Amazing Getaway Destination (for entire family)
We had an amazing stay at Niyama: a place where you can do everything and nothing at the same time... the choice of activities and restaurants was first rate, and the spaces and privacy to relax and unwind were unparalleled. We will definitely be coming back.
Great family holiday destination
Myself, my wife and our 2 daughters, (8 and 5), spent 10 days at the Niyama Island resort and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The island itself is very beautiful with lots of facilities but the staff made the difference. Our host for the entire 10 days was Affan and he made sure we had everything we wanted. Nothing was too much to ask! And there were others to mention also. Richie from the kids club made sure our kids had a fantastic time each time they visited the kids club. Imran made sure we had fresh coconut drinks everyday. Naj at Blue restaurant always found time to chat to us even though the restaurant was mostly busy. Eda always made sure we had a treat or pleasant surprise in our villa each day. Moses, Ice and Teddy at Epicure restaurant always made us feel very welcome each morning/evening. The kids always looked forward to seeing them. I could go on... Our dining experience at Nest and Tribal restaurants were simply memorable. Overall, a very enjoyable trip. Was expensive but worth every penny.
A fabulous place
My wife and I stayed for 5 nights in November 2019. It was amazing. The entire resort is meticulously clean and wonderfully designed. I’m not sure how they inspire the staff to be consistently friendly and helpful but it was quite surprising that all seemed genuinely happy. The beaches and villas were what we hoped from a high end Maldives resort - beautiful and warming. The food was spectacular. As vegetarians often one feels overlooked at the buffet and at the specialty restaurants but here we were treated to an amazing array of fantastic vegetarian dishes. The chefs take particular pride in ensuring you have the best dining experience. Truly a great place.
Not a great Maldives experience !
We decided to book Niyama as the reviews looked good and seemed family friendly . We stayed at the Lux south Ari Atoll last year and we were blown away , so we thought we would try and beat it! First impressions the island is beautiful and well kept the staff are lovely . We had a beach pool villa which was a nice setting not spectacular decor dark wood etz but fine. They supplied bikes for the family which for us worked as our kids could manage but if you have kids under 8/9 there are no bikes for them and the fun of it is to cycle everywhere ( although no lights at night , take a torch!) . A real shame was that the island was full , but lacked atmosphere in the evening. The food was not great although themed restaurants where different. 2 buffets terrible we felt like we had booked into centre parks ! Half board only offers you $50 a head and this gets you nowhere if you want 2 courses loads of high supplements / You can sadly spend $1000 a day for 4 if you are not careful specially with a few water sports added in! The best bit was the Edge and Subsix which is out at sea we had a very good meal there ( a fortune tho!!) but again no one in there so odd as no atmosphere at all! So much so we decided to leave 5 days into our holiday and book somewhere in Dubai as was getting very boring . The sea was not clear milky , and lots of coral when you walk into the sea . Pools are poor and loungers etz need to be replaced as looking worn out . My advice go to the Lux better value and way more fun !! I’m surprised at such good reviews as most guest I spoke to didn’t not seem happy and felt the same as us .
