A PIECE OF MALDIVIAN HISTORY

Nika Island is a piece of Maldivian history, one of the first islands in Ari Atoll to become a unique destination in the world. Nika Island is the heavenly island of our collective imagination. A platform where the typical concepts of Maldivian tradition and beauty blend with Italian culture. Nika is the island where nothing has changed. A place where you come to experience the Maldives of times past. “A thing of beauty is a joy forever,” wrote the English poet Keats – the beauty of Nika transcends any description. This island is suspended in time, immune to the dynamics of massive tourism that are redefining the Maldives today. An ambitious alchemical experiment, unrepeatable and totally successful, that has written an important chapter in the history of tourism in the Maldives.

LOCATION

The Resort is located on Kudafolhudhoo Island, in Ari Atoll, a 25-minute seaplane ride from Malé. The arrival terminal is connected to the island, ensuring immediate access to the resort.

DEFINE LUXURY

“Luxury” at Nika means walking barefoot all over the island: forget marbles and crystals of large international chains. At Nika, we prefer to walk in contact with the sand. “Luxury” at Nika is the freedom not to worry about dress code or your makeup, just like at home. “Luxury” at Nika is the silence of a private beach. “Luxury” the Nika is to reduce light pollution at night to the bare minimum, to admire the Milky Way and not to disturb turtles that lay their eggs on our beaches.
“Luxury” at Nika is to experience Maldivian tradition and culture, without giving up the comforts of high-class hotel services.
“Luxury” at Nika is to let time flow slowly, worry-free.

Gallery

Nika has always preserved nature and culture in the Maldives: before converting into an iconic resort, the island was used by the community of the nearby islanders for growing fruit trees and for repairing Dhonis, the typical boats used by Maldivian fishermen.

In the Maldives the value of an island is reported on the basis of the number of coconut palms present on it. In fact, the most diverse materials are obtained from these plants, such as foodstuffs and copra from coconuts, wood to build boats, furniture and even buildings, while mats are made with the leaves. In Nika we have 536 palms.

Vitamin Coconut, anyone?

NIKA ISLAND will be the first kind island in the Maldives 🏝️ It will be proclaimed on Sunday 2 April in a ceremony under the centuries-old Ficus Bengalensis tree (Nika in divehi, the local language)
The International Kindness Movement will soon land in one of the most beautiful places in the world, where the concepts of tradition and beauty typical of the Maldives merge with environmental, cultural and social concerns.
‘A thing of beauty is a joy forever,` wrote the English poet Keats. An island not subject to the ravages of time, nor to the dynamics of massive tourism that are redefining the Maldives. A land that embraces the value of kindness by translating it into concrete social projects that benefit the ecosystem itself: an ambitious alchemical experiment with simply unrepeatable contours.
International Kindness Movement is a network that to date has reached 300,000 participants and spreads kindness, restoring the highest human, spiritual, cultural, environmental and social values to the territory in which it operates, through the promotion of a healthy and conscious lifestyle. #internationalkindnessmovement #nika #nikaislandresort @giovannabellazzi @daniellumera @felicia_cigorescu @margheritamaiani @mamencomunicacion @taniacefis
