February’s – ‘The Love Issue’ – Download Now

Made up of twin islands on the Dhaalu Atoll in the Maldives, Niyama Maldives is a unique luxury resort that feels as private as it does pristine.

Privacy is the operative word here, whether you opt to spend time on the aptly named “Play” and “Chill” islands. On Play, you’ll find a host of activities including water sports as well as land-based. On Chill, it’s all about relaxation. Unwinding in the incredible spa should be a go-to during your stay complete with steam, sauna and a garden shower that feels back to nature in all the best ways.

Happily, you’ll be able to traverse between the two islands whether you take a buggy or opt to ride barefoot on the bicycle that becomes your personal transport for the duration of your stay complete with a hand-carved nametag.

The Highlight

Dinner in the treetops at Nest is something not to be missed. The menu extends from the freshest sashimi to grilled lobster and an incredible Pad Thai you’ll be hard-pressed to believe hasn’t come straight from Bangkok.

A snorkel with the turtles or scuba dive are both also something to tick off the bucket list. Here you’ll find unspoiled nature in all its glory.

The Travel

Niyama Private Islands Maldives sits an exhilarating 40-minute seaplane journey south of Malé.

The Timing

The best time to visit the Maldives is between November and April. If you’re looking for a Valentine’s Day getaway, February is ideal with the least amount of rainfall yearly. If it does rain, you’ll be well placed for a round of backgammon in your bathrobe.
