We’re chilling out around the world and our journey takes us back to the Maldives. This exotic archipelago in the Indian Ocean, just a stone’s throw from the equator, is a true natural wonder.

Travel to the Maldives has truly boomed in the past decade to the point that its resorts now set the standard for long-haul luxury beach holidays and are regular winners of international travel awards. For a blast of barefoot glamour go to Per Aquum Niyama resort on Olhuveli Island, in Dhaalu atoll. Take a 45-minute spectacular seaplane flight from Male, the Maldivian capital, to reach this hip hideaway in the less developed south part of the Maldives.

Why go? Per Aquum Niyama Maldives in Dhaalu Atoll ticks all the boxes: tropical white sandy beaches, a calm turquoise sea as warm as a bath, cloudless skies, lush vegetation and coolly contemporary overwater bungalows & beach villas. This private paradise in the Maldives invites you into a stress-free world, where you’ll find water-lapping, sun-bleached perfection. Apart from the expected bells & whistles, Niyama Maldives offers wow factor amenities including a marine biology lab, kicking kids club and a hot underwater nightclub where you can dance with sharks, turtles and rays. Furthermore, the numerous dining options – from The Deli, its jungle restaurant to its fine-dining temple – are outstanding and nothing is too much trouble at Niyama hotel where staff glow with enthusiasm. Sounds too good to be true? Well, it isn’t.

This younger, bigger and funkier sister of luxury Maldives resort Per Aquum Huvafen Fushi in North Male Atoll has two personalities. Opened in 2012, Niyama Maldives offers two connected islands for different moods and tastes: Chill & Play. Here, hip honeymooners, hardcore food lovers, scuba-diving beach bums, very happy families and tropical fish coexist harmoniously. So whether you want to glam with the fam or seeking a honeymoon heaven, Per Aquum Niyama resort is a perfect choice. Offering a kick-your-shoes-off vibe, this queen of cool in the Maldives ensures there’s no excuse for boredom.

Niyama Maldives hotel is a collection of beach villas and water pavilions designed by a Thai design company. Pick your own laidback luxury villa from across the resort’s twin islands of Chill & Play. Style-wise not our favorite Maldivian hotel, this luxurious slice of heaven in Dhaalu Atoll offers super spacious villas for fuss-free family fun and deluxe cocoons for roving romantics. The bad news you can´t stay in all the villas at once. The good news is that you can return as often as you want. Explore the indulgences from private infinity pools to Jacuzzis to high-tech toys, chill daybeds, open-air bathrooms and in-villa spa treatment rooms. Villa number 153, a large beach villa on Play Island near Blu Restaurant, was our exclusive oasis of exotic plants and tranquil living for a couple of days. We especially liked the cool bikes you get to cycle around the island (we found it also a great exercise), shading decks for snoozing and the good-looking open-air bathroom including heavenly Ren bath products as well as an ultra-relaxing massage shower. There was an extra bed in the living room, ideal for kids. And the view? That’s the best bit, each villa looks out across the sparkling emerald blue waters of the Maldives that stretches to the horizon. Authentic & rustic from the outside and modern & funky from the inside, Niyama’s villas have huge TV’s, comfy beds, Nespresso machines, well-stocked fridges including free Häagen-Dazs ice cream and everyday you’ll find some small sweet delights in your room. When you’re feeling hot hot hot, take a dip in your plunge pool, relax to the max on your terrace and have your own super friendly Thakuru (Maldivian butler) fetch your fancies.

We’re big fans of the hotel restaurants at Per Aquum Niyama Maldives. It really offers something for everyone. Don’t miss Edge, the exclusive overwater restaurant where the dining is truly delectable. Edge, quite literally, is offshore and only accessible by boat. Here, you can choose to dine inside or on the private jetty offering panoramic views. Featuring a menu of modern cuisine and cooking styles, the chic Edge restaurant, led by a Mauritian born chef, is without a doubt one of the best hotel restaurants we’ve ever been. Try the Edge Signature Menu paired with wines or order the Maldivian wahoo sashimi as a starter and Wagya Beef Tenderloin with kipfler potatoes, parmesan and truffle oil as a main course. And don’t skip dessert. Spend balmy tropical evenings here and enjoy the delicious culinary delights at Edge restaurant. You’ll love it! Afterwards, you can check out the world’s first underwater club Subsix and order a must-drink before you die wine like a La Tache Grand Cru or Petrus from France. To excite modern-day hotel guests, you need far more than honest food. Apart from culinary standards, today’s clientele has higher expectations when it comes to the overall restaurant concept and design. Niyama’s Tribal is another amazing restaurant for a real Africa meets South America adventure. It’s concept of modern campfire dining under the stars is really original, the style & setting amidst tropical gardens is one-of-a-kind and the food is perfect. Still not enough? Try The Deli for salads, smoothies & sandwiches or go to the newly-built bamboo beauty called Nest for Asian specialties in the heart of the jungle. Other options: Epicure, Dune or Blu Restaurant for barefoot lunches, laidback dinners and beach barbeques. But what’s for breakfast? An extensive power breakfast is served at Epicure by the pool. The downers? It feels a little bit like an all-inclusive hotel breakfast as they don’t have a breakfast menu and it doesn’t look really appealing.

It’s perfectly acceptable to do nothing more than spend the day snorkeling, sun-bathing and swimming (each island has its own perfect-for-posing pool). Energetic guests can go to Float for lots of water adventures, attend fitness classes – from TRX training to kickboxing -, rediscover your inner self with a yoga lesson and much more. Per Aquum Niyama’s children’s club is fantastic for kids from 12 months to 12 years, while the games room and sports simulators keep the older ones busy. A luxury holiday in the Maldives should include some serious pampering as well. For de-stressing or practicing the fine art of relaxation, make sure you book the signature top-to-toe Melt treatment (a full body experience using detoxifying, self-heating seaweed mud on the back followed by a full body aromatic massage with essential oils) at the Lime Spa.
