One of the best luxurious resorts Maldives can offer - Anantara Kihavah Villas - welcomes you after a short 35-minute seaplane flight from Velana International Airport to Baa Atoll. Guests of Kihavah are entitled to access the VIP Seaplane Lounge stocked with complimentary drinks and light refreshments
The resort offers 80 beach and over water villas and residences.
Some water villas have a hammock over the water.

SWIMMING WITH MANTA RAYS Hanifaru Bay lies within the Baa Atoll, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, and is home to the world’s largest congregation of manta rays between the months of June and November. Guests are invited to embark on a short ride on Dhoni - a traditional Maldivian boat, to swim with the majestic mantas in their natural habitat.

STARGAZING Expand your view of the galaxy at SKY, the Maldives’ only over water observatory and luxury cocktail bar. Lay back on a circular daybed to gaze at the stars that glitter overhead, regaled by our SKY Guru’s fascinating insights. Spot the pale-yellow rings of Saturn or the counter-rotating zones and belts of Jupiter. Take a peek through the telescope at the Milky Way’s shining Omega Centauri.

UNDERWATER DINING AT SEA Experience the world’s first underwater wine cellar and one of only a few underwater restaurants.  Discover flawless degustation menus for lunch and dinner. Relish chef’s connoisseur creations paired with a wine range spanning nine decades, orchestrated by the resort’s Wine Guru.

CINEMA UNDER THE STARS Through the jungle and into a clearing fringed by palms, recline under a tranquil Maldivian sky and enjoy classic movies on a big screen under the stars.

EXPLORING THE HOUSE-REEF Just steps away from the island’s pristine white sand beach is the house-reef, affectionately known by the local islanders as ‘The Golden Wall’ due to its swaying colorful soft corals.
