Kihaad Maldives Baa atoll

Our Opinion
Kihaad Maldives has only 124 rooms on a good-sized island, featuring some of the finest stretches of white sandy beach you will find anywhere. The villas are modern but use plenty of natural materials and still retain a sense of the Maldives. They are also spacious, and even the entry-level Reserve Beach Villas will accommodate a family of four, while the executive suites are superb and surely amongst the best value two-bedroom options in the Maldives.

Kihaad boasts good facilities and a house reef with an abundance of sea life. Its biggest selling point, however, is its location - right next to the famous Hanifaru Bay in Baa Atoll, a Manta Ray feeding station that can attract dozens of rays. Expect to spend some time on the regular snorkelling trips and getting to know the very friendly dive centre staff.

As a resort, Kihaad doesn't quite reach the heights of some five star AI offerings such as Moofushi or LUX, but for value-for-money, for ticking a lot of boxes, and above all for its fabulous location, this four star plus Kihaad gets a spot on our recommended list!

Kihaad Maldives nestles on its own coconut-shaped island (600 metres long), complete with lush green vegetation, long white beaches and an adjacent house reef.

Whilst the resort offers 124 spacious, private villas and whole range of natural facilities, the majority of the island remains untouched in its pristine natural state.

'Kihaad' is from the local Dhivehi language and means 'young coconut island'. Its 1,200m beach around the island is a haven of peace, tranquility and serenity. Crystal clear, shallow turquoise waters surround the island and stretch as far as the eye can see. The island’s uniquely rich and dense vegetation instills a feeling of harmony and being at one with nature. You will arrive on the island via a domestic flight from the international airport at Male and a 10-minute speedboat ride.

Just announced: as of 22/01/16, Kihaad will operate on "Island Time", one hour ahead of Male time.
