    Our opinion

    A magical island-resort offering superb surroundings and service.

    Hotel description

    Anantara Kihavah is a five star, traditionally luxurious resort located on a large, pear-shaped coral island fringed with lush vegetation. This is a classically comfortable resort with a mix of spacious beach villas and overwater villas, all of which have their own private pool and sumptuous outside space, creating in fact a haven on pool villas offering a sanctuary within a sanctuary. A feature of the pool villas is the sense of space created by high ceilings, timber interiors and marble floors that open onto the tropical natural surroundings, whether beach facing or over water. With the emphasis on seclusion, day beds on your veranda or a hammock suspended over the turquoise sea in an over water villa provide plenty of relaxation, yet there are plenty of activities too. You are bound to want to snorkel through crystal clear waters of the lagoon or enjoy the surrounding ocean aboard a private sailing boat. Dine in the privacy of your villa or enjoy a new culinary experience in the resort’s signature restaurant, ‘Sea.Fire.Salt.Sky’, with its ground-breaking over and underwater dining concept. At Sea you descend under water to a wine cellar and restaurant, where you can enjoy a gourmet tasting menu accompanied by fine wines. At Fire you witness the sizzling theatrics of the chefs in the teppanyaki lounge as they grill local rock lobster, catch of the day or Japanese beef before your eyes. A more conventional yet still gourmet dining experience is to be found in Plates, open all day from breakfast to dinner, which includes a fine selection of Maldivian dishes. In between times, drinks and lunches are served at Manzaru with its swim-up pool bar – perfect for refreshing juices during the day or cocktails in the evenings. Spa treatments take place over-water, there are also cookery classes and the Thithi Boli Kids Club. The resort is committed to protecting the environment and preserving local culture through education and adherence to the requirements of Green Globe standards.
