Niyama manages to be family-friendly without alienating the most grown-up of grown-ups. It has sophisticated dining and excellent nightlife that features DJ sets and cool lounge bars; but children are kept entertained at the children's club and by countless opportunities for adventure.





Niyama opened its doors in March 2012 offering the world's first underwater nightclub, a floating restaurant and an open-all-hours spa (the perfect companion for the club). Today it is perennially popular, known as one of the Maldives' best high-end family resorts. You can keep daytimes leisurely on the beach, by the pool or at your villa, but there is always something going on at Active centre. Evenings are similarly fun: there are no fewer than eight unique drinking and dining options, including a slick rooftop lounge bar, dining pods in the treetops, and a fine dining restaurant marooned in the crystal-clear lagoon. 



Niyama has 86 suites located either on the beach or on stilts over the water. There are romantic studios as well as one and two bedroom pavilions suitable for families; and many have a luxurious private pool where you can while away the day without seeing another soul. The décor is crisp and fresh in true Maldivian style, with big views of the beach, sea and sky. If you are travelling as a larger party, The Crescent provides overwater accommodation for up to 14 adults and eight children in a self-contained group of four villas separated from the white sands by a private walkway. There, two private butlers, a chef and a house-keeper will be on hand to take care of every need and wish.


Up-market fun for both adults and children. 


The children's club at Niyama caters for children between the ages of one and 12 years. The ratio of staff to children is very much in the children's favour, and they will benefit from a stimulating, fun programme of activities that remains flexible dependent on the children within the group. For activities, little ones will be split into four age groups, and there is also a room for siestas.

The great thing at Niyama is that the dining, activities and accommodation are all designed to be family friendly; and adults can party the night away safe in the knowledge that children are cared for by highly-qualified staff. 


The choice of beautiful settings at Niyama means you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to taking your vows or celebrating your recent marriage on the honeymoon of your dreams. Take your vows on the white sands, over the water or amongst the trees; sail into the sunset with a glass of champagne, or enjoy a memorable lamp-lit dinner in a secret location known only to your personal waiter and chefs.

Insider Viewpoint

In a nutshell: children are well catered for and parents can let their hair down. For somewhere so slick and stylish, it is refreshingly family-friendly. Between Active, Float, the children's clubs and the restaurants, fun is possible day and night; and the all-day spa and gym mean total flexibility for any individual lifestyle.
