With 48 new suites and pavilions, bringing the total number of keys up to 134, Play offers fresh, groundbreaking concepts including Nest, the treetop dining experience, BLU, the laid-back beachfront restaurant and new facilities for every generation, including a children’s club. Play is connected to NIYAMA’s original island, ‘Chill’, by a bridge with the two just a few metres apart.
Miami meets the Mediterranean at BLU on Play, 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 family and the poolside ice cream parlour is packed with homemade treats including smoothies, sherbert and crêpes. A ‘Sunshine Thakuru’ takes care of guests’ every whim and poolside cabanas offer a private haven close to all the action.
Opening soon on Play, Nest is a one-of-a-kind dining concept for the Maldives featuring naturally modern design nestled amongst the Banyan trees in the heart of the jungle. With a diverse menu, Nest offers a range of Asian specialties from Thai to Teppanyaki with fresh, seasonal produce from the Chef’s own island garden. The innovative multi-level treehouse design provides spectacular locations from private pods suspended six metres above the ground to culinary theatrics in domed pavilions burrowed amongst the trees, all linked by wooden walkways adding a sense of adventure to the jungle experience.
Explorers, the new children’s club run by an internationally renowned operator, is located close to the resort’s family friendly accommodation on Play. Operated by fully qualified childcare professionals and local team members with an exceptionally high ratio of carers to children, the club caters to children from 12 months to 12 years. NIYAMA will be the only resort in the Maldives offering a club for children under three years of age with special facilities for younger children including a sleeping room for daytime siestas.
New accommodation options at NIYAMA include the One-Bedroom Beach Pool Suites which offer the best of indoor/outdoor living, perfect for families, groups of friends or couples seeking more space. The Beach Pool Suites provide total privacy but also the convenience of direct beach access and ocean views from bed as well as a ‘family-sized’ plunge pool.
NIYAMA opened in 2012 and is a 45 minute seaplane flight from Male. The new facilities on Play complement the venues on Chill, including LIME Spa with six treatment rooms facing the lagoon and two nestled in lush jungle. Dining options on Chill include Tribal, the innovative African dining experience, fine dining at Edge, which is only accessible by boat, and Subsix, the underwater playground.
