Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Redefined, refurbished and recognized as KIHAAD Maldives, nestled on its own 600 meters long, coconut-shaped island, complete with lush green vegetation, long white beaches and an adjacent house reef. Whilst the resort offers 118 spacious, private villas and whole range of simple and natural facilities, majority of the island has still been left in its pristine natural state.KIHAAD - named traditionally in local Dhivehi language as `young coconut island` with a beach length of some 1,200 meters around the Island, is a haven of peace, tranquility and serenity. Proudly nestled within the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the entire Island and lagoon is the exclusive and private domain of our guests set just across the Hanifaru Bay which is a world renowned Marine Protected Area (MPA) announced by UNESCO, where whale sharks and manta rays meet seasonally. Just like UNESCO, the philosophy of KIHAAD is to focus on the preservation of marine life and local lifestyle, traditional ways and customs of serving and living together. That is why we are the first 'The Reserve' island in the Maldives. Guests may fly-in by Domestic with 20-minute flight from the Domestic Airport at Male', the capital of the Maldives to Dharavandhoo Domestic Airport, the closest airport in the area which only 5-minute speedboat to the island of KIHAAD . ... more   less
