A group of 6 friends, we have just spent the last couple of weeks at Niyama, just as the Coronavirus pandemic took hold globally. Despite the immense pressure, with flight restrictions and cancellations, extremely worrying news stories from around the world, and our anxieties for our children, families and friends at home, the whole island team at Niyama ensured that our holiday remained perfect. The quality of service was impeccable, and it was obvious that the staff took great pride in the service they provided, and also in the resort itself. The personal butler service is the best we have experienced, very easy to make arrangements, always on hand, yet never intrusive. Thank you so much Renjian. The food was always wonderful, and again the staff made every effort to ensure that we enjoyed every meal. The dining experience at Edge and Tribal restaurants is exceptional, really top class, hard to believe how good, considering the fact we were on a small island in the middle of Indian ocean. We would like to pass on our best wishes to the General Manager, Haf, his management team, and the whole resort team......thank you all so much for your help and support and we hope that the current disruption is short lived. We are thinking of you xx

As expected the place is a paradise. You feel so free in a world that becomed a prison, full of rules, making us live as robots... Here we can just enjoy nature, go around on the bikes, walk in restaurants barefoot, shirtless. Well, the way it should be :) To make it perfec we had Sham, our Takaru, that made everything happened. Just want to go back now ahah. Thanks for all the experience.
