Anantara: World’s Most Beautiful Eco Playground

February 18, 2016

Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas has unveiled of its one-of-a-kind three-bedroom beach pool residence—and it oozes relaxation all wrapped up in bliss.

Secluded in a cocoon of island green; daybeds float over the infinity-edge pool and the courtyard bathrooms become well thought-out water features, while swaying palms rise overhead.

Beautiful accommodation aside, it’s the natural spa treatments that had us at hello, with many incorporating the islands’ local aromatherapy oils, flowers and foods—combinations to help you forget busy ever existed. While the spa itself is a relaxation haven, you don’t even have to leave your new home. Instead unwind in the spa sala for one of two of our top picks:

An invigorating ritual inspired by the healing powers of fresh island produce. This indigenous Signature Experience uses the freshest and most potent ingredients Kihavah Huravalhi Island has to offer, leaving you in an elevated state of complete bliss. Floral Foot Ritual – Coconut & Lime Polish – Shower – Coconut & Ginger Body Cocoon – Shower – Kihavah Aroma Massage – Refreshment

Anantara Signature Massage (90 Minutes)

In addition to the pools, beach access points pierce the towering walls of greenery leading to the island’s immaculate white sands and the treasures of the house reef waiting to be snorkelled and explored.

Set on one of the most picturesque Maldivian islands, Anantara Kihavah Villas features 79 private pool sanctuaries either poised over water with sweeping ocean views or nestled along a stretch of private beach.

What to do There

Snorkel some of the world’s most treasured reefs within a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, explore uninhabited islands encircled by abundant reefs—home to turtles, eels and beautiful coral formations, or cruise in solitude into a tapestry of unimaginable colours to a unforgettable Maldivian sunset.
