If you want the year’s most romantic holiday to be truly exceptional, we don’t think you can do much better than heading over to Niyama.

For those who don’t know, the Dhaalu Atoll property is spread over two islands dubbed ‘Play’ and ‘Chill’. Play is all about activity, naturally; exciting adventures, and thrilling water excursions await you here. Meanwhile, on Chill, the pace of life slows to a gentle stroll, gifting you the chance to admire iconic Maldivian moments, the hypnotic swaying of palms, the crashing of the surf on a spotless beach. And you could treat yourself to a blissful hour or two at the Drift Spa.

But what’s really lush is that you can have champagne dinner with your significant other at the Subsix restaurant, several metres below the beautiful Indian Ocean. Conversely, you can delight in a fabulous dinner above the trees at Nest, Niyama’s treetop dining outlet.

Lots more await lucky lovebirds at this special resort. Visit niyama.com for more details.
