Experience the Luxurious Central Atolls and a private wave!

Situated in the idyllic Central Atolls, Niyama Private Islands is the first 5-Star luxury resort in the Maldives to lay claim to its own private wave. Experience unparalleled quality of service whilst having access to your own private high-quality left-hander with no crowds!

Niyama is incredible for couples looking to escape and with their on-site kid’s club, is perfect for families looking to relax and surf!

The Resort

The resort is located just a short 40-minute flight from the international airport in Malé in the unspoilt Central Atolls. Niyama Private Islands is situated over 2 islands, Play and Chill, connected by a small bridge, allowing you to have the space to roam and explore.

The jewel in the crown of NIyama Private Islands is the private, onsite wave, Vodi. This well-shaped left-hand reef break is located on the southern tip of the resort allowing you to jump in and surf whenever you feel! No waiting around for boats, just surfing on your schedule.

Waves at Niyama Private Islands

You’re spoilt for choice with the wave options at Niyama. Sitting on the southern tip of the resort is Vodi. Vodi breaks left over a well covered even reef giving fun, playful rides when smaller and fast, technical rides when the swell gets bigger! This can be surfed at anytime and is a great fun wave.

In the local area, there are a few more great waves, Kasabu and Hocus Pocus that can be reached with the onsite surf transfers. Kasabu is a playful right-hander, perfect for perfecting your turns. When the conditions are right, Hocus Pocus is a barreling right-hander that offers perfectly shaped barrels for the lucky few that get to surf it!

With the help of the expert surf team onsite, you may also get to surf a few other secrets in the area in the right conditions!

Why We Love Niyama Private Islands

The onsite wave, Vodi, is perfect. Being able to paddle straight to the break on your own schedule is priceless.

The quality of all of the villa categories is outstanding. The attention to detail is second to none.

Niyama boasts one of the best Kid’s Clubs in the Maldives, giving parents time to rest, surf and relax on their trip!

I run surf coaching trips to perfect, uncrowded waves and I relied on the AWAVE team to deliver for my clients a month long boat trip to the Maldives. We had great waves on an absolutley 5* boat called North Seven which I REALLY recommend you enquire about.

I was dubious at first as a few boats were changed, in for repair but James assured me correctly this was a usual thing and they would endevour to find us the very best replacement (which they did). North Seven was so new we were the third guests but the crew were super experienced and could not have given us a better service. Captain Usmaan, the Chef great food, Hasan and Azim our surf boat operators could not have worked any harder and always had a smile even after the 50th request to speed us to the line up or spend four hours cruising looking or waves.

AWAVE team were always on hand to answer any fears and smooth out any worries. The payment system using Revolut was super easy.

We did have a few hiccups with the local airlines which was resolved and partly our fault (as for a month trip we took alot of surfboards and in some cases were over weight).

Take the fear out of booking and especially group bookings by using the AWAVE team. Justin West Coaching recommended.

These guys are the BEST! Massively knowledgeable, fun and absolute shredders. I approached them asking for a UK winter getaway somewhere in the Indian Ocean and they suggested the perfect place, awesome setup with the beach a short stroll from my accommodation with 3 sick waves breaking over reefs to chose from. Real life doesn’t get much better than this. I also popped my barrel cherry in a big way on this trip so it was a truely memorable one. James also somehow wangled a boat charter to some super remote islands where we scored epic surf and landed some massive fish. James’ broken Indonesian language skills will get you places. Thanks again guys you rock.

James is a super knowledgeable surfer with a great ability to match any trip requirements to the right locations. He has arranged several trips for me and my friends in France, Morocco and more recently Indonesia. Awave have a great knowledge of all the surf spots and will go the extra mile to make sure your trip is all set up. With limited time to do this myself their service was invaluable.

Giuliana has been amazing to work with!! She was always available and answered all my questions. Thank you for all your help! We can't wait for our trip!

Fantastic service from start to finish from James and his team. After having several ‘self organised’ trips to Asia end with only a handful of good surf days I decided this time to use Awave in hope of maximising my valuable holiday time. James custom built a trip for me and my friends tailored for our abilities and requirements. There were no days wasted waiting for transfers as he organised it all from the airport to the beach. We scored pretty much every day whilst also having a surf trip that had that ‘off the beaten track’ feel we wanted. To round it off there was also a secret boat trip in the end where we surfed an awesome spot just us...Unforgettable. Will be using again.

Fantastic service and support from Giulia during our trip. During a self organised trip to Maldives, we ended up in a sketchy situation: the hotel was far from the described plus the owner 'forgot' to mention that the whole island was in lockdown for a covid emergency. I quickly realized that I would need support and the best in class. That's when I decided to use Awave! Giulia answered reactively and custom built several solutions for me and my girlfriend, based on what feasible, our budget and surfing preferences!! No other words needed. Thanks Giulia, we'll be in touch again!

My friends and I recently went on a trip to the Maldives. We booked a week on the Hudhuranfushi resort which was amazing! The staff was very welcoming, flawless facilities and tasty food. One day our surf guide Ryan caught a fish and made some sashimi on the spot! I think that was pretty thoughtful! Awave agency really made sure all our needs where met as we where a big group of friends. A very personal approach and clear communication. Epic surf, great service, memories of a lifetime! I highly recommend traveling with Awave!

I had just arrived in Bali when the whole of Indonesia went into lockdown again. Despite travel restrictions such as mandatory vaccination and PCR tests, flight cancellations and even the fast ferries to the Mentawis being cancelled, Giulia tried everything to get me there. It was a hell of a trip to get there but totally worth it.

I scored pristine and empty Mentawis. The resort was affordable yet very luxurious given the remoteness. And with their great surf guide and their boat, I scored amazing empty waves!
