Welcome to the Maldives, on the Dhaalu atoll, where the sumptuous 5-star Niyama Private Islands Hotel is located. Surrounded by turquoise waters and endless sandy beaches, the island is a paradise on earth.

To reach the atoll it takes 45 minutes by seaplane from the international airport of Velana (airport located in Malé, capital of the Maldives).


Niyama’s infrastructure is built in the island’s typical style. With their wooden structures and pointed palm-tree roofs, the pavilions fit perfectly into the natural beauty of the atoll.

The Niyama Private Islands has grasped the importance of combining calm and well-being with the family. Thus, the atoll is divided into two interconnected islands: Chill Island and Play Island. The first focuses on relaxation and calm, ideal for escaping couples; the second houses a Kids Club and is dedicated to activities for children and families. Enough to make everyone happy by combining relaxation and fun.

The hotel comprises

  • 134 studios, suites and lodges
  • 6 restaurants
  • 2 bars
  • 1 spa
  • 1 outdoor pool
  • Several tennis courts
  • 1 fitness room
  • 1 billiards room
  • 1 library
  • 1 shop
  • 1 cinema



The studios, suites and pavilions, with exceptional sizes ranging from 135 sqm (1453 sqft) to 770 sqm (8288 sqft), are ideal for families. Each room can accommodate at least 2 adults, 2 children and 1 infant.

Families will also be pleased to see that the majority of the studios, suites and pavilions are equipped with a private infinity pool. Different formulas are available.

The two-bedroom beachfront pavilion with private pool offers families the ultimate luxury and comfort experience. With a capacity of up to 4 adults and 4 children in its 700 sqm (7534 sqft), this unique pavilion allows you to be with your family while preserving your privacy. You will also benefit from exceptional services such as a private spa area, within the pavilion, with treatments on request at home. The pavilion also includes a hot tub.


The Niyama offers a remarkable selection of culinary experiences. It is possible to dine over the water with a breathtaking view of the ocean at the Edge restaurant (only accessible by boat) or enjoy delicious dishes cooked in the open fire under the stars in the Tribal restaurant huts.

For an even more unique experience or for a special occasion, immerse yourself in the heart of the Subsix, a restaurant nestled 6 meters below the surface of the water! Its large bay windows allow you to observe the seabed while enjoying your meal.

The hotel has 3 other classical restaurants but the equally tasty cuisine: Epicure, Blu, and The Deli.

As an aperitif, you can enjoy refreshing cocktails while hanging in the air at the rooftop Fahrenheit bar, or opt for cocktails, mocktails and snacks from the beach bar, the Dune.

Good news for small gourmets – in Niyama, most of the meals are free for children!
