On the Baa Atoll, off the coast of the Maldives, the Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas offer guests the opportunity to swim with one of the most bizarre and magnificent creatures of the ocean: the manta ray. As the only publicly accessible location within the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Hanifaru Bay, the Anantara Kihavah resort is one of the best places in the world to experience the giant fish.
Anantara Kihavah is a PADI-accredited organization, meaning that any guests can quickly get in the water and begin freediving with the manta rays. And the sooner the better, since manta rays collect around Hanifaru Bay based on the time of the month, with the most activity typically near the full moon.
