  • Lime Spa – the Maldives’ first 24-hour spa, dedicated to reviving your body and indulging your senses with exclusive treatments for men, women and children
  • Subsix – enjoy a champagne breakfast, sub-aquatic lunch, or celebrate your marriage with a stunning ceremony in this amazing underwater space

  • A full watersports programme including Catamarans, windsurfing, kitesurfing, parasailing and kayaks
  • Expeditions and immersive experiences with the in-house marine biologist

Niyama Private Islands features a collection of 134 studios, suites and pavilions which dot both islands and extend out over the lagoon. From modern Beach Studios right through to the unrivalled luxury of ‘The Crescent’ (an exclusive playground of 5 ultra-chic villas with private pools, staff and its own programme of entertainment), you are guaranteed to feel at one with nature whilst enjoying all of the comforts you would come to expect from the PER AQUUM group of resorts.


With a range of options available including jacuzzis, infinity pools, spa treatment areas and even private cocktail bars – your only difficulty will be choosing which one to stay in!



If you’re taking friends and family away for the holiday of a lifetime, then we simply have to recommend The Crescent. Who wouldn’t enjoy having their own private chef, dedicated Thakurus (butlers), private barbecues, sunset dhoni cruises and island drumming experience?


If you’re holidaying as a couple or just with your very nearest and dearest, then you simply must book some time to really explore the ocean in the company of the resort’s resident marine biologist. Adopt a coral, embark on a turtle quest and snorkel the house reef, all whilst honing your underwater photography skills. You’ll leave with a head full of memories and holiday photos that your friends will demand to see.
