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.

The reservation team has made no effort and act as if they dont really want you there. We have visited Kihavah before while staying at the Four Seasons nearby, its a lovely island, however booking directly with the resort (which I generally prefer) has been nothing but a disaster. Emails are not read properly , the dates are mixed up. While there is availability on the website , they are saying its fully booked. Its been two week trying to book a split stay between a beach villa and a water villa . We managed to book beach villa online, however to book water villa the system requires a min stay of certain number of nights. We are staying on the island already and just want to move to a different villa. After emails back and forth, they email with wrong dates and crazy expensive rates when on their website Black Friday rates apply for the dates selected . As our travel dates are fast approaching we cannot wait longer and decided to go for to a different island . I hope the management does smth about it. Not all requirements are straight forward that can be booked online. We are staying at 4 different resorts on this trip, we have had no issues booking for example Vakkaru where they respond within hours and very approachable . Same goes to Naladhu. whatever is wrong with Kihavah reservation team needs to be sorted. We have travelled a lot in the Maldives never encountered such attitude where you feel unwelcome before you even land.
Everything was amazing beach swimming pool restaurants and good staff specially Maria she was very kindly wonderful resort and very friendly staff we loved this place and my kinds enjoyed at kid’s club with their activities for kids
Just a couple of days ago we returned from the Maldives! We were not the first time on the islands, but this time we decided to try to hare our experience with Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas! We have never regretted our choice, everything was great! The hotel staff responsibly approaches their tasks, creates a cozy and comfortable atmosphere. We were very lucky to have our butler Piyal. He was always in touch and helped to resolve any issues at any time. Whether you need to book a spa, a tour, a restaurant or anything else, Piyal has always been there to help! Special thanks to him for making our stay as comfortable and carefree as possible! There were four of us traveling: parents, younger brother and me. We all have different interests and desires regarding recreation, but in this hotel we found entertainment for everyone to taste. Incredible spa with many types of massages that you don't want to leave! A star observatory where you can book private stargazing! Large selection of restaurants ranging from Japanese cuisine to an underwater restaurant. An underwater restaurant is an unforgettable experience, especially in the morning! The hotel also has an open-air cinema where you can dine. It was a great experience and definitely worth trying at least once in your life! Every day, the hotel arranges sports activities, some of which do not need to be paid extra, but simply visited! I personally really enjoyed sunset yoga! I would also like to mention the incredible Dive Center, where there are many options for spending leisure time on the water or even underwater! I tried diving for the first time in my life and I highly recommend it to everyone! The hotel's house reef is the best I've ever seen. The variety of fish and living corals is amazing! It is also possible to get a diver's certificate by completing the course! Special thanks to my instructor Maria, who showed me a new world and taught me all the necessary skills! Thanks to her patience and active participation in my training! For lovers of a relaxing holiday, I would like to note a clean beach and a calm environment! The rooms were always clean and everything was comfortable!
