Hi Angela,

Thank you so much for organising our honeymoon. 

After such an amazing wedding, it was literally the best holiday I have ever had .

From the moment we arrived in Male we were looked after like royalty. Once we got to Niyama it was better than I could have imagined. Our room was stunning over the lagoon. 

We had everything we needed at the resort. Chris was thrilled with the choice of activities and we went dolphin watching, snorkelling at a few offshore reefs , windsurfing plus more . I still managed to have a few massages at the blissful spa and lots of afternoons reading my book with a cocktail next to the pool! My favourite thing was heading over to Edge for drinks at sunset. What a beautiful part of the world.

Thank you for the upgrade and meal inclusions. You made our honeymoon so special.

I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone travelling to the Maldives !

Kindest regards

Louise- Brisbane

Niyama was the perfect resort for us. It was beautiful and lively with great dining options. We loved the under-water bar!!! Thank you Extraordinary Escapes for arranging a perfect Wedding Anniversary for us. We couldn't have asked for anything more and you thought of absolutely every detail for us. We will be recommending you to all of our friends.

Niyama is part of the Per AQUUM resort collection and is the sister property to the very well known Huvafen Fushi Resort. Niyama could be decribed as the more playful and upbeat version of the more sophisticated yet chilled Huvafen Fushi. Like Huvafen, Niyama also offers the Thakaru or butler service. On arrival you meet your Thakaru and they will look after your every need.

The resort is very lucky to have a beautiful house reef located in front of the island. The island size is large enough to offer space but not too large, maintaining that more boutique feel. The resort pool is extremely inviting, surrounded by brightly coloured yellow umbrellas and pool furnishings. You can't help but feel happy and relaxed here.

Niyama has a unique food outlet called the Deli. The Deli sells gourmet paninis and light healthy lunch options that you can walk in and buy to eat by the pool, back at your villa or really anywhere you can think of! It is these funky little twists that make Niyama different.

Being the only resort in the Dhaalu Atoll, Niyama has the atoll all to itself, including the surf breaks just off the back side of the island. Surf or snorkel in the morning, spa in the afternoon, dinner fire side followed by an after dinner drink at the underwater bar. What a way to spend the day!

Extraordinary Escapes' Favourite feature: The over-water restaurant Edge is accessible only by boat and is amazing. Follow dinner here with a drink at the world's only underwater bar. Watch the marine life change from day to night. All with a cocktail in your hand!

Must Do: The Deluxe Water Studios are a gorgeous room and with a much larger deck and the stunning green and turquoise interiors, we think they are a beautiful option. Land lovers can't go past the Beach Studios with Pools on the sunset side of the island.

The villas at Niyama are called Studios. They are funky and modern with stylish furniture that is decorated with bright colours. They offer every modern amenity that you could possibly contemplate.

The colour schemes of the Studios at Niyama is very much a feature. The Beach Studios and Beach Studios with Pool are decorated with cream, white and accessorised with bright red. The Beach Studio Bathrooms are an oasis in themselves. They are enourmous outdoor bathrooms with their own water feature and stepping stones through the water to the outdoor shower.

The Water Studios and Deluxe Water Studios are decorated with bright greens, turquoise and white. The private pools are the perfect colour, blending beautifully with the turquoise lagoon. At night they are lit with hundreds of tiny fibre optic lights.

Beach Studios: 160 sqm x 22

Beachfront studios with a modern twist. Views of the crystal-clear lagoon from the wooden terrace. Open-air bathrooms leading to the water garden. The elevated couch swinging in the ocean breeze. A deep tub to steep in. Deli-In snacks for the taking. A trail of stepping stones to a personal waterfall. Plush beds next to sun-soaked decks. Splashes and spirals of crimson against white. Indulgent rain showers. A 40-inch plasma TV and BOSE™ surround sound system – modernity with Maldivian flair. The comforts of luxury, the freedom of nature. Family-friendly studios overlooking a secluded beach.

Must Do: Dine at the over-water restaurant and follow with a drink at the under-water bar. How could you match this anywhere in the world! What is so great about the under-water bar is that you can enjoy it in a very casual way, every day of your stay, day and night. Whereas an under-water restaurant is much more formal with meals averaging $300 per person and is more of a once only event.

Dining at Niyama matches the resort vibe perfectly. It offers multiple options that are all modern and completely unique. The main restaurant Epicure is beautiful and decorated in cool colours. Set around the stunning main pool, breakfasts here are the perfect way to start the day, looking out over the pool with the bright yellow umbrellas spotted around the beach.

Tribal is a true dining experience and certainly is one of a kind. Set by the beach, surrounded by vegetation, this African themed restaurant has a tented roof and fire pits scattered around the sand based floor.

Edge is Niyama's floating restaurant accessible only by boat. It is an amazing dining experience and uniquely Niayma. Follow this with after dinner drinks at Subsix, the world's only underwater bar and it is a perfect evening.


Modern campfire dining. Sand floors. Tiki torches. Local inspiration meets global flair. Tastes from South America to Africa to Asia cooked in the outdoor kitchen. Entrees seared over open flames. Tribal gatherings — a dash of adventure, a pinch of fun.
