Have you ever dreamed about getting away from it all on an island escape in the Maldives and delving into all the thrilling experiences the destination has to offer? Make your dreams come true with the “Best of Maldives” experience package, only from Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas.

Immerse yourself in a world of enchantment as you snorkel with manta rays, indulge your sense of wonderment as you dine at SEA underwater restaurant, and then retreat into the blissful seclusion of a Beach Pool Villa or an Over Water Pool Villa. If this is your vision of the perfect dream escape, then Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas is ready to welcome you into a land of wonders.


Because every dream escape requires the perfect hideaway, the ‘Best of Maldives’ experience package 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 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 his and hers walk-in wardrobes, rain showers, outdoor showers and over-sized bathtubs big enough for two. A sunken glass-bottom bathtub in the overwater pool villas offers a mesmerising view 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.

Families looking for a paradise island adventure will find ample opportunity to share magical bonding moments in the spacious abode provided by Anantara Kihavah’s family-style villas. The Two Bedroom Family Beach Pool Villa boasts 412 sqm of space comprising of a king and twin bedroom, both of which include a day bed, en suite bathroom, and fully equipped refreshment centre and wine fridge. Stepping outside, the whole family can cool off together in the 12-metre swimming pool that runs alongside the extensive outdoor sun terrace, or exchange tales of their adventures over meals on the shaded dining sala or outdoor barbecue pit with a sunken dining lounge. Ideally suited for families with young children, the One Bedroom Family Beach Pool Villa features separate sleeping quarters suitable for kids under 12 years old. The freshly redesigned villas encapsulate a light and airy atmosphere making a cosy space for families to unwind. Both beach hideaways have a private pathway providing direct access to the powder white sand and aqua-hued waters of the Indian Ocean.


A magical dining experience immersed in the waters overlooking the best coral house reef in the Maldives is hard to beat. As part of the Best of Maldives experience, Anantara Kihavah takes you six metres beneath the waves into SEA, the resort’s award-winning underwater restaurant and wine cellar, home to over 450 labels and vintages more than 180 years old. Ideally located at the edges of Anantara Kihavah’s famed house reef, the restaurant serves up an exceptional feast for the senses as you savour a gourmet four-course lunch, whilst marvelling at the panoramic views of marine life at play amongst the vibrant corals of the reef.


Another truly spectacular ‘Best of Maldives’ experience is snorkelling with majestic manta rays. The annual migration of manta rays is truly amazing to witness as they gather en masse to feed at Hanifaru Bay during the season. Snorkel in the water for a breathtaking encounter with these gentle giants as they glide effortlessly below you with their graceful movements and amusing somersaults.

Situated within the Baa Atoll, a renowned UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Anantara Kihavah is the perfect place for underwater explorations as the best house reef in the Maldives encircles the island’s entire perimeter. Straight from the beach or from the steps of the over water villas, the colourful world of corals and spectacular undersea fauna is waiting to be explored beneath the crystal-clear waters.

Whether you choose the exclusive seclusion of a Beach Pool Villa or the aquatic indulgence of an Over Water Pool Villa, you are guaranteed to enjoy unparalleled opportunities to share magical memories with loved ones at this island sanctuary, recently hailed as the ‘Best Hotel in the Maldives, 2021’ by DestinAsian Magazine.
