The brand new, edgier addition to the Per AQUUM collection, NIYAMA, provides the perfect balance between contemporary design and traditional Maldivian elegance, creating a luxurious resort for style-conscious travellers.

It features 86 Studios and Pavilions that elevate guest accommodation to new standards. Beach Studios feature striking outdoor bathrooms, while Deluxe Beach Studios each boast a private fibre-optic-lit pool. The Pavilions provide the added luxury of personal butler service, plunge pool and exclusive beach access, and the Water Studios treat guests to inspiring views of the Indian Ocean from their private pool.

Culinary exhibitionism takes guests on a gastronomic journey from breakfast at Epicure to dinner at TRIBAL, a modern campsite with cuisine from Africa and South America complete with live cooking sights and sounds. For a truly unforgettable dining experience, venture 500 metres offshore where Edge, NIYAMA’s signature restaurant, appears to float on the surface of the Indian Ocean and is accessible only by boat.

The full NIYAMA experience is not complete without an afternoon at the LIME Spa, which pampers guests day and night with bespoke treatments and indigenous rituals. Not to be forgotten, children have their pick of adventures, with an abundance of activities suitable for the entire family, while more lively adults can dance the night away at Subsix, the world’s first underwater music club showcasing current and emerging global artists.
