Niyama Resort By Per Aquum – Maldives


01_PNIY_Aerial_and_Island_CrescentFeaturing 40 overwater villas that range from huge to enormous, the Niyama Resort by Per Aquum defines luxury in everyway possible along with an added natural edge. There are 47 beach studios and pavilions as well, and all are also large and very luxurious. Each overwater villa has its own private pool and many have Jacuzzis as well.

There are 8 restaurants and bars as well, and the usual assortment of scuba diving and sailing opportunities, but there is also a business center. Considering the size of the villas, the private pools, and the commitment to luxury from this brand, the Niyama rates feel quite modest and like a good value in the top-end Maldives market.


The Niyama Resort By Per Aquum is located about 220 kilometers southwest of Malé International Airport in the Maldives.
