"We had the best time!"
Overall: • Amazing staff – friendly, helpful, go above and beyond to make you feel special with many personalized services (in our case: birthday cakes and complimentary champagne, and flowers arrangement on the bed); Many thanks to Dylan, the GM, and Shah, our villa host, at Kihavah for making our first trip to Maldives so memorable • Property in superb condition – well maintained rooms and facilities. We stayed in a over-water pool villa and it was everything we had hope for. Something special here at Kihavah is that your bathtub and outdoor shower have glass bottom, so you can see the ocean and sometimes fishes swim by as you shower • Beautiful Beach – The Island was beautiful with crystal clear water and the whitest sand. We also got to see variety of fishes and reef sharks right from our villa! We're very grateful to stay at such a luxury property like Kihavah. The staffs, the property and the beach made us feel like we were in heaven! Below we have listed some of the things that really stood out to us which made Kihava such an amazing place that we will definitely comeback many times in the near future. The staff: • Upon arrival at Kihavah, we were greeted with our "villa host" who was our go-to person for all our needs during the stay! (we were also given a cell phone to call him while we are not in the villa). Shah (our Villa host) took a great care of us and made us feel like home. We have had personal butlers at other places before, but the level of hospitality and helpfulness of Shah and other staff here is just at another level. Thank you, Shah, for your hospitality! Restaurant: • We have tried all the restaurants at Kihavah, and our favorite is Sea – an underwater restaurant. Strongly recommend for you to try this one-of-a-kind dining with an underwater view. Make sure you make the booking in advance for dinners (all restaurants) with your Villa Host to secure a table • For lunch, we actually preferred in-villa dining which offers decent variety of cuisines (Asian, Intl, Arabic) you can get the food set up outside overlooking the ocean – can't ask for a better way to relax and enjoy our vacation. • The second day of our stay was my birthday and my boyfriend surprised me with a special private dinner on the beach. The set up was beautifully done decorated with romantic lighting. The seafood was very fresh. You will have your own personal server and chef who grilled the seafood for you. Champaign and birthday cake were also a special treat from Kihavah team. Such a memorable experience would not happen without a superb cooperation of the staff. They made it so special for me. The room: • The room was amazing as mentioned before – spacious, clean, in great condition. But I think what we really loved were 2 things 1.) A huge patio space where you can spend the day relaxing on a cozy hammock overlooking the ocean. 2) Spacious bathroom with glass-bottom bathtub and outdoor shower. The best part is that it's just one step away from our pool. Activities: • Lots of complimentary activities throughout the day that you can take advantage of we enjoyed sunrise yoga. You can just walk along the beach to breakfast afterward – the view was breathtaking. • We also played tennis on some afternoons. We were blown away that the staff had the court set up with balls, towels, chilled water bottles. This is the treatment that you started getting used to while staying at Kihavah. Getting there: • From airport to Male, you need to take a sea plane which takes about ~45 minutes to get to Kihava. We booked the seaplane directly with the hotel and we were assisted by Anatara staffs from the moment we walked out of the arrival area. Lastly, thank you once again Kihavah team for making our trip so perfect. We had an amazing time and will surely come back!

"summer vacation in Maldives"
Anantara Kihavah Maldives is over the top resort that you would want to stay in Maldives. The Sea restaurant is one of the best dinning experiment ever. We got a chance to stay at the overwater villas with private pool. Is just breathtaking as soon as you walk in to the villa. The service is one of the best service I have seen by far out of most five star resort. The bottom line is that if you seen the video or picture on any of the social media is even better in real life. If we ever go back to Maldives again, we definitely would come back to Anantara again. thanks for the great vacation.
"If I were to title in just one word, it would be 'BLISS'! Service 'Par Excellence'!"
Everything at the resort was incredible! The Staff at the resort were the BEST PART! Everyone went beyond their limits to make sure our stay was great and experience was even better. Mr.Shah, our Villa Host was just a call away. He was always available whenever we needed him. He guided us through with our activities during our complete stay. Ms.Analiezl was excellent with all the inputs and information that we needed to know about the resort. Ever smiling and courteous with everything that we needed during our stay. The food was delicious, and very varied, with a different cuisine every evening. Great selection of wines too. We had a Beach Pool Villa Room which was simply stunning, with direct access to the ocean. Lots of water sports to do as well. Every minute of our stay felt like we were in paradise! The island was very nice and the facilities excellent. I loved being barefoot all the time. Do not take high heels (ladies). You only need flip flops for this vacation. Casual attire is in line with the islands atmosphere. I liked dinning by the SEA (one of the best underwater restaurants) and the whole informality of the island. The sea is beautiful, the staff friendly, the buffet is very good and the island just the right size. Make sure you go on the snorkelling excursions. Try the cocktails, they are superb. And visit the spa for total relaxation. It is a perfect destination for any type of holiday, family, romance. And oh! don't forget to do a 'stargazing session' at SKY bar with the SKY GURU - Mr.Ali Shameem. It's just brilliant. And the best part is although the resort was almost fully booked, it didn't feel crowded at all. Overall it was an amazing experience with a big capital A - we will definitely go back again. Anantara Kihavah Maldives should definitely be rated as one of the top 10 Maldivian Resorts on Trip Advisor - absolutely 100 %!!!
