Overview

Experience barefoot luxury at the five-star Niyama Private Islands, a stylish Maldivian resort with exceptional water sports facilities, multiple dining options and wonderful villa-style accommodation, spread across two idyllic ‘themed’ isles. The upscale ‘Chill’ island appeals to couples with a peaceful spa, a gorgeous house reef and speedboat rides to the unique underwater restaurant. Meanwhile, 'Play' island offers a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere with a kids' club, treetop restaurant and an oceanfront infinity pool complete with children’s areas and poolside cabanas.

Spread across two immaculate islands in the Dhaalu Atoll, Niyama Private Islands is a nature-filled Maldivian hideaway. Tall coconut palms and banana leaf trees frame the pure-white sandbars, and a wooden bridge connects the two islands. You can explore the surrounding lagoons, where sea turtles and bottlenose dolphins are known to swim freely. The resort is around a 45-minute seaplane journey from Malé airport.

Chic villas and pavilions are located along the beach or above the water. Their luxurious interiors combine traditional Maldivian style with modern features, and all accommodation includes a full-sized fridge and freezer stocked with gourmet items, like ice cream (some items are complimentary). A dedicated butler, or thakuru, will also be able to assist you throughout your stay. Beach Villas provide a private outdoor deck with direct access to the white-sand beach, while Water Pool Villas boast a private fibre-optic lit plunge pool and a staircase which leads straight into the lagoon. Meanwhile, the larger Deluxe Water Pool Villas have an additional hot tub on their private decks.

Otherwise, there’s a well-equipped fitness centre, where you can book private classes for body sculpting, Pilates, and aqua aerobics (supplementary charges apply). Instructors lead teen fitness sessions and children’s Zumba classes, too. Outdoors, you can cycle around the islands on a hired bike, spend time on the tennis court or find a tranquil space for a morning yoga session.

Children between the ages of 3 and 12 can participate in a range of supervised activities at the Explorers Kids Club, which features a colourful outdoor area with a playground, trampoline and splash park. Kids can learn how to cook in the little gourmet kitchen, perform on the mini stage and embark on guided wildlife tours. Professional childcare is also available for infants (between 12 and 24 months old), for a supplement charge.

Embrace a slower pace around the resort’s infinity pool, or visit the Drift Spa, set overlooking the turquoise lagoon. The gorgeous spa features a tranquil relaxation garden with a sauna, juice bar, steam baths, plunge pools and hot tubs, as well as six treatment rooms with ocean views. There are also two exclusive treatment sanctuaries with private gardens, outdoor bathtubs, rainfall showers and daybeds. You can book signature treatments in the day or night, including those which incorporate bespoke products by Anne Semonin, Intraceuticals, Aromatherapy Associates and Margaret Dabbs. Other treatments feature local ingredients, like Maldivian coral sand and coconut oil, and specialist spa treatments cater for families and children.

In the evenings, you can listen to live music at Fahrenheit bar, watch a movie on the beach or attend a special glow party at the impressive underwater restaurant. 

Dining information

Set beside the infinity pool, Epicure is a casual, family-friendly restaurant. You can start the day here with a choice of fruit platters, fresh pastries, waffles, omelettes, pancakes and ‘super food’ dishes. The lunch and dinner menus incorporate local and international dishes, ranging from truffle-infused risottos to spicy seafood curries. All-day dining is also available at Dune, the open-air beach club, and Blu, which serves Mediterranean-inspired fare and ice creams beside the pool. Otherwise, you can order grab-and-go snacks from The Deli, including antipasti, paninis, ice creams and smoothies.

Dine at Nest, a fabulous Asian-themed restaurant in the treetops, or follow the torch lights to Tribal, where you can savour African and South American delicacies on the beach. A speedboat ride will bring you to the floating fine-dining restaurant, Edge, where you can feast on gourmet dishes above the mesmerising ocean. Below this restaurant, six metres beneath the ocean’s surface, you’ll find the incredible Subsix, which hosts Champagne breakfasts, special lunches, weekly glow parties, wine tastings and unforgettable destination dinners. Surrounded by glass walls, you’ll be immersed in the dazzling underwater world of the Dhaalu Atoll. After dinner, head to the chic rooftop bar to enjoy speciality cocktails and live music overlooking the Indian Ocean.

Those seeking a little more privacy can enjoy in-villa dining or book a destination dining experience, whether it’s a family barbeque in a private garden, a romantic meal aboard a Dhoni boat or dinner on a deserted island (these special dining experiences are on offer for a supplementary charge).
