Rich mans paradise requiring some TLC”
Nika Island Resort is without doubt a paradise island which upon your initial arrival gives you the 'WOW' factor. However after a few days the tired look starts to show through and the lack of things to do (without having to pay a small fortune) drew in the boredom, sadly everything comes at a price on Nika Island. The gym which did come free had limited & working appliances. For a 5 star Island the standard of the food is hugely questionable, at $40 per head you can have the al a carte for evening meal, however the choice on the menu is very limited and at times tasteless. Given the location of the Island, the fish was bland, over cooked and full of bones. The alternative to the al a carte is a bar meal and at $30 for just a cheese pizza the decision of where to eat is debatable. There was meant to be a bbq night which didn't happen, a local music band from a nearby island that didn't turn up. As we were in the Maldives for my partners 50th Birthday, I arranged for an advertised 'romantic' set meal on her special day. At approx $450 the quantity of food was phenomenal despite the seafood being overcooked. Sat in the jacuzzi room the only romantic touch was the 3 candles on the table, more detail needed to have made it romantic. Be warned when checking out..... I paid our room bill with my Visa card and was issued a receipt. I checked with my online banking the next day and saw the converted amount had been taken. To my surprise, 2 days later the money I had paid with my card had went back into my account. Further surprise came 10 days later when the money was draw out of my account again by Nika Resort, but this time it was more than the initial amount charged!!!!!! not impressed especially when I have other house hold bills going out. Thankfully my bank was onside and the £100 bank charges written off. Aside of all the above, the staff were very friendly, the kind thought of a birthday cake was greatly appreciated and the water bungalows are out of this world.

Great resort, but better options available in maldives”
Positives - The water villa we stayed was amazing. Very spacious with enough privacy. Access to ocean from the villa through stairs was awesome. We saw sharks and manta rays. Very spacious villa. The view of the ocean through the glass floor in the living room was awesome. The chef and restaurant waiters were nice people. Negatives - The resort says they are 2 hours ahead of Male time which is absolute bullshit. (Not informed prior)- so check in accordingly to spend maximum time. The resort is around 80km from male airport, so either choose a ridiculously expensive sea plane or a very risky 2 hour speedboat journey. Breakfast and lunch are served on fixed times, so if you don't show up on those times or if you feel hungry between the hours, you have to pay for some very expensive food which doesn't satisfy indian taste buds at all. Bottom line - Ther are much better resorts in maldives for this price, would not go through the long travel to experience nika as nothing unique here.

Whilst not the most modern or luxurious of the resorts it has everything one needs for a relaxing holiday, the staff are very friendly and there are plenty of activities on offer. Food is good although nothing special and the facilities are a little dated. The reefs are excellent Good value for money resort

Great potential for resort but horrible execution ”
House reef, Private beach, Charm of some facilities, friendly cats
The management has turned what was a dated but charming 5 star with great potential into a 3 star cruise ship with poor service. Strict rules on meal times (breakfast 6:30 -8:30AM Male time),assigned seating ( cant use nice outdoor dinning areas) poor food quality and selection. Front office is slow, inefficient and only worried about money they can collect. Rooms dated and fading..New owner and manager is desperately needed. Only positives are great house reef and friendly cats at resort so ok for divers but don't pay more than $300 to stay

The best vacation I have ever had! Amazing place.”
Private beach, very good food and friendly staff.
We had 12 fantastic days at one of the nice deluxe villas on the island. Cleaning twice a day, new towels for beach and bathroom every day. One bedroom, a separate living room, a big bathroom with shower both inside and outside, and a lovely private beach. We were snorkelig at the reef outside the beach every day, among all kinds of fish. The life underwater was amazing to see, if I could, I still would have been snorkelig around there. :) It was some crabs at the beach and geckos at the villa, but that did not bother us at all. They ran away as soon as you looked at them. The staff at Nika were very friendly, helped us whenever we needed, and the food there was very good! One of the days we went to the desert island close to Nika for a romantic dinner. We had the same friendly waiter as the rest of the days. The island were beautiful, it was amazing to see the sunset from there. A unique evening for us. It is many things to do at Nika. They have canoes for rent, a diving center, gym, a spa, a souvernir shop and a bar with good drinks and food. Here they also have evenings with films etc. The Wi-fi at the Island was not the best, but for free, and we manage to do what we needed (just take some longer time). I can recommend Nika Island Spa and Resort for everyone who wants to go to the Maldives. A lovely place!

We had very good time at Nika Island Resort. The food is great, people are very friendly and attentive. The island itself is great for snorkeling and diving. Besides, They also organised several activities per day including fishing trip, watch the Manta, snorkeling trips, etc.

Can be much improved”
Vibrant marine life, privacy (depends),
Frankly, I seldom write bad comments about places I had stayed. But, to the management of Nika Island, if you claim to be a 5-star resort and you want to have a higher number of returning guests (if you have any), you ought to look into the following issues. 1. Seaplane transfer fee is exorbitant w.r.t the distance away from Male. I had flew to a resort 2 times the distance away and I paid lower airfare. 2. Condition of the villa is not 5-star standard. 2.a. State of the villa is bad. Doors cannot be shut properly. Structure of villa is not solid or maybe is just the aircon ledge. The vibration sound at night is loud. I am not sure the rattling sound is from the roof or the ledge. 2.b. Living room setup is not conducive and not well maintained Cob webs are all over the wall hung decoration. Suggest you to change to a painting instead. Less maintenance issue. 2.c. Bathroom is not well maintain or design. The water outlet cannot accommodate to the shower output. I basically need to stop showering to wait for the water to discharge before continuing bathing, or I risk flooding the whole bathroom/villa. 3. Food selection is very limited. Breakfast has no variety at all. Lunch and dinner offers no flexibility or ala carte and selection and types of cuisine available is pathetic. 4. Room service is brilliantly stupid. I called for room service for lunch. The restaurant staff asked me to go to the restaurant to select the food myself and they will pack for me to bring to the room. The whole idea of calling Room Service is that I do not need to leave my room. This is really a joke. Not to mention, there's also no choice or a menu to order from. 5. Time restriction on meal times. Not everyone will get hungry at the same time and also, is creating inconvenience for your guests. At least offer a small selection of food to be available during other times. 6. Your dive centre equipment is not that well maintained and the fee is high compare to other resorts.

Average resort”
Reef was close to our villa. Relaxing place.
We stayed three nights here in an overwater villa. We arrived by seaplane($410US each) which took 20min from Male. Nice private airport lounge in male - complimentary drinks and food there. Very different story once on the island where they charge you for everything, in euros, plus an additional 18% tax. We had a bed and breakfast package so lunches and dinner were extra. Only one restaurant. Good but not a huge variety so you would be bored with the food after a few days. Room was spacious and comfortable, though we did have an ant problem in our room. We were also there on our honeymoon. They gave us a bottle of champagne and a cake (nice thought but didn't taste very good and the ants got to it anyway.) With so many other resorts in the Maldives, we'd probably stay somewhere else rather than come back here. Their overwater bungalow was cheaper than other resorts though, the water was great so it has those good points.

fake,boring,expensive,not worthy”
no best things
i stayed at this resort for three nights during christmas,well i have to say i was very disapointed,firstly before i arrived,because the stuff didnt tell me the departure time of sea plane very clear,i was waiting at the airport for nearly 8hours. then i arrived i complained to the manager he even dont want to apologize to me which is very bad. Secondly,they charge everything in the resort even water. This resort just have a fake,not original vibe. And the service sucks,like one time i was get wounded after snorkling,i waited around 2hours till the clinic opens,coz the doctor was snorkiling. It was a not happy experience.
