With an enviable location on the Baa Atoll, Kihavah lies on the stunning island of Kihavah Huravalhi. As part of a protected UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, Kihavah affords some of the world's most incredible diving in waters where reefs are inhabited by tropical fish, turtles, eels, rays and the world's only year-round population of reef sharks. There is a choice of beautiful villas on the white sands or over the water, and the choice of activities and dining options is equally as impressive, as is the five-star service, which invariably surpasses expectations.
There are 79 beach and overwater villas – some of which have two or three bedrooms - ranging in size from 260 to 2,730 square metres. Fresh décor of white, neutrals and teak proves refreshing and relaxing and perfectly frames the beautiful views. You will need to choose between nestling amongst the palm trees on the quiet beach or residing over the turquoise sea; whichever you opt for you will enjoy a private pool and outdoor lounging area. If you love to linger over a drink on your terrace at sunset, choose a Sunset Beach Pool Villa or Sunset Over Water Pool Villa – both have spellbinding views.
Kihavah is well set up for families, with an excellent children's club to cater for those aged between three and 11 as well as a well-equipped recreation area for teenagers with sports equipment and board games. Thiththi Boli offers a daily programme of activities for younger children and babysitting is available for those over the age of three. The resort also has a Family Cinema for private screenings under the palm trees.
