We took a family holiday at Niyama. Was a third visit to Maldives for some of us and first visit for others. First visit to Niyama … Unique Maldives resort with 2 islands, each of which is quite large by Maldivian standards … Means that there is lots to do, and amazing views to enjoy from sunrise to sunset from different parts of islands. We had a truly wonderful experience, thanks for super friendly staff, right from get go. Great restaurant options, amazing Dolphin sightings, lots of cycling and swimming, and more. Sham, our Thakuru, was always there to help us and made our whole stay even more enjoyable, special thanks to him !

Hotel's Favorite
We have just returned from the most amazing holiday. We arrived on the island to a very warm welcome from Pierre (resort manager ) and his staff. Every guest has their very own Thakuru assigned to them- we had Imithi who helped us organise our whole stay, which included our daughters 18th birthday celebrations. We are a family of swimmers, surrounded by the ocean and two pools we were very happy. We went on the coral garden snorkel tour with the Marine Biologist -Pippa, who is very passionate about her job and marine conservation. We also went to all three of her talks which were very informative and geared to all ages- would thoroughly recommend these. Our daughter took surf lessons with Malek, who was a great teacher as proven by the great photos taken by Naomi -the watersports photographer. For me the best way to start the day is with a swim and sun rise yoga- was not disappointed. Thank you to Lenate, Marcyl and Asanka who looked after us so well at breakfast and for the evening meals, at Blu and Epicure. Fine dining in the treetops and cocktails at the surf centre or at Edge are a must during your stay. We are definetly planning on returning . Thank you everyone for a very memorable holiday

My husband, two kids and I stayed at the Niyama for 11 days. I must say that although my expectations were EXTREMELY high for this trip - we had been planning since before the pandemic and it was our 10-year anniversary - this was MUCH better! We were quite tired upon arrival, and we were taken to a private lounge upon arriving in Malé to wait for our seaplane. I must say that with kids, this really helped with our journey! We then got to the hotel and immediately we are greeted by our host, Terry, an exceptional host! He helped us with lunch, dinner and activities reservations, took us to places whenever we needed and was ALWAYS happy and smiling, ready to assist us in everything. My kids at the end of the trip were saying they were gonna stay in the island with him. The hotel was also THE BEST we have ever stayed! (And we travel quite a lot). The room was always spotless, really spacious, the scenery was out of this world, we had a little private pool, a swing, beach access and a natural shower. The massage at the spa was incredible. I will never forget these holidays and we are already planning to go back. We even had a goodbye from housekeeping with flowers and a beautiful message on our bed. The food in ALL of the restaurants was also incredible. My husband and I are foodies and each had one of the best gourmet experiences of our lives. Nest, Subsix and Edge were unbelievably good! I can't recommend this hotel highly enough! Thank you for providing us with this amazing experience!

We had an incredible time at Niyama. The staff is absolutely amazing, efficient and friendly. The resort is out of this world with incredible facilities, restaurants and things to do without leaving the islands. Our host Imthi would address any issue immediately and always be there when we needed. Incredible surf, snorkeling improving with the new reef projects, and swimming. The one thing I would suggest to change would be the price of things not included in the package (from food to trips), which for our budget was generally high. Besides that, it’s a place to go certainly

We visited Niyama Private island last week! What a wonderful stay!! We arrived on this beautiful island where we were very friendly welcomed! Even Pierre, the nice manager was there. Thank you very much Sham for the great service you provided for us! You are the best! You made our stay perfect! Everything was perfectly arranged by you, from arrival to departure. Also special thanks to Imram, the coconut Guru! You were always there for us with a big smile, we will miss you! We love everything about the island, the bikes, the big island, the lovely restaurants, beautiful settings. There is really a lot to do! Jet ski, movie on the beach, snorkling, dolphins, fishing,… Also the drink on the beach with the whole hotel is really nice. The rooms are beautiful and clean. Thank you to the cleaning staf.

We just returned from Niyama, and the quote above pretty much sums up the whole experience we had. It frees you, your body, and mind. The service is impeccable, and all the people at Niyama are genuinely friendly, helpful, and certainly multilingual! Children will have a blast at the Kids Explorer Club, so much that they refuse to come back! Kudos to Sabrina (who is fondly known as Sa-bi bi) and the manager of the Kids Explorer Club. They are so warm and lovely, the kids love them to bits! Small little touches warm our hearts the most - from staff brushing sands off our bicycle wheels, and almost all the staff who have met us will make a point to remember where we seat, and our preferences. Special mention to Nuriya who is always smiling, helpful, and attentive to the needs of the kids. We are so lucky that we had many sunny days, and had great fun snorkeling around the premise of Niyama, and out in the sea with the lads from the Niyama activity center (they are superb!). Because of them, we saw sea turtles, hundreds of dolphins, reef sharks, and lots of beautiful creatures. The restaurants serve awesome different varieties of delicacies every day. The manager at Blu is so knowledgeable and friendly too and I must say, the Mediterranean cuisine is one of the most authentic. The photographer at SNAP, Orea, takes really great photos! If you guys ever visit Niyama, you should engage him. We certainly have no regrets!!!! Last but not least, the most important guy we have had during this trip - SHANUN, our Thakuru, who is always on standby to assist us with every little thing we need. He is attentive, professional, charming 😊, meticulous, and extremely knowledgeable. Thanks to him, our stay is seamlessly smooth. Pierre, the resort manager, also made it a point to welcome us and send us off, which we truly appreciate. There is nothing we can pick on, at Niyama. It is too perfect. The services are beyond our expectations. The Maldives is too magical and it is an experience that we will remember for life and certainly will be back for more. I will always remember witnessing the migrating of hundreds of hermit crabs outside our villa, the bright moonlight with a sky full of stars and the sun down cocktail party. Thank you Niyama!

Niyama is the perfect place for family holidays and we just want to go back. The location and premises are beautiful, food was great in all restaurants, riding a bicycle everywhere was magic, snorkeling in our “front yard” was incredible, surf was great, kids club with lots of different activities was a lot of fun for all ages (4, 6 and 10yo) and the staff was always super helpful and smiley. A special word for Shanun that was always super nice and available helping us enjoying the most.

This was our first return to Niyama since the pandemic began and it certainly continued to exceed our expectations. The service level and attention to detail were exceptional. All the staff were friendly, caring and always went out of their way to make our stay perfect. Whether you are a couple on a romantic break looking for privacy or a family with children, Niyama can cater for all. The food is exceptional and every restaurant was able to cater to our dietary requirements with no fuss. I would like to say a special thank you to the following Niyama family that made our trip truly special: Imthi, our Thakaru. Thank you for looking after us! Nikki, Dewi, Sari & Desak at Drift Spa Imran the Coconut Guru Jean, Azim & Oreo at Snap. Thank you for amazing memories that we could take home and a massive thank you for the time spent on a photography lesson with our daughter. The hosting team at Epicure, in particular - Melissa, Naseeh, Mahesh, Aqeel & Tafi The hosting team and chefs at Blue, in particular - Zim, Nelly & Mak All the team and chefs at The Edge - Thank you for the amazing food Philippa - Island's Marine biologist Chefs Karan, Harish, Sahib Finally, thank you to managers Pierre and Steven for orchestrating an amazing holiday. See you all next year!

Good day! What a pleasure to return to this hotel! There is always an atmosphere of comfort and homely hospitality! Thanks to all the staff who made our stay unforgettable! I would especially like to mention Davron, who, like a wizard from a wonderland, helped us throughout the entire period of our stay on the islands! Sensitive, responsive, with a great sense of humor, 100% professional! Thanks to Tom from the Diving Center, thanks to whom our son fell in love with the underwater world forever and still remembers their dive! We wish you to develop and make this paradise on earth even better!!!🌸🌸🌸
