Joining the long list of celebrities and champion surfers who had a great time riding the barrels at this luxury resort is pro surfer Carlos Bahia, the 3 times Brazilian Champion. The place is known as the nature’s playground and they don’t call it this for no reason. It’s the uncrowded waves. High quality breaks. It’s the only luxury resort in the Maldives with its own wave breaking right onto the shore at Vodi Point.
Where Niyama Private Island is located, you’ll find a variety of surf spots in and around the Dhaalu Atoll that can be explored during your stay. The famous Vodi Surf Point at Niyama Corner is reachable by simply walking to the point and paddling out – no boat transfer needed. For the best experience, we recommend you request the resort to get you a beach villa as close to the spot as possible.
During the last quarter of 2020, the record-holder for the most National Scholastic Surfing Association championships won by a male competitor and the surfer set to represent the United States at the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games after qualifying through the 2019 WSL Championship Tour, Kolohe Andino came to a romantic trip to the resort, which turned out to be a great surfing experience as well!
The surf guides at the resort keep an eye on the conditions and will recommend you the time and place to surf to get the most out of your holiday. If Vodi is breaking well, it’s a simple paddle out. If conditions are better for another spot – you’ll be informed.
