Hi Jodie & Annette!

I would like to once again extend my thanks and gratitude for all the exceptional and incredible work you and your team have provided.

Our holiday couldn’t have been more perfect! I think I took over 2000 photos – beautiful memories will stick with us forever.

We will definitely contact you again for all future holidays to the Maldives!

A massive thanks again, I will definitely be in touch.

All the best,

Jacqui, Sydney

We had a fabulous time. The villas were the best we've stayed in, and the bathrooms - wow! Our villa host was perfect and the management and staff are the right combination of attentiveness and discretion. We've recommended it to friends already. Thank you for helping us to have such a perfect holiday.
Our very best wishes

Jenny and Guy Reynolds, Sydney, Australia

Hi Annette

The resort was amazing thanks! The villa was beautiful, the food excellent and the staff super friendly and helpful. The weather was a bit iffy for us but it didn\\\'t really matter. We did lots of snorkelling and some scuba too. The kids loved biking round the island that was a real highlight for them. Our villa was near the restaurant as requested too. Nothing to really complain about except having to wait the whole Friday morning to get our seaplane after lunch to Anantara. We\\\'d recommend Anantara to others and thanks for your help too.

If you're looking for first class service you need not look any further than Jodie and her team. Jodie's detailed knowledge and connections in luxury accommodation in the Maldives ensured that any worries or concerns I had about booking the perfect honeymoon were removed. Jodie's attentiveness and dedication is surpassed only by the amazing trip she'll end up booking for you. Jodie understood exactly what I was looking for and together we selected the perfect honeymoon destination for my husband and I.

Anantara Kihavah was that tropical resort that you only see in magazines. Stunning, luxurious and indulgent are all words that come to mind. The service at Anantara Kihavah was outstanding and every detail had been considered. We stayed in an overwater bungalow which was extremely large and luxurious. The bathroom felt like your own spa oasis and off the bathroom was your own pool, followed by stairs which led you into the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. The many restaurants were unique and romantic and the dining by design was truly spectacular and a must. Dining at Anantara Kihavah was however quite expensive and although breakfast and lunch was included in our package the cost of dinner certainly made up for that. We went in October and unfortunately we were a little unlucky with the weather as it rained almost every day, usually only in the late afternoon and evenings, but it was always very hot. Despite the weather it was the magical and memorable honeymoon experience we were looking for.

Anantara Kihavah is located in the Baa Atoll which has a reputation as one of the best Atolls in the Maldives for marine life. The island itself has beautiful white sand that you sink into as you walk. The island is mid-sized so large enough to be given bikes to ride around on but not too large to lose that intimate island feel.

It is a fantastic resort for people who enjoy a variety of dining options, with a total of five restaurants, including an amazing underwater restaurant, Sea. Sea is an experience that shouldn't be missed. With only 12 tables, it has a very intimate feel with brightly coloured coral and fish surrounding the outside of the restaurant.

The main pool at Anantara Kihavah is one of the largest pools in the Maldives. It has the perfect position by the main restaurant and beautiful deck chairs separating the pool from the lagoon. The Villas at Anantara are luxurious with a more traditional feel to them. They all have private plunge pools and beautiful teak carved furniture, with brightly coloured cushions to decorate.

The service at Anantara Kihavah is exceptional and you are allocated a Villa Host or butler to look after your every need, from dinner reservations to clean towels or snorkelling advice. This really sets the service apart from other resorts that don't offer this.

Extraordinary Escapes Favourite Feature: One of the best places in the Maldives to watch the beautiful Maldivian sunset is Anantara's over-water Sunset bar, Sky. Our absolute favourite are the double seater lounges on the upper deck which have the best sunset view on the island.
