    Paradise in Paradise

    Our trip was planned as a "vacation of a lifetime," and it was everything expected plus more. The island is gorgeous with pristine Indian Ocean waters abound, and world-class service. The villas were amazing, spacious, and extraordinarily clean. The staff at Niyam was absolutely wonderful and you could feel the sense of service in their delivery. What was really nice was the opportunity to lay back and relax, or be very active with the many activities available on the island. We would come back in a heart beat and highly recommend this resort to anyone, families with children, adults, singles, anyone attempting to escape the craziness in our world.

    The Maldives, in general, is absolutely spectacular. What makes Niyama special is the staff. The level of hospitality is really unbelievable. MANY people really stood out, but our Thakaru (Mahey), the Spa staff (Tara and May), the ENTIRE staff at Epicure (Kudy, Asso, and everyone else) really stood out as being the best of the best. The only criticism I have is that we had one service issue at one of the restaurants. It was minor and was corrected easily. The really impressive thing is how eager the management is to receive constructive feedback. They even have a cocktail reception once a week for that specific purpose. The food was outstanding (make sure to book Sub 6 in ADVANCE. Nest too. The facilities were GREAT. I initially didn't care about having a pool in an over-water villa, but I was WRONG. . .we used it multiple times per day. On the excursions. . .we saw dolphins within 30 seconds of leaving the lagoon and we saw 4 turtles on the turtle quest. When we go back, we will do far more excursions. We are even considering getting SCUBA certified

    Oh let's what there was to like 🤔 Oh how about everything? There was absolutely nothing horrible about our stay here. I went for my honeymoon and this place is worth every single dollar. Niyama is among the most southern of the resorts for the Maldives, and it does not disappoint. The views was stunning. We stayed in the deluxe over water villa, and the pictures can't even come close to doing justice to actually seeing it and being there. The room and bathroom are amazing and extremely modern. The staff also was able to accommodate my request as to maximize our privacy and get the best possible view of the sunset from our villa. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Also the restaurants, there are 4 specialized restaurants there and we did one each day. The Subsix is probably the most unique experience I think, it's an underwater setting and extremely cool. I would recommend doing lunch there instead of dinner. The Edge is next to the Subsix and provides an experience in the Lagoon on its on platform over the water. You have to take a ferry from a dock on one of the main islands to the place. Edge and Subsix both serve mostly seafood, although there a few other dishes that are available that aren't from the sea. Well worth the experience. The other two restaurants were Tribal and Nest. Nest is pretty neat, it provides a treetop setting and is unique. Nest serves Asian dishes from various places. Tribal is African themed and also awesome. I can't type more. 1500 limit :(

  • 8.0.Very good

    Das Hotel ist sehr sauber und gut organisiert. Leider, könnte es für diese Preiskategorie wieder einmal renoviert werden. Ärgerlich war auch der Preis im Spa. Das alles sehr hochpreisig ist, weiß man im Vorhinein und ist völlig ok aber 530$ für 60 min Relaxmassage für zwei ? Ist etwas übertrieben...

    Cuidado

    Quarto completamente mofado e com cheiro muito ruim. Travesseiro com odor de mofo. Comida ruim a razoável. Esse hotel não é cinco estrelas. O ponto alto foi o atendimento da nossa hostess, Erin, que fez de tudo para nos servir da melhor forma possível.
