While it might not have a shell-shaped pool, the Anantara Kihavah villa resort has just been named the most Instagrammable hotel in the world by Luxury Travel Advisor — and it's easy to see why. At just a short 30-minute seaplane flight from Velana international airport, the resort is situated in the Maldives' Baa Atoll island archipelago and on Kihavah Huravalhi, which is one of the most pristine Maldivian islands. And that's just the beginning.
Once you've flown over a string of glowing coral islands and settled into one of 80 private villas, you'll be able to snorkel some of the world's most treasured reefs, explore uninhabited islands that are home to turtles, and go on a dolphin watching cruise. The resort is also home to an underwater restaurant and an over water observatory, where you'll be able to eat and relax as the sun is setting.
If you ever wondered what paradise looks like, it seems we finally have an answer.
