New Villas in maldives

18 September, 2023

The Maldives, with its idyllic overwater bungalows and crystal-clear lagoons, has long been synonymous with luxury and relaxation. Now, Anantara Kihavah takes this reputation to an entirely new level with the completion of a multi-million-dollar refurbishment of their Overwater Pool Villas, solidifying its place as one of the most opulent destinations in the Maldives.

Perched elegantly over a pristine lagoon, the Sunset Overwater Pool Villas at Anantara Kihavah offer guests an unmatched experience in secluded luxury. These villas, celebrated for their breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean and proximity to the Maldives’ best house reef, have undergone a transformation that enhances space, style, and comfort.

To breathe new life into these already exquisite accommodations, Anantara Kihavah enlisted the expertise of Atelier Pod, an award-winning international architecture and interior design studio. The concept driving this transformation seeks to meld the essence of a rustic wooden cabin with local materials, resulting in a design that exudes purity, simplicity, and a touch of adventure through futuristic shapes and clean lines.

New Villas the living space in maldives

Inside, the living spaces have been imbued with a fresh yet refined ambiance, featuring accent pieces sourced from the nearby Thuladoo island, smart technology, and additional home comforts. Every piece of furniture, fixture, and material has been thoughtfully selected to harmonize with the indigenous culture’s aesthetic and sustainability values.

While still retaining king-size beds and walk-in dressing rooms, the 267-square-meter hideaways now offer a more airy atmosphere with the use of lighter-colored wood. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors blur the line between inside and outside, allowing guests to wake up to the mesmerizing sight of the ocean stretching to the horizon. For a truly breathtaking experience, picture yourself immersed in a glass-bottomed soaking bathtub while colorful fish swim beneath you.

As impressive as the interiors are, the new sundecks take the Maldives experience to a whole new level. The extended deck boasts a circular seating arrangement, perfect for lounging and dining against the backdrop of dreamy Maldivian afternoons. Inspired by yacht design, this deck features seating areas gradually approaching the water’s surface, as well as extended hammocks for added comfort and unique photo opportunities. These enhancements are designed to deepen the connection with the water and introduce exciting new lagoon experiences for guests.

Sjefke Jansen, General Manager of Anantara Kihavah, emphasizes their commitment to delivering timeless luxury while staying true to Maldivian heritage and the natural surroundings. He also introduces a new category designed for families, the One Bedroom Family Overwater Pool Villa, with dedicated sleeping quarters for children, ensuring a comfortable stay for small families.

The refreshed Overwater Pool Villas at Anantara Kihavah offers the perfect haven for couples seeking romance, honeymooners, and those celebrating anniversaries. Gourmet dinners in the open dining area, leisurely moments on the outdoor swinging daybed, and outdoor rain showers that blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living are just a few of the luxuries you can enjoy. The 7-meter infinity pools, mirroring the colors of the ocean, provide a surreal swimming experience, and wooden steps from the sundeck offer direct access to the lagoon for those who prefer a dip in the open water.

Adding to the exclusive experience is a personal Villa Host, ensuring every need is met and exceeding expectations. Whether you’re on a romantic break, honeymoon, anniversary vacation, or traveling with a small family, the newly refreshed Overwater Pool Villas at Anantara Kihavah offers an unparalleled level of pampered seclusion.

From your tranquil sanctuary in the Overwater Pool Villas, you can explore the Wonders of Kihavah, including the resort’s magnificent reef, surreal underwater dining experiences, and the finest stargazing observatory in the Indian Ocean. Rates for this Maldivian paradise start from USD $1733++ per night for two persons. Indulge in the ultimate luxury escape at Anantara Kihavah, where the essence of paradise has been redefined.
