Anantara Kihavah

Discover Anantara Kihavah

In the Baa Atoll, 35 minutes by seaplane from Male airport, the all-villa Anantara Kihavah offers a wide selection of luxurious, spacious accommodation built in traditional style with timber and thatch. This secluded, exclusive resort offers memorable holiday experiences with award-winning dining and, being located in a UNESCO Biosphere reserve, ensures discovery of the thriving marine life in the surrounding house reef.

One of the few luxury island resorts where the pristine white sand beach surrounds the entire island, Anantara Kihavah offers just 89 private pool villas, but with no less than 9 different types. The island is suited for couples as well as families with a wide choice of activities for all tastes and ages - from snorkelling or diving with a marine biologist to sunset cruises and excursions to nearby islands. Other unique facilities include an underwater restaurant and Maldives' first over-water observatory - 'sky', the most powerful telescope in the region.
