Lovingly reimagined by iconic interior designer, Patricia Urquiola, Velaa’s two-story Nika Residence reaches new heights of luxury in the Maldives.

Accommodating up to 10 guests, Nika offers the ultimate designer beach villa retreat. Vertical wall panels have been crafted with materials such as raffia and natural wood, and earthy textiles facilitate a natural indoor and outdoor flow. The design creates a warm, yet stylish atmosphere, arranged with hand-crafted, minimalistic furniture pieces; a sprawling 5-meter dining table cut from two pieces of rare black marble slab; and positioned beneath a stunning, beaded Craaft chandelier.
