Hi Elvis

I am fairly sure that Hakuraa is an all water bungalow resort. If this is the case I am not sure that an over water bungalow would be a very safe environment for a small baby. Suggest you contact the resort direct and ask.

Hi elvis

I don't wish to sound like a school teacher but have you ever been to the Maldives? If you haven't you will have no idea of the blisteringly intense heat. I personally would not consider taking a tiny baby unless they are used to those sorts of temperature. It will be most uncomfortable (not to mention dangerous)for her and if she were ill it would be terrible for you all.

I'm sorry but in my opinion you should rethink.

I have to agree with wid, it's not a great atmosphere really for such a young baby, very hot constantly and it can be extremely humid which isn't comfortable for adults let alone a young baby. As most of the things you do there are water related i.e snorkelling, diving, canoes, catamaran etc you wouldn't be able to take advantage them and as it won't be cheap it seems a shame to miss out on so much, when she's a bit older it would be more fun for all of you.

Sorry, have to disagree with the 2 above posts. We took our son for the first time when he was 10 months old and he had a great time. (Sun Island)

Luke had a full Sun Suit, so you don't have to worry about the sun, we took all our own food and they heated up what needed heating etc. They love Children and they have seen Luke grow as he has been 3 times to this resort in 7 years!! Like any child you keep them out of the midday sun etc. Because luke was still at the crawling age, we took large towels for him to sit on and play with all his fav toys, under the palm trees!!

Go for it!!

Forgot to mention, you also have the aircon in the rooms when your baby sleeps for the afternoon nap and you can still chill out on your own little beach in front.

Now now Mauritiusfan - that's not the spirit!! I'm just jealous that Elvis' baby gets to go to the Maldives when she is only 9 months old, and the previous post said their child had been 3 times already - I'm GREEN with envy - there's me had to wait half a lifetime(and the rest!!) Very jealous. Hope your baby is good Elvis and you are able to enjoy your holiday. It would be a shame to go to paradise and have a helluva holiday!!

Yup, I didn't go to the Maldives until I was 39 (years not months) so I'm v.v. envious of Elvis' baby. Mind you I don't think I'd fancy being Elvis though. It's hard enough dealing with me and hubby plus all the dive kit let alone taking an extra few kilos of walking, talking, screaming, crying baggage... :-)

elvis. There is surely no question that polarises opinion on this forum more than that about babies. I suggest you take a look at 2 things. Firstly Rousey's excellent point about the safety of infants when common sense and decent parenting skills are on offer. Secondly where those who suggest that it's dangerous for babies are coming from. Almost all of them at some time or other have stated a desire for the Maldives to be child free. Need one say more? If you want to read a lively discussion on the subject of taking a baby to the Maldives try reading:-

This was a great thread from last year and had everything - well reasoned arguements, bitching, insults and free speech. Hugely entertaining. You know I do miss RD when he's not around. He is an intelligent, articulate chap and a worthy sparring partner - something there is a dearth of nowadays. I'm sure Kate misses him too secretly! OldDog.
