A tranquil stay in the Maldives, either in the gardens, on the beach or directly over the water, with a massage and more

Nika Island Resort and Spa, winner of a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, is hidden away on a secluded private island and offers a slew of amenities, including a floating spa, an exquisite restaurant, two bars, a café and some seriously impressive rooms and villas. The island itself, Kudafolhudhoo, has a long history of building dhonis (traditional Maldivian boats), and now the same master carpentry skills are used to build the resort’s traditional thatched-roof structures, adding a real sense of authenticity.

There's plenty to keep you busy at this spectacular destination. The luxe spa facilities are hard to ignore, offering a tempting array of treatments, and the exquisite restaurant serves up Italian and international cuisines. You can also gear up at the resort’s PADI dive center and explore the island’s surrounding reefs, which are absolutely teeming with life. And that's just the beginning – the resort's happy to arrange sunset fishing, sailing, windsurfing and excursions to nearby fishing settlements.

Good to know

Please note that a green tax of $6 per person, per night is not included and is payable directly to the resort. This helps fund environmental projects in the Maldives.

Guests can contact the hotel directly after booking to arrange airport transfers (see "How do I get there?").
