives to other families looking for a vacation spot?
"I would 100% recommend the Constance Halaveli Maldives to any family! We truly had a family vacation that we will remember for the rest of our lives! Everyone in the family enjoyed every minute of it."

What was your #MyConstanceMoment?
"Our Constance Moment was when the whole family went snorkeling for the first time! It was truly incredible to walk straight out from our bungalow and see a school of fish, live coral and even a reef shark. It was one of our greatest family memories ever!"
