Most of the surf spots in the Maldives remain an undiscovered secret, or those in the know keep it so, but at NIYAMA Private Islands Maldives the secret is right in front of you at the only luxury resort sporting surf-able waves that break directly onto the island.

Off the beaten track with uncrowded waves and high quality breaks, NIYAMA Private Islands introduces a series of surf options and tailored services that invite professional and novice surfers alike to revel in their own version of luxury by enjoying adrenaline-charged activities right on their doorstep. Here the waves are relatively mellow and playful, but challenging at times and suitable for intermediate to advanced surfers, with some spots perfect for beginner coaching. Surfers can expect a consistent set of around five average surf-able waves rolling out every five minutes, and no crowds.

Aptly known as Nature's Playground, NIYAMA Private Islands offers adjoining twin islands, Chill and Play. Just off the edge of Play Island's Surf Corner is Vodi surf point – a classic, powerful left hand ride that breaks onto the shore. Off to the West and just five minutes away by speedboat is Kasabu surf point at Kudahuvadhoo Corner – a superb right hander with barrelling sections. Head East for ten minutes to Hocus Pocus at Maeenboodhoo Corner for another barrelling right hander.

134 studios, suites, and pavilions dot both islands or extend out over the azure lagoon. Right on the beach at Surf Corner, surfers can chill out in customised Surf Beach Studios, Surf Beach Studios with a pool, or a Surf Family Beach Suite with a pool, ranging from 135 to 255 square metres. The studios and suites are fitted with a surfboard rack and stocked with surf amenities and necessities, including bicycles with a surfboard rack and dedicated television channels displaying up-to-the-minute surf reports and a live feed of the nearby Vodi surf point. Each room is equipped with a king bed and Deli-In with full-size refrigerator overflowing with gourmet treats, as well as Thakuru (butler) service.

As the sun sets over the ocean swells, head off to the Surf Shack at Vodi surf point with the dudes to recall the day's kick outs, bottom turns and barrels. Here surfers can drink classic Rum cocktails from the Caribbean Islands and Jamaican comfort food to the laidback island rhythms of reggae music.

FLOAT, NIYAMA Private Islands' water sports operator, offers an array of tailormade surf programmes and services developed in association with LUEX.com, one of the world's leading luxury surf tour operators, to suit every surfer. From beginner coaching courses to various surf pass options that offer on-demand boat transfers to surf points located away from the resort, the professional Surf Dude is on hand to coax first timers or use video analysis to help intermediate surfers get to the next level.

Always daring to be different, NIYAMA Private Islands offers the ultimate luxury surf experience – a private seaplane at surfers' disposal to discover and surf secret spots. The seaplane allows surfers to jump in directly behind the waves anywhere on the ocean, and swim back to the plane for the scenic short journey back to the resort.
