Here you will meet Little Hermie and his friends Mishell, Cookie Crab, Captain Red Claw and many more as we explore everything there is to do on our island.

  • ACTIVITIES & EXCURSION

    For a memorable family night, our private alfresco cinema screenings amidst the coconut palms come with a sofa big enough for the whole family. Choose your film in advance from family friendly favourites, golden oldies to the most recent blockbusters and watch them together on a big screen with popcorn, chocolate dipped strawberries and more! 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. Enjoy a tranquil morning of gliding around the lagoon, or pick up the speed and find a fun new way to get your afternoon workout. Sit-atop kayaks, whether tandem or solo, transparent or solid, are one of the best ways to experience the beauty of our Maldivian paradise at your own pace. Explore secluded beaches and hidden lagoons, or simply drift over the clear blue waters gazing at the marine life teeming below. Sailing has long been an integral part of the sea-faring culture of the Maldives. At Anantara, we invite you to take the once-in-a-lifetime chance to set sail in one of the world's most stunning marine destinations aboard a graceful catamarans or our private yacht. Whether you are a sea-hardened sailing expert, ready to embark on a solo voyage into the horizon, or a novice landlubber, eager to soak up the sun and the sights and leave the steering to the skipper, we can customize an excursion suited to your tastes.
    Play among the manta rays or watch a clownfish darting through his sea anemone. Spot a whale shark lurking in the shallows. Borrow a pair of fins and a snorkel to get up close to the exotic aquatic life of the Maldives without the weight of a scuba tank. The tranquil, crystal clear waters of the island offer unrivaled opportunities for fish viewing. Skip along the glassy surface of the ocean, the breeze whipping through your hair, your heart pounding. Windsurfing is the closest you can get to flying, with you feet still planted firmly on the ground - or rather, on the water! With all the power of the wind behind you, and your expert instructors showing you the way, you'll be skimming across the mirror-like surface of the lagoon in no time. Grab your most trusted paddling partner and take out one of our canoes for an afternoon spin on the lagoon. Bring a picnic basket along and find a secluded spot in the sand for private lunch, or work on your tan as you glide over the waters and explore the island from afar. Cast it out and reel it on in - you've probably been fishing before, but never in a setting like this. Take a half-day excursion on our speedboat to reap the bounty of the plentiful Indian Ocean and take part in a local past-time. Our expert guides will show you how to reel in some of the sea's thriving sailfish, wahoo, tuna, mahi mahi and giant trevally. Bring your catch back with you and our chefs will be happy to prepare it as you wish, or teach you how to cook it yourself, for a uniquely do-it-yourself seafood supper. PADI, the Professional Association of Diving Instructors, is the largest and most well-respected diving association in the world. PADI instructors are well-trained and very knowledgeable, so you will always be in safe hands. Anantara's Dive Centre offers a number of PADI courses, from Open Water Diver certification for novices all the way to Rescue Diver for scuba experts. The Dive Centre will do their best to find a programme and instructor that fits your experience and goals. Small class sizes mean safe, comfortable and enjoyable lessons and no one could ask for a better or more beautiful classroom than the great Indian Ocean. String up the nets and break out the suntan lotion for a full range of beach sports and activities. Feel the sand between your toes as you ground the perfect spike in a beach volleyball tournament or knock a winning birdie over the badminton net. For a leisurely afternoon, bowl a set of pétanque or challenge your partner to a table tennis match. Whether you're eager to learn the secrets of the traditional Maldivian huni havaadhu curry or to grill the fresh tuna you caught this afternoon, the professional chefs at Plates will be pleased to take you under their wings and reveal a few kitchen tips and secrets. Just let us know what piques your culinary curiosity and our chefs will design a cooking lesson suited to your tastes. Draw inspiration from the beauty of your island surroundings with guided sessions in tranquil yoga. Join a group lesson or arrange for a private session to perfect your warrior pose. You can also rediscover your inner harmony with gentle guided meditation and deep breathing exercises.
    Fine tune your forehand volley on the resort's tennis courts. Work up a sweat with a morning game of doubles and cool off with a jump in the pool and the re-hydration of a freshly-squeezed tropical fruit juice. Bask on the edge of infinity beside an outdoor pool that seems to meld into the ocean horizon. More than just a place to swim a few laps, the Kihavah pool is a true refuge of relaxation. The Sunshine Butlers are on hand to cater to your every wish, from fresh fruit juices to cold towels, five-minute back massages and sunglasses cleaning. Find your personal soundtrack by borrowing one of the pool's iPods: from jazz to hip hop, each colour is loaded with a different style of music.
