DINE & IMBIBE
As a Per AQUUM resort, NIYAMA was sure to introduce iconic experiences to the Maldives and the dining options do not disappoint.
Tribal brings a new unique concept to the Maldives. Designed like a modern day campsite, guests sit in specially designed pods surrounded by live cooking stations with dishes influenced by tribes from South America, Africa and Asia. Cooking methods include hot rock grills, asados and open flames.
Another innovative concept for NIYAMA is Per AQUUM’s Deli-In with an a la carte menu of gourmet deli items such as ice creams, cheeses, olives, cold cuts and wines all pre-stocked in each Studio and Pavilion. The in-room popcorn makers with complimentary corn kernels add that additional element of fun.
Fahrenheit is perfect for refreshing drinks throughout the day transforming into one of island hot spots at night with spectacular ocean and sunset views. Sip frozen cocktails and Champagne while nibbling on gourmet canapés as live musicians and DJs fill the air with head bobbing, toe tapping beats until the early hours of the morning.
