Staying on the water does not always mean being on board a cruise, but a resort. In the Maldives, Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas presents a collection of the largest residences on water in the world when completing the renovation of residences with a pool overlooking the Indian Ocean.
The world is more complex, but you can start with the basics. See how, in the Investor’s Manual
These are retreats on water with more than 1,500 square meters, glass walls that guarantee the view of the turquoise waters and the stars at night. Each residence has a professional kitchen, living and dining room, two bedrooms with outdoor seating and an infinity pool.
In addition, the residences have glass-bottom whirlpools, providing relaxation and views of marine life. Guests also have a 24-hour concierge service, in addition to a sommelier and private chef.
For those looking for wellness experiences, the residences have their own spa treatment room and a gym. Like the hot tubs, under the spa treatment beds, glass panels were also installed to observe the fauna.
The architecture and decoration of the Villas remains faithful to the Maldivian heritage. Thus, the residences are covered with thatched roofs of Kajan palm and Balau wood flooring on the external deck, accompanied by hammocks suspended over the water. The pools are decorated with natural Sukabumhi stone tiles.
The resort offers more than 30 services that include diving, island excursions, fishing, kayaking, windsurfing, star gazing at a planetarium over the water, wine tasting, cooking classes and yoga.
For a complete aquatic experience, the resort has the first underwater winery and one of the few underwater restaurants in the world, where dining is possible surrounded by marine life.
Daily rates start at 39 thousand reais for 4 adults and 4 children or 6 adults per Villa. Access to the resort is via a 35-minute flight from Velana International Airport.
