This is an independent review written by LuxuryBARED. It does not necessarily reflect the opinion of Elegant Resorts.



PER AQUUM produced one of the finest and most exquisite luxurious Maldivian resorts when it splashed onto the scene in 2004 with Huvafen Fushi. Niyama represents its second project in the country and it’s quite a statement property. By regional standards, and given the eyewatering rates of other Maldivian hotels, Niyama is incredibly good value for money and there is a great sense of fun throughout the resort. The relaxed visitor, the half-term family, and active honeymooners will equally enjoy the atmosphere, the plethora of facilities on offer and the lively staff. The style is contemporary and colourful, with clean lines and a funky edge. Niyama made the all too common mistake of opening too early, with unfinished villas and teething problems, but most have since been ironed out. Although technically the resort is still incomplete, because of its size and layout, it’s possible to visit and never notice any ongoing work.
