Surrounded by nothing but turquoise lagoon which melts into sapphire blue, the Maldives luxury resort island of Anantara Kihavah 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.
Wishing to keep the pristine nature of the island intact, not one tree has been moved – as evidenced by the villas growing up around them. The design pays homage to the seafarers of old, fusing Indian Ocean, Arab and Portuguese motifs with indigenous materials.
Located on the Baa Atoll in a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas 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.
Cradled by lush vegetation and the ocean view of the Maldives, beach villas at Anantara Kihavah are private sanctuaries of indulgence.
Hidden away on the palm-fringed island and opening onto soft white sands, the beauty of the Indian Ocean lies right at your villa’s doorstep. Spend the day floating in your private infinity pool with over water loungers or dine in a shaded sala-style pavilion with a vintage of choice from your villa’s wine collection.
Your al fresco bathroom features both indoor and outdoor rain showers and can be reached through a his and hers dressing room. Walk over the reflection pool and sink into a luxurious soaking tub for two in your luxury villa at this five-star beach resort.

Awake to endless Indian Ocean views. Slide open floor-to-ceiling doors of your ocean villa and plunge into your infinity-edge pool. Sunbathe or lounge in over water hammocks, or descend directly from your sundeck to swim with brilliant tropical schools and the occasional sea turtle.
In the Maldives, villas suspended over water are amongst the most unique of experiences to discover in the destination. Elevating this mystique, is when they occupy the prime West-facing position. Setting the stage for romance, our sunset over water pool villa offers all the luxuries one can expect from an Anantara experience, against a backdrop of a spectacular Maldivian sunset over the Indian Ocean.
Dine on your veranda with the panoramic views before you, your meal served in the comfort of your villa and toast the moment with a select vintage from your chilled wine collection. Soak in a sunken glass-bottom tub for two as the stars come out overhead. Beneath you, pufferfish swim amongst swaying corals and darting fish. Sink into your ocean view bed with your choice of pillows and soft Egyptian cotton, and drift into slumber accompanied by the soothing sound of the ocean.
