“I stayed just one night but loved it. The colour contrasts are amazing and uplifting and the facilities incredible. Romantic of course… I thought I would be impressed, but it exceeded my expectations at every turn!” – MH, CHIC Locations
The design of Niyama Private Islands is chic luxurious and contemporary, bright and colourful with some funky edges. Although it has over 138 studios and pavilions, we think boutique still adds to the description, as so many of the facilities are highly individual and unique.
Located in the southern atoll, 40 minutes by seaplane (daylight hours only) from Male. The resort is split over two islands linked by a small bridge.
Niyama Private Islands has a selection of 138 studios and pavilions.
You have a choice of:
Beach Studios. 135 sqm
Beach Studio with private pool. 190 sqm
Overwater Studio 175 sqm
Deluxe (Over)Water Studio with pool 190 sqm
Family Beach Villa with pool 255sqm. Master bedroom, Living room with space for two extra beds.
One Bedroom (over) Water Pavilion with pool. 340 sqm
One Bedroom Beach Pavilion with pool. 400 sqm
Two and three bedroom Beach Pavilions, ranging from 635 up to 770sqm
And then you have 5 villas within the ultra-exclusive and private Crescent Over Water Suites. Ideal for large families or groups as you need to purchase all five villas, they are not sold independently.
The accommodation is nicely spread over the two islands, nicely titled “Chill” which was the original and “Play” which consists of the newer rooms and many of the restaurants and kids club.
Numerous wonderfully innovative restaurant options in differing locations
Dive centre ( Plus this area is one of the few that offers surfing possibilities , with several options between 5 and 10 minutes by speedboat from the resort )
Two main swimming pools
Under water lounge and cocktail bar serving light snacks
Kids club, split into 3 sections depending on age – Up to 12 years
Niyama Private Islands Resort is wonderfully innovative. It is stylish and innovative, but comes with a broad smile as well. Funky elegance with a sense of humour.
The facilities are fantastic. The beach is rated as one of the best in the region. Popular with romantic couples, as well as families.
