One destination spread languidly across two islands, Niyama gives the luxury Maldives holiday an exciting twist. Recent stellar upgrades have given the resort more of everything that makes a getaway so special, from new culinary attractions to a poolside ice cream bar, photo studio and children’s club. Relax as never before in ultra-chic accommodation encompassing sleek suites, water studios and beach pavilions, the Crescent comprising five villas with private Thakuru butlers. No fewer than eight restaurants now tempt the taste buds; new BLU features all-day dining round the pool, whilst Nest is six metres above the ground amongst Banyan trees and showcases Teppanyaki, Thai, Chinese and Indonesian cuisines. Chill out at Subsix underwater restaurant, drink to the glorious sunsets viewed from the rooftop bar and embark on a sensory holistic journey in the ravishing Niyama Spa. Indulge in stylish pampering at The Salon by Pedro Sanchez; from specialised conditioning treatments to chic updos and simple cuts, you will experience the ultimate hairstyling experience. FLOAT is the jumping off point for watersports including PADI-certified diving, jet skiing, kayaking and fishing; ocean-life awareness is the focus of visits to the Marine Life Centre. For gym workouts head for PUMP; for utter bliss set sail aboard a traditional Maldivian dhoni. Extreme gaming beckons at ACTIVE, with Wii, PS4, Xbox and more.
Niyama is a firm favourite of the modern stylish traveller. The true beauty of this paradisiacal hideaway lies 500 metres out to sea. Only accessible by boat, EDGE inspires with its flashy, fine dining. Oozing the wow factor with its panoramic sunset views and chill-out vibe, its dishes exude sophistication. Follow with a cocktail under the waves at SUBSIX, the underwater music lounge.
Relax into a state of utter tranquillity at Niyama’s Spa, with its range of treatments from around the world, open 24 hours. With six over water treatment rooms and two treatment sanctuaries with private gardens, you can enjoy after-dark therapies in a wonderfully unique setting.
Become part of Niyama’s coral regeneration programme and help to maintain the Maldives’ ecosystem by adopting a coral. After snorkelling to select your coral, you will receive a certificate and follow up images of your coral growing and flourishing.
Enjoy the sunset on the pristine waters of the Indian Ocean on board a luxurious Dream Dhoni. These spectacular vessels are the perfect location to watch the sky change colour and take in the breath taking views.
The Maldives has a hot, tropical climate with sunshine all year round. The most popular months to visit are between November and April during the north-east monsoon when it is dry with very little wind. Whilst there may be rain during some of the summer months, with ever-changing weather patterns and excellent offers, this is becoming an increasingly popular time to travel.
