ACTIVITIES

The setting is tranquil, but recreation and fun are always close by. Every day, Anantara features a range of organised and do-it-yourself activities in the gorgeous surrounds of our resort.

Beach Sports:
String up the nets and break out the suntan lotion for a full range of beach sports and activities. Feel the sand between your toes as you ground the perfect spike in a beach volleyball tournament or knock a winning birdie over the badminton net. For a leisurely afternoon, bowl a set of pétanque or challenge your partner to a table tennis match.

Cooking Class:
Whether you're eager to learn the secrets of the traditional Maldivian huni havaadhu curry or to grill the fresh tuna you caught this afternoon, the professional chefs at Plates will be pleased to take you under their wings and reveal a few kitchen tips and secrets. Just let us know what piques your culinary curiosity and our chefs will design a cooking lesson suited to your tastes.

Fitness:
With treadmills, free weights, bicycles and other strength-training and cardio equipment, you can keep up your fitness routine, even on holiday. Borrow an iPod filled with adrenaline-pumping workout tunes, or catch up with the news or the latest HBO movies while you burn some serious calories.

Kihavah Kids Club:
Open for children from the ages of 3 to 12, the Kihavah Kids Club has a full range of fun and enriching activities to keep young guests occupied. With their very own Kid's Club House, our youngest guests will make new friends and enjoy their holiday just as much as their parents. Under the supervision of the Kids' Coordinator, children can take part in beach games, arts and crafts and an array of other activities to ensure they're always having fun - even when you're spending the afternoon at the spa or taking a diving lesson. Childcare services are also available.

Library and Business Centre:
A quiet spot to curl up with your favourite book or magazine. Curious about a strange blue fish you saw on your snorkelling excursion? Check out the local interest section for background on the island's fauna, flora, history and culture. The library also provides computers and high-speed wireless internet connection so you can keep up with business or catch up with friends.

Meeting Facilities:
For meetings that surpass all expectations, schedule your next business retreat at Anantara Kihavah Villas. The four large meeting rooms feature a break-out pantry, Wi-Fi internet and a full range of audio visual equipment. The Business Centre staff is always on hand to smooth out the details.

Swimming:
Bask on the edge of infinity beside an outdoor pool that seems to meld into the ocean horizon. More than just a place to swim a few laps, the Kihavah pool is a true refuge of relaxation. The Sunshine Butlers are on hand to cater to your every wish, from fresh fruit juices to cold towels, five-minute back massages and sunglasses cleaning. Find your personal soundtrack by borrowing one of the pool's iPods: from jazz to hip hop, each colour is loaded with a different style of music.

Tennis:
Fine tune your forehand volley on the resort's tennis courts. Work up a sweat with a morning game of doubles and cool off with a jump in the pool and the rehydration of a freshly-squeezed tropical fruit juice.

Yoga:
Draw inspiration from the beauty of your island surroundings with guided sessions in tranquil yoga. Join a group lesson or arrange for a private session to perfect your warrior pose. You can also rediscover your inner harmony with gentle guided meditation and deep breathing exercises.

Our limitless horizon of water inspires most guests to get their feet wet. Anantara Kihavah offers a range of activities to get you on, in and under the water, whether sailing a boat, casting a fishing line or exploring a long-lost shipwreck or brilliant reefs 30 metres below the sea.

Big Game Fishing:
Cast it out and reel it on in - you've probably been fishing before, but never in a setting like this. Take a half-day excursion on our speedboat to reap the bounty of the plentiful Indian Ocean and take part in a local past-time. Our expert guides will show you how to reel in some of the sea's thriving sailfish, wahoo, tuna, mahi mahi and giant trevally. Bring your catch back with you and our chefs will be happy to prepare it as you wish, or teach you how to cook it yourself, for a uniquely do-it-yourself seafood supper.

Canoeing:
Grab your most trusted paddling partner and take out one of our canoes for an afternoon spin on the lagoon. Bring a picnic basket along and find a secluded spot in the sand for private lunch, or work on your tan as you glide over the waters and explore the island from afar.

Dive Centre and Marine Lab:
A long-time magnet for scuba divers and snorkellers alike, the Maldives are home to a magnificent array of wildlife. A trip below the surface reveals an explosion of colour, from tropical fish to coral gardens. The Maldives are the only habitat where whale sharks, the largest fish in the world, appear all year round. You are likely to encounter these magnificent creatures up close at the protected dive site, just a short boat trip from the resort. Whatever your level of experience, Anantara's Dive Centre will make you feel at home under the waves. Enrol in a PADI certification course to earn a license recognised internationally, opening up a whole new world for your discovery. Or, for a leisurely afternoon of wildlife exploration, sign up for a Bubblemaker intro course. For more experienced divers, Anantara offers access and transport to a number of nearby reefs. Discuss with the dive master to customise your ideal dive excursion.

Orientation Dives:
All divers at the Anantara Dive Centre require an orientation dive, unless you have logged a dive within the last three months in the Maldives. The orientation dive consists of a dive on our nearby house reef or another local dive site with an instructor who will get you to demonstrate basic diving skills. After completion, you're ready to move on to more advanced dives or courses, depending on your level and certifications.

PADI Diving Courses:
PADI, the Professional Association of Diving Instructors, is the largest and most well-respected diving association in the world. PADI instructors are well-trained and very knowledgeable, so you will always be in safe hands. Anantara's Dive Centre offers a number of PADI courses, from Open Water Diver certification for novices all the way to Rescue Diver for scuba experts. The Dive Centre will do their best to find a programme and instructor that fits your experience and goals. Small class sizes mean safe, comfortable and enjoyable lessons and no one could ask for a better or more beautiful classroom than the great Indian Ocean.

Kayaking:
Enjoy a tranquil morning of gliding around the lagoon, or pick up the speed and find a fun new way to get your afternoon workout. Sit-atop kayaks, whether tandem or solo, transparent or solid, are one of the best ways to experience the beauty of our Maldivian paradise at your own pace. Explore secluded beaches and hidden lagoons, or simply drift over the clear blue waters gazing at the marine life teeming below.

Sailing:
Sailing has long been an integral part of the sea-faring culture of the Maldives. At Anantara, we invite you to take the once-in-a-lifetime chance to set sail in one of the world's most stunning marine destinations aboard a graceful catamarans or our private yacht. Whether you are a sea-hardened sailing expert, ready to embark on a solo voyage into the horizon, or a novice landlubber, eager to soak up the sun and the sights and leave the steering to the skipper, we can customise an excursion suited to your tastes.

Snorkelling:
Play among the manta rays or watch a clownfish darting through his sea anemone. Spot a whale shark lurking in the shallows. Borrow a pair of fins and a snorkel to get up close to the exotic aquatic life of the Maldives without the weight of a scuba tank. The tranquil, crystal clear waters of the island offer unrivalled opportunities for fish viewing.

Windsurfing:
Skip along the glassy surface of the ocean, the breeze whipping through your hair, your heart pounding. Windsurfing is the closest you can get to flying, with you feet still planted firmly on the ground - or rather, on the water! With all the power of the wind behind you, and your expert instructors showing you the way, you'll be skimming across the mirror-like surface of the lagoon in no time.

FACILITIES

Spa

Underwater Dining
Sea.Fire. Salt.Sky.
Our signature Sea.Fire.Salt.Sky. dining complex is a one-of-a-kind over and under water dining concept, exclusive to Anantara Kihavah Villas. Imagine roast lamb with rosemary grilled on a Himalayan salt block, bringing an inventive touch and rich taste sensations to your palate.

Experience the cuisine gourmets relish, whether from the degustation menus paired with premium wines, or classic creations enhanced by the culinary genius of our Master Chef. With service to match a superb culinary repertoire and an atmosphere of relaxed refinement, dining in this unforgettable aquatic setting promises a definite island highlight. Fire. Prepare yourself for sizzling theatrics in the teppanyaki lounge, as our talented chefs dazzle you with their acrobatic cooking skills. Admire the show as the freshest local rock lobster, best grain fed Japanese beef or catch of the day are grilled to your personal preference. Salt. An experience beyond compare. Picture a tender and juicy Red Snapper infused with lemongrass, ginger and coursed black pepper, baking to perfection before your eyes on a Himalayan salt block, to deliver a unique depth and complexity of flavour. Sky. Climb to the centre of conviviality and discover a rooftop bar with breathtaking island views over the Baa Atoll. Savour succulent cuisine presented on tempting skewers paired with a refreshing juice, cool beer or fine wine, any time of day. Then as a romantic evening unfolds, soak up an inviting ambience of mellow music as you unwind with exquisite cocktails, spirits and liqueurs.

For connoisseurs desiring local gourmet flair, Plates also offers a selection of Maldivian dishes - a diverse and tantalising cuisine full of fresh seafood and bold aromas.

Manzaru Pool Bar and Restaurant
Our Sunshine Butlers are always on hand with a fruit skewer or cold towel to cool you down. By day our swim-up pool bar serves exotic juices and tropical cocktails, allowing you to sip the nectar of the islands from the water's cool embrace, before we tempt you with casual lunches of crisp salads and traditional pastas served poolside. By night Manzaru transforms into a leisurely Italian delice, where our Italian Chef unravels voyages of culinary discovery, from regional specialties skillfully crafted from traditional ingredients, to connoisseur olive oil tasting sessions.

Dining By Design
This signature Anantara experience is not to be missed. Simply select your dream location, whether a barbecue for two on the beach, an eclectic feast on the boardwalk, or a picnic in a palm grove, and our dedicated Anantara team of chefs and butlers will take care of everything else.
