Niyama Private Islands Maldives


Niyama Private Islands Maldives is spread over two islands - 'Play' and 'Chill' - connected by a wooden bridge. This luxury hotel in the Maldives is great for young couples looking for a little nightlife, but it also works for families as there is a wide range of activities on offer.

Niyama offers private studios, suites, and pavilions that are either built over the water or come with direct beach access. Beach Studios with Pools feature custom-made beds and outdoor decks with plunge pools. Each one comes with an outdoor bathroom, and a personal thakuru (butler) ensures your stay seamless.

The Edge, Niyama’s signature restaurant and lounge floats on the lagoon surface and serves African, Asian, South American, and Middle Eastern cuisine.

Drift Spa has treatment rooms, a sauna, and a steam room. After dark, there’s live music at Fahrenheit and glow parties at the world’s first underwater nightclub, Subsix. On land, there’s a 24-hour games room with air hockey, a cinema, and a pool table.

Why we recommend Niyama Private Islands Maldives

Here's a hotel that's an ideal mix of modern and traditional Maldivian design: Niyama Private Islands' USP is the two bedroomed over water accommodation which is a rarity in the Maldives. Made up of two islands, ‘Chill’ boasts a strong family focus whereas ‘Play’ is more dedicated to couples. This is also one of the only resorts from where you can surf directly from the beach.
