Heaven on earth

This is one of the best hotels i have ever stayed in and i have stayed in many luxurious hotels all over the world. We stayed in a sunset beach villa which i would definitely recommend over the non sunset as you can see the sunset from the luxury of your villa. The beach villas are amazing and so secluded with its own pool and the bathroom is huge and like its own spa in the privacy of your own room. The beach is just steps away also. The water villas are set out exactly the same but are over the water and have a clear bathtub so you can see into the ocean. Restaurants on the half board are Plates and Salt with an additional cost for the tepinyaki and Sea the outstanding underwater restaurant which is definitely worth having a meal in as the views are so clear and its a fantastic alternative for dinner or lunch and even breakfast. There is also the best observatory in the Maldives here showing stunning clear views of Jupiter and the moon. The hotel has its own house reef to see sharks, rays and beautiful fish. The staff make this place even better and pay such attention to detail in every way and have amazing stories to tell. Anything you tell them they will rememeber each part and will go out of there way to make sure your stay is so memorable. Amazing kids club with lots of offer for families to enjoy their time. Food is outstanding and the word buffet in plates just doesnt do the place justice as anything you can think of will be made fresh there and then for you. This hotel is truly 5 star luxury without being uncomfortably posh. A special thank you to Ross the general manager, Jerry who makes the best juices at breakfast, and every single member of staff who made our honeymoon truly special and somewhere we will remember forever. You will leave this place wanting to return again and again that is something i can 100% guarantee.

Mini Vacay

This is the second time for us spending in Anantara Kihavah, not much changes, but the observatory and sky bar are valuable additions which was not present in our previous visit. Some villas may need renovation from outside but interior is well maintained. Only thing we could not fulfil was a trip to hanifaru bay, though which is out of hands of the hotel. Also experienced underwater dining which was mesmerizing as if we were dining with the fish that live near the house reef (a must try dining experience)

Perfect honeymoon!

For us this was a once in a lifetime experience. We knew that we wanted to go to a destination for our honeymoon that we would probably never go to otherwise and so we decided on the Maldives. It was a truly amazing experience. Just as we had imagined, blue sky, excellent beach, good food and amazing staff. We absolutely recommend this as honeymoon destination !
