Nika Island, Maldives: A Pioneering Path towards Kindness and Longevity

Nika Island Resort continues its story of innovation, sustainability, and social commitment. After being proclaimed the world’s first “Kind Island” on April 2, 2023, the paradise island is now gearing up to become a benchmark for longevity and well-being.

In full respect of its roots and the surrounding environment, Nika is set to host its inaugural “Longevity Week” during the Easter week of 2024. A unique opportunity for guests to immerse themselves in a transformative experience, surrounded by the timeless beauty of the island and guided by a prominent expert toward a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle.

At the heart of this new initiative is Professor Ennio Tasciotti – an internationally renowned biotechnologist and Founder & Director of the Longevity Center at IRCCS San Raffaele in Rome – who will lead guests through the latest discoveries in science and medicine, along with simple daily practices that can help ensure a life full of vitality and well-being.

Just as kindness has become the pulsating heart of Nika Island, Longevity Week aims to reflect on the importance of a balanced and sustainable lifestyle, in harmony with nature and oneself. Through talks, group discussions, workshops, and daily activities ranging from nutrition to physical exercise, from socialization to meditation, resort guests will have the opportunity to reconnect with themselves and their inner well-being, following the principles defined through the study of Blue Zones.

Thanks to its unique location in the heart of the Indian Ocean and its rich history of tradition and beauty, Nika Island stands out as a place where kindness and longevity meet in a harmonious embrace of nature, culture, and community.

Nika Island Resort is excited to continue its journey towards a better world, one kind step at a time.
