A sophisticated oasis in the midst of the Indian Ocean with a contemporary aesthetic, Niyama is an exciting new resort with beach and over-water pavilions, many with private plunge pools. With a 24-hour spa, an off-shore floating restaurant and lounge and vast range of fun activities plus an underwater nightclub, this amazing resort provides an extraordinary mix of tranquillity, stimulation and fun. The deep blue of the sea and sky, the golden sand and the rich verdant green of the swaying palms and tropical plants glisten in the warm sun. Sit on the balcony of your Niyama Studio or Pavilion and immerse yourself in the beauty of these islands while savouring the delicatessen specialities and wine from your fridge. Then head to the spa or enjoy some deep-sea diving. Enjoy lunch in Tribal with live cooking on grills, woks and open fires and where the cuisine ranges from Africa and Asia to the Middle East and South America. Discover the arts studio and then rent a traditional sailing dhoni before returning to Niyama to unwind with a drink in Fahrenheit and watch the sunset from the rooftop.

As of Jan 2015, the resort opens its second island ‘Play’. With 48 new villas, Play offers fresh, groundbreaking concepts including Nest, the treetop dining experience and BLU, the laid-back beachfront restaurant, plus new facilities for every generation including the most exciting children’s club in the Maldives.

Play is connected to NIYAMA’s original island, ‘Chill’, by a bridge with the two just a hop, skip and a jump apart. Miami meets the Mediterranean at BLU, which offers relaxed family-style beachfront dining from day through to night. The large infinity pool with its dedicated children’s swimming area offers fun for the whole tribe and the poolside ice cream parlour is packed with homemade treats including smoothies, sherbert and crêpes. A ‘Sunshine Thakuru’ takes care of guests’ every whim and poolside cabanas offer a private haven close to all the action.

Opening soon on Play, Nest is a one-of-a-kind dining concept for the Maldives featuring naturally modern design nestled amongst the Banyan trees in the heart of the jungle. With a diverse menu, Nest offers a gourmet wonderland of Asian specialties from Thai to Teppanyaki with fresh, seasonal produce from the Chef’s own island garden. The innovative multi-level treehouse design provides spectacular locations from private pods suspended six metres above the ground to culinary theatrics in do med pavilions burrowed amongst the trees, all linked by wooden walkways adding a sense of adventure to the jungle experience.

Explorers, the new children’s club run by an internationally renowned operator, is located close to the resort’s family friendly accommodation on Play. Designed with adventurous spirits in mind, Explorers offers a wealth of experiences which promise to ignite children’s imagination.
