Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas Launches New Family Beach Pool Villas

Designed with multi-generational travel in mind and for larger group stays, Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas has launched new family-style villas just in time for travellers seeking their next winter sun escape.  Setting a renewed precedent in spacious beachfront living and a welcome addition to the resort’s collection of multi-bedroom private pool residences introduced earlier this year, these new accommodation options consist of four Two Bedroom Family Beach Pool Villas and eight One Bedroom Family Beach Pool Villas.


Enveloped by tropical landscaping and spread across 412 sqm, the new Two Bedroom Family Beach Pool Villas are just steps from the beach. A 12m swimming pool, fitted with massage jets and submerged seating, runs alongside an extensive outdoor sun terrace.  Nearby is a shaded dining sala and outdoor barbecue pit complete with a sunken dining lounge.

Ample space and privacy are assured for every member of the family. The villa comprises of two separate bedrooms – one King and one Twin, both of which include a day bed, a fully-equipped refreshment centre and wine fridge, and an en suite bathroom. In harmony with the light, airy, green surrounds, guests can enjoy the freedom of an outdoor shower or luxuriate in the oversized bathtub, whilst relaxing to the sound of the bathroom’s waterfall feature. An additional sleeping room suitable for one adult is located within the interconnecting space between both bedrooms, ensuring convenience for parents travelling with children or additional family members.

With nightly rates starting from USD 4,500, the Two Bedroom Family Beach Pool Villa can accommodate three adults and two children, or five adults.


The One Bedroom Family Beach Pool Villa measures 258 sqm and sits amongst foliage and coconut palms on the 30-acre island, with direct access to the beach.

Ideally suited for families with young children, the villas feature separate sleeping quarters suitable for children under 12 years old. Calming white walls and natural teak wood furnishings complete the atmosphere, creating a cosy space where little ones can be at play or at rest, whilst parents unwind with some me-time, whether reclining on the outdoor deck’s sun loungers or swing bed.

The One Bedroom Family Beach Pool Villa can accommodate two adults and two children, with rates starting from USD 2,200 per night.


The new Family Beach Pool Villas compliment Anantara Kihavah’s recently completed collection of two-, three-, and four-bedroom pool residences.

Staying true to the heritage of the destination, each residence features Kajan thatched palm roofs and Balau hardwood flooring with floor-to-ceiling doors opening onto  expansive outdoor decks. Rattan details and Maldivian motifs further accent the tropical vibe of each room. Each residence is also fitted with its own professional working kitchen, double-bed spa treatment room and gym featuring a range of fitness equipment. There is a dedicated Villa Host to attend to every need, and a Wine Sommelier and Personal Chef service on request.

Generously spaced at 1,330 sqm for the Two Bedroom Beach Pool Residence or 1,500 sqm for the Two Bedroom Sunset Over Water Pool Residence, to a commanding 2,000 sqm for the Four Bedroom Beach Pool Residence, the Kihavah Collection is the embodiment of island living at its most luxurious.


The resort offers a wide range of family experiences from land-based activities and undersea adventures to star gazing under the night sky.

Snorkel or dive at the resort’s house reef, home to hundreds of tropical fish, Hawksbill Turtles, Nurse and Reef Sharks, Spotted Eagle Rays, and Jacks amongst others.  Experienced instructors, first class rental equipment, comfortable dhonis and reef dive sites cater for both beginners and experienced explorers. In glass-bottomed kayaks, guests can follow the edge of the reef fringing the island for some of the best over water views of the oceanic life thriving in their natural habitat. If staying dry is preferred, hop onboard the ‘Ocean Whisperer’ for a sunset cruise or dolphin discovery excursion.

Catering for children aged six to 11 years old, a trio of marine biology programmes is available. Designed to provide an educational holiday, young explorers can join the resident marine biologist on a turtle quest or manta snorkelling excursion or take part in coral transplanting and essential research snorkelling adventures.

Named after the seashells found on the beach encircling the island, ‘Thiththi Boli Kids Club’ offers complimentary daily supervised programmes, fun arts and crafts activities, indoor and outdoor sports, and games for younger guests between four to 12 years old.

There are six restaurants and bars, each offering a distinctive setting, menu and ambiance, including SEA, the resort’s signature underwater restaurant and wine cellar. Families can watch the diverse marine life playing hide-and-seek amongst the coral reefs at breakfast, lunch or dinner.

As the sun sets, the clear night skies of the Maldives are a canopy of a thousand stars. Discover the secrets of the universe with stargazing encounters led by the resort’s SKY Guru, or simply spend time together enjoying a movie outdoors on the wide screen with a Cinema Under the Stars movie choice.
