My family of 4 just returned from Kihavah and we had an amazing time. This was our second time to the Maldives, but our first to Kihavah. Everything was outstanding. The size and uniqueness of the Water Villas was amazing! Our villa host - Cathy - was awesome! Food was great! We ate at Spice more than anywhere else - special shout out to Sugar and his staff - they were extremely professional and very warm folks. House reef was outstanding - loved the bikes as a way to get around. Oskars and his dive staff were outstanding! Can't wait to come back and visit again!

Have just returned from the most amazing week in the Maldives at this stunning resort, could not rate it highly enough, from the moment my husband and I set foot on the island we were treated like royalty and every member of staff made us feel very welcome and special including our amazing villa host. We were staying in one of the stunning over water villas, which had every possible amenities and if you needed anything else by chance it was not a bother and sourced for you asap! All restaurants we attended had great service and lovely food, excursions were good value for money. All in all we could not have had a better experience for our first time (hopefully not last) in the Maldives,

- Excellent house reef snorkelling - Instagram worthy underwater restaurant - Great Service - Excellent authentic food. We were also impressed that throughout our 2 week stay every day the ingredients were very fresh and top quality with huge variety (and that at such a remote place during a pandemic with supply issues!). Because of the remoteness most resorts will get food deliveries 2-4 times a month, but Kihava gets 2 times a week deliveries we were told. Which obviously is more costly, but shown in quality of food. This was our third trip to Maldives having been before to FS Kuda Hura and Baros, and we would probably choose Anantara Kihavah again next time over the others. FS is impeccable with service and activities, however the house reef snorkelling and food experience with Kihavah was to our surprise much better.

My wife and I loved our stay with you guys. Our butler Waheed made our stay amazing. He goes above and beyond for his guest. I can’t thank him enough for his 5 star service he gave us. The resort and its staff are also so amazing. Everyone goes above for its guest. Truly amazing experience and hope to be back soon.
