We spent a week at Niyama in late March and had a fabulous time. We fully agree with the review written by bags99 about the level of luxury and service provided at this beautiful resort. The staff were ever so well trained, attentive and pleasant and we were treated like royalty.
The food in both restaurants (Epicure and Tribal) was exquisite and beautifully presented, comparable to Michelin starred restaurants anywhere.
The snorkelling and diving, accompanied by the marine biology team, exceeded our expectation. We also enjoyed the informal fitness sessions run by Swapnil (tai chi, yoga, kick boxing, aqua aerobics, etc.)
Hatti K writes about construction on the island. There was some work but quite honestly this did not affect our holiday experience at all because it was going on in the far away parts of the island.
A huge Thank You to Brian, our butler Imran and the entire team for making our stay so special.
