Beautiful hotel, great staff, superb food, fun activities!
We absolutely loved our stay here. We are a family of 4 (our boys are 8 and 9 years old). This is the perfect family place. They have a kids center which is great for younger (under 8 years old) children. The recreation/game room is great for older kids (our boys loved it: ping pong, pool and chess). The GM and staff are great! The food was wonderful. We loved getting the boys surf lessons and renting the jet ski. Being able to bike around the island was super fun for the entire family. This is a 10/10 for a family.
The best place in the world to break the pandemic
We were with family for two weeks, March 15th to March 29th. Clean air, wonderful beaches, privacy. The whole world narrows to one island. Surprised by the night sky, many stars can only be seen in the middle of the ocean. No pandemic, no stress. Enjoy life.
Amazing Resort & Staff
We have spent 10 days at Niyama and the Hotel is absolutely gorgeous. The staff is super friendly and helpful, especially our Butler Wisham was of great help and made our stay unforgettable. The villas are clean and comfortable. There is a great range of restaurants available on the island. We had the chance to try all of them and Nest was our favorite. We are definitely looking forward to coming back to the Island very soon.
Out of this world, we can’t thank you enough
A group of 6 friends, we have just spent the last couple of weeks at Niyama, just as the Coronavirus pandemic took hold globally. Despite the immense pressure, with flight restrictions and cancellations, extremely worrying news stories from around the world, and our anxieties for our children, families and friends at home, the whole island team at Niyama ensured that our holiday remained perfect. The quality of service was impeccable, and it was obvious that the staff took great pride in the service they provided, and also in the resort itself. The personal butler service is the best we have experienced, very easy to make arrangements, always on hand, yet never intrusive. Thank you so much Renjian. The food was always wonderful, and again the staff made every effort to ensure that we enjoyed every meal. The dining experience at Edge and Tribal restaurants is exceptional, really top class, hard to believe how good, considering the fact we were on a small island in the middle of Indian ocean. We would like to pass on our best wishes to the General Manager, Haf, his management team, and the whole resort team......thank you all so much for your help and support and we hope that the current disruption is short lived. We are thinking of you xx
To paraphrase the old Stella advertisement, if you want the best you tend to have to pay a little more. Niyama impresses much with a wide variety of activites in the day, and resturants at night. For coubles, you will find it a blessing that there is "Explorers" kids club so youngsters are kept away and quiet for most of the day. You still have to suffer the odd screaming imfant over breakfast (or dinner if you chose the main resturants, but you can avoid them by chosing one of the a la carte options). Too many resturants to mention, and we tried most (if not all) of them, but our favourite has to be Nest. Situated up in the trees and presented with a mainly far-east asian menu this is the best resturant we found; better even than the signature Edge resturant which is a short boat-taxi trip from the jetty, cannot be reached by foot, and is very exclusine. There is very little wrong with Niyama, and what niggles there may be are not worth mentioning as all staff we met made teh whole hiliday enjoyable. NOTHING to complain about here. . . expect maybe teh time it takes to travel to get here from the UK. . . Not a trip for the faint hearted but the destination is worth it. I hope you like hot sunny weather, as that is all you get !!
