This was probably the most memorable holiday we've had in all of our trips! We were spoiled in every way and the hotel was perfect for people like us looking for some fun and adventure as well. Our experience started with their beautiful lounge in the seaplane airport. We immediately felt at home and enjoyed the cozy ambiance of the... More

Niyama is a BEAUTIFUL resort. As you fly over in your seaplane, you really do realise you're landing in paradise. The sand is white, and sculpted by a team of staff on a daily basis - the trees and gardens are incredibly well kept - and NOTHING looks rusted or aged one bit. Even before you take your short flight... More

This was our second trip to the Maldives within 6 months.. Another great experience.. The manager was so nice, we were expecting to find bicycles and did not see them, so he ordered them from the capital and they arrived in less than 24 hours! He was able to please us with many other things too. We got the largest... More

Earlier this month my husband and I spent part of our honeymoon at Niyama. We have been lucky enough to stay at some brilliant luxury hotels around the world, but the Niyama resort really impressed us.

NIYAMA, which opened in March 2012, is Per AQUUM's latest addition to an award-winning resort portfolio. This hotly anticipated resort is turning the Maldives upside down with a plethora of options to get guests active and incite a sense of discovery, stimulation and fun. This exciting new concept is, of course, paired with the natural beauty and tranquillity of the Maldives so those who just want to sit back, chill out and relax can do so in style. Try the games simulators, enjoy yoga, tai chi or zumba, kick up your heals at Subsix the world’s first underwater music club, or simply relax and watch the sunset from Fahrenheit rooftop bar. Located in the South Western Atoll of Dhaalu, NIYAMA is a 40 minute seaplane flight from the Maldives capital Male’.Innovative dining options include Tribal, which brings a new unique concept to the Maldives. Designed like a modern day campsite, guests sit in specially designed pods surrounded by live cooking stations with dishes influenced by tribes from South America, Africa and Asia. Cooking methods include hot rock grills, asados and open flames. Per AQUUM’s Deli-In presents an a la carte menu of gourmet deli items such as ice creams, cheeses, olives, cold cuts and wines all pre-stocked in each Studio and Pavilion. The in-room popcorn makers with complimentary corn kernels add that additional element of fun.Fahrenheit is perfect for refreshing drinks throughout the day transforming into one of island hot spots at night with spectacular ocean and sunset views. ... more   less
