Anantara Kihavah

Kihavah Huravalhi, maldives

A sunny paradise like the Maldives would not be as unspoiled as it is today without those who care for it. For example, UNESO declared the nation’s Baa Atoll a biosphere reserve in June 2011 to protect the exquisite coral reefs in the area.

One of the many treasures in the Baa Atoll is Anantara Kihavah, a resort built on an island called Kihavah Huravalhi. With facilities like a luxury spa and a private pool in each cabin, the hotel exemplifies a dream destination. There’s even an underwater wine cellar and restaurant, for those who seek a one-of-a-kind culinary experience. While the hotel has a lavish vibe, it respects and advocates eco-friendly tourism through its coral adoption program. At the dive center, guests can explore the surrounding waters, where they’ll find sea creatures and aquatic plants of all colors and sizes. They may also join the adoption program by helping to transplant coral fragments into metal frames with the resident marine biologist

As much as possible, try to pack light! At the Anantara Kihavah, you’ll also find complimentary sun hats, beach bags, slippers and even yoga mats in each room. So you can save that space in your suitcase for breezy tunics, floral sundresses and other stylish beach garments. Photo Credit:
