‘Intimate Luxury – Life at Your Pace’
Niyama Private Islands Maldives is an innovative and casual resort comprising of two islands, appropriately named Play and Chill. Niyama’s Villas have private and secluded outdoor areas and indoor spaces designed to keep guests entertained and relaxed and the Deli In Maxi bar offers a treat for everyone. Play encourages you to do just that, be adventurous and surf the waves, snorkel with hammerheads, learn to dive or take to the skies either parasailing, kite surfing or with a jet pack. Chill, meanwhile, is where you will find the Spa and wellness facilities. For kids the Play, Explorers Kids’ Club immerses little VIPs in nature and the islands. There are a choice of 12 options for food and beverages, including Subsix an underwater restaurant reached by speedboat and Nest set in a treetop setting and serving Thai, Chinese and Indonesian specialities.
In Our Opinion
‘You must take part in Niyama’s Coral Regeneration Project – we loved making our own coral frame from reef fragments, with the help of the resident Marine Biologist. Not only did we make the frame we swam it to the coral nursery and now we cannot wait to visit again and see how it has grown.’
