Anantara Kihavah

Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas

"A showstopper atoll where reality eclipses fantasy"

Within a month of its opening, this resort attracted repeat guests. You have to pinch yourself when you see the design symmetry of infinity pools, wooden pavilions and platforms. Like Botticelli’s Venus, Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas seems to step, perfectly formed, from the endlessly still sea. Every delicious shade of blue builds on the illusion of being barely out the sea and yet connected to the heavens. This resort is ridiculous perfection.

Location:Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas is located in the Baa Atoll, 125 km north of Malé reached by a 35-minute scenic seaplane journey taking you to the doorstep of Hanifaru Bay, a UNESCO marine biosphere reserve.
Perfect for:Romantic escapes
Why we love it:This resort epitomises true luxury. The underwater restaurant experience is out of this world. We also love stargazing with the most powerful telescope in the Indian Ocean, with SKY.

This palm-encrusted island has an undisturbed appearance with the resort hidden from view by the natural vegetation. There are canopied paths that criss-cross the island and striking palms that overarch the beachfront villas. There are no motorised water sports to disturb the peace, the reefs or the rhythms of aquatic wildlife.

After a foot massage in your villa (that’s check in done) you butler quietly takes over. It is easy never to set foot outside the villa again with spectacular guestrooms that are a divine mix of modernity and tradition. Wide outdoor terraces with swinging daybeds or hammocks make them masterpieces of comfort. In the beach villas sunken garden tubs-for-two come with built-in wine coolers and overwater villas cheekily boast glass-bottomed bathtubs.

Migrate from your villa to the pool area and butlers will busy themselves plying you with fruit, liquid refreshments and cold towels whilst you just ease back on retro loungers or on huge daybeds. On the far tip of the island and surrounded turquoise waters, is the stilted-up Sea.Fire.Salt.Sky complex. Sip martinis in Sky until your cocktail matches the colour of sunset; take teppenyaki at Fire; savour seafood at Salt or step down into glassy, underwater, gourmet elegance at Sea, where vast numbers of bottles are cellared.

The newest addition is the observatory at Sky bar, housing the most powerful telescope in the Indian Ocean. Here you  can enjoy extraordinary stargazing experiences.    

Fantasies of paradise found include a six-suite overwater spa and the Maldives longest pool. So, swim off or try to massage away the excesses, time permitting.


Beach Villas

The 79 beach villas are scattered in tropical gardens and are just steps from the beach. Stunning living areas are arranged around courtyards with fountains, while huge outdoor garden-bathrooms offer a taste of the tropics.

The Spa Retreat & Spa Water Villas
