Full accommodation information

An unforgettable resort where you can snorkel some of the Indian Ocean’s most cherished reefs within a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.

Outstanding features of the hotel include its spectacular underwater restaurant, luxurious private villas with stunning beach or ocean views and of course the signature treatments at the overwater spa. As if this all wasn’t paradise enough, the journey to the island is an experience in itself; a memorable 30-minute seaplane flight over coral islands and turquoise waters.

Experience the world’s first underwater wine cellar and a unique dining room completely surrounded by the majesty of the sea. Voted World’s Best Underwater Restaurant for four consecutive years, SEA offers a gourmet dining experience like no other and provides panoramic views of passing fish, turtles, and even sharks. Looking it the skies, the first and only observatory in the Maldives perches on the roof of the Sky Bar offering crystal clear 360° views of the wondrous night sky.

If you fancy some quiet time basking by the pool of your private villa, you’ll be able to do so safe in the knowledge that the kids are having a whale of a time at the kids’ club: Thiththi Boli, which means ‘beautiful shells’. And if a night ‘à deux’ is on the cards, a babysitter can be arranged for children over three months. Time together is best enjoyed under the stars with a private movie screening watching a film of your choice with popcorn and chocolate-dipped strawberries.

But of course, if you’re in the Maldives, the focus of your stay will be those glorious azure waters, where at Anantara Kihavah you’ll be spoilt for choice given its offerings. Highlights include the Coral Adoption Programme to give guests a better understanding of the delicate ecosystem around them and the Anantara Dive Centre where you can enrol in a PADI certification course.

The 80 roomy villas range in size and facilities to suit the needs of your party; with intimate overwater spaces perfect for two, up to four-bedroom villas with space for the whole family. All feature a private pool and those all-important luxurious details, such as espresso machines and complimentary Wifi.

Anantara Kihavah has a programme of night experience allowing you to witness the underwater world and night sky using state of the art technology and expert guides, including a private yacht charter on Ocean Whisperer with guided night dives.

With the resort at the heart of the Baa Atoll archipelago, Anantara Kihavah never takes its privileged position for granted. To coincide with their beliefs, many sustainable initiatives have been put in place to ensure the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve remains in perfect condition for years to come. Guests have the option to donate a dollar per night during their stay to go towards the protection of marine and coastal environments – and you can even sign up for an Elements Dive and Watersports Centre programme to join the reef cleaning efforts. In addition, there are several lush gardens such as the Nala Orchid Garden and Organic Garden that contribute to the island’s green space.
