Niyama Private Islands made a huge wave at the Luxury Travel Advisor’s Most Instagrammable Hotel in the World 2019 competition, ruling in the Asia, Indian Ocean and Pacific Islands category. The resort beat Four Seasons Bali in a feverish knockout round to take top honours. The property bagged 41,000 votes in the final. 

Luxury Travel Advisor presents the latest news and trends in the luxe travel sector and is run by a team of independent journalists. 

“This recognition reconfirms Niyama’s popularity with the travel elite, and I would like to thank the thousands of voters who chose the resort”, said Hafidh Busaidy, general manager of Niyama Private Islands Maldives. 

The Dhaalu Atoll property is spread over two islands dubbed Play and Chill, offering a level of luxury that’s hard to match even in a super-luxe destination such as the Maldives.  

Play is for the more adventurous, there’s treetop feasting, kayaking and myriad others to delight the active traveller. Meanwhile, life slows down on Chill, letting travellers reconnect with themselves at the Drift Spa and take in the serene Maldive-island surrounds. 

So, congratulations Niyama, you’re a star.
