Want a luxury surf trip for that ultimate Maldives surf experience? Well, a stay at Niyama Maldives Surf Resort comes packed with 5* luxury AND a private left-hander!
The island’s private surf break – Vodi – offers up some screaming left-handers, with plenty of face for big hacks, and when the swell builds some serious tube time as well.
In fact, world champion Gabriel Medina has been known to head there for his off-season training!
As well as Vodi surf break, there are a host of other incredible waves to explore in the area too – including the likes of Mauroofs (aka Kasabu), Hocus Pocus, and Machines, which offer up a mix of lefts, rights, and something suitable for most levels of surfer too.

We love NIYAMA! Hands down the best place to stay in The Maldives for us and our family…
Paradise exists, sumptuous villa with swimming pool, perfect surf spot thanks Sam. The food is excellent, refined and varied. Nothing to say, it’s PERFECT
This place is heaven on earth … staff fantastic… can’t do enough for you from the moment we landed on the sea plane …
The paradise on earth! I went with 4 friends to celebrate my birthday. And was the best April 25th ever! Could wake up – 5:30 AM – receiving the day inside the lagoon in front of my overwater bungalow (best sunrise view)! Then had a incredible lunch at Subsix and finish my special day with an unforgettable sunrise in a boat in the middle of Indian Ocean . I won 2 cakes (during breakfast and the boat). And… when we came to bungalow I had and special decoration in my bed and a gift: champagne waiting for us! Wonderful. So caring . A trip to remember forever. People work at Nyama with a smile all the time. Special people. Lovely sunsets at Edge (special special special place). Bikes, SUP, snorkeling, blues, blues, blues… a paradise! I wanna back! Thanks Niyama !
