Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas
Kihavah Huravalhi Island, Maldives
We all love a world class spa. What do we need to know about yours?
Cross the lagoon by meandering boardwalk, entering a soaring tropical pavilion fragrant with coconut and lime. An overwater haven of tranquillity and sweeping ocean views, the award-winning Anantara Spa offers healing in unparalleled surroundings.
Six standalone treatment suites lie perched over the lagoon. Bedecked in turquoise, white and sun-baked timber, each suite features hexagonal viewing panels below the treatment beds through which to observe the lagoon’s inhabitants, with baby pufferfish swimming by. Soak in the calm of ocean waves with a milky petal-strewn tub for two. Enjoy the magic of synchronised movement as two therapists massage you with warm essential oils. Then take in the sunset from the relaxation pavilion after a steam or soak in the oceanfront plunge pool.

Any insider tips
Showing up 30 minutes before your treatment time allows you to relax and use the steam room (to start release tension) before your treatment starts. A nice add on after a massage for example would be: Anantara Maldivian Signature Bath (30 minutes). Treat your skin to a smooth, shimmering glow as you relax in the soothing caress of a coconut and peppermint bath.
If you are coming for a facial, allow enough time to do a Skinlab before your treatment starts.
We also offer Ayurveda and Physiotherapy treatments. We have blacktip sharks surrounding the spa that the guest can take amazing photos with; some afternoons we can see dolphins from the relaxation deck.
