Maharani is a 2005 music album by Nicolette "Nikki" Palikat, the Kadazan-Dusun singer from Malaysian Idol, released on the Artistes United Records label. Ning Baizura is the executive producer. The album was released on two CDs, with the second disc containing remixes.

The album features a diverse range of instrumentation, from violins on "Imaginasi" to beat-drums and techno, and also features a rap from the Akademi Fantasia contestant Zahid. "Sunudai Oku" is sung in Nikki's native tongue, Bahasa Dusun. "Pinta" is the first single.

The music video for "Caramu," track 2 and likely one of her most popular hits, has recently fallen subject to considerable criticism due to blatant use of concepts and choreography from various works of international South Korean pop star, BoA.

In late 2006, the album were re-released with new tracks, new remixes as well a bonus music video VCD containing her music videos.
