Make a statement at Niyama Maldives, Valentine’s Day proposal in the middle of Indian Ocean
Propose six metres underwater in an aquatic wonderland with tropical shoals and swaying corals your witness. Celebrate with a dinner for two 500 metres out over the Indian Ocean at Edge or on a deserted sandbank. Indulge in romance with a private 3D screening of your favourite movie under the stars, complete with Champagne, canapés and popcorn.
Niyama Private Islands Maldives is the ultimate destination for once-in-a-lifetime moments. Spread over two islands connected by a single boardwalk, find private moments in perfected settings and make a bold declaration of love this Valentine’s Day.
Your chapter of sweeping romance begins with a seaplane flight over topaz waters to the southwestern atoll of Dhaalu. Choose from beach studios to run directly over powdered sands and into the ocean, or luxury overwater pavilions set out over the lagoon.
Lush Island spread over four kilometres, open waters, and quiet stretches of beach are yours to explore, and offer a distinct twist on the Maldives experience. Dine in the treetops at Nest, toast your love with champagne at underwater Subsix, or opt for a private chef dinner on a moonlit beach, your path lit by flame torches and your toes buried in the sand and lapped by waves.
Begin your journey together as you mean to continue, indulging in one-of-a-kind experiences and wild adventures. Set sail for the sunset on a traditional dhoni. Swim with manta rays and turtles. Surrender to spa bliss with couples’ journeys at Drift Spa.
Celebrate your engagement with time out for two, your very own island love nest surrounded by horizons of blue. Niyama’s special promotion when you stay three nights or more sets the mood with champagne, a couple’s massage overwater, a sunset cruise and a romantic picnic on a deserted sandbank. Capture your love with a professional photoshoot, complete with make-up and wardrobe.
