Niyama is a cool, collected but very child-friendly resort (it has the only crèche in the Maldives for children as young as 12 months). Cunningly situated over twin islands named Chill and Play, linked via a bridge, you can expect a naturally occurring division between luxury-seeking couples and fun-loving families at this barefoot chic resort.
Each private room enjoys blue skies above your open-air bathroom and outdoor rain shower, a full-sized fridge brimming with snacks such as deli items and ice cream, an in-room entertainment system and high-tech toys such as iPads for children, and a ‘Thakuru’ butler service. There are a number of private suites with a fibre optic lit pool and beach pavilions nestled amidst tropical gardens with direct access to powder white sands. We love the overwater pavilions, that come with uninterrupted views of the ocean and private infinity pool.
Active guests will appreciate the range of water sports available and you could easily plan to do something different every day. From boat trips to snorkel sites, catamaran sailing and wakeboarding, to game fishing, kitesurfing and diving at the PADI dive centre, the dazzling vast ocean is there for the taking.
Choose from the many restaurants such as all-day dining at the hip Blu around the family pool or traditional African fare in a unique camp fire setting at Tribal complete with a Masai warrior. Then there is a wonderful Nest, the only restaurant like it in the Maldives, where you dine in a treehouse in the green heart of the island.
If you want to sidle off for a bit of me-time, the children will be pleading to go to the Explorers Kids Clubs, designed to fire the imagination of all ages. With Master Chef classes and a splash park, Niyama makes sure your little ones get the VIP treatment.
NIYAMA Maldives is 40 minutes by sea plane from Malé International Airport.
