Anantara Kihavah enhances iconic overwater pool villas

The iconic Over Water Pool Villas at Anantara Kihavah has long been regarded as central to the quintessential Maldivian experience. Now with the completion of a multi-million-dollar refurbishment, this experience has been elevated to a whole new level of secluded luxury, with more space, style and comfort.

Featuring smart technology, extra home comforts and a stylishly elegant new design concept, the 267sqm hideaways incorporate lighter-coloured wood and local accent pieces, with all new furniture, fittings and materials chosen to reflect the aesthetic and sustainable qualities of the regions indigenous culture. 

Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors offer unhindered ocean views, while the glass-bottomed bathtubs allow you to watch fish swim beneath you as you bathe in blissful serenity. The extended decks feature a new sunken private lounge, with over-water hammocks having also been expanded to create more comfort and even more uniquely Maldivian photo opportunities. The highly anticipated transformation also introduces an addition to Anantara Kihavah’s villa collection – the One Bedroom Family Over Water Pool Villas. 

Atelier Pod, the award-winning international architecture and interior design studio, was chosen to lead the transformation project. Following a design concept that aims to infuse a wooden cabin aesthetic using local materials, the concept revolves around creating a pure, simple, and adventurous ambience with futuristic shapes and clean lines. 

Inside, the design and style of the living space have been given a fresh yet refined ambience with the addition of accent pieces from the local Thuladoo island, innovative technology, and extra home comforts distinguished by their traditional style and unique design. With a focus on comfort and convenience, the hideaways still feature king-size beds and a walk-in dressing room, but the overall interiors have been given an airier vibe with lighter-coloured wood. When it comes to breathtaking views, it’s hard to beat the mesmerising experience of watching fish swim beneath you as you bathe in a glass-bottomed soaking bathtub.  

“We want to continue delivering the timeless luxury for which Anantara Kihavah is known for,” said Sjefke Jansen, General Manager of Anantara Kihavah. “Our iconic Over Water Pool Villas have been refreshed to elevate the overall guest experience, transforming them into elegant spaces of sophistication, while remaining faithful to the Maldivian heritage and the beauty of the natural surroundings.”

A personal Villa Host further enhances the experience of pampered seclusion, making the refreshed Over Water Pool Villas at Anantara Kihavah the perfect haven for love-struck couples, whether on a romantic break, honeymoon, or anniversary vacation, as well as for small families on holiday.
