Michelin-starred chef Heiko Nieder to return to Niyama Private Islands Maldives
Niyama Private Islands Maldives has announced the return of two Michelin-starred chef Heiko Nieder, who will be making his fourth guest appearance at the resort’s signature Edge restaurant.
For one night only, on July 20, Nader will serve up an exclusive five-course tasting menu paired with wine. Nader’s innovative flavour combinations are modern and light, and features dishes including lobster with melon and green curry as well as tangerine and agave with aji amarillo.
Hailing from Germany, Nader is the founding force behind The Restaurant at the Dolder Grand on Lake Zurich, where he was awarded two Michelin stars. The restaurant was also awarded 18 Gault Millau points in 2012, when Nader was named ‘Most Improved Chef of the Year’.
Niyama offers its guests haute cuisine in settings across two islands. Asian avant-garde in a treetop setting, Champagne breakfasts six meters below the ocean’s surface, tribal cuisine in the jungle and modern fine dining located half a kilometre from shore at signature restaurant, Edge.
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.
