My husband and I were blown away by the whole experience, from hospitality and customer service to the beach and snorkeling. We chose this resort for its aesthetics and proximity to world-class snorkeling: there's a house reef around the island and convenient tours to Hanifaru Bay during the manta ray season. What continued to amaze us were all the personalized touches to celebrate our honeymoon and birthdays. Also, the food is exquisite! The Anantara Kihavah really has it all, and we hope to come back in the future!

Hotel's Favourite
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,

We, a family of 4, spend 1 week here early Oct and absolutely loved the place. Everything was perfectly organized from the welcome, meeting our amazing villa host Azmeen, the various dinner reservations and outings, etc. Some aspects - Overwater Villas were very spacious, with a lot of 'cool' things, like a swinging day bed on the patio, decent shaped pool, glass bottom bathtub, etc. Yes, there is some wear and tear to be seen largely on the exterior, but if you grew up in the tropics and / or close to the ocean you will know how the elements take toll - The food was amazing in all restaurants. Our favorite was Spices but all of them delived top notch meals. Breakfast too offered a great variety, only fresh fruits are somewhat limited but to be expected if you think about the location you are in - We loved the island and the fact that you had a lot of greenery, not only white sand and blue waters. Taking a bike around the island, whilst only a short trip, was a lot of fun - The kids loved snorkeling along the house reef. And for those who are a bit timid about swiming in the ocean, yes there are black tip reef sharks but they are completely harmless - and my children were super proud to being able to claim that they swam with sharks - Overall it was the staff that made the stay as pleasant as it was. There are too many names too mention (e.g. Azmeen, Jenny, Tedy, Sam, Becky and so many more) but all of them were amazing Definitely a great stay

great vacation! We were surrounded by such attention and care that we did not have time to notice how we had to leave. I didn't want to leave at all. All restaurants - food is beyond praise! Very interesting reef, wonderful SPA. We thank the hotel managers for such a high level of service. And also our butler Ismail, who made this trip wonderful and carefree!

Our 5th stay at Kihavah was as perfect as the other ones. Especially our villa host Ifoo took perfect care of us. Sugar was always around and helped us in every way. Also the massage therapists Mega, Dini and yona were perfect in helping us to relax. In other words: A perfect stay in paradise at our "second home"
