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.

July is dedicated to “Nika’tree”The Ficus Benghalensis is a large tree that goes by the name Banyan tree (locally known as Nika), found in parts of the Maldives. The seeds of the ever green Banyan tree germinate on the branches of other trees, from where they send aerial roots to the ground. The tree produces figs (small red fruits) which are popular with the local birds and bats. The leaves of this giant tree which can grow over a height of 20 meters and can reach a diameter of some 200 meters are broad, oval and glossy. @best_of_island_life

🐚 Venus Comb 🐚 Murex Pecten 🐚 is one of the most fascinating seashells; its spines look so fragile yet it`s a carnivorous predatory sea snail that feeds on other mollusks.
Legends say that Venus and mermaids use the Murex Pecten as a comb.

Solutions to plastic pollution.
Nika’s green path leads to a plastic-free future: on land we have almost completely eliminated single-use plastic, under the sea we try to collect as much as possible thanks to our team of divers and our marine biologist. Thanks to @zorzo_terzi for amazing video

🏡🐠🐳 From the lively and colorful coral reef, 8 Water Villas and 2 Family Water Villas emerge, called with the names of the most famous Venetian painters, consisting of 3 nuclei located on three different levels: the first, at the surface of the water from which to dive; the second with a large wooden terrace and space to place deckchairs; the third between the roofs, a solarium from which to admire the infinite while enjoying the pleasant sea breeze.

Luxury’ at Nika is being able to walk barefoot, in contact with the sand in all areas of the island. ‘Luxury’ at Nika is the freedom of not having to worry about the dress code or the ‘make-up’, exactly like at home. ‘Luxury’ at Nika is the silence of the private beach, the reduction of night lighting to the essential to admire the Milky Way and not disturb the turtles that lay their eggs on our beaches. ‘Luxury’ at Nika is experiencing Maldivian tradition and culture, sleeping on beds made by Maldivian carpenters, without giving up the comfort of the services of an international hotel. ‘Luxury’ at Nika is letting time flow slowly, without worrying, it is enjoying a Nika-time, a time zone 2 hours ahead of the capital Malé, which gives more sunlight every day. Like on another planet. ‘Luxury’ at Nika is savouring the uniqueness of an island that refers to and recalls Venice, foundations in water, equally dreamlike, with echoes of the Orient and spices. The creative and at the same time exploratory lunge of the Nika. #forty40 #unika #privatebeach ...
