Very nice island, very helpful staff. Manager helped me to organize great birthday for my boyfriend. I was surprised that each bungalow has own beach, you cannot walk around the island, only inside. It is really great. I also can suggest this island, if you do snorkeling. Soooo beautiful reef. You can meet sharks, moray, turtle and more beautiful fishes... More

My husband and I stayed at Nika resort for a week and loved it. The delux beach room was out of this world!! The regular beach room was also nice and it was amazing to have our own private beach to use whenever we wanted. We had a fabulous time on the fishing trip and the sunset drinks trip but... More

We were happily surprised by this hotel. The Island is well kept. The beaches are clean. There is a good balance between the equatorial nature and the facilities. The Island is full of exotic animals, especially birds, parrot, peacocks, giant bats, lizards. From the main bar restaurant area, it's not difficult to behold Sharks, mantas. The Deluxe Beach villa that... More

Room: Choosing your room is the most important thing you will do. In our 6 night stay we split our time between the Garden, Deluxe and Water Villa. First off we lucked out with the Garden Villa as we got the room just above the Coffee Shop which has the most gorgeous view of the Jetty Public Beach (if you... More

This was our first stop on our first trip to the Maldives. Since it was a long trip from Canada we did our research in carefully selecting Nika and were not disappointed. I would say that the food, the service, accommodation, scenery, and of course the snorkeling exceeded expectations. Our private beach villa was like a piece of heaven on... More

So, Nika. It’s real Maldivian 5* Perfect service on arrival: private VIP-lounge in Male airport, after 10 min of waiting a member of hotel staff is accompanying you to a hydroplane so that you don’t have to touch your luggage. 25 min in the air – and you’re on the island. A short introducing talk to a Russian-speaking hotel manager... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nika Resort is the only island in the Maldives where all the bungalows have their private beach, the best place for a complete relax. Nika is completely surrounded by a wonderful house reef and it’s dense of a luxurious vegetation where the bungalows are perfectly hidden. There are two bars where the guests can enjoy music, happy hours, wonderful sunsets, board games, library and satellite TV or just chill out in the breeze of the ocean. The Coffee Shop is located close to the main beach, is the ideal place to watch the sun go down after a lazy day basking in its brilliance. The restaurant also boasts a deck where one can dine with candles, the twinkling stars and the waves rolling on to the beach. Most of the food items and ingredients are imported directly from Italy.Some of the most interesting diving areas in Ari Atoll lie close to Nika Island: Maaya Thila (Shark point), Dinolugaa (Manta point), Ganghei Kandu, Matiburi, Maalos Thila, Kuda Thila and Miyaruga Thila are incredibile dives sites. ... more   less
