Ayada located on a very beautiful island. My sisters and I had an awesome holiday. The beauty of the island is magnificent. Every morning I woke up early to enjoy the sunrise. It was an amazing view beyond the waves beyond the winds. We stayed at the ocean villa (room-529). From the villa, you can see numerous colorful sea creatures.... More

My wife and I headed to Maldives for a year-end vacation. We stayed 7 days at Ayada Maldives Resort and couldn't possibly imagine a better time. Incredible service, the most peaceful surroundings, and exceptional food. Jo Yun at the Dive Kingdom was one of the best dive guides we've ever had! Thank you Ayada!

The service was outstanding, the people are so polite and courteous. The chefs were very personal, we really enjoyed ourselves. It was worth every dime spent. Ayada Maldives is the way to go. The bungalow's are fabulous! It was everything we imagined and more!

This is a wonderful resort to enjoy holiday with family and loved ones. We stayed at a beach pool villa. You can go for snorkeling direct from room and it was great. Compared to other resorts they have plenty of restaurants with different specialities. Thai food was great.

We had a delightful 10 day stay at Ayada. We managed to plan an early arrival at Male and from that point the Ayada representatives managed a very smooth internal flight check in and speedboat transfer to the resort. We stayed in a sunset beach suite on the western side of the island. The room and private pool are very... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Voted the 'Leading Water Villa Resort' in the world at the 2014 World Travel Awards, Ayada Maldives is a luxury private island resort offering a truly luxurious retreat with a genuine Maldivian style. Set in the relatively unexplored Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll in the south of the country - just a few kilometres from the equator - the island offers 112 spacious villas and suites, all with private pools, butler and thoughtful five-star detailing. Traditional thatched-roof water-villas stand on stilts over the resort's peaceful lagoon, while beach villas offer absolute privacy amid tropical greenery alongside powder-soft palm-lined white beaches. Food lovers can explore the six restaurants and bars, while those seeking complete relaxation will find their haven in the large spa set in beautiful tropical gardens which boasts a Turkish Hammam as well as a Vichy Shower and eight private treatment villas. The resort is noted for its gardens and tropical greenery and is ringed by a pristine coral reef where dolphins are frequent visitors. The active can explore the area on a host of excursions that include visits to the equator, local villages and fishing trips, while at the resort they can play tennis or badminton, take up watersports, learn yoga or simply hit the 24-hour gym. Outstanding diving and snorkeling opportunities surround the island on reefs that have barely been visited by humans while some of the country's best surfing breaks are just a quick speedboat journey away. Weddings take place just before sunset in the private wedding chapel set in a treelined garden or on the beach under a gazebo draped with flowing material. ... more   less
