Dive into Romance with Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas’ Underwater Weddings

At Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas, romance is anything but ordinary. A private island with only 80 villas dotting lush grounds, exclusivity is assured. A dedicated wedding planner from first thoughts to final details ensures your dream wedding comes to life in every way

Make a statement with an underwater wedding. Your altar is a coral bed, your rings presented in a white shell. Exchange vows with a dive-certified minister your witness, each moment captured by our underwater photographer. Adopt a coral to memorialise the occasion, returning on an anniversary to see how it blooms.

Your journey together back on land begins with professional hair styling and make-up for the bride. Dine on barbecued lobster prepared by your chef for the evening, and served by the butler on a candlelit stretch of beach.

Retiring to your villa, your Slumber Guru experience begins with a soak in essential oils in a candlelit bath. Unwind side by side with a lavender oil massage, then fall into the deepest of sleeps. Waking up the next morning, Champagne breakfast is served in bed. The perfect beginning of forever unfolds in paradise.

At Anantara Kihavah, wedding stages are limited only by your imagination. For those who wish to keep their feet on dry land, exchange vows in Kihavah’s signature underwater venue SEA as fish swim past floor-to-ceiling glass, wed on a palm-fringed beach at the resort, on a deserted island at sunset, in front of family on a private yacht, or over water in a private residence.

Wedding packages start from USD 4,400++ for 2 persons. Weddings at Kihavah can accommodate up to 200 guests. Please note that ceremonies in the Maldives as a Muslim country are not legally binding.
