Resort Anantara Kihavah has prepared an offer for those who have long dreamed to learn about the secrets of the night sky. Guests who chose Stargazing with the Sky Guru, along with a resident astronomer, will study the constellations at the observatory’s open area using the most powerful telescope in the Maldives
Ali Shamim, the resort’s astronomer, used to work as a butler and knows exactly how to get carried away by an interesting story of a guest, especially if this story is devoted to the secrets of the cosmos. “I always dreamed of doing astronomy. I still remember the first time I looked into the telescope lens to see the rings of Saturn. This fascinating spectacle I remember for life and in my work I try to infect others with my passion for the cosmos, “he says.
Maldives is one of the best places on Earth to look at the stars, thanks to the comfortable climatic and environmental conditions, including the level of light pollution. The astronomical platform in the resort is equipped with the latest technology. It is suitable for a romantic date, and for cozy gatherings with the family.
To get to the Anantara Kihavah resort, which is ready to boast not only 79 spacious villas on the water or on a private beach, but also with its own colorful coral reefs, it is possible in just 30 minutes by seaplane from Male. For those guests who want to make a gastronomic “dive”, the resort has opened the restaurant SEA.FIRE.SALT.SKY. Japanese cuisine is served in the above-water part of the restaurant, and delicacies of international cuisine are under the water.
