    Our opinion

    Idiosyncratic, ultra modern design combined with local artistry.

    Hotel description

    Per Aquum built on all the experience gained from their successful Huvafen Fushi to create Niyama - a brand new, luxurious, cutting edge island resort where conceptual design is married to local artistry and a whole series of ‘fun’ experiences. This resort is located in the southern Maldivian atoll of Dhaalu and is aimed at clients with a youthful appreciation of the concepts, be it the ‘Lair’, the resort hub with its space to relax, ‘Pump’, the gym with its up to the minute equipment, ‘Niyama Live’, the ultimate dance experience with live DJ, ‘Epicure Deli’, a grab and go delicatessen or ‘Tribal’, a modern-day campsite with a live camp kitchen with campfire dining influences from all over the world. The hi-tech facilities such as BOSE sound systems in the rooms to island-wide WIFI combine with eco-friendly marine biology lab which educates and deals with coral rehabilitation. A holiday at Niyama not only provides you with up to the minute facilities, luxurious rooms, with spacious decks, outdoor bathrooms and perhaps a private pool, with comfort certainly not being compromised. Tranquillity and surprise go hand in hand here. Another fun concept available in the higher category rooms is Deli-in, a fully stocked deli fridge, wine cellar, cocktail bar, fresh juices, ice cream and a Nespresso machine. Niyama also has Aquum, its signature restaurant, and the Maldives’ first restaurant, accessible only by boat. Here is also an underwater club offering the ultimate experience in music and dance. Alernatively there is Epicure, a lively all-day dining concept and Fahrenheit where signature cocktails can be enjoyed in its rooftop bar. Diversions from island life can be found in the Lime Spa with its therapies designed to nurture, heal and restore and here you can also take time to relax amid the tranquil contemplation garden. Hours of distraction can be had from the gadgets and games at your disposal: Wii, PS3, Xbox and remote control boats and cars. An edgy, ultra modern, different and lively resort.
