A playground resort in the Maldives

Niyama Private Islands offers more than a luxury retreat in the Maldives. Going beyond conventional concepts of lavish accommodation, sumptuous cuisines, and lavish services, Niyama Private Islands presents every visitor with myriad opportunities to create their own exceptional island experience.


With twin islands Play and Chill, Niyama offers you the true luxury of choice, with everything expected from an island resort and so much more.


Chill is true to its name. You can discover new depths of relaxation at The Drift Spa, or take in a movie under the stars at the outdoor cinema. Just off the coast, Edge prepares elegant entrées from freshly caught seafood, while Subsix will delight with its underwater panoramas.


Play provides delightful diversions for those looking for more active pursuits. On the water, you can kayak around the islands or discover why Niyama is among the hottest surfing destinations. Bicyclists can explore the island at their own pace, perhaps lured by the aromas from the chef’s spice gardens.


These are only just the start of the experiences to be had on Niyama Private Islands. Be spoiled for choice.



Privacy is paramount at Niyama. Every one of Niyama Private Islands’ 134 accommodations provide a secluded retreat, even at full capacity. The inviting waters in and around the islands are literally at your feet, from the beach front villas to the over-water pavilions to the extravagant entourage experience at the Crescent. There are no meagre accommodations at Niyama Private Islands.


Villas and Suites all feature large decks to soak in the sun, bathrooms with private outdoor showers for a back-to-nature feel, with the options for private pools or Jacuzzis. Pavilions add living and dining areas to the private deck and swimming areas with the three-bedroom pavilions boasting two swimming pools and a personal spa treatment room. No matter the selection, you will find your accommodation brimming with the most modern amenities, delicious gourmet treats filling the fridge (and your own popcorn machine), and a private Thakuru (butler) service at your beck and call, for a truly personalised private island experience.


And, of course, everywhere you turn at any location, you will be enamoured by breath-taking sea and island views.


The jewel in the resort’s crown is the magnificent Crescent, a playground of five ultra-chic villas, all with private pools, for up to 14 adults and eight children. Boasting a private chef, two butlers, a housekeeper and a host of complimentary activities including a sunset dhoni cruise and movie under the stars, this over water sanctuary is the perfect paradise treat for the discerning traveller with extended families.


Family friendly activities and services

Niyama Private Islands does not treat our youngest guests as afterthoughts. Every island activity and more has been customised to thrill and entertain children from 12 months to 12 years old. More than just a playground with board games and DVDs, Explorers Kids Club schedules diverse age-appropriate activities – baby yoga, snorkelling safaris, pizza making, island treasure hunts and much more.


Parents can join in the fun with their children, or if they need some grown-up time, Niyama has a staff of highly trained baby sitters and nannies, certified to European standards, ready to take care of your precious ones.
