Environment Preservation

The Maldivian Islands are one of nature's most beautiful treasures and Anantara Kihavah Villas is helping to keep it that way. As the lowest-lying nation in the world, the Maldives is extremely vulnerable to the effects of global warming. The diverse and fragile flora and fauna of the area are sensitive to the habits of human residents and visitors. That is why Anantara Kihavah Villas is a green-thinking resort. The Green Initiative is their way of helping to protect the natural beauty of Baa Atoll by lessening the impact the resort has on the environment.

You'll notice that motorised water sports are not on offer, as they destroy the reefs and upset the rhythms of aquatic wildlife. The resident dive centre encourages divers to interact passively with the underwater world, in a way that is safe for both the diver and the marine life. Anantara Kihavah also makes an effort to reduce unnecessary packaging and waste and to use recycled materials wherever possible. The resort grows as much of their produce as possible onsite at the organic vegetable farm.


The fantasy of a romantic Maldivian wedding celebration unravels in an array of momentous experiences at Anantara Kihavah Villas. Whether you're here to celebrate your vows, honeymoon in paradise or honor an anniversary, your dreams will come true at this idyllic island resort. Write your own Wedding story at Anantara Kihavah.

Plan your ceremony on an exotic beach scene, as you cruise into blissful serenity, or perhaps you'd prefer to immerse yourselves in a kaleidoscope of Indian Ocean beauty. Anantara Kihavah offers Beach, Underwater, and Private Yacht Weddings, or their unique Wedding by Design which will recreate your own personal dream wedding scenario. Toast your love, whether new or decades old, with glasses of champagne that reflect hints of a fairytale sunset. Dine on a starlit beach, deserted island or in intimate ocean seclusion, as the resort team brings freshly caught seafood and discerning world flavours to conclude the rapturous celebrations.

Coral Adoption Programme

Beneath the shimmering waters that surround the island archipelago of the Maldives Baa Atoll region, a fragile world quietly rebuilds itself. Coral reefs, the most diverse type of marine habitat, protect the pristine beaches at Anantara Kihavah Villas and guard Kihavah Huravalhi Island's crystal-clear lagoon. They also support an astounding array of tropical fish, crustaceans and bizarre-looking molluscs. But for all of its beauty and apparent resilience, coral is a sensitive organism, vulnerable to extreme weather and sudden environmental changes. In June 2011, UNESCO declared the Baa Atoll a Biosphere Reserve.

In its commitment to protect the environment, Anantara Kihavah Villas has initiated the Coral Adoption Programme, a long-term plan designed to share learning experiences with guests, accelerate the regeneration of coral growth in the atoll reef, and ultimately ensure the future of this unique Maldivian destination.

During the construction of Anantara Kihavah Villas in November 2010, the resident Marine Biologist created coral gardens and attached coral to iron frames in the middle of the Over-Water Pool Villas, joining an arrangement that will resemble the in Anantara. Environmentally friendly and designed to promote the flow of water and nutrients, the frames are covered in sand to encourage coral to grow faster than it would naturally. This was done to prevent more damage to the Baa Atoll's fragile marine ecosystem.

Participate in reef creation and contribute to the ongoing conservation effort at Anantara Kihavah Villas by adopting a coral frame. Take part in the Coral Adoption Programme by transplanting coral onto your frame with the help of the resident Marine Biologist in the shallow waters of the lagoon. This area is shallow enough to perform the operation with a mask and snorkel. Once the coral has been attached, the frame is moved to its new permanent home in the centre of the resort's Over-Water Pool Villas.

Monitor the growth of your adopted coral frame online as Anantara's Marine Biologist uploads images on a regular basis. Or make a return trip to the resort to see how much the reef has grown. Observe it from the jetty or put on a pair of flippers and explore the lagoon by following an easy yet rewarding snorkelling trail.

Celebrate your Wedding in Anantara Kihavah's unique underwater venue - Salt..

Embrace your wedding dreams with a dazzling underwater fantasy, as the resort team embellishes your special day from start to finish with an unrivalled blend of ocean experiences. Encase yourselves in a whirlwind cocoon of romance as you descend to the underwater restaurant and wine cellar, to be encircled by a panorama of marine life swimming peacefully all around.
