The Ultimate Luxury Beach Residence can be found at Anantara Kihavah

In a destination as luxurious as the Maldives, it is hard to top the extravagant experiences already available, however, Anantara Kihavah‘s 1,050 square metre three-bedroom Beach Pool Residence and connecting private one-bedroom Beach Pool Villa offers guests the ultimate in luxurious accommodation.

Secluded in a green cocoon of island lushness, beach access points pierce the walls of greenery leading to the island’s immaculate white sands and coral house reef. The Residence is designed to host fantasy-filled holiday escapes in a private sanctuary for families and intimate groups.

Guests arrive at the island via an unforgettable seaplane flight over jewel-tone waters. Greeted at the jetty, each family or group of friends is escorted along a white-sand path cutting through the tropical coconut palm trees, passing the Potager herb garden and ushered through the Residence’s private entrance.

Inside, guests find themselves in a designer styled haven borrowing elegant accents from Thailand, Morocco and India. Teak columns punctuate spaces of pristine white purity. Daybeds float over the infinity-edge pool and the water features of courtyard bathrooms. Swaying palms rise through the sprawling wooden deck.

By day, guests can luxuriate in Anantara Spa treatments, delivered in the privacy of the Residence’s spa sala, and a variety of imaginative indulgences. In the central villa living area, a full multimedia suite provides a private cinema experience on the 55-inch 3D LED TEV with Bose home theatre system. A wine humidor adds a distinctive touch to the central bar, while a painting easel waits for colourful bursts of inspiration.

By night, guests are welcome to immerse themselves in the two pools, twinkling with fibre-optic lights to mirror the night sky of the Indian Ocean. An adjacent Jacuzzi pool and sunken dining cabana invite with more spaces to relax. Retreating to each of the bedrooms, guests can drift to sleep in oversized king beds or enjoy a late-night soak in two-person bathtubs while savouring an exquisite bottle from their bedroom’s own custom-stocked wine humidor.
