Located in the impressive Baa Atoll with a reputation as one of the best in the Maldives for marine life, Anantara Kihavah is picture perfect in every way, with silky white sandy beaches, an iridescently blue lagoon and an amazing house reef. The island itself is mid-sized so large enough to have your own private space (and bikes to ride) but not too large that you lose that intimate island feel. The service at Anantara Kihavah is exceptional and your personal Villa Host will look after your every need, from dinner reservations to fresh towels or snorkelling advice. This is fantastic resort for those who enjoy a variety of dining options, with a total of six restaurants including a amazing underwater restaurant.


TRANSFER: 35 minute Seaplane

One of the best places in the Maldives to watch the beautiful Maldivian sunset is Anantara's over-water sunset bar, Sky. Our absolute favourite are the double seater lounges on the upper deck which have the best sunset view on the island.




Anantara's luxurious villas and residences are beautifully decorated in a traditional manner with island inspired teak carved furniture, all offering private plunge pools. The king sized beds are sheer luxury with crisp white Egyptian cotton sheets and pillow menu. 

The Beach Villas are set in lush tropical gardens and are very private. The outdoor area is a beautiful feature with a dining area set underneath a sala and a romantic double seater swing. It is the palatial bathroom in the Beach Villas that truly is the star feature of the room. It is an indoor/outdoor bathroom that is almost larger than the bedroom itself. It has a double daybed located next to a beautiful water oasis with stepping stones out to the sunken bath and outdoor shower.

Spend an afternoon, relaxing on the gorgeous hand crafted swing, a feature of every villa, beach and over-water. Read a book and laze the afternoon away.

The Ocean Villas are also very unique, 'L' shaped with the bedroom on one side and the bathroom on the other. The pool is in the middle of the bedroom and the bathroom and both walls are made of glass, completely folding back so that you have direct access from the bedroom and bathroom to the pool. The Over Water Villas have a sunken bath with a glass bottom. On the deck you'll find a suspended hammock and a double seater swing, perfect for relaxing over the water and cooling down with sea breezes. 


The dining on this island is outstanding with six restaurants to choose from including the amazing underwater restaurant and wine cellar, Sea. Sea is an experience not to be missed. With a select number of tables, it has a very intimate feel with brightly coloured sea life surrounding the restaurant. The over water dining hub creates a beautiful atmosphere in the evenings.  At Salt, the Teppanyaki Restaurant you can dine in the middle of the Indian Ocean where your Japanese Chef prepares your meal while you relax. A personalised 'Dining by Design' experience is a must, so let us organise a romantic experience just for you wherever you choose be that on a private sandbank in the Indian Ocean or sailing on your own private yacht.
