Fabulous 8.8 From 37 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Overall we were quite satisfied with Nika Resort we rated it 4 out of 5. Most staff were friendly and the food was of high standard. PROS - Value for money, smaller more intimate resort with not too many guests, very accommodating as I have various dietary restrictions. Rooms in good condition. Also stunning views and amazing reefs. CONS - expensive food and tours. We had one tour booked to rashdoo reef and it was extremely choppy. Instead of cancelling/rescheduling the tour they still went ahead. On the tour we were trying to swim with strong currents and we had 3 poor swimmers (out of 5) in the tour which was hard. Because it was so windy and choppy the water was very murky and there were not that many fish. The most annoying thing was the staff made it out to be amazing without admitting the less than ideal conditions. Just another note the resort will charge you whenever they can (which is understandable) so just ask the staff if you are unsure. Examples are water with meals, tea and coffee from the bar. On our departure we also had to pay for our last buffet meal so if in doubt just ask. The staff members that are assets are the wait staff, Victor and the chefs they were extremely accommodating. However some of the tour staff and reception area staff were sometimes abrupt. Highly recommend this resort to anyone as we had an amazing experience. The villas are beautiful and the island is very scenic. We would go back if we had the opportunity. Well done Nika Resort

Incredible, idyllic resort. The reef surrounding the island is stunning and has an abundance of wildlife - black tip reef sharks, turtles, eagle rays, sting rays and thousands of fish are just some of the things we saw. The private beach was amazing and for many of the days of our stay we had two resident black tip reef sharks swimming in our bay! Amazing! The staff are very friendly and helpful, the food is delightful and plentiful and the trips to other reefs are expensive but totally worth it! The accommodation is beautifully built and decorated too. We will be back one day for sure!

Exceptional 10.0
The island and resort was beautiful, we have 3 young children and the family beach Villa was the perfect set up. It's often difficult to travel with children, but we couldn't have asked for a better place. We could be swimming at our private beach while the baby napped right inside as the baby monitor reached. The food was delicious and the staff very friendly and accommodating. Also, there was great snorkeling along the house reef. The meals are scheduled as follows: 9am breakfast, 2pm lunch, 9pm dinner. I wish I had known ahead of time as our kids are usually going to bed about 730, so we had some schedule adjusting to do. Also, the island time is 2 hours ahead of the official Maldivian time as an FYI. there are general bugs and ants around, which is to be expected on a tropical island, so don't be surprised when you see them, and they will come inside if you leave food out!

Nice hotel, stunning views with impeccable service
Was an amazing stay with picturesque views, only one word for them is WOW, Impeccable service, personal attention to every guest & attention to detailing sets them apart from any other hotel, whether it was chef customizing the indian dishes for us or whether it is free diving trainer who makes it easy for non-swimmers to go under water or whether hotel manager and reception staff receive & see off personally. Bruna manages the hotel as personal visitors visits their home not in a hotel. Keep up the good work guys!!
