Find a very private setting for intimate, one-of-a-kind experiences. With twin islands Play and Chill, Niyama Private Islands Maldives offers up the luxury of choice. At Play: Frolic in the treetops. Rush into the infinite horizon. Kick things up a notch in villas set on white sands and tailored to adventurous honeymooners, active couples and style-savvy families. At Chill: Revel in a peaceful moment within the cocoon of Niyama Spa. Drift in culinary heaven offshore. Soothe your soul to the slow rhythms in over-water studios. Lounge against the flowing oceanscape in Subsix underwater lounge. Located in the South Western Atoll of Dhaalu, Niyama Private Islands is a 40-minute seaplane flight from the Maldives capital Malé.

This is my 10th visit to Niyama, and it just keeps getting better. This resort is a place to center yourself again from your busy lifestyle. I worked out everyday with the celebrity trainer from Los Angeles. I believe Ingrid Clay travels around the world for her clients. I also

We had a family holiday at Niyama and despite we came with high expectations, our holiday was far beyond that! We arrived with the seaplane and we were greeted by the manager and the team including our takhuru, Sham. Each customer has a takhuru which essentially is like your

Niyama is a family resort with a kids club so expect children. There is a even mix of couples and families. I would suggest avoiding term times. Would still recommend for a quiet, romantic getaway. Absolutely beautiful island.
