Gourmet Traveller (Australia) - - News -

The dis­tance be­tween bed and a surf break is an easy pad­dle at Niyama Pri­vate Is­lands, which claims to be the only re­sort in the Mal­dives with sur­fa­ble waves that break di­rectly onto its shore. Niyama’s 134 suites are dot­ted across twin islets in the Dhaalu atoll, with a left-hand ride break­ing di­rectly onto one. Surf Beach Suites have board racks and live video streams of nearby breaks, and guests can take lessons with res­i­dent Aus­tralian surf coach Zach Zocher. True lux­ury, how­ever, is ac­cess to a pri­vate sea­plane from which surfers can spot and ride the break of their dreams. niyama.com
