One&Only Reethi Rah Introduces Kids Buddy Programme

One&Only Reethi Rah, the ultra-luxury, all-villa resort set on one of the largest private islands in The Maldives, has long been renowned as destination for families to share unforgettable experiences in an incredibly secluded setting. Expanding upon the resort’s much-loved KidsOnly children’s club, One&Only Reethi Rah has introduced a new ‘Kids Buddy’ programme for children aged 6 months to 12 years,providing one-on-one supervision and tailored activities bespoke to each child’s abilities, interests and personality.

The resort offers families the space to share precious moments together, while parents have the opportunity to enjoy quality time while their little ones are entertained with an array of interactive activities and personalised exploration in a vibrant playground of adventure. Each Kids Buddy is trained and qualified by Worldwide Kids, a global childcare consultancy with a wealth of knowledge and accreditation in training childcare staff. Kids Buddies are fluent in Russian, Ukrainian and English.

The Kids Buddy programme is designed to focus on the individual characteristics of every child, with a range of activities and experiences especially designed for active, cognitive and creative minds. Children are given the freedom to explore their surrounding environment and encouraged to discover new experiences and skills while under the expert care and supervision of their Kids Buddy. On arrival to the island, families will meet their assigned Kids Buddy who will prepare a personalised schedule for their little one during their stay, incorporating a variety of activities to stimulate innovation, imagination and discovery.

Bespoke activities supervised by a dedicated Kids Buddy include crafts celebrating the destination, beach scavenger hunt, beach mini golf, bracelet and accessories making and more. Families will feel connected during their vacation, yet at the same time parents are able to relax having the knowledge that their children will receive exceptional care, while being entertained in an engaging environment. Activities and experiences are not just limited to the KidsOnly area; children can embrace the island’s natural setting and extensive amenities under the careful supervision of their assigned Buddy.

“The introduction of our Kids Buddy programme enhances the experience for families, offering tailored care in a creative and learning environment for our young VIPs. It gives parents the peace of mind to know that their child is being looked after by a devoted Buddy who will personalise their adventures on our island playground,” said Jan. B. Tibaldi, General Manager, One&Only Reethi Rah.

The Kids Buddy service is available for a minimum of 5 consecutive days. It can be booked prior to arrival or during the guest’s stay and is priced at $1,000 per child, plus applicable taxes; includeing 8 hours supervision by a dedicated Kids Buddy expert per day and an itinerary of activities tailored to every child. As part of the package, children will receive a special gift on arrival, a 20% reduction on all KidsOnly merchandise and complimentary access to all chargeable activities at KidsOnly.
