Saturday, 26 June 2010 21:46

The Republic of Maldives consists of 1,190 coral islands, only 200 of which are inhabited. Spread out over 26 natural atolls, each island is no more than 2m (7ft) above sea level. The Baa Atoll is situated on the west of the Maldives’ atoll chain and comprises 75 islands, with only a handful lived upon.

At Anantara Kihavah Villas, Maldives, the beauty of the sparkling ocean is yours alone. Located on the Baa Atoll, only 35 minutes by seaplane from Malè International Airport, this large, pear-shaped coral island promises an idyllic setting fringed with lush vegetation. Indulge in pool villas set right over the water, with excellent diving, a crystal-clear lagoon and beautiful nearby reef to explore.
