Low-key luxury on a far-flung island in the Maldives, including full board, a snorkelling tour, signature massage and an over-water villa option

Be whisked away on a luxurious Maldives escape at Nika Island Resort and Spa. This TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence awardee is hidden away on a secluded private island and offers a slew of amenities, including a floating spa, multi-cuisine restaurant, two bars, a cafe and elegantly appointed rooms and villas. It's set on Kudafolhudhoo island, once a settlement famous for building dhonis (the traditional Maldivian boat). Today, the same master carpentry skills are utilised to build the traditional thatched-roof structures, adding a sense of authenticity to the resort.

When you’re not taking advantage of the serene spa facilities or sitting down to an indulgent Italian spread at the main restaurant, gear up at the resort’s PADI dive centre and explore the island’s surrounding reefs that are teeming with life. Alternatively, sunset fishing, sailing, windsurfing and excursions to nearby fishing settlements can also be arranged.

Good to know

A Green Tax of USD 6 per person, per night is not included and is payable directly to the resort. This helps fund environmental projects in the Maldives.

Nika Island Resort and Spa can be reached by seaplane from Velana International (not included). For information on transfer costs, please see the offer details.

Highlights

Set on Kudafolhudhoo island in the pristine Ari Atoll, where dhonis were once built, Nika Island Resort and Spa is a lo-fi destination with master craftsmanship at its heart. The same skills were used to build the resort’s traditional thatched roofs, which blend beautifully with the tropical foliage and white-sand shores. The shallow surrounding waters are teeming with life, and a little further out, you’ll find some of the best dive spots in the atoll - easily explored with the aid of the resort’s PADI certified instructors. Sunset fishing, sailing, windsurfing and excursions to local villages can also be arranged.
