Kihaad Maldives Resort – All Inclusive

Kihaad Maldives Aerial

Priding themselves on room choices offering views of a lifetime, the Kihaad Maldives Resort has 12 water villas to go along with 106 island rooms and suites. The water villas are unusual in that they don’t allow anyone under 18, although the island itself does have a Kids Club and swimming pool, so it is a family-friendly resort otherwise.

The water villas come in two classes, both being huge and very well appointed. The resort operates on an all-inclusive basis with 3 restaurants and 3 lounges, and shortly after the opening the room rates are very appealing for what is included. This is also one of the very few resorts in the Maldives that has a nearby domestic airport, so guests can save money by taking a commercial flight instead of the sea-plane option.

Location

Kihaad Maldives Resort is located in Baa Atoll, 120 kilometers northwest of Malé International Airport in the Maldives.

With mostly overwhelming good reviews, this resort seems to be a crowd favorite. Many reviews detail the staff, location and dining choices as good, great or fantastic. As a newer resort, most of the reviews claim it to be clean and well maintained, which is a great sign for the future.
