Sublime experience, top level island and resort
The island is fantastic, the diving center team extraordinary, food simply excellent, rooms incredibly confortable. We have bee also lucky with the weather, and really didn't want to leave the resort anymore: you feel among friends, in a pieceful environment , with all you need and even more.

Great hotel BUT rude guest relations manager!
First of all, I want to say that all the staff that works there are amazingly kind and helpful. I'm giving a bad rating only for one person working there who doesn't fit for a 5 star resort. I'm talking about an old woman called Lucy, who is in charge of the checkins and excursions. She shouted after asking about the snorkelling trip that is included in the all inclusive package, it seems she was only interested in selling paid tours. After all, we didn't go to any excursion because we didn't felt welcome. She made us feel uncomfortable several times during our stay and finally we just opted to avoid her. You can find her in the bar next to the reception drinking sparkling wine, but if you want to have a peaceful holiday, I strongly recommend you also to avoid her. I am sad to see someone so unfriendly in a position that many people would dream of working on. Especially sad after seeing how kind and friendly the Maldivian people are. I am 100% sure that a Maldivian would do their job much better ensuring the stunning 5 star service of Maldives. Besides that, the resort is truly beautiful and we had a great time. I would still recommend this hotel to everybody. It's an old resort but the rooms are very well maintained, spacious and comfortable. We split our stay between water villa and beach villa, and we were very happy with that because both of them has its own charm. Overall, great integration of the luxury experience and nature.

AMAZING Nika Resort!!!
It was amazing! The hospitality is the best even comparing with 5-star hotels in developed countries. Lucy was the Guest manager and she was extremely welcoming. She is approachable and available virtually anytime (as if she works 24 hr a day). We went for full board meals - I have to say their food were way my expectations (Buffet style breakfast, Lunch & Dinner with 3 course meal). If I were to go again, I would opt for half board as the portion are all quite large. Note that drinks are not included but they're all reasonable price (i.e: US$3 for bottle water, US$4-5 for a beer - add 22% tax for everything that you purchased in Maldives). Our waiter, Hassan, was very attentive too. The island itself is extremely private - hardly see any other guests outside of meal times. We stayed in Family villa with private beach - just swim 1-2 mins away and bingo beautiful corals with colourful fish. Been to Thailand, phillipines, hawaii - honestly nothing can be compared to this. I'll definitely come back again to this resort. Just heard from colleague that comparable place would be Tahiti but it's more convenient reach Maldives.

Nika Island, an Italian look of the Maldives
My family stayed at Nika for three nights. The island is small, easily a five-minute-walk around the inner island. Beach villas have private beaches. These are very clean (~30 meters in width); sand is mostly soft. Each villa will get its collection of tropical trees, in which exotic creatures find their home. Ocean is great. A variety of triggerfishes and surgeonfishes keep snorkeling colorful. A shy baby reef shark calls the public beach its residence. Food-wise, Nika provides an A La Carte meal everyday (at lunch or at dinner), and features Italian dishes especially. Pineapples, melons, and papayas are fresh local products. Coconut is not on the list. One thing to note is that all drinks served during lunch and dinner are NOT included in the full board package. A lovely sight is the pet parrot named Ruby, who shows up occasionally at meals. Nika has a diving center which arranges open water dives and gives PADI courses. Special thanks to Fabio. The Italian Divemaster is friendly and helpful with guests, and is a reliable guide for diving in the area. Excursions, sadly, are mostly disappointments for my family. We went fishing but got none; manta seeking and no rays; yet when we hopped on for the sunset aperitif cruise, we saw flying fishes and dolphins. In general, Nika was a good choice for us, who are first time visitors to the Maldives. Maybe we would give other islands their shots before deciding whether Nika is the one we would like to frequent.
