Niyama Private Islands

Best Experience: Watersports, Two Pristine Islands perfect for Family & Couples, Luxury Surfing


Developed by Per Aquum (Huvafenfushi) and co-owned by Anantara, Niyama Private Islands Maldives is a resort with a rich ancestry. Sharing design and quality of service of both resorts, what distinguishes Niyama is a lot of various entertainments and activities. Set on two pristine islands on Dhaalu Atoll in the Maldives, newlyweds and active couples love the place, but it is also ideal for families. Endless breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean, boat trips, diving and water sports are additional benefits of this a luxury 5 * Indian Ocean resort.

Located on the two ideal islands of Embudhufushi and Olhuveli, NIYAMA embodies the Maldivian elegance, in the packaging of modern aesthetics. Known for its newest, fashionable brand, Niyama is a dynamically developing hotel that balances tranquility with a sense of discovery, desire and fun.

Proclaiming itself "Nature's playground", Niyama Private Islands Maldives takes barefoot luxury to an exotic new level. Its two islands Chill and Play, one with a family focus and the other dedicated to couples are a tropical paradise with lush vegetation, ivory white beaches, crystal clear waters and endless views out over the Indian Ocean. The resort is a mix of modern and traditional Maldivian design and facilities, with a distinctive edgy feel, where guests are wonderfully looked after, choosing between total privacy and an extraordinary range of activities.

Based on the experience of previous luxury hotels in the Maldives, Niyama perfectly represents its design and setting. From the pool and the bar on the west side to the spa rooms with a continuous view of the white waves breaking about the reef, to the offshore restaurant with its underwater club, Niyama really exudes the paradise Maldives. 86 studios and pavilions inhabit Chill, and 48 are on the Play, whether on land or on water. The atmosphere is a holiday of bright colors: red tomato, yellow canary, mandarin, which simultaneously create a carefree atmosphere for the new and fashionable.

Experience world-class service at Niyama Private Islands Maldives


A lot of accommodation options await the discerning traveler. Families often choose private pools and exclusive beach access at Beach Pavilions or Beach Residences, which have their own dining alcoves and lots of living space. Whether you choose between beach or "over-water" living, the accommodation at Niyama is the epitome of luxurious lagoon living. Surrounded by crystal clear water, pristine beach or lush vegetation, all the studios, suites and pavilions (excluding some of the beach studios) have their own private pool, are exceptionally spacious and come with fabulous amenities and a private butler. With features including outdoor rain showers, in-room delis and complimentary ice cream, it's hard to leave your suite. DOWNLOAD RESORT MAP

Niyama's Water Studio with Pool

Four categories, each of the Beach and Water studios and pavilions become more expensive in accordance with the size and location. On a wide sandy beach with sunset views, a great rooms, probably because of the low price - one of 20 Beach Studios with a private pool with a beautiful beach and stunning lagoon in front. Villas from one to four lurk in dense vegetation for privacy, although other guests do wander by, on the way to the pool. For luxury and indulgence, one of the pavilions (3 on the beach and 2 overwater) with a personal butler is a real class.

Couples usually book the Water Pavilion with Private Pool, or for example the expansive Deluxe Water Studio, with spacious areas, landscaped pools and beautiful views of the Indian Ocean.

For maximum enjoyment, venture into one of the two Ocean Pavilions with large pools. This villa is 350 m2, packed with the best of the best that resort can offer: gadgets, spacious terraces, infinity pool, jacuzzi and much more. Pavilions go "all personal" - which includes food, a cocktail bar, a collection of wines.

All rooms are beautifully decorated. They do not shout about their expenses, but disclose them with the help of good taste and skill. As in most cases in the Maldives, simplicity works best.

The predominant white and cream tones reflect the light in the rooms well, and are sprinkled with crimson and orange sprays. These are the places where you are happy to enter and exit through the wide glass doors.

The same is true for a thin inner bathroom from the rear. A large screen with the Bose system is just as easy to use that even a child can use it. The iPad with free Wi-Fi is a perfect touch, and Deli In is a large expanded mini bar, free popcorn for your movies and free coffee and bottled water.

Music should be an integral part of the mood around the resort, but in fact few hotels do it well. Niyama Private is one of those who know how. "Music Concierge" sends frequently updated hits to different places for playing at the appropriate hours of the day and night. This helps to make the area around the main restaurant, pool and bars a brighter, interesting place.

Food and Drink

Inevitably, you are the only audience on this paradise island, and with the exception of the rare appearance of seaplanes, guests are far from any other hotels, restaurants and bars. You are lucky, Niyama has such a starry food choice, all with different settings and food offerings.
International cuisine is served generously for breakfast, lunch and dinner at Epicure; the casual, open all-day main restaurant offers plentiful buffets, with ever-changing cuisine's themes, from the "Route of Spice" to the Maldivian "Mas-Bazaar."

Dishes of South American, Asian and African cuisine can be found in Tribal. With an emphasis on Africa, Tribal forms the food channel of the "modern campsite" near a romantic fire, with torches, sand floor, jungle canopy and barbecue, grilling delicious meat and appetizing seafood. You can even eat separately in a nest in the crowns of trees.

Dune - for refreshing cocktails by the pool, Fahrenheit lounge - the perfect place after sunset. There are also unique cold appetizers for true gourmets: The Deli, with its chic and good atmosphere something reminiscent of Starbuck.

The most titbit and luxurious dining experience in NIYAMA is The Edge. A romantic five-minute trip by boat - this restaurant is for the connoisseurs of fine cuisine, and is 500 meters from the beach. The last order is at 22:30.

Available 24h, Dine In menu provides guests with a choice of breakfasts, a variety of dishes and midnight snacks with room service. Try to a private dinner at the villa with a movie and popcorn DIY (do it yourself).

Niyama Private Islands Maldives is particularly known for its dining experiences in surreal settings. And two of the resorts three signature restaurants are headed by female chefs. Chef Wiparat Pratumma, or Chef Gai as she is known to guests, has designed a menu with a mix of Thai cuisine with an Indian Ocean twist, Chinese, Indonesian and Vietnamese flavours. Chef Naomi Wamaitha Kimani takes on a different sort of fire, this time deep in the jungle at Niyama's Tribal- the only Afro-Latin restaurant in the Maldives. Serving up rare flavours from Central, South America and Africa, Chef Naomi handles every detail from the menu to execution. Sample must-try signature dishes from her native Kenya, flame-Warm Ostrich Bobotie, garlic reduction and peppadew puree, or line-caught seabass simmered in tamarind and coconut sauce. The Nest restaurant also boasts of a teppanyaki table, helmed by another of the resorts rising stars, Chef Narissara ‘Niki' Tansomboon. Chopping, sizzling, handling bursts of flame with finesse, Chef Niki illustrates Minor Hotels' emphasis on female career development: recruited as a junior chef at Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle, Chef Niki quickly worked her way up the career ladder, as well as across the Indian Ocean.

Dress Code: Barefoot is recommended in all restaurants except Edge, where sexy sandals should not attract the attention of the opposite sex. In all respects, light and comfortable summer clothes are the best option.

The best tables: In Epicure, take one of the tables at the end of the terrace for a feast under the stars, or ask your "thakura" (personal butler) to order one of the intimate tables at the edge, in Tribal.

Towering above Epicure, red-hot to white Farenheit Bar has a terrace with a good ocean's view, with elegant white sofas, daybeds and low tables. Inside, bucket chairs with scarlet pillows cluster around small, lighted tables for two. Below, on the beach there is a Dune bar with thatched roofs where snacks and cocktails of a variety of kinds are served, but the main Niyama's hangout is below sea level in 500 meters from the shore.

Guests, well shaken by speedboat are then immersed in the submarine of the three-story Subsix (the first of its kind nightclub). Mirror floors and abstract chandeliers add a surreal shine to the fantastic foyer, and inside the club guests sit in anemone-like armchairs under a thousand strings of seashells strung over the ceiling. If you want a frezy night of insanity the club has a weekly Glow Party and DJ nights, and also wine degustations and marine biologist lectures, but a worthy show of parrot fish, moray eels and other exotic marine life is much more attractive than happens on the dance floor.


Always delighted with the water, your children will be here in their element. Children's Club Explorers - for kids of all ages, although teenagers will get the most out of this activity. Built in a fantastic space on one of the islands, close to some of the resort's most family friendly accommodation, the club is designed with adventurous spirits in mind. A colourful circus theme runs throughout, and facilities cater for each age range, including a dedicated sleep room for daytime siestas. Younger guests build sandcastles, paint coconuts, make salt dough and have fun with bubbles, whilst our older ones become master chefs, visit local islands, enjoy watersports and play volley ball matches. The club has its very own climbing wall, a trampoline pit and even a stage for those who like to perform, ensuring there's something for every child who takes part. The club is open seven days a week, from 9am to 6pm, and children can take part in morning, afternoon or full day sessions. There's a charge for children aged between 12 months and two years, whilst those from three to 12, are free of charge.

Children and teenagers will be crazy about ACTIVE, branded resort's game room with top games. Perfect for rainy days, painted with cherry-red large round pillows, the overloaded playing space is charged with a table for ping-pong, there are darts, fosball, and TV with Xbox and PlayStation gaming consoles. Do not forget to open your mouths in two "high-tech" rooms with giant screens, where you can play golf, basketball and hockey simulators.

The best family rooms: One and two-room beach pavilions with a swimming pool offer more space for extra beds. Families with young children do not recommend overwater accomodation. Baby cots are available free of charge, and extra beds for older children are $ 40 per night. Services of the nurse from 20 dollars at an o'clock.

In younger children's groups, the programs include: sports simulators, photo lessons, cooking classes, sailing school, billiards, radio-controlled boats and cars, Xbox and Wii center. The main swimming pool has a dedicated area for the safe swimming of kids, with floats and inflatable toys.

Children are welcome in all Niyama's restaurants where Epicure is the most family-friendly with children's rooms with children's high chairs and lovely kids' menu. Staff will prepare packed lunches and can warm up baby food or milk at will.

Available Nintendo, radio-controlled boats and buggies, excursions to dhoni, diving, photo and cinema courses, in-room entertainment systems, weekly films at the local cinema (popcorn for free!), And even a marine biology laboratory

kids in Niyama's Water Studio with Pool


Surfing in Niyama Maldives is a big waves without crowds, high quality and beautiful wildlife. Welcome to the luxurious surf resort in the Maldives, where the wave breaks right on the island's doorstep. On the edge of Niyama's Play Island you will find a classic powerful left wave. In the west and just five minutes by speedboat in Kudahuvadhoo Corner there is the Kasabu surf spot - an excellent hollow right wave. Head east and in 10 minutes you will ride the Hocus Pocus in Maeenboodhoo Corner, an excellent right break. Or hike closer to the island on the Vodi surf point in Niyama Corner, a good left wave.


The resort has a lot to do and see: a confident NIYAMA knows how to entertain couples, children and their parents. The Float Center is the destination for PADI diving (including non-standard courses for kids and newcomers), deep sea fishing and sports in and out of the water, including parasailing, water skiing, jet ski, snorkeling, kayaking and windsurfing. Also, in the center's menu: sailing lessons, surfing and kiteboarding if you want to polish your skills or are willing to try something new. Non-motorised sports are all complimentary.

Snorkelling on the nearby house reef is possible but accessible only by boat for a charge.

There is an activity programme for adults, including kickboxing, beach volleyball, sunset yoga, hair styling, a DJ workshop and a movie session - to name but a few! Cookery classes are also available with a focus on international cuisine; think African, South American and Japanese.

Go on a morning big game fishing trip, where what you catch can be cooked and served to you for dinner!

To be first and unique, the main theme in NIYAMA: the other good news is The LIME, the first 24-hour spa in the Maldives. If you like to indulge yourself in style, slip into the Lime Spa for tempting medical treatments, using a fragrant cocktail of cosmetic products based on natural, local ingredients. The best time to go there is at night, as the day spa is usually full. Book in for a massage in one of their over water treatment rooms with a view of the lagoon, it's so relaxing.

For a more sedate relax, the bright and chill Lair lounge is a simple ticket for comfortable sofas, DVDs, books and magazines, two iMacs, a TV, and the refrigerator is always packed with free drinks.

You can't have a day without shopping ... even in a tropical paradise? Jewelry can be find in Orifini, grab designer beachwear and sunglasses from Prada and Bulgari in the trendy Essence boutique, and do not miss the souvenir gifts at the elegant souvenir shop where you will also find beautiful cards and beauty products.

Take out one of the private Dhoni boats overnight and anchor next to your own private island. Sail at sunset with the dolphins for company and sip champagne on the huge oversized on-deck bean bags - utter heaven and ideal for a romantic treat!
