The islands are beautiful and incredibly well maintained, good variety of dining options, service is incredibly attentive, and room was beautifully appointed. The biggest plus was the huge free breakfast buffet and quiet beaches. There was never a crowd anywhere and often there were more empty chairs than occupied at the beach. Tribal, the African inspired restaurant is fantastic, Blu... More

Let's start with the obvious: this place is epic. We had a wonderful stay at both the beach and water villas. The islands (yes, there are two of them) are beautiful and we love the idea of cycling everywhere: to the restaurants, jetty, and even the various serene spots around the islands. The restaurants serve delicious food, the best being... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
NIYAMA, which opened in March 2012, is Per AQUUM's latest addition to an award-winning resort portfolio. This hotly anticipated resort is turning the Maldives upside down with a plethora of options to get guests active and incite a sense of discovery, stimulation and fun. This exciting new concept is, of course, paired with the natural beauty and tranquility of the Maldives so those who just want to sit back, chill out and relax can do so in style. Try the games simulators, enjoy yoga, tai chi or zumba, kick up your heals at Subsix the world's first underwater music club, or simply relax and watch the sunset from Fahrenheit rooftop bar. Located in the South Western Atoll of Dhaalu, NIYAMA is a 40 minute seaplane flight from the Maldives capital Male'. Innovative dining options include Tribal, which brings a new unique concept to the Maldives. Designed like a modern day campsite, guests sit in specially designed pods surrounded by live cooking stations with dishes influenced by tribes from South America, Africa and Asia. Cooking methods include hot rock grills, asados and open flames. Per AQUUM's Deli-In presents an a la carte menu of gourmet deli items such as ice creams, cheeses, olives, cold cuts and wines all pre-stocked in each Studio and Pavilion. The in-room popcorn makers with complimentary corn kernels add that additional element of fun. Fahrenheit is perfect for refreshing drinks throughout the day transforming into one of island hot spots at night with spectacular ocean and sunset views. ... more   less
