Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas

A haven of Pool Villas, Anantara Kihavah redefines luxurious space and unforgettable gastronomic journeys at SEA. SPICE. FIRE. and SKY.

Surrounded by nothing but turquoise lagoon which melts into sapphire blue, the luxury resort island of Anantara Kihavah Maldives and its pure white sands rise up out of the ocean like a mirage. 

For centuries, this was where Arab traders sailing to the Far East took shelter; a lush paradise blessed by coconut, papaya and mango trees. Navigating archipelago to archipelago by the stars, the seafarers were also drawn by the riches of the ocean surrounding the island – where a prehistoric volcano sank back into the depths, leaving blooming corals within a house reef and a wealth of lagoon fish.

Located on the Baa Atoll in a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Anantara Kihavah Maldives luxury resort invites you to imagine your own barefoot luxury paradise. Savour the luxury of space in your private pool beach villa or over water villa. Snorkel with mantas and Hawksbill sea turtles. Stargaze into the night. Dine on a deserted sandbank or beneath the ocean’s surface at this enchanting sanctuary.
