We have just passed a wonderful five days at Nika, truly an island from paradise. We definitely recommend the beach villas which are spacey and have great gardens and small stretches of private beach. The staff are all amazing and go out of their way to provide exceptional customer service, that is, all except for Lucy the Guest Relations Officer.... More

This is a nice resort, though I would not have given them all the stars they say they have. We booked 2 nights for the Water Villa (on stilts) and 3 nights for the Deluxe Beach Villa. The former was quite nicely done, and pretty much the same as in other resorts; only issue was the sewage smell and dark... More

We visited Nika during our honeymoon, we wanted a paradise island, with privacy and quiet environment and we got this and much more. Everything is very well thought, we got a beach villa, very spacious, very comfortable bed, big bathroom and the beach space, which is awesome. The view while laying in your hammock under the palm trees is just... More

We stayed there in last week of May,2016 along with our kids. We all enjoyed our stay a lot, staff was very helpful and courteous , best part of the resort is you can have your own private beach that gives you complete privacy.

Was in Nika for my honeymoon in 2015. We were staying in one of the water villas, which opens directly into the sea. It was unlike anything I had seen before.

Breathtaking beauty inside waters and out. I can't say enough - you'll have to experience it for yourself ❤ For me it was ideal as I really needed a private beach to myself - just beware at around 7-8 am, some men will come unannounced into your beach area to clean. Many thanks to the resort coordinator Lucy for being... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nika Resort is the only island in the Maldives where all the bungalows have their private beach, the best place for a complete relax. Nika is completely surrounded by a wonderful house reef and it’s dense of a luxurious vegetation where the bungalows are perfectly hidden. There are two bars where the guests can enjoy music, happy hours, wonderful sunsets, board games, library and satellite TV or just chill out in the breeze of the ocean. The Coffee Shop is located close to the main beach, is the ideal place to watch the sun go down after a lazy day basking in its brilliance. The restaurant also boasts a deck where one can dine with candles, the twinkling stars and the waves rolling on to the beach. Most of the food items and ingredients are imported directly from Italy.Some of the most interesting diving areas in Ari Atoll lie close to Nika Island: Maaya Thila (Shark point), Dinolugaa (Manta point), Ganghei Kandu, Matiburi, Maalos Thila, Kuda Thila and Miyaruga Thila are incredibile dives sites. ... more   less
