Niyama Private Islands is just a 40-minute seaplane from Malé
Located in the South Dhaalu Atoll, just a 40-minute sea plane from Malé, Niyama’s twin islands offer up the luxury of choice, from the chic serenity on the island of ‘Chill’ to the excitement and adventure on the island of ‘Play’ – or a combination of both as your mood dictates.
An airport representative greets you on your arrival at Malé International Airport, and will assist you with check-in for your seaplane transfer. (Or if you prefer to fly by private jet or domestic flight, you will land at the neighbouring island in Dhaalu Airport.) You can almost hear the collective sigh from the other passengers as your plane flies over those crystal clear blue Maldivian waters, and Niyama appears on the horizon.
Combining traditional Maldivian style with a unique modern twist, the award-winning hotel boasts beachfront rooms with private pools and those iconic Maldivian water villas. The vibe is laid back and every detail is considered. Oh, and did we mention you get your own Thakuru (butler) service?
Niyama boasts 134 rooms including beachfront houses and water villas
The resort serves up one of the best dining scenes in the Maldives with no less than seven restaurants, including: Nest, a one-of-a-kind dining concept hidden in the trees; all-day dining options Blu and Epicure; Tribal, which serves African, Central and South American cuisines; plus Subsix, an underwater restaurant submerged six metres below the waterline.
