Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas offers underwater weddings
At Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas, romance is anything but ordinary. A private island with only 80 villas dotting lush grounds, exclusivity is assured. A dedicated wedding planner from first thoughts to final details ensures your dream wedding comes to life in every way
Make a statement with an underwater wedding. Your altar is a coral bed, your rings presented in a white shell. Exchange vows with a dive-certified minister your witness, each moment captured by our underwater photographer. Adopt a coral to memorialise the occasion, returning on an anniversary to see how it blooms.
Your journey together back on land begins with professional hair styling and make-up for the bride. Dine on barbecued lobster prepared by your chef for the evening, and served by the butler on a candlelit stretch of beach.
Retiring to your villa, your Slumber Guru experience begins with a soak in essential oils in a candlelit bath. Unwind side by side with a lavender oil massage, then fall into the deepest of sleeps. Waking up the next morning, Champagne breakfast is served in bed. The perfect beginning of forever unfolds in paradise.
At Anantara Kihavah, wedding stages are limited only by your imagination. For those who wish to keep their feet on dry land, exchange vows in Kihavah’s signature underwater venue SEA as fish swim past floor-to-ceiling glass, wed on a palm-fringed beach at the resort, on a deserted island at sunset, in front of family on a private yacht, or over water in a private residence.
Anantara Kihavah offers the luxury of solitude against the world’s most stunning backdrop. Natural materials and motifs inspired by Maldivian heritage fuse to create laid-back luxury. With underwater dining, overwater stargazing, and swimming with mantas and turtles, photo ops abound in dazzling Indian Ocean hues.
Anantara Kihavah is just 35 minutes by seaplane from the main Velana International Airport. Following the scenic flight, guests arrive to a picture-perfect setting surrounded by the jewel-coloured waters and uninhabited islands of the majestic Indian Ocean.
Comprising 75 one-bedroom villas, four two-bedroom residences and a three-bedroom residence, each hideaway boasts large personal infinity-edge pools, dining pavilions, expansive wooden sundecks and ample lounging areas complete with swinging daybeds, hammocks and sun loungers. All villas feature his and hers walk-in wardrobes, rain showers, outdoor showers and over-sized bathtubs big enough for two. Sunken glass bottom bathtubs in the over water villas offer a mesmerising view of the sparkling ocean, both below and beyond the adjacent infinity-edge pool.
