After spending magical 2 weeks on this beautifully manicured island surrounded by the clearest turquoise waters in the world, where does one start? From the moment we landed in Male, we were approached by a very friendly and professional Ayada representative who took us to the air conditioned lounge area to rest after our long flight whilst he organised everything....

Not an easy place to get to though! 7 hour flight from London to Abu Dhabi, another few hours to Male, 1 hour domestic flight then 1 hour on a speed boat! but it is so worth it. A slice of heaven on a earth. Breathtakingly beautiful. The villas, the food, the activities,... More

We have spent three nights at the amazing resort and all I can say is wow. You are greeted at Male international airport upon arrival by a representative of the resort who checks you in for your domestic flight as well as the resort.

Having been to Bora Bora twice and having loved it both times, I was keen to check out the Maldives and see how it stacked up. I loved it. The snorkelling was amazing, being able to swim from our villa for a minute or 2 to the amazing reef drop off is just extraordinary. It's like an underwater paradise, with... More

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!

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
