Le Carrousel at Cheval Blanc Paris sets the stage for children to discover the wonders of nature and for budding explorers to set off on Parisian adventures under the watchful eye of dedicated Ambassadeurs.

Cheval Blanc Randheli in Maldives: At the centre of the tropical world of Cheval Blanc Randheli in Maldives, Le Carrousel, a children's kingdom crowned with a 500 sq m house-cabin facing the beach allows little explorers to expand their imaginations. Children are welcomed by the Ambassadors of Le Carrousel in three areas dedicated, respectively, to the youngest children, to teenagers and to families. Trained and dedicated to young explorers, the Ambassadors are there to guide them through real and virtual worlds. As in the tale of “Alice in Wonderland,” everything is on a reduced scale. Walls painted with imaginary fishes add to a playroom opening onto an outdoor trampoline and revealing a net-tree, a slide and a climbing wall. On another wall, an interactive screen allows children to create their own virtual fish, which evolves among the corals and lagoons of the atoll and will be reactivated by the child each time he or she passes. There are also many workshops designed and organised especially for teenagers such as drawing walls, virtual reality helmets and creative and sports areas.
