Experience paradise the way you’ve always dreamed of at the unique Maldives resort of Niyama. Set on two neighbouring islands, guests can choose a serene and soothing escape on ‘Chill’ island, plump for fun and action on the island of ‘Play’ or enjoy an amazing combination of action and relaxation swapping between them. Those choosing Chill can laze on pure white sands listening to the rhythm of the waves, or revive their mind and body at the spa. Off shore, guests can dine in the stunning surroundings of the Subsix under water restaurant or enjoy a sunset or dolphin-watching cruise. In comparison, ‘Play’ island is tailored for active couples or thrill-seeking families aiming to dive headlong into thrilling water sports and activities galore. Undersea adventures await you on a scuba diving or snorkelling trip, while little ones can join in the fun at the kids’ club or in the games zone. Guests on both islands will delight in the plush surroundings of the beach and overwater studios, along with the extensive range of cuisines on offer at the resort’s numerous restaurants. So leave your cares behind and prepare to enjoy paradise your way.
