In the South-western atoll of Dhaalu, in the middle of the Indian Ocean, Niyama is an exciting, contemporary luxury resort. It makes the most of its spectacular location, with golden sands, warm sun and views over the ocean, but Niyama also puts an emphasis on fun, with a whole range of restaurants and bars, including a floating restaurant and the world's first underwater nightclub. It's perfect for anyone who enjoys a spot of luxurious relaxation but also has a sense of adventure.
Signature treatments at the Lime Spa use local ingredients such as Maldivian coral sand and coconut oil to leave your skin polished and nourished. Every treatment can be tailored to your precise needs and, before and after your treatment, you can relax in Sublime, an oasis of tranquillity with its garden of lime trees, sauna, steam room and pools.
Each of Niyama's 86 studios and pavilions has its own large terrace, plus air-conditioning, tea and coffee facilities, telephone and TV. Many of the studios have outdoor bathrooms, and some have private pools and even their own private areas of beach.
While you could be forgiven for never wanting to leave your room, there's far more to Niyama than just luxurious relaxation. As you'd expect from the location, there's a full range of watersports, from fishing to jetskiing, waterskiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing and kitesurfing. Take a snorkelling trip with the resort's resident marine biologist to learn more about what lies beneath the ocean then, after dark, dance all night at Subsix, the world’s first underwater club.
Niyama has a huge range of dining options. The Edge restaurant serves modern international cuisine and cocktails from a spectacular location, floating on its own private jetty, only accessible by boat. The outdoor grills at Tribal serve up an adventurous mix of tastes from South America, Africa and Asia, while Epicure brings you all-day poolside dining, and the Deli offers a huge range of takeaway options. For something more private, take advantage of the extensive room-service menu, or let Niyama organise a personalised dining adventure for you.
