Excellent holiday with the resort
Impeccable service by the staff and everything is perfect. My partner has already reviewed in detail on tripadvisor. We truly enjoyed our stay in Niyama. Unforgettable experience.

A paradise!
The facilities are wonderful, clean and neat and the enviroment is kid's friendly . The kids club is great! The only thing is that you have to be aware of the sea plane timings, we had to do some last minute changes in the itinerary, but thanks God everything went fine. Really worth every penny.

enjoyed my stay
resort experience was excellent in total, however, the food experience was a bit less than both either one and only or anantara kihava. pros: 1 good island size 2 good kids club and activity 3 good value compare with others 4 they let us extend the checkout till 3pm without asking them 5 deluxe water villas has pretty much privacy 6 the room size and furniture was good specially the bathrooms 7 SPA was one of the best in Maldives 8 don't miss Tribal buffet cons: 1 long time waiting in the airport approximately 2:20 min 2 huge pillows which makes it very difficult to sleep 3 food should improve a bit 4 it seems that the staff were new, lack of experience 5 we asked many times to provide us with bicycles and after two days they sent us broken bicycle. also the bicycle doesn't have your villa number so some one might take your bicycle without knowing 6 i stayed in both beach villa and water villa, and the beach villa was full of insects

A Gem in Maldives that is second to none
This has to be one of the most professional, exotic, dream destinations on the planet. The infrastructure, quality of workmanship along with landscaping and facilities blew my mind (usually i stay at St Regis,Niyama rated on par). We had a personal butler (i would like to call him PA) named Jusoof (hope specling is correct) Jusoof made the trip so amazing and no request was to difficult for him, no matter what we asked Jusoof could accommodate. All food establisments on the island have a massive wide range of tasteful delights (extremely fresh).. Even better was the choices for alcohol selection... was able to purchase 30 year macallan whiskey shots while smoking a cigar as the sun set (heaven) . Wife has Dom perignon ! Tribal restaurant is a must... the Service is top notch! Food was fanstastic! Tribal restaurant should be something expected in a big city be here it is in Niyama just mind blowing..ambiance food everything was just mind blowing..... Not the cheapest place in the world but have to say money well spent ! a definite bucket list place (but i do hope to go back) Do rent the jets for 1 hour with guide, took us to secluded sand dune ( the color of the water being turquiose will blow your mind as its heaven on earth) we saw dolphins, sharks, rays and sea turtles... the guide that we had made sure we would see so much and his hard efforts paid off.. ( this is done by Float team) hats off to the them....i can't compliment this place enough, you have to go and see for yourself.... The seaplane is part of the fun while not cheap well worth it...,45 minutes seems like 5 minutes as the view is breath taking....its a MUST MUST MUST....

Everything is perfect
Room, water sports, view
It is so impressive, everything is perfect and make us an unforgetable honeymoon travel. We stay there 4 day and 3 nights, times flies, still not enjoyed. Water sports is so nice, like snokling, sunset fishing and dophlin cruise. We will come again in the future. It is a place worthing being there.
