Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas has introduced a programme of night time experiences to allow guests to witness the underwater world and night sky using technology and expert guides.
The private charter aboard the 24m sailing yacht, Ocean Whisperer, includes an overnight journey on a quest for turtles, dolphins and night dives or snorkelling under the guidance of one of Kihavah’s resident diving instructors. Ocean Whisperer will sail to the local island of Kudarikilu for a night dive at Kudarikilu Corner. For snorkelers and divers alike, the house reef at Kihavah is also one of the best locations for night diving on the Baa Atoll – a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
The experience can be combined with a stay in an overwater villa at the resort and time with resident astronomer Shameem, in the Maldives’ only overwater observatory which houses the most powerful telescope in the region. Guests can also explore the world’s first underwater wine cellar and dine in SEA, an underwater restaurant.
