Paradise in Paradise
Our trip was planned as a "vacation of a lifetime," and it was everything expected plus more. The island is gorgeous with pristine Indian Ocean waters abound, and world-class service. The villas were amazing, spacious, and extraordinarily clean. The staff at Niyam was absolutely wonderful and you could feel the sense of service in their delivery. What was really nice was the opportunity to lay back and relax, or be very active with the many activities available on the island. We would come back in a heart beat and highly recommend this resort to anyone, families with children, adults, singles, anyone attempting to escape the craziness in our world.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The Maldives, in general, is absolutely spectacular. What makes Niyama special is the staff. The level of hospitality is really unbelievable. MANY people really stood out, but our Thakaru (Mahey), the Spa staff (Tara and May), the ENTIRE staff at Epicure (Kudy, Asso, and everyone else) really stood out as being the best of the best. The only criticism I have is that we had one service issue at one of the restaurants. It was minor and was corrected easily. The really impressive thing is how eager the management is to receive constructive feedback. They even have a cocktail reception once a week for that specific purpose. The food was outstanding (make sure to book Sub 6 in ADVANCE. Nest too. The facilities were GREAT. I initially didn't care about having a pool in an over-water villa, but I was WRONG. . .we used it multiple times per day. On the excursions. . .we saw dolphins within 30 seconds of leaving the lagoon and we saw 4 turtles on the turtle quest. When we go back, we will do far more excursions. We are even considering getting SCUBA certified
