Approaching a Maldives island by seaplane will be your first magical encounter with the Indian Ocean; close enough to almost taste the salty sea but tantalisingly distant and your expectations soar.

We’re taking a totally distant look at one of our favourite Maldives Island resorts, Per Aquum Niyama, which is situated (greedily!) across two typically stunning land masses.

Leaving Male, the capital, your 40-minute journey by seaplane will take you over rings of islands clusters and changing ocean colours as the water depth varies and sea-walls are clearly visible.

You may be lucky enough to get glimpses of villages and their inhabitants and perhaps pods of dolphins leaping or twisting above the surface of the water.

Situated in the south-westerly atoll of Dhaalu you’ll have plenty to be in awe of during your journey however the ultimate thrill of the land that will become your no shoes-no news comes into view in no time and then your descent can begin.


Shallow waters perfect for snorkelling and scuba diving, colourful coral and even a table at the Edge – an overwater restaurant may now be apparent.

What may not be quite so clear is Subsix, an underwater playground positioned 500 metres out at sea; once in residence however, a Champagne breakfast, lunch or themed evening could be on your agenda.
