The Home of Chill & Play in the Maldives is Open Again!

Niyama Private Islands reopens in the Maldives to offer space, privacy and its renowned laid-back vibe.

Niyama Private Islands Maldives reopens its doors once again, offering guests an abundance of space and privacy and a multitude of opportunities to create their own exceptional island experience, all with the laid-back vibe that Niyama is known for. A distinct twist on the Maldives with its two islands – Chill and Play – Niyama perfectly blends adventure with serenity in Nature’s Playground.

On Chill, true to its name, guests can hide away and indulge in world-class spa and wellness services at Drift Spa, or take in a movie under the stars at the outdoor cinema. On Play, meanwhile, adventures await above and below the ocean’s surface, from chartering a private dhoni, to snorkelling with turtles and surfing the private waves. Joined by a small bridge, Chill and Play can be discovered on foot or by bike, with all guests having their own set of two wheels, perfect for exploring the spacious islands.

Privacy is – and always has been – paramount at Niyama. Each of Niyama Private Islands’ 134 accommodations provide a secluded retreat. The inviting waters in and around the islands are literally at your feet, from the Beach Villas and the Deluxe Water Pool Villas, to the One-, Two- and Three-Bedroom Beach Pool Pavilions. All options are brimming with the most modern amenities, delicious treats filling the fridge and a private butler service for a truly personalised private island experience.

The jewel in Niyama’s crown is the magnificent Crescent, a private playground of five ultra-chic pool villas, accommodating 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 looking for space and privacy to share with extended bubbles of family or friends.

At Niyama guests are spoilt for choice with world-class dining experiences at sea, underwater, on the beach and in the treetops. Bringing global gastronomy to the Indian Ocean, dining options include Asian flavours whilst perched amongst the trees at Nest, African and Latin American dishes deep in the jungle at Tribal, and succulent fresh seafood at Edge, the resort’s fine dining restaurant found half a kilometre from the shore. Six metres under the ocean, below Edge, guests can enjoy the surrounding marine life whilst dining at Subsix.
