Hotel Overview

Two islands

Niyama Private Islands Resort is unique, as it’s made up of two islands with distinctly different moods. The newest of the two, Play, is where you’ll find the beating heart of the resort. The lively beach clubs, lounges and restaurants are ideal for families and fun-seeking couples. It’s connected to Chill – the sleepier, tranquil island – by an easy-access walkway. Here, quiet white sands and tropical greenery are waiting to be explored. Hop between the two for a mix of sunbathing and activities, or stick to the base which best suits you.

Family-friendly choice

While Niyama Private Islands Resort suits lively couples and groups, thanks to the chic bars and beach club over on Play, it’s also ideal for families. Ice-creams and iPads will keep little ones occupied at Blu, or you can take a dip in the adjacent pool together any time. If you’re heading out on a diving trip, the kids will be well-looked after at the Explorer Kids’ Club. There’s a daily timetable of activities designed to entertain and educate little ones about Maldivian culture and how to look after our seas.

Bring the whole family to poolside Blu, which serves up Mediterranean-inspired dishes, tempting ice-cream and fresh breakfasts. Thakurus provide suncream, towels, fruit skewers and ice lollies all day long.


Head under the waves to Subsix. This underwater restaurant serves lunch with a view of the Maldives’ fascinating marine life, while the bi-weekly underwater glow parties let you dance below the lagoon.


This African-inspired restaurant serves dishes and drinks with flavours from across the vibrant continent, including Big Afrikaner ribs, ostrich bites, and honey and lime Dawa cocktails.

Sink your toes into the sand at Dune, a beachside bar dotted with comfortable beanbags, daybeds and loungers. By night, the resident DJ turns Dune into a cool beach club.

Enjoy flaky pastries, lazy lunches and tasty dinners at Epicure, by a sea-view infinity pool. Or, sip one of 18 teas or more than 260 varieties of wine.
