Glamorous Tropical Retreat: Per Aquum Niyama Maldives
Per Aquum Niyama is located in the Dhaalu Atoll, a 40-minute seaplane flight from capital Malé. A deserted-island backdrop and vast views of the Indian Ocean set the stage for Per Aquum Niyama resort hotel's city-sleek retreat in the Maldives. This resort refines tropical island luxury, hitting the high notes with sophisticated dining, alluring beach bars (including under-sea DJ nights and dancing at submerged venue Subsix) and an emphasis on urban-inspired style.
Edge Lounge - Exclusive overwater dining with a stunning floating restaurant and chill-out lounge, only accessible by boat. Open-air canopied dining on a private jetty reveals panoramic views, while indoor dining with floor to ceiling windows creates a sense of the expanse of the outdoors. Dine on the daily catch, with a menu of modern cuisine and cooking styles which capture local flavours. Signature cocktails add an air of sophistication to evening dining in a chic haven of indulgence and originality.
Boasting a 24 hour spa and the world's first underwater nightclub, the luxurious NIYAMA Maldives Per AQUUM Resort sits on the private island of Olhuveli in Maldives.
86 Studios and Pavilions are on hand to provide guests with a wide variety of “slumber options.” Choose between Beach Studios, Beach Studios With Pools, Beach Pavilions, Water Studios, Deluxe Water Studios, and One- and Two Bedroom Water Pavilions.
Subsix - Immerse yourself in the surreal beauty of this underwater playground. Aqua adventures set against the colorful landscape of the Indian Ocean, 500 meters out in the ocean and six meters below the waterline. From private Champagne breakfasts, intimate sub-aquatic lunches, wedding blessings to wine tastings, themed evenings and club nights.
Tribal - An innovative campfire dining experience where tribal charm meets contemporary luxury with a futuristic, beach side feel. Outdoor grills conjure up a mesmerizing mix of tastes from South America, Africa and Asia with a menu that combines local inspiration and global flair. Live action adds a creative flavor with hot rock grills, Argentinian Asado woks and flaming open fires. An exotic a fresco dining stage is set for tribal gatherings with a dash of adventure and a pinch of fun.
Miami meets the Mediterranean at BLU, which offers relaxed family-style beachfront dining from day through to night. The large infinity pool with its dedicated children's swimming area offers fun for the whole tribe and the poolside ice cream parlour is packed with homemade treats including smoothies, sherbert and crepes. A 'Sunshine Thakuru' takes care of guests' every whim and poolside cabanas offer a private haven close to all the action.
Water babes will be in their element here. The Float center is the go-to place for PADI dives (including tailor-made courses for juniors), deep-sea fishing jaunts and a slew of sports in and on the water, including para-sailing, water-skiing, jet-skiing, snorkeling, kayaking and windsurfing. Catamaran sailing, windsurfing and kite-surfing lessons are available, if you want to brush up on your skills or are keen to try something new.
Subsix sits below sea level, 500 meters offshore. Guests are whisked by speedboat, then reach the underwater den (the first of its kind) down a three-story staircase. Mirrored floors and abstract chandeliers add a surreal sheen to the entrance way, and when inside guests are seated in sea anemone inspired chairs under thousands of ceiling-strung capiz shells. The weekly Glow Party and DJ nights are well attended, as are wine-tastings and marine biologist talks, but the wow-worthy views of parrot fish, moray eels and other exotic marine life are far more eye-catching than any dance-floor goings-on.
Fahrenheit - Rooftop bar with cool interior and outdoor deck with transparent walls which give a feeling of being suspended in nature. Bask in spectacular ocean and sunset views, taking in the surroundings while enjoying a specialty cocktail, as the mood changes with the day's light. Chilled out beats and live music come out to play as night falls.
Dune - chic beach hub bar for stylish poolside lounging with creative deli-style beach snacks, fresh pizzas, gourmet burgers and sandwiches and desserts. Enjoy refreshing drinks with fruity daiquiris or thirst quenching 'mocktails' during the day and a wide choice of special 'sundowner' cocktails as you watch the sun set over a paradise location.
