It is impossible for us to benchmark the Anantara Kihavah against any other Maldivian resort as this was our first time to the Maldives. What I can say, is that in spite of being the most expensive holiday we have taken as a family, that it did not disappoint in any way. We were staying in a Family Beach villa over the Easter period. The accommodation was superb with the beach only meters away. The food in all the restaurants was excellent, and whether you were ordering Burgers, Asian specialities or Italian; everything was fabulous. But as others have mentioned a special mention should go to the buffet breakfast which was sumptuous beyond belief. But what really made the experience special was the quality of staff. Wrong to single anybody in particular out as they were all excellent but we will anyway. So special regards to Maria at Plates and Benji at Sky. My son did his Junior Open Water Diver certification whilst we were there and once again, the staff at Elements Dive Centre were superb with special thanks to Nejk who trained my son. If snorkeling is your bag rather than diving then the island reef between the Dive Centre and Spa is where you want to be. The coral is somewhat bleached but the variety of fish and marine life on display was second to none. A final mention for Lionel the Resort Manager. His staff are a credit to him and he is out and about every day engaging with guests. If I had to find a criticism then it would be that the beer from the bars was never quite cold enough for my taste. But that is it as far as criticism goes. The Anantara Kihavah has set a bar for our future holidays that will be very hard to beat.
