The Baa Atoll is an administrative division of the Maldives that consists of three separate natural atolls, namely the southern Maalhosmadulu Atoll (which is 42 kilometres long and 32 kilometres wide and consists of nine inhabited islands), the Fasduthere Atoll and the smaller Goifulhafehendhu Atoll.
Situated on the west of the Maldives’ atoll chain, Baa Atoll is made up of 75 tropical islands, of which 13 are inhabited only, with a population of over 11,000 people. The resort is located 35-minute flight by sea plane from Male, the capital of the Maldives.
Anantara Kihavah Villas is located in Baa atoll, 125 km north of Malé reached by a 35-minute scenic seaplane journey taking you to the doorstep of Hanifaru Bay, a UNESCO marine biosphere reserve.
Upon arrival into Malé International Airport, an airport representative will greet you and escort you to the Domestic Terminal, where they will assist you with your check in. All domestic transfers* are booked by the resort and charged on arrival during the resort check in. For a smooth transfer, please share your arrival and departure flight details with us at least 3 days before your arrival by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Roundtrip transfers are priced at USD 620++ per person, with 50% discount for children up to 11 years, and include the maximum baggage allowance of 20 kg per passenger. Hand luggage should not exceed 20”x 12”x7” in size or 5 kg in weight. Seaplanes operate during daylight hours only for arrivals and departures. Guests arriving in Male after 3:30 pm can travel with a domestic flight to Dharavandhoo Airport followed by a 30-minute speed boat trip to Anantara Kihavah Villas.
In June 2011, UNESCO declared the Baa Atoll a Biosphere Reserve. The diverse and fragile flora and fauna of the area are sensitive to the habits of human residents and visitors, and consequently Anantara Kihavah Villas operates as an eco-conscious beach resort in the Maldives.
In our commitment to help protect the environment we have initiated the Coral Adoption Programme; a long term plan designed to accelerate the regeneration of coral growth in the atoll reef, and ultimately ensure the future of our unique Maldivian destination.
Guests are invited to take part in the Coral Adoption Programme by transplanting coral fragments onto metal frames with the help of the resident Marine Biologist. Once the coral has been attached, the frame is moved to its new permanent home in the centre of the resort’s Over Water Pool Villas. The growth of the adopted coral frames can be monitored online, as Anantara’s Marine Biologist uploads images every three months.
