Hi, just got back from our trip. It was one of the best vacations ever. From the time my husband and I stepped off the seaplane we were greeted on the pier by Nigel(GM) and Armand(resort manager) as well as the ever Polite and attentive butlers of Niyama. Niyama is just beautiful and was the perfect spot for my birthday and anniversary.
Our deluxe water studio was situated right in the best spot and with the best view of the ocean. It was great just to jump off the private pier right into the ocean, followed by relaxing in the private studio pool. The food is awesome they have a great buffet during the morning and evening. A la carte from the menu is the best. I tried the chefs salad of the day where fish is wrapped around greens accompanied by caramelized apples .... Impressive.
We went snorkeling around the coral garden, and my husband had his first diving lesson and dive in Niyama -I think he has a new hobby now.
The attentiveness of the staff is incredible. They set up a very romantic anniversary dinner for us as well as sending us the most decadent chocolate cake for both my birthday and anniversary. Nothing was too difficult for them to handle. Our butler Yoosuf was very efficient and caring -special thanks to you.
The weather was perfect, we even got to experience a Maldivan storm, I love storms. We didn't manage to get to try Sub six (the underwater restaurant ) because of the evening stormy ocean the last 2 days of our stay but going to save that for my next visit to Niyama.
The staff again saw us off on our seaplane. Armand was there to say 'bye' It's nice to see the managers of the resort being so visible and accessible to the guests. Every morning I would see Nigel and Armand making their morning rounds to the guests at the breakfast buffet.
Overall I found the staff incredibly helpful and polite, always willing to have a chat. Yoosuf our butler was great arranging the special dinners and making our stay so relaxing.
Thank you for the great time !! I would recommend anyone to come here !!!!
