It's the very definition of a dream-worthy Maldivian resort: an overwater villa with a thatched roof and a swimming pool of its own. But the idea of this tropical getaway is getting even more exciting at Anantara Kihavah, which has just given a multimillion-dollar facelift to its overwater pool villas.
With 267 square metres of real estate, the sprawling sanctuaries feature brand new furniture, cutting-edge technology and glass-bottomed bathtubs.
Watch the colourful marine life beneath your villa as you enjoy a blissful bathing ritual, or slide open the floor-to-ceiling glass doors and step on to your private deck, where there's no dearth of inviting nooks to relax in - from a new sunken lounge to "overwater" hammocks. Want to get even more close to the marine world?
Book a table at the resort's underwater Sea restaurant which - while not new - offers a dining experience like nowhere else, thanks to glass walls with views of the colourful sea creatures swimming past. anantara.com
