DUBAI 4 November 2017: Niyama Private Islands Maldives has once again been recognised for its uniqueness, exclusivity and chilled luxury vibe, winning accolades at this year’s Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards.
Taking fourth place in the ‘Best Resorts in the World’ category, and second place in the ‘Top Resorts in the Indian Ocean’ category, Niyama joins sister resort Naladhu Private Island Maldives – which was named ‘Best Resort in the World’ – in topping the 2017 list. The Readers’ Choice Awards epitomises authenticity, personalization and the unexpected in the travel industry, and this year saw over 300,000 readers casting a vote – a new record in the 30 years of the awards.
“Niyama offers a distinct twist on the Maldives, with two islands – Chill and Play. With so much to experience, whether surfing the waves that break at Play, partying six metres below the surface off Chill at Subsix, or rejuvenating with A-list consultants from around the globe, guests love the pizzazz that Niyama brings to each moment”, says General Manager Hafidh Al Busaidy.
“To be recognised as the fourth best resort in the world and second in the Indian Ocean category is a great achievement, and I would like to thank the voters for honouring us, and my team for their dedication, passion and enthusiasm – the foundations of delivering unparalleled guest experiences consistently”, he adds. “The fact that we have moved up three places on the list this year is a testament to the resort and the team always evolving, always bringing something new”.
Niyama brings novelty to one of the most stunning settings in the world. Two islands to play on or chill. Dining at sea, underwater, in the treetops or deep in the jungle. Submitting to spa journeys overwater or in a garden. Adrenaline-fuelled adventures are interspersed with quiet moments of perfection on long stretches of powdery beach. Privacy and exclusivity reign.
