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!

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

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!!!🌸🌸🌸

The trip was great. Everything was exceptional. Youkay is the best guy in the island. He’s super nice and helpful. I can’t just explain the way he helped us in the island in case we want anything or book a restaurant or a spa. The hospitality is Beyond what you would expect.

Actually in Maldives not so many hotels with 2 separated bedrooms. But in Niyama a lot of Family villas, that why we have selected this hotel. Next options to select is: + Food diversity. A lot of restraunts here. + Kid's club. It's really ***** 5 stars club. 7y. child is happy. Also funny bonus is pop-corn maker in villa :) In the hotel not available reception. It's a little bit strange. For every villa put special man with buggy. One man with buggy/booking/financial help. Our man was Davron. He successful helped us during 2 weeks. What's bad... When we came to hotel we have received the most ugly Villa... #138. With really bad beach. There a lot of stones and corals... We have asked Davron about it and he has helped to change for better beach Villa (#128). Thanx. But i think hotel level must just don't have bad Villas. Must clean beach must better near #138. (See photo of that beach). Also, weather was with rain :( July is not good season.. In villa #128 was perfect cleaning service everyday. Thanx! We also liked: - unique restraunts: - under the ocean SubSix - on a tree Nest - african restraunt Tribal - game club (PS5 / XBox) Thank you for vacation. Good luck!

First, I have to start by stating our Thakuru Shanun was awesome. He made my family’s stay at the resort special, effortless and saw to all of our needs. My children loved him and this resort has a gem on their hands with him. Second, all of the staff were great and very hospitable. I must give a special thanks to the hostesses at the morning breakfast restaurant. We stayed in one of the pavilions and the room was beautiful and well suited for a family. The children loved the kids club and activities center. We really enjoyed the laid back and carefree feel of the resort. You are able to ride bicycles and explore and you don’t have to worry about any over populated beaches because you can easily find a deserted space that is just your own. We will definitely return. Until we see you all again @ the Niyama Team.
