ANANTARA KIHAVAH VILLAS MALDIVES
Transfer Mode seaplane Distance from Airport 125 Km
Tranquil private villas. Underwater dining. Boundless horizons.
Enjoying a prime location in the Maldives’ Baa Atoll island archipelago and on the doorstep of Hanifaru Bay, Anantara Kihavah Villas is the perfect place from which to explore the underwater world of the Indian Ocean. Set on Kihavah Huravalhi, one of the most pristine Maldivian islands, the resort is 30-minute seaplane flight from Male International Airport, an unforgettable experience in itself as the plane flies over a string of glowing coral islands amidst turquoise waters.

79 spacious private pool villas, ranging from 260 to 2,730 square meters, are either poised over the water with sweeping ocean views or nestled along a pristine stretch of private beach. Snorkel some of the world’s most treasured reefs within a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, explore uninhabited islands encircled by abundant reefs home to turtles, eels and beautiful coral formations, or cruise in solitude into a tapestry of unimaginable colours to a glorious Maldivian sunset.

At Anantara Kihavah Villas guests are treated to a host of dining options across various world cuisines. Our quartet of restaurants Sea. Fire. Salt. Sky offers a one-of-a-kind over and underwater dining experience. From a mythical escape into the depths of the ocean to reaching for the sky at the rooftop bar, the Indian Ocean unfolds before your eyes in four different ways.
