Explore the ‘Wonders of Kihavah’  with the Greatest of Maldivian Adventures

Idyllically set within an enticing lagoon of turquoise and opal hues, in the heart of the Maldives lies Anantara Kihavah Maldives, a tropical island oasis where pristine natural wonder meets exquisitely crafted luxury to create a whole new world of wonderment. Harnessing the greatest Maldivian adventures, Anantara Kihavah takes you into a world of enchantment through the “Wonders of Kihavah” experience. Immerse yourself in vibrant underwater realms as you snorkel or dive over the most magical coral house reef in the Maldives or swim alongside majestic manta rays and dancing dolphins. Delight your senses at SEA, voted the world’s best underwater restaurant and wine cellar. Reach for the heavens as you stargaze in the Indian Ocean’s finest overwater observatory. And make yourself at home in the luxurious surrounds of an overwater or beach pool villa with all the modern conveniences and comforts you would expect at a five-star resort, and all the mesmerizing views you dream of on a tropical island getaway.

Thanks to its privileged location within the Baa Atoll, a renowned UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Anantara Kihavah offers the ideal base from which to explore the protected world that lies hidden beneath the calm turquoise waters of the lagoon. Built on a naturally formed island, the resort is encircled by a magnificent coral reef that is widely regarded as the best house reef in the Maldives. Easily accessible straight from the beach or from the steps of the resort’s overwater villas, the crystal-clear waters teem with a rich diversity of tropical marine life. Whether you choose to snorkel from your villa or take a dive excursion into deeper waters, an ever-changing world of gem-colored corals and spectacular undersea fauna awaits, including the not-to-miss “Golden Wall”.

From June to November, guests have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to swim with the hundreds of majestic manta rays which frequent Hanifaru Bay during the season. For stays booked outside the manta ray migration season, this activity is replaced by an enchanting dolphin cruise which offers amazing opportunities to meet with another one of the Indian Ocean’s most playful and friendly sea mammals.

Widely regarded as the world’s best underwater restaurant and wine cellar, SEA takes diners six meters beneath the waves to the very edge of Anantara Kihavah’s famed house reef. Giving you more than just an unforgettable dining experience, the restaurant serves up an exceptional feast for the senses as you savor the tempting aromas and tantalizing tastes of degustation menus whilst marveling at the panoramic views of tropical marine life at play amongst the vibrant corals of the reef.

Because every dream escape requires the perfect hideaway, the ‘Wonders of Kihavah’ experience offers a choice of accommodation options. Choose from either the exclusive seclusion of a Beach Pool Villa nestled amidst lush vegetation along a pristine stretch of the resort’s private beach, or the fantastical experience of an Over Water Pool Villa perched over the crystal-clear lagoon with panoramic ocean views. Both options boast a large infinity-edge pool, dining area, spacious wooden sundeck and lounging areas complete with swinging daybed and sun loungers. Each villa also features walk-in wardrobes, rain showers, outdoor showers and over-sized bathtubs big enough for two. Sunken glass-bottom bathtubs in the overwater pool villas offers a mesmerizing views of the sparkling ocean beneath. To further enhance the experience of luxury and pampered seclusion, all villas are serviced by a personal Villa Host 24 hours a day.
