|Nika Island Resort,Maldives
Nika Island Resort, built on Kudafolhudhoo island, located just 74kms from Male' International airport boasts private beaches for each bungalow. 26 spacious beach bungalows and suite stand proud on the beachfront, just few meters from the sea, giving them direct access to the private beach.
The recently built 10 water apartments with a floor space of 110sqm are located in the lagoon on the northeast of the island. Water apartments are designed and built in 3 nucleuses: A sitting room and a bedroom with sea view, and a bath room and a toilet. Connecting the 3 nucleuses is a hall with wardrobe and an extra bed incase of a third person.
The island is named after the majestic banyan tree called “Nika” in dhivehi. The giant tree which shoots down its roots into the Nika soil to support its growing weight, is home to many types of birds and fruit bats. This tree is believed to be about 350 years old.
As with all islands in the Maldives , Nika possesses all the glory of tropical islands. The white sandy beaches and the seemingly endless crystal clear lagoon surrounding the island offers an experience that will not be matched elsewhere.
However, what marks it out against other resorts is that our clientele receive the most private experience possible and is wrapped in a feeling of being truly away from “it” all. As soon as you step on to the island you will feel the last of your worries disappear. The sight that awaits you when you hop onto the island is guaranteed to take your breathe away.
Nika Island is sold on full board basis, with beverages not included. Italian, International and Maldivian cuisine is served buffet-style at lunch and “à la carte” at dinner and a selection of over 60 wines is offered. Friendly staff is willing to cater for your every wish. Maldivian buffet and barbecues are served twice a week. Home-made delicious ice-creams are also offered with meals.
The restaurant also boasts a deck where one can dine with candles, the twinkling stars and the waves rolling on to the beach.
Most of the food items and ingredients are imported directly from Italy.
The coffee shop situated on the beach is where one can relax, have a delicious cocktail and listen to some lovely music or even better to the sound of waves and the wind rustling through the palm leaves.
Besides the serene atmosphere, the coffee shop also offers light snacks, ice cream and alcoholic beverages. The coffee shop is the ideal place to watch the sun go down after a lazy day basking in its brilliance. The golden hue spread across the sky and the passionate red reflected in the clouds is a sight not to be missed. This is truly the ultimate setting for a couple who loves romance.
A small pond with seawater circulation has been created for the purpose of raising baby turtles as part of our effort to see their numbers increase in the Maldivian waters.
Baby turtles are usually found from fishing villages. Sometimes they are even hatched on Nika itself. The chances of their survival are much better under our protection than out in the open sea. When the turtles are ready to go they are set free usually during the new year celebration.
Thanks to a government law passed few years ago, prohibiting the fishing of turtles, the sighting of turtles by tourists while snorkeling is on the rise.
One of the most stunning beauties of this tiny paradise is perhaps its spectacular garden. A garden with lavish green, colorful and abundant flowers make Nika the perfect hideaway for romance and relaxation. With the countless number of coconut trees and other tropical plants, Nika is cooler by several degrees on sunny days than other islands where trees have been sacrificed for construction. The constant care and effort of our gardeners keep the vegetation of Nika as a true attraction.
An important part of the gardening is of course the cultivation of fruits such as banana and papaya, salads such as mustard (ruccola) and basil. Ruccola and basil are of course used to create authentic Nika dishes.
