Some say it is human nature to seek new and exhilarating experiences. For us, it is rather important to keep that excitement of life burning bright – and Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas, immersed in the pristine beauty of the Indian Ocean adds just enough fuel to that. Home to the world’s best underwater restaurant, “SEA”, the pleasures you would encounter below the surface of this island is beyond anyone’s sweetest dream.
With 79 beach and over water pool villas, the island offers tranquility and privacy – and an experience of a lifetime with a variety of activities. But for anyone who wishes to stay at the resort, the most attention grabbing feature is bound to be their award winning underwater restaurant and wine cellar. Being the world’s first underwater wine cellar, the spectacular show put on by the sea life around the restaurant is of pure ecstasy; from random swims to darts and dashing by, they leave no room for monotony amongst the guests.
Apart from the beautiful blue scenery, the SEA also offers an impeccable gourmet menu, accompanied with a choice of wines spanning nine decades which is truly world class and paired by their resident Wine Guru.
If you are the kind of person who isn’t easily intrigued by the blue, then you can try to snorkel some of the world’s most treasured reefs within a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, explore uninhabited islands encircled by abundant reefs home to turtles, eels and beautiful coral formations, or cruise in solitude into a tapestry of unimaginable colors to a glorious Maldivian sunset – and if that doesn’t satisfy you either, then you may consider a go at the other activities offered by the island, with boundless horizons.
The resort is also a great option for the foodies out there as guests are treated to a host of dining options across various world cuisines. As such, they have a quartet of restaurants; Sea, Fire, Salt and Sky. They offer a one-of-a-kind over and underwater dining experience – from a mythical escape into the depths of the ocean to reaching for the sky at the rooftop bar, the Indian Ocean unfolds before your eyes in four different ways.
Foodie or not, Anantara Kihavah will get your inner traveler excited with all of its features and beauty. With just 35 minutes by seaplane from the capital city, it is among the most celebrated island getaways in the Maldives, having seen its fair share of celebrity vacations including the likes of John Legend and Chrissy Teigen! Fun fact; John proposed to Chrissy in Anantara Kihavah!
