With twin islands Play and Chill, Niyama offers you the true luxury of choice, with everything expected from an island resort and so much more. Chill is true to its name. You can discover new depths of relaxation at The Drift Spa, or take in a movie under the stars at the outdoor cinema. Just off the coast, Edge prepares elegant entrées from freshly caught seafood, while Subsix will delight with its underwater panoramas.
Play provides delightful diversions for those looking for more active pursuits. On the water, you can kayak around the islands or discover why Niyama is among the hottest surfing destinations. Bicyclists can explore the island at their own pace, perhaps lured by the aromas from the chef’s spice gardens.
