This visionary playground balances tranquil beauty with innovation, style, chill and opulence.

A spectacular 40-minute seaplane transfer from Malé (speedboat transfers from lesser known Dhaalu Airport are also available), Niyama Private Islands Maldives takes barefoot luxury to an exotic new level. Considering itself ‘nature’s playground’, Niyama reposes on a turtle breeding ground within an atoll that sees plenty of spinner and bottlenose dolphins.

Niyama’s two immaculately kept twin islands - Chill and Play - are a tropical paradise with lush vegetation, ivory white beaches, crystal clear waters and endless views out over the Indian Ocean. Chill is for the romantics whereas Play has a family focus. The 1½ miles resort of pure unadulterated bliss, is a mix of modern and traditional Maldivian design and facilities, with a cool, edgy feel where guests can choose between total privacy and an extraordinary range of activities.

Just a sample of the innovation is the world’s first underwater nightclub, (admittedly, it doubles as a mere restaurant too) six metres beneath the waves and accessed in true VIP style via speedboat. Dance with the mermaids amid the clam shaped bar, with soft anemone chairs beneath capiz shells draped from the ceiling. Sticking with the six metre theme, Nest can be found six metres high up in the treetops, with private dining pods suspended among the Banyan trees. Niyama really is something special and unique and it’s no wonder it was placed 4th in Condé Nast Traveler’s ‘Best Resorts in the World’ category. Discover why yourself.

Jump back and forth between high-energy indulgences and cool serenity.

Niyama really does have an innovative array of ways to Chill and Play. Float through the darkness and glimpse species by torchlight at night reef snorkeling. Bask in morning’s first rays and salute the sun with yoga at dawn. Zoom through the lagoon on an underwater rocket, or sail away for sunset dolphin spotting. From kids’ Zumba to romantic Dhoni cruises with vintage bubbles, dozens of magical diversions await.

Snorkelling can be done straight off the island and non-motorised watersports including kayaking are complementary. PADI dive courses and motorised watersports are also available. The Surf Shack encourages guests to get to grips with some excellent surf breaks, either just offshore or a five-minute speedboat ride away. For a slower pace, the LIME Spa offers treatments both day and night and there’s a gorgeous infinity pool with children’s area and poolside cabanas. Entertainment at Active includes computer games and two simulator rooms.

Niyama has a myriad of fun and unconventional dining experiences too. At Nest, sumptuous Asian avant-garde cuisine in a surreal tree top setting; Tribal serves Afro Latin grilled food on hot rock grills amidst blazing fires; fine dining at the signature restaurant, Edge, with its sail-like white roof, accessible only by boat; the amazing Subsix underwater den for Champagne breakfasts, subaquatic lunches, and destination dining – every night guests can try something new.

And for thee true romantics, private Dhoni boats head out overnight and anchor next to a private island. Sail at sunset with the dolphins for company and sip champagne on the huge oversized on-deck bean bags – utter heaven and ideal for romantic magic!
