Hot Hotels: Niyama Maldives and its Underwater Night Club

Niyama MaldivesThere’s a hot new destination for trendsetters in the Maldives. What sets Niyama apart from the bevy of glam resorts in the atolls? Not only does it have the overwater bungalows and a 24-hour gym and spa, but it’s also got an underwater nightclub, the first like it in the world. Here’s how Outside Magazine describes Subsix: “DJs spin world music and you overlook swimming creatures through glass walls while dancing.” And for the hard-partying, late-night crowd, the spa is open 24/7 for rejuvenating treatments.

One of the Niyama’s coolest features is the restaurant Edge, an overwater restaurant that’s accessible only by boat. Recreational activities include snorkeling tours, private sailing excursions on a traditional wooden dhoni, and PADI diving courses. The resort itself is spread over two islands in the southwestern atoll of Dhaalu, a 40-minute flight from Male. For more information, visit www.niyama.com
