Restaurants & bars

What could be more exclusive than a restaurant that’s only accessible by boat? Edge is NIYAMA’s floating restaurant, offering modern cuisine with local flavours, with dining inside against floor-to-ceiling windows, outdoor dining on the jetty and a chill-out bar. Tribal creates a luxury campfire dining experience with outdoor hot-rock grills, live cooking, dining pods for two set directly by the beach and South American, Asian and African flavours. Epicure offers relaxed all-day international dining by the pool and The Deli provides a range of gourmet snacks and treats to take away. The three bars each offer something quite different – Dune is a chilled-out beach hub, Fahrenheit is a cool rooftop bar with ocean views, and of course there’s the epic underwater den, Subsix.

BLU offers all-day family-friendly dining around the pool, with Mediterranean-inspired dishes and a poolside ice-cream parlour packed with home-made treats from smoothies to crêpes. Nest is a real one-of-a-kind in the Maldives – a modern, multi-level treehouse in the heart of the jungle, with private pods suspended six metres from the ground and domed pavilions hidden amongst the trees, where you can enjoy a range of Asian specialties from Thai to teppanyaki.

Spa & wellness

LIME Spa offers six overwater treatment rooms overlooking the lagoon, and two on-island spa sanctuaries that have their own whirlpool, outdoor shower and day bed. Signature treatments use local ingredients including Maldivian coral sand and coconut oil, and can be personalised to each individual. After-dark treatments are perfect for helping with jet-lag and a good night’s sleep.

The excellent Explorers Kids Club runs activities for 4 different age groups: Globetrotters* (1-2 years), Adventurers (3-4 years), Voyagers (5-7 years) and Pioneers (8-12 years).
