Anantara was built on an Eden-like private island that was once part coconut plantation. Even now, bits of errant palm grow through the gaps of the thatched-roof rooms. The individual infinity pools and outdoor showers in the 78 overwater and beach suites sound lovely, and would make for a serious winter escape. But it’s the bathtubs for two that have us in a tizzy. Get this: they’re glass bottomed! So while you’re both playing with the, uh, bubbles, the fishies are floating by and getting a free peep show. It’s not your average overwater bungalow, at all. Add the underwater restaurant and its wine cellar, plus the spa’s coconut-laced treatments and couples massage classes? We are beside ourselves with longing. Villa rates from: $1,170
Year-Round Sexy Hotels: Anantara Kihavah Villas, Maldives
Nothing says "I heart you boo" more than a romantic getaway, but sexytime isn't just for Valentine's Day. So if you don't have time to catch one of the V-Day packages we're profiling this week, we're also presenting you with some year-round sexy options. Whether you're into raunch, roses, or Rosé, every day this week, we’ll pick a different property that we think will knock your socks—and who knows what else—off.
As far as far-flung romps go, the brand new Anantara Kihavah Villas in the Maldives, qualify in our book. If you’re gonna trek to the middle of the Indian Ocean, it’s gotta be for good reason. So this resort, which opens later this month, has given itself a name that translates to “without end” in Sanskrit. Upon hearing that, we expect a laundry list of sexiness, and from what we hear, the resort brings it.
