Niyama Private Islands

Home to some of the most innovative dining experiences in the Maldives, Niyama Private Islands is a world-class property.

The resort inspires adults and children alike with its unique offerings, from the PUMP gym and indoor game haven ACTIVE to water activities both above and below the waves...not to mention a 3D Silent Cinema (the first in the Maldives), a world-class surf break and tennis.

Located in the North Dhaalu Atoll, the resort’s 135udios and pavilions boast contemporary Maldivian design, plasma screen TV’s, BOSE surround sound and an in-room deli concept, which all in all make it hard to tear yourself away from your plush private space! Outdoor bathrooms, some with fibre optic-lit pools, and a choice of beach and over-water settings ensure the luxurious feel of the Niyama accommodation options.

You’ll find a huge selection of dining choices throughout the day and night at Epicure, lighter bites in the Maldives’ first deli, African village dining by the campfire at Tribal, treetop Asian delights in Nest and sophisticated al fresco over-water fare at Edge. If you want to head to the spa after dinner or before breakfast, you can here, as the resort’s Drift Spa offers guests the chance to indulge in treatments 24-hours a day.

Activities and Entertainment

Children and adults alike will have a brilliant time in ACTIVE, an entertaining gaming hub with simulators, darts, PS3, Xbox, remote control vehicles, foosball, table tennis and a pool table. The 24-hour fitness hub, PUMP, is a great place to keep up your health regime at Niyama. The cutting-edge gym also boasts studio space for Zumba, Tai Chi and much more.

To make the most of the unforgettable waters surrounding the Maldives, take advantage of the watersports centre and PADI certified diving. We highly recommend spending a day fishing on the Indian Ocean. The Marine Biology Lab features a resident marine-biologist, ensuring your holiday is both educational and fun. Why not adopt your own coral, or learn about the magnificent underwater environment around the atoll by taking part in a guided snorkelling trip. Alternatively, Night Snorkelling 'CSI Marine' offers guests a unique experience – encounter the region’s fluorescent marine life at night-time in the resort’s House Reef.

Another popular excursion is a private sail on a dhoni, a traditional Maldivian boat. Stop off for a sunset picnic on a sandbank, or simply sail around the atolls – perfect! If that all just sounds too much, enjoy an iconic experience at the incomparable Drift Spa.
