Two Islands. Infinity possibilities where pristine beaches, crystal-clear waters, and luxurious accommodations create an unforgettable tropical retreat.

Villas and pavilions sprawl across white-sand beach and over translucent water. And while the outline of quintessential Maldives remains – thatched roofs, cantilevered pools, panoramas of open horizon – bold splashes of colour and contemporary lines add a distinctively Niyama edge. Inside, the small touches that elevate luxury to extravagance include a Garden of Eden bathroom, 360° entertainment, Villa Host service, and most deliciously of all, a deli with ice-cream and a popcorn machine.

Beach Villa

The stage: crystal lagoon views, a sun-kissed deck, lush gardens. Sway in your Dhoni-shaped swing as the sun resurrects from the sea. Let toes sink into sand at this Maldives beach resort. Breathe.

Inside, red accents explode amidst airy white interiors. High-tech toys and gourmet treats create an indoor playground, and the rain showers, your private waterfalls. For more, ring your personal Thakuru – your whim is our command.

Beach Pool Villa

Step from your thatched villa onto white sands. Inhale. Jungle greens and salty seawaters mingle in the air, and the panorama of the lagoon wraps around you.

It’s peaceful privacy at this Maldives pool villa. Sway in your Dhoni-shaped swing and let your toes tease the water. Immerse yourself in a romantic, open-air rain shower. Linger over an al fresco dinner lit by the moon, or provide your own shine with the fibre optic lights of your private pool.

Water Pool Villa

Lounge on your private deck and gaze on it like a painting: Swipes of turquoise, azure, lapis brushed across a canvas of sky and sea. The billow of an ivory sail catching the breeze. Tiny diamonds of light on the pool’s surface.

Descend your stairs into the lagoon and enter the frame, adding bronze skin and rippling water to the picture. Behind you, the interior of the villa, with its crisp white backdrop and pops of aqua, forms its own work of modern art.

Deluxe Water Pool Villa

An over-water ocean haven with plenty of space to play. Wake to glimmers of dappled light on the lagoon and descend into its cool waters. Lounge on the deck. Plunge into your private pool by day and slip into your starlit Jacuzzi when night falls.

Indoors, a sleek sumptuousness awaits. Sink into a king bed. Melt in the oversized soaking tub. Or stand beneath the cool stream of the rain shower and let water and wind transport you.

Family Beach Pool Villa

An indoor-outdoor family oasis that opens onto powder-soft beach. Wake up to ocean views and the last of sunrise’s palette. Kids rollic in sunny day play on the beach. Grown-ups splash in your private pool, or drift into the horizon on a dhoni swing.

A private expanse for chilling and playing, the beach suite includes a living room by day that turns into king-sized comfort for two children. Unwind with al fresco bathing, with a soaking tub and the choice of indoor and outdoor rain showers cocooned by virgin palm fronds. In the evening, snuggle up with freshly popped popcorn and watch a movie in surround sound. The whole family can dig in to the Deli-In for licks of homemade ice cream, sweet treats and savoury snacks.

One Bedroom Water Pool Pavilion

Explore the expansive in your own overwater Maldivian playground. Make friends with the fish beneath your villa. Bronze on the deck. Float to infinity. If the heat pierces, seek refuge under the shady arc of a floating daybed, or retreat to a living room full of high-tech toys. When the stars come out to play, join them in the outdoor Jacuzzi, cocktail in hand.

One Bedroom Beach Pool Pavilion

Perch in your beach pavilion and explore a world of sensations. Toes enveloped by warm sand. The length of your body sliding into cool, pre-dawn waters. Being tickled by island breezes, kissed by the sun.

Indoors, there’s more to discover. Find your Deli-In, and let your tongue explore. The twang of pineapple. Salt from fresh popcorn, lingering on your lips like seawater. Velvety salmon, smoked and sophisticated, or the creamy milk chocolate of childhood. Your favourite melody surrounds you, high-tech speakers filling in every note. Before bed, slip under the rain shower, and let rivulets of water stream down your body like soft caresses.

Two Bedroom Ocean Pool Pavilion

Live the life of ultimate Maldivian leisure. Drift away embraced by a floating cocoon. Let your eyes skim the water. The cool blue of the infinity pool bleeds to the azure of the ocean. A soft ‘clink’ of champagne glasses strikes a high harmony in the symphony of ocean waves and tropical birds.

Inside, flow with the island breeze through spacious rooms —two bedrooms, sunken living room, dining room and cocktail bar—where cool hues offer respite from the sun’s rays. When night falls, get intimate. Flirt with the stars through your telescope, or envelop yourself in the pavilion’s sensual seclusion.

Two Bedroom Beach Pool Pavilion

Two sumptuous bedrooms. A jungle-fringed deck. Lush. Lavish. Secluded. The perfect backdrop on which to design your days. Curl up with a book and green garden breezes, or venture into the ocean to snorkel and splash. Light up the night with a playful pool party, where the water comes alive with fibre optic lights and underwater speakers, or go low-key with surf-and-turf by starlight.

Three Bedroom Beach Pool Pavilion

Get away and come together in a private paradise for the whole family. Kids rollick in sunny day play on your own beach. Grown-ups enjoy lounging and libations or a hard-earned massage in the villa’s private treatment room. Two private pools provide for both parental privacy and serious splashing.

In the evening, pile into the Dhoni-shaped swing to reconnect, or snuggle up with freshly popped popcorn and watch a movie in surround sound. The whole family can dig in to the Deli-In for licks of homemade ice cream, sweet treats and savoury snacks.

The Crescent

Huddled together offshore, a quintet of extraordinary villas forms a secluded overwater playground. Close to the action but far from the bustle, up to 14 adults and eight children can experience a holiday fantasyland amidst azure skies, turquoise sea. Here, the island comes alive for you. Grills sizzle at your private barbeque and movie under the stars. Boduberu drums beat.

Enjoy the expanse. A Two Bedroom Ocean Pool Pavilion, beats at The Crescent’s heart, flanked by two One Bedroom Water Pool Pavilions and two Deluxe Water Pool Villas, all five with private pools. Two dedicated private butlers, a private chef and a housekeeper keep your island oasis running smoothly.
