Kihaa isn’t just a resort; here lies an unforgettable experience just waiting to be discovered. A friendly atmosphere, a breath of fresh air, far away from life’s stresses. What’s unique about Kihaa isn’t only the beauty of the island — it’s also the ultimate destination for ocean explorers due to its proximity to Hanifaru Bay, which is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Revel as the wonderful sounds of local drums create a symphony. The diving and snorkelling in the Maldives is like no other place on the planet.

Located at the incredible Kihaa, Ocean Dimensions offers a range of water-based courses and activities to allow novice and seasoned pros the chance to experience the wonders of the Indian Ocean, from scuba diving to snorkelling. Sandy white beaches and blue skies make everyone feel relaxed. Snorkelling with whale sharks and manta rays feels like a dream. Then a pod of playful dolphins swim into view.

Private dining on the beach under the stars is a special treat that will certainly impress, with moonlight, shooting stars and starlit skies. Awaken each morning to stunning views across sun-kissed, turquoise waters that are sure to enliven spirits and breathe new life into souls. Escape to an exotic world of endless possibility where first-class recreational facilities, adventure and relaxation are equally abundant.

The over-water spa is a serene sanctuary surrounded by soothing views and the gentle sounds of the ocean. Here guests can fully enjoy tranquillity and relaxation. Experience the healing, nourishing and comforting benefits of natural products such as coconut milk, coconut oil, avocados, seaweeds, spices and aloe vera.

Discover crystal-clear waters and marine life through a wide range of watersports such as jet ski, windsurfing and canoeing. Seek adventure and go on a new excursion every day — choose from the likes of a sunset cruise, dolphin safari or island hopping to further explore the culture and local life of the Maldives.

It’s much more than a holiday, it’s a chance to get away from the stresses to spend a night at Kihaa. An experience of a lifetime.
