Niyama Maldives trends at Luxury Travel Advisor’s most Instagrammable hotel competition

At Niyama Private Islands Maldives, each stunning moment is framed to perfection, whether it be surfing inside the curve of a wave, seabobbing through the ocean’s depths or dining while witnessing the breathtaking panoramic views of the Indian Ocean.

This was recognised in Luxury Travel Advisor’s Most Instagrammable Hotel in the World 2019 competition, in which Niyama emerged as champion in the Asia, Indian Ocean and Pacific Islands category.

With four knockout rounds in the global competition already under its belt, 41,000 votes were cast for Niyama in the regional finals, with the luxury resort beating Four Seasons Bali to take the top spot.

Luxury Travel Advisor is the insider’s choice for all things superlative, run by independent journalists for travel agents in the luxury segment. With its finger on the pulse, readers from across the world cast their votes weekly for their favourite designer destinations.

“This recognition reconfirms Niyama’s popularity with the travel elite, and I would like to thank the thousands of voters who chose the resort,” Hafidh Busaidy, General Manager of Niyama Private Islands Maldives, was quoted in a statement, as saying.

“Our two islands – Play and Chill – are unique in that they contain a plethora of picturesque settings, from the billowing sails of Edge set out half a kilometre to sea, to Subsix six metres below the waves, to the stunning standalone Crescent villas with uninterrupted ocean views.”

Niyama offers more than a luxury retreat in the Maldives. Going beyond conventional concepts of lavish accommodation, sumptuous cuisines, and lavish services, Niyama 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.

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, enjoy a fine dining experience at Edge accessible only by speedboat, while Subsix invites you the world’s finest underwater seafood restaurant and night club.

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 amongst the hottest surfing destinations. Bicyclists can explore the island at their own pace, perhaps lured by the aromas from the chef’s spice gardens.
