This is the rundown for an incentive trip Lightfoot Travel organised for a wealth management company to the beautiful Maldivian resort of Niyama.

Day 1: Arrival

On arrival into Male clients will be met by a representative and transferred 40 minutes by private seaplane to the stunningly chic island resort of Niyama Maldives.

Once everyone has settled down lunch will be served, and the rest of the afternoon will be spent relaxing by the pool or at the beach, or snorkelling in the fabulous reef that surrounds the resort.

In the evening, a welcome dinner for the group at the modern campfire dining restaurant, Tribal, awaits. Think sand floors, tiki torches and cuisine ranging from Asia to South America to Africa, all cooked over an open flame. Then, what better way to spend your first night in paradise than a nightcap at Subsix, the world’s first underwater club? With international DJs and glass walls that offer views into the spotlit sea, guests will get over any jetlag and post-flight soreness by dancing the night away six metres below the sea.

Day 2: Day of sailing

After a relaxing breakfast at Epicure, the group will spend a day sailing around the atolls on traditional dhonis, or wooden Maldivian boats. Fishing off the side of these boats on the beautiful Indian Ocean provides a real highlight. A picnic lunch will be enjoyed on the sandbanks of a deserted island.

The group will then return to Niyama in the late afternoon, and relax by the pool before dinner. Sundowners will be ready at Farenheit, Niyama’s sunset rooftop bar, with specialty cocktails and live music.

Day 3: Leisure time at the hotel

Today, the group will relax at leisure in the hotel. Activities included fabulous snorkeling on the house reef or scuba diving with an experienced guide in one of the world-class dive sites in the area. There is a fitness centre where guests could opt to work out in the state-of-the-art technology gym. Guests can also take turns enjoying the eight treatment rooms at Lime Spa, featuring natural ingredients and a range of treatments in a relaxing environment.

In the evening the group will head to Edge, Niyama’s exclusive overwater restaurant and lounge, accessible only by boat. Here they will feast on the freshest seafood paired with beautiful wines and enjoyed panoramic views. The perfect last evening to a wonderful holiday.

Day 4: Departure

The day will be spent relaxing and using the resort’s facilities before catching flights back home.
