Kiha Beach is your luxury hotel where you discover the true meaning of ‘island life’. We are only a 20 mins flight away from the Maldives capital. On this hidden emerald gem in Baa atoll, the endless blue waters around are the 7th richest biodiversity region in the world. Within these waters, hide the iconic green turtles. When you see one of these protected beauties, you can’t help but smile. Manta rays visit our atoll to indulge on abundant planktons. Whale Sharks annually gather to breed, 2 km from your hotel room! Dharavandhoo’s ‘island life’ is simple but exemplary for the way we interact with our environment.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband and I just visited Maldives and we stayed at Kiha Beach. From the moment I made the booking, they responded with all the relevant information as well as documents that we needed. Our transportation between the islands were arranged and everything was perfect.
Salim fetched us at the airport and throughout our stay, transported us where ever we had to go. He went out of his way for everyone at the guesthouse, always with a warm smile.
On our arrival Ana welcomed us with ice cold refreshments and wet cloths. She organised all our activities , had our PCR test arranged upfront. She goes out of her way to ensure that every guest get the most value of their time there.
My husband forgot his purse in a taxi in Male, and while trying to get it back, Mr Nahaal , the owner, told him to leave it to him. The next morning we had it back. Such honesty and warm hearted care, is one of the things that we will always remember.

All the staff are professional, highly skilled and very friendly. Kind to the point that it touches your heart. None of their efforts goes unnoticed and I would like to thank everyone of them, Subash Limbu the chef , we enjoyed every meal. Ranga the kitchen captain for going out of his way that we had what ever we needed and also knowing what we liked in such a short while. Nazir also attended to our every need.

Raju and Rabi , thanks for a spotless clean room every day. It is so nice to know that you can trust everyone with your possessions.

Just as excellent as all the other staff, there is Mihad , the guide. He made sure that every activity were unforgettable. He is highly skilled with a great personality making him a must for Kiha Beach. Thank you so much for all the help, the tips and all of your funny stories.

Kiha Beach made a lasting impression on us, which we will definitely recommend to anyone we know.

From great staff, good food a beautiful view and awesome activities, the location of the guesthouse is perfect, we didnt have problems communicating(all staff speaks fluent English) and we were able to experience the culture of the local people. Kiha treated us with traditional food as well as the Bodu Beru dancers. That was so special.

Thanks once again for everything special , we will definitely be back.

Amazing staff - super friendly, very personal service, and very flexible making it a stress free and very enjoyable visit. Small hotel, away from crowds and mass tourism - spacious room with postcard perfect beach/sea view, really comfy beds and pillows, great food, beach BBQ at the hotel, peaceful location, wonderful spa (Balinese massage recommended), snorkelling house reef, watersports, diving around the island/nearby. Watching pods of dolphins cruise by while eating breakfast or lunch. Seeing lots of amazing underwater life - Manta rays, turtles, Eagle rays, 4 species of sharks...

Stayed here for 6 nights then moved to Kihaamaldives resort on near island then back for one night. Lovely big rooms with A/C and fan and balcony looking onto beach. Fabulous staff. To be honest, if you can do without alcohol and some of the facilities, you will enjoy a great hotel at 1/3 to 1/2 the price of the Khiaamalkdives resort. Lovely beach steps away, and reef only a few metres out (at least 50-80 m at Kihaa).
food was at least as good as the resort but a bit more limited, I liked two fried eggs at breakfast and every morning without ordering it was in front of me before I could finish fruit. Reception outstanding, booking my flight from Male (at least $100 cheaper that the resort price), arranged for me to get to pharmacy liased with resort about boat ride etc. Brilliant long pool so could have a good swim, mosquito coils near tables at night (none at the resort). If I ever overslept. a phone call would ensure I did not miss breakfast - and stayed until I finished)
For me the real bonus was that the hotel has their own boat with dive master. Lovely boat with room for 10 and good padded seats. At Kihaa maldives the snorkelling boat carried over 25, a local dohni so more spartan and difficult to keep up with dive master. The hotel boat will also take to further reefs a a small extra charge where we saw Turtles, rays, sharks and dolphins (the nearer reef is also good). On the last day reception kept phoning to see if Manta rays were in the bay and got me there (over 29 there) and back in time for my evening flight. BRILLIANT

Rooms very ideal for couple like us. The hotel is just in front of a clean white sandy beach!!

Wifi is a bit slow but not a big deal for us. Main restaurant area is facing the ocean so every meal times you get to enjoy the scenery. And oooh! You can see some dolphins passing by also!

Generally its safe to stay here. Not much people crowding the beach area. They are the last property on the left side of the island so its really peaceful and calming you can just lie down anywhere at the bikini beach.

Buffet is a bit limited but very tasty. Service however was splendid. All of them are always smiling!! Simple gesture but it really made us feel home and well taken cared of.

Will definitely recommend this hotel!

Kiha beach is one of the best experiences i ever had among hotels and guesthouse ive been to. We've spent there 2 weeks with my gf and i can say that everything was so pleasant, from the lovely owner and his nice kois pool to the kindness of the whole staff, helpful and always smiling, the rooms clean and modern, the white beach and those leaning coconut trees with the best spot for snorkling close to colorful fish in the whole island. Also the view from the swimming pool on the sea... no need to stay in one of those 2000$/night resorts to experiencea magical stay! They took care of everything from covid tests to domestic flights. If you have a chance to discover Baa Atoll and Daharavandhoo island and its locals don't miss Kiha Beach!!!

Their service is superb!! Communication was on point as soon as you make the booking with them. This made us understand more what to expect from our trip which is really nice. All staff are friendly, smiling and responsive to all our requests. Food is nice and varied but just don’t expect too much as this is only a small hotel. Our excursion was lovely and we had a lot of fun. Excursion staff always look after us making sure everything is alright. Going on sandbank and doing snorkeling is what we loved the most on our trips. If you don’t want to go out for a boat trip, its not a problem coz there’s abundant marine life on their house reef and nice bikini beach in front of the hotel.
All in all our holiday has never been this good! Thank you Kiha Beach staff!
PS. You can check their Instagram and Facebook account, they run special promos there

Hi there. I and my husband had a vacation in the Kiha Beach from the16th to 26th February 2022. At the first meeting at the enter of the hotel, we was treated to a sweet cocktail and a cold, wet towel. That was perfect combination for us, because of exhausting almost 15 hours way from Ukraine to the island.
The "pros":
*eco concept of the hotel
*the fabulous ocean in 10 meters from the hotel
*healthy and really delicious food
*romantic atmosphere. For example, the staff organized the several dinners at the tables on the ocean beach by the light of a torch
*a clean and fresh room: a clean beddings, clean cups, the furnitures were in good condition
But the most brilliant "pros" is the personnel. Especially, the girls who works at the reception desk. They are so nice, professional, kind and friendly. They provide the best service !
Thank you a lot to all personnel of this "paradise" on the Earth! You are the best!

Didn’t manage to stay in the hotel for our holiday even though we booked for it. But the govt decided not to open inhabited islands for a while longer. But the kiha beach staff didn’t disappoint. They offered all alternatives and were very prompt in their responses. In tough times this is what customer service means , being flexible and always staying on top of your A-game. Special mention of thanks to Analyn and Sara who were helpful all the time with email responses , bookings etc. Analyn took care of our domestic flight transfers from male to Dharavandhoo by sea plane even though the main airport of Dharavandhoo was closed. All in all a great trip and I look forward to actually staying at the kiha beach next time I come to the island.

Excellent service from the whole team & Ali is so passionate in every area he is in. Highly Recommend to go Hanifaru bay snorkel with the mantas with KIHA beach’s speed boat as time is important to catch the mantas in time. They are the nearest hotel to Hanifaru bay. Ali is so warm & helpful & made our whole stay so comfortable & we feel at home. Communicating to the reservations team when I booked this hotel was a very good help because I asked many detailed questions. Thanks Roni, Resanne & Winda! Our sea view room was very nice to wake up to! Right in front of the hotel, there’s a shaded area to chill at the deck chairs with the breeze blowing & relaxing. Food cooked by Chef was delicious as I ordered ala carte due to our personal eating habits which covers more carbo like rice & noodles. Snorkelling right in front of KIHA beach was good & also, love their salt water swimming pool for a dip and looking out to the beach. Enjoyed our stay very much from 3 August to 8 August 2023.

We recently stayed here for 10 days. The place is amazing. The staff a very helpfull and will do anything for you. We came here in the low season to sea the mantas and whale sharks. The arange the trips and put you on call for manra watch. Normally afternoon. The manager was fantastic. A wealth of knowledge and even came on the boat trips. We did several trips and all were great. They have a go pro 10 that you can hire and snorkling gear to. The house reef is amazing. Easy to snorkle. The food was also great although sometimes a little spicy. But if you speak to them they will sort food out. I was craving chips one night and i had a plate cooked for me. The rooms are good. Beds really comfy. Air con works well. Meal timings are good.
I would recomend getting in touch with them direct as you get better rated and book well in advance. You can pay when you arrive. I would avoid using credit card to pay as thete is a 3.5 % charge. Cash is always good. Us dollar. The maldives currency is 1 dollat to 15 of the maldives. Most shops take US dollar but you get back local currency. I strongly recomend this hotel. Many thanks to all of the staff for making our stay great.
