A hidden side of Maldives you must visit

This resort is every traveler’s dream tropical destination – a private island that lets you experience Maldives in its most pristine form

Imagine yourself drifting to the sound of the waves, feeling the warm air, and the smell of the ocean lulling you to sleep. Tucked away in a private island in the Maldives, Niyama is a  tropical resort with 48 villas that are so stunning; you will feel like you never want to leave. Here are things you should know about this extraordinary resort:

You can escape in an overwater villa.

You’re in for a different kind of staycation, not in the confines of an air-conditioned room – but on top of the water. The Crescent, a quintet of villas huddled together offshore, is located on a private island that’s connected to resort’s main island. Its location is far enough for you to get that much coveted peace and quiet, yet close to the resort where you can dine and indulge in spa services. The expanse of the sea will make you feel like you’re living in another world – where a dip in the sea is just a few seconds away.

Stay in a water studio.

Niyama has private villas you can stay in with your family or friends. The distinctly designed “water studios” are inspired by the colors of the sea – with pillows that have coral prints, sky blue interiors and sandy colored furniture. The space has a minimalist design that allows light and air to come in, with the crystal clear pool sitting outside inviting you to take a dip. There are no constricting windows and wall enclosures, as everything is divided by clear, open glass reminiscent of an aquarium. At night, the villa will give you an amazing view. You can lie down and admire the stars enveloping the sky.

Dine underwater.

Subsix will redefine the way you enjoy the bounty of the sea. Six meters below the waterline, with a view of butterfly fish and incredible water flora, go deep and enjoy international and local cuisine. Everything is carefully designed, the Italian abstract chandeliers are inspired by shining corals as it illuminates the whole room. The bar is reminiscent of a clam, with soft anemone chairs beneath the soft waves of capiz shells draped from the ceiling.
