Friday is sending one couple to the incredible Niyama Private Islands Maldives resort for the most romantic getaway on earth.

Surfing, spa time, or simply sunning yourself – you can do as much or as little as you want with this amazing mini-moon at the unique Niyama Private Islands in the beautiful, romantic Maldives.


Friday has partnered with Niyama to give one lucky couple a four-night stay – the ultimate in loved-up getaways. This ultra-private resort has the best of both worlds, with twin islands Play and Chill, meaning you can be as active or as relaxed as you like. After you swoop in by seaplane, you’ll be escorted to your own beach studio; everywhere you look, there are stunning sea and island views. If you can drag yourself from your own sundeck and outdoor shower, the gourmet treats in the fridge and the services of your private butler, the resort has everything you’d expect from a paradise island – and more.


You and your partner can find true relaxation with complimentary spa treatments at Drift Spa, from where you can emerge smooth as silk thanks to the house coconut oil polish. Cycle the jungle-clad pathways of the islands, sip a cool drink by the poolside or peacefully kayak the gentle waters. Finish the day with drinks and DJ sounds at Fahrenheit, perched over the infinity pool as the dips into the sea.


Not a beach bum? Niyama defies the expectation that the Maldives are only for chilling. The property is one of very few in the Indian ocean island nation that has surfable waves inviting both the experienced and thw novice to ride the waves. Zip across the water in one of Niyama’s seacraft on an excursion, included in your stay, to see turtles or dolphins. Or sign up for big-game fishing and paragliding – and, of course, diving.  


The food is just as exciting – how about an Asian-influenced dinner in the treetops at Nest, or a bubbly breakfast six metres underwater at Subsix – a restaurant with windows onto the sea life of the lagoon. 

Hail a speedboat for dinner at Edge, a fine-dining restaurant half a kilometer out to sea. 

The resort is perfect not only for your honeymoon, but also for intimate weddings, sealing your love on a beach, a private island or a dhoni – a traditional Maldivian sailboat.
