Located in Baa Atoll, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Anantara Kihavah offers a tropical island getaway by day and a stargazer’s paradise by night. The private island’s remoteness allows it to be free from light pollution, while its location close to the equator provides stunning views of both the southern and northern skies.

SKY, Anantara Kihavah’s overwater observatory combined with a cocktail bar, brings the far reaches of the universe into focus. Guests can sip Champagne and other cocktails while gazing through some of the most powerful telescopes in the region and learning more about the night sky with the resort’s two resident SKY Gurus.

Gurus use their knowledge of the local Maldivian sky to reveal the intriguing stories behind the stars that make up the distant constellations. Gurus Zunoon Ahmed (known as Zunnu) and Ali Arushal (who goes by the name Shalli) are both natives of Baa Atoll and are not only captivating storytellers, but also have their own stories to tell.
