Pampered Kids Prepare For Eco Education

A Maldives Hotel is encouraging kids to ‘switch off’ as they introduce a programme of eco education for children of all ages, designed to make them more environmentally aware.

Little Griffin’s has been introduced by JW Marriott Maldives Resort & Spa and features a 13m pirate’s ship, kid’s sleeping area, and a servery.

However, there are also multi-lingual instructors and youngsters can partake in a series of educational activities including informative beach walks where they are taught how delicate the ocean environment is, the importance of keeping the beach clean and the impacts of plastic pollution on marine life.

Instructors will also take children on an island exploration where they are given an insight into the different animal and plant species on the island, designed to encourage a love for wildlife.

Active experiences at the Little Griffin’s Kid’s Club include a Quidditch and Gaga Ball tournament inspired by Harry Potter, a high activity team sport combining the skills of dodging, striking, running, and jumping.

Designed to spark creativity in children, Little Griffin’s also holds arts and crafts classes, and family pizza making and cupcake decorating for both children and their parents. After a day of activities, children can relax at one of the Little Griffin’s outdoor movie nights.

Wellness is not just limited to adults at JW Marriott Maldives Resort & Spa. The Spa by JW offers treatments specifically tailored for children including facial and head massages, mini manicures and mini pedicures, whilst the Little Griffin’s Kid’s Club offers beach yoga.

Nightly rates at JW Marriott Maldives Resort & Spa for a Duplex Beach Pool Villa accommodating two adults and three children start from $1,640 (£1,260 approx.) on a B&B basis.
