Unwind, Relax. Redefined, refurbished and recognized as KIHAA Maldives, nestled on its own 600 meters long, coconut-shaped island, complete with lush green vegetation, long white soft beaches and an adjacent house reef. Whilst the resort offers 124 spacious, private villas and whole range of classic and natural facilities, majority of the island has still been left in its pristine natural state and is a true barefoot Paradise! No News- No Shoes! KIHAA - named traditionally as `young coconut` is a haven of peace, tranquility and serenity. Proudly nestled within the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the entire Island and lagoon is the exclusive and private domain of our guests across the Hanifaru Bay which is a world renowned Marine Protected Area, where whale sharks manta rays can be watched at the first 'Reserve' island in the Maldives. Relax in our Spa or go for barefoot walks on the long soft beach around the entire island or stargaze the clear night skies. Paradise awaits you.

Wonderful island for honeymoon, we had room with swimming pool sea side highly recommended for the privacy and experience. The overall journey is positive, the snorkeling is just amazing, the island is one of a kind and staff is very kind and trying their best. - at the restaurant Ibrahim is showing at his best to know and serve the customers. - at the reception Andri is always smiling and trying to help at anytime - at the housekeeping Erfan took good care of us during our honeymoon journey. - at the airport Nawaaf is the most professional and experienced man i’ve met during our journey, deserved to be staff manager. What could be improved? - Clarity and transparency about what is in package or not - Advices about facilities and services during journey, the snorkeling spots - some renovations and maintenance

Hotel's Favorite
My fiancé and I spent 11 days at kihaa and I can agree that it is more of a 3 star resort compared to other hotels in the Maldives BUT the staff really give it an extra something!! 5 star service all the way!! Dawa and the rest of the bar staff at the swings bar we’re just over the top. Very attentive! Ibrahim was top notch!! He just went above and beyond for us the whole time we were there! I couldn’t say more nice things about the staff. If we were to come back it would be because of how we were treated during our stay. Food was good even though I’m a really picky eater I was always able to put together a full meal for myself no matter what theme night it was.

This resort is dream destination! From first touch till the last step they care about you. There is no NO for your wishes. The Villa/room was big for 4 of us, with fresh water every day, big bathroom on open, with bathtube, and 2 showers. The beach is a dream, located like 20 steps from your Villa, amazing sand. Nature of island is so beautiful, lots of palm trees and other tropical vegetation. All the roads are barefoot approved, there is no need for any kind of boots on this island. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner (great local fresh food) in restaurant which is 20 steps from the pool and bar, so you can spend all they on the beach/by the pool. There is always room in shadow of palms or under the parasol by the pool and on the beach. Staff is so kind and warmy. They are the best, especially Anthony from the Undhoali bar by the pool, he is great professional. This place is so great and must see. True holiday for your body and soul.

Lovely island which needs some fine tuning. Probably rate at the moment 3.5 star; don't be put off though! Please read on. We travelled from 10th to 21st January 2022. We arrived after a long journey, unfortunately, we had to wait for our transfer for 4 hours at Male, not ideal. Would recommend to book a seaplane or speak to your travel company regarding this before you book. When we arrived we were told to go to restaurant, as just closing and next meal time is in the evening, (no options of snacks unless you pay for them), not a good start, especially after a long journey, a snack after going to room would have been fine. Time to check-in, advised we were All Inclusive, which we queried as we had booked Gold Inclusive, thankfully, this was then confirmed. Taken to our beach villa which was in a good location, very good size, everything you need; (note you don't get alcohol in fridge). Villa 116. Took a walk around island and went for dinner. Starting a fresh day, went for breakfast, very varied, but not particularly hot. Lunch time the same. Very disappointed. We have been lucky enough to visit 4 star Maldives islands before and Kihaa really doesn't match them at the moment. We decided to give our hopefully constructive comments to the Manager. Mr Aasad kindly met us and we expressed our concerns, A: Food, B: Service C: AI package. He was very thankful for our comments and said he would address our concerns. The next couple of days the staff seemed to be more attentive and generally making our holiday a pleasure. Also, the AI menu for drinks was changed in the bars, to avoid confusion between Basic and Gold Inclusive; (other customers were also confused). The accommodations all vary, some need updating, some are reasonably new and new ones are also currently being built. We believe Kihaa are consciously trying to make changes, as they are also aware of previous reviews; (not always positive). We had a lovely stay and were thankful for the input we received. A complimentary massage was fab. We would recommend a visit to Kihaa it is very beautiful and not too big. We probably won't visit again, only because we would like to try another island; (if we are lucky enough too). The snorkelling is good. Excellent for families with children. Two lovely pools. Separate bars to meet guests preferences. Wishing you Happy Holidays.
