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.

Nothing to show.
fantastic resort with a wide range of high quality restaurants, great accommodation and outstanding service. from the moment we arrived the staff made us feel comfortable, welcome and always made sure we had a great experience. all excellent.
Let me start by saying reading a Maldives review can be tricky as if it is from a first time visit all people are amazed ,as Maldives is truly beautiful and even a 3 star resort has good food and Maldivinan kitchen is good. We went 5 days to Kihava in Feb to continue with 4 days at their sister resort Anantara Dighu (Another review soon), I have been to to 12 resorts since my first time in Maldives 1996. Soneva Fushi, Huvafen fushi, Coco Palm, Coco Bodu Hithi, Villamendoo, Sun Siyam, Cora Cora..and some more. After experience what I look for is a lush island, with good close by snorkeling, good scuba area, nice beach , good service, great food and restaurants and the right vibe/mode. Kihava has it all. from the moment you arrive you get that feeling of ease, the calm, the here I want to be feeling, with no stress, were ever you go on the island you want to stay and have no stress. There are not many that have it all. The food is amazing, the restaurant settings too, underwater is fantastic, far better then the one at Conrad, cocktail and wines superb. Villas very nice. So service, impeccable, never a plate on you table too long, never wait to order, always tidy and good with real friendly staff, house cleaning sparkeling. We had some really small issues with our first villa and some other bad luck things, let me tell you that this was adressed with speed and professionality and over the top compensated for. Our host Zaheen was truely amazing and set everything up what we wanted. Snorkeling is very good, very close access to the reef were I during my first 30mins saw a huge Grey reef shark, blacktip, Turtles and Eagle rays also beautiful corals and ton of small schools of fish, so if you go out there, you can see stuff :) Kids club, I have a 5 year old girl who absolutely loved it, she is still talking about it, activities and staff amazing. This is and island you want to go to rest and relax, there are no pool games or inflatables in the main pool, everything feels like a big spa. The BEST Maldivian Island I have ever visited and I am Picky Thank you Kihava, Per Widelov
We celebrated wedding anniversary here and believed here is one of the best in Maldives, a great place indeed for vacation and very good services from villa host. We will definitely come back for our next wedding anniversary
