Niyama Private Islands offers more than a luxury retreat in the Maldives. Going beyond conventional concepts of lavish accommodation, sumptuous cuisines, and lavish services, Niyama Private Islands presents every visitor with myriad opportunities to create their own exceptional island experience.
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.
Luxe excitement for the littlest VIPs. Set in the heart of the Isle of Play, Explorers Kids Club caters to the imaginations of all ages. This quintessentially Maldives kids club immerses children in the eye-opening nature and cultural beauty of the islands – from Dhivehi lullabies to dolphin scouting.
With age related activities and facilities for children from 12 months to 12 years, the Explorer Kids club gives parents the opportunity to enjoy a relaxed holiday, whilst their children are in the care of experts, enjoying everything that both islands have to offer. Purpose built with a circus theme, the children’s club is a vibrant and exciting place and promises fun and adventure for every child.
Explorers is divided into four age groups, each with an excellent carer to child ratio. The childcare team is made up of fully qualified child carers recruited and trained by Scott Dunn, supported by a trained local team, with each one having a passion for working with children. Divided into two areas for the different age groups, the whole club is full of everything an active imagination could need.
Niyama’s nurturing Globetrotter and Adventurer programmes for younger guests, introduces the children to the flora and fauna of the islands and include activities from coconut painting to sand prints, from hermit crab races to water fun, and from themed treasure hunts to cookie making. There’s much fun to be had both inside and out, with toys, games and books in the club to keep children entertained during the heat of the day, and a playground with a sandpit, water play area, inset trampoline and see saws. Snacks are provided, and there’s a sleep room for babies and toddlers in need of a siesta. We also provide complimentary nappies (including swim nappies) during club hours.
For the Voyagers and Pioneers, a trip to Niyama is a real Swallows and Amazons adventure. They have their own separate area and games room in the children’s club, and they’re able to explore their surrounds with Niyama’s Explorers team who take them out to the reef to snorkel, or find dolphins or discover one of the neighboring islands. With activities including cookie making, volleyball, stand up paddle boarding and designing t shirts, your children will be endlessly entertained. The club has a stage for those who love to perform; a small wall for budding climbers, and there’s even a spot of education with visits from Niyama’s resident marine biologist.
Niyama has recently launched Food Play – tailored cooking classes for small groups of six to eight – wherein guests are invited to learn the secrets of our native chef whizzes. Maldivian tuna curry. Thai tom yum. Grilled halloumi with pomegranate. Ostrich bobotie. Four distinctive cuisine classes are on offer: Maldivian as experienced at Epicure, with fresh seafood locally caught and cooked with vibrant colours and spices; Asian as served at Nest, with five-flavored Thai dishes being a focus; the freshness of the Mediterranean from the Executive Chef of Blu; and the rarest of African delicacies roasted over the open fires of Tribal.
Niyama’s Food Play classes are ideal for couples, families with kids or groups of friends, offering an ideal day of adventurous learning, passion, and appreciation for new flavors.
Niyama has also won the Family Traveler Award 2016 for the Best Kids Club and been voted as the world’s best family hotels 2015 by Conde Nast Traveler.
