Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas Continues Quest for Excellence with Recent Awards

Anantara Kihavah Villas Maldives

Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas has been awarded two globally-renowned awards adding to its collection of top awards amassed since the resort’s opening in 2011. The resort is situated within the Baa Atoll in a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve teeming with rich marine life.

Anantara Kihavah received the title of ‘Favourite Beach Hotel (International)’, by the readers of Condé Nast Traveller Middle East in its annual Readers’ Choice Awards, the premier travel industry awards in the GCC. The online poll invites readers to vote for their favourite travel experiences across several categories. This year’s win bears testament to the pristine beach conditions of the resort’s private island location in the UNESCO Biosphere of the Baa Atoll, married with the multitude of resort facilities designed for the ideal beach vacation. Having launched newly refurbished two, three and four-bedroom beach pool residences at the start of this year, the resort is also home to SEA, the underwater restaurant, as well as the most powerful observatory in the Maldives, offering guests spectacular views of the night sky.    

For the fifth-consecutive year, Anantara Kihavah’s acclaimed underwater dining experience, Sea Restaurant & Wine Cellar has received the prestigious ‘Best of Award of Excellence’ from Wine Spectator, the world’s leading influential wine publication. Winning lists are awarded based on displaying an “excellent breath across multiple winegrowing regions and/or significant vertical depth of top producers, along with superior presentation”. This recognition demonstrates the restaurant’s continuous and consistent approach hailing from 2013, when Sea first received the ‘Award of Excellence’. As the world’s first underwater cellar housing over 450 labels and vintage treasures dating from the 17th century, this accolade is an affirmation of the restaurant’s commitment to creating a carefully curated wine program for connoisseurs.

Anantara Kihavah Villas, nestled amongst lush vegetation, 80 spacious private pool sanctuaries and cool open spaces culminate in the ultimate tranquil paradise of Anantara Kihavah, your own sanctuary within a sanctuary. Poised either over the water with sweeping ocean views or nestled along a pristine stretch of private beach, each hideaway boasts large infinity-edge pools, dining pavilions, expansive wooden sundecks and ample lounging areas complete with swinging daybeds, hammocks and sun loungers.  All villas feature his and hers walk-in wardrobes, rain showers, outdoor showers and over-sized bathtubs big enough for two, whilst sunken glass bottom bathtubs in the over water villas and residences offer a mesmerising view of the crystal-clear ocean, both below and beyond the adjacent infinity-edge pool. To further enhance the experience, all villas and residences are serviced by a personal Villa Host 24 hours a day.
