Anantara Kihavah Villas
A quick seaplane ride from the capital of Male lands you on a private island ringed by white sand, coconut palms, and a reef that harbors schools of tropical fish. Play castaway here, where frangipani-scented pool villas come with outdoor showers, private pools, and wooden decks that hover over a blue lagoon. Ask for an overwater villa, then dine at one of the world's only underwater restaurants while gazing out at the ocean floor. For a little adventure, a dive master leads expeditions to search for gentle whale sharks in parts of the Indian Ocean beyond the Baa Atoll.
