A luxurious sanctuary suspended within boundless blue horizons, this spectacular new resort is a haven of sumptuous pool villas and innovative underwater dining.

Incredibly spacious, all Anantara's villas are equipped with up-to-date technology, are freshly decorated with rich Thai silks and elegant dark wood, and boast their own huge infinity-edge pool. Set on their own stretch of stunning white sands, beach villas have an amazing outdoor bathroom with a sunken tub set inside a shallow pool while over-water villas seem immersed in the translucent lagoon; steps lead straight down to the lapping waters and glass-bottom bathtubs glimpse the fish beneath. Relaxing on the large swinging daybed or on hammocks suspended over the water you'll feel totally at one with the ocean.

Anantara Kihavah offers plenty of extra special touches. A soothing foot massage from your personal villa host greets your arrival and as you sit down to glorious views at breakfast you'll be offered champagne and an iPad to catch up with the news. Superb dining features a unique underwater restaurant perched right on the coral reef drop-off, and excellent snorkelling and diving provides snorkel trips guided by a marine biologist and novice dive courses for adults and children.
