Perfect forHoneymooners and families looking for a wellness escape and a sensational culinary experience. 
In the knowDon't miss SKY, the Maldives' first overwater observatory, which is home to the most powerful telescope in the region. The Maldives sits just above the equator and has vast, clear, non-polluted skies, where you can see a blanket of stars from both hemispheres. The resident storytelling Sky Guru, Shameem, will bring the night skies to life.

Hotel Overview

Sense of place

Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas has a beautiful setting on the island of Kihavah Huravalhi in the Baa Atoll Archipelago, which is part of a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Rooms at Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas

Choose from a range of villas, with beautiful indoor and outdoor living spaces, including villas with your very own private pool and others right on the beach. You can even opt for stunning overwater accommodation and watch manta rays through the sea-view floor - that's bound to be a winner for honeymooners looking for a little extra privacy and romance. 

Food & Drink

Dining here is a spectacular sensory experience that is not to be missed. Dine on sizzling steaks and freshly grilled seafood by the pool beneath the palm trees, by the beach or even underwater - you'll feel at one with the ocean while enjoying the best of Maldivian cuisine while completely submerged underwater and watching a multitude of fish, including angelfish, dart around. After enjoying the beautiful depths of the Indian Ocean, head to the rooftop bar to enjoy the views from above. 


Enjoy a full wellness programme led by a series of experts at the spa, which has six overwater treatment rooms - unwind with a blissful massage. The Anantara's Balance concept offers yoga classes, a special raw and vegan diet, Ayurvedic treatments and a host of exercise and holistic classes. 

The children’s club will also keep younger members of the family happy and in the evening, the whole family can settle down to watch a private cinema screening under the stars.

Activities at Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas

Play tennis, enjoy a range of water sports and go diving in the crystal-clear waters of the reefs of this UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. Manta rays visit between August and December, and you can snorkel and dive amongst them. There's a coral nursery run by the on-site marine biologist, so you can learn more about the marine environment and local eco projects. Alternatively, simply relax and unwind in the pool or with a memorable sunset cruise.

Foodies can learn how to make traditional dishes at the Spice Spoons coooking school, while for budding Picassos, there is an art studio offering painting classes for both adults and children, as well as cooking classes for all ages and Muay Thai boxing classes - this is popular with teenagers. 

As well as witnessing the stars in spectacular fashion when night falls, there is also a decadent cocktail bar at SKY, where you can enjoy tapas and drinks on the terrace as the sun sets over the Indian Ocean.
