Anantara Kihavah Maldives Unveils Largest Private Pool Residences in the World

The luxury Maldivian resort has revealed its collection of seven newly renovated villas with private pools.

Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas has launched its collection of the largest private pool residences in the world with the renovation completion of the resort’s two-bedroom over-water pool residences. The $5 million+ project started in 2020 with the redesign of its two-, three-, and four-bedroom beach pool residences.

This exclusive collection of seven Maldivian accommodation experiences is the pinnacle of palatial seclusion, ideally suited for multi-generational vacations and larger group travel.

Two-Bedroom Over-Water Pool Residences

Perched over a crystal-calm lagoon and offering commanding views of the Indian Ocean, both units of Anantara Kihavah’s two-bedroom over-water pool residences were completed in early 2021.

Exemplifying the Maldivian experience, these overwater retreats are generously spaced at 1,500 square meters and feature expansive floor-to-ceiling windows guaranteeing endless water views. Outfitted with a professional working kitchen, living, and dining room, each ensuite bedroom features an individual outdoor living space. The infinity pool and shaded outdoor dining sala is the perfect hangout for shared leisure activities with family or friends.

With fitness and wellness a bigger focus than ever for the modern-day traveler, the redesign of these residences also saw the addition of a gym fully equipped with the latest in TechnoGym machinery and a couple’s spa treatment room. Both rooms are fitted with retractable blinds, allowing for ample sunlight by day and unfiltered stargazing at night.

While relaxing with a signature Anantara Spa massage, peek into the marine life just beneath the residence through the strategically placed glass panels underneath the plush spa treatment beds. Glass-bottomed whirlpool bathtubs have also been fitted in each bathroom, providing therapeutic massages and astounding underwater views even during bath time.

Two-, Three-, and Four-Bedroom Beach Pool Residences

At a commanding 2,000 square meters, the crown jewel in this collection is the four-bedroom beach pool residence. A connecting door set at the end of a lush garden pathway adjoins a standalone villa fitted with its own ensuite infinity pool and dining pavilion, along with the main wing of the residence.

With a spacious layout optimized for creating shared memories or moments of solitude, this four-bedroom sanctuary comfortably accommodates up to twelve people. The collection’s remaining beachfront hideaways include a two-bedroom option and a three-bedroom residence.

Cradled by lush foliage and bright bougainvillea accents, occasional sights of coconut trees jutting through floors or ceilings is testament to the resort’s commitment to preserving and incorporating the natural beauty of the island, while optimizing each residence’s space.

Like the overwater pool residences, each beachfront residence includes palm roofs and Balau decks. The newly extended swimming pools, measuring 20 meters by 6 meters for the four-bedroom retreat and 16 meters by 6 meters for the two- and three-bedroom residences, are now fitted with massage jets, and an outdoor Sala Thai provides shaded relief for lounging and dining.
