Hello Readers, Myself and my wife enjoyed our honeymoon here from the 8th July - 22nd July. The first two days were a blur as there were so many beautiful features and it was quite surreal actually experiencing paradise. Our person who was appointed to look after us is called Yousuf (top man). He made our stay very special and... More

Our last trip to Maldives was back in 2006. 8yrs later, we're itching to be back and this time with our little one. We chose Niyama through recommendation and booked through a rep here who worked for a Maldivian travel agent. We arrived late (good deal on airfare) and checked in to Le Veux Nice Inn for the night.

Let me start saying that we are Venezuelans so we know very well the meaning of the word "beach". This hotel is fantastic, awesome experience, great service, you definitively get what you paid for, not need to say is pricy, is Maldives.

I will start with the things that need improvement:

 - The smell of the female changing room at the spa needs to be corrected. It smelled like rotten eggs 
- The staff at the water sports center were generally approachable but one of them could certainly improve his customer service and attitude - he allowed us to take the paddleboard... More

Of all the 10 Maldives resorts we tried hard to narrow down from hundreds, we chose Niyama since one of the highlights at this resort was the Subsix underwater club, and it didn't disappoint us at all though not that extremely spectacular.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 tranquility 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
