Beach Jamming


– Rum, Ribs & Reggae and Asian ‘Took Took’ Street Food –

Niyama Private Islands Maldives is famous for its culinary diversity and variety of restaurants and dining experiences across its two islands. Guests can savour Asian avant-garde cuisine in a treetop setting at Nest and African meets South American dining amidst blazing fires in the jungle at Tribal. Under and over the sea they can indulge in Champagne breakfasts six metres below the ocean’s surface at Subsix and modern fine dining located half a kilometre from shore at Edge. And now the list of dining adventures has become even longer with the introduction of two new, weekly beach dining experiences – Took Took Street Food on the Beach and Rum, Ribs and Reggae.

Took Took – Street Food on the Beach


Now guests can savour tasty Asian street food dishes on the beach, carefully prepared and grilled over coals by Niyama’s chefs at Took Took, the resort’s new pop ups, destination dining concept. Bamboo teepee frames draped in fairy lights and hurricane lamps tower over a lounging and dining area set-up beneath the open sky. Relax in snug beach armchairs with toes in the sand, while enjoying coral painted sunsets, glasses of bubbly, and creatively presented street food.

Asian street food is a melting pot of cultures and tradition reflecting Asia’s diversity and versatility and is now a quintessential part of the culinary experience at Niyama. Dishes are made to delight with distinct and complex flavours. Navigate the old-world secrets and generous spices behind Bangkok, Hanoi, Jakarta and Beijing’s sweet and spicy street food scenes.

Rum, Ribs & Reggae


Perched on a prime location overlooking the waves, including Niyama’s very own surfable wave – Vodi, the cool vibes of Surf Shack offer the perfect wrap to end a day of riding the waves or relaxing on a pool lounger. Every week a new wave of fans can enjoy the Rum, Ribs and Reggae Party.

As the sun sinks below the horizon, shake things up with exotic rum cocktails flavoured with passionfruit, citrus, and cinnamon. Delectable rum-based drinks and punch are accompanied by tasty ribs and the laid back vibes and reggae tunes of resort DJ Fajja. The unforgettable rum concoctions and music make it impossible not to linger, either relaxing in a hammock watching the waves in the moon light, or dancing with sand between the toes.
