We just returned from our 4 night stay at Ayada and we were there 3 weeks after their opening. Overall I would sum up the experience of our stay as a resort with lots of potential to be a great resort, but fell short of our expectations in many areas. We have stayed at a few other resorts in Maldives and compared to other places, Ayada is well behind the curveball.

We arrived late night in Male and we were met by the Ayada staff at the arrival and helped with our check in for the domestic flight and made sure we were looked after until the departure gate. Upon arrival at the domestic airport, again we were met by the staff, helped with our baggage’s and whisked away to the boat that was waiting and the one hour boat ride went smooth. The transfer arrangements was arranged and looked after nicely by the staff.

When we arrived we were met by our butler and went through the check-in procedure at the reception. It was 2am and would have been nice if we were taken to the villa directly and offered in villa check-in. it took about 20 minutes at the reception going through check-in and all we wanted to do was to head to the villa.

We stayed at the water villa and it is done very nicely. Nice and spacious with good Turkish theme interiors and plunge pool. We noticed on the first day that the water in the plunge pool was quiet dirty and they never cleaned it throughout our entire stay. Needless to say we never got in that plunge pool throughout our stay.

Service is where they let us down big time. We bumped into our butler a few times and that was the only time we saw him and the one thing we asked him to arrange, to arrange an in-villa breakfast for one day and he forgot to do that and we had to call in-villa dining in the morning to place the order for the breakfast. The room boy service was mostly fine except on one occasion where they forgot to leave extra toilet paper. We thought it was a small mistake and called the reception around 9PM to bring in a roll of toilet paper, no one brought it. We woke up next day and called the reception again around 8am to send it with someone quickly and half hour went by and no one brought it. My wife lost her patience and called the reception again and told them that this is the worst service we have seen anywhere and then finally in another 15 mins we finally received it. We quite frankly were speechless by that kind of service in a place where we were paying $1K plus per night. Being a relatively new resort, we understand there are gonna be some hiccups but we felt very disappointed. There were no beach bags in the villa, we had to carry our stuff in a plastic bag we brought with us. This is probably gotta be the only resort we have stayed where they don’t have a guest beach bag. We didn’t see the in-villa dining menu in our villa and we rang the in-villa dining to ask for one and we never received it for our entire stay.

Food was another major let down for us. We had the half board package and both breakfast and dinner buffet was served at Magu restaurant. Breakfast buffet spread was very limited and I have seen better buffet spread in a four star business hotel. Dinner buffet spread was on the same standard with limited options and the quality of the food wasn’t that good. Overall a huge let down for us compared to the other resorts we have stayed in Maldives.

The one aspect we were really satisfied was with the dive shop. It was run by a very helpful and professional team of people and we had a great time doing snorkeling/diving. We did a few dives and went on a few snorkeling trips and the whole team was very helpful, courteous and a great bunch of people. The corals around the resort was some of the best we have seen in Maldives and there are some really good spots to dive in around the resort. Big kudos to the whole dive school team.

Overall our stay in Ayadha could have been great, but ended up being a very normal and disappointing stay.

Room Tip: Water Villa's further down the jetty.

Room Tip: 沙屋相对比较安静,出门就是海边性价比很好。水屋直接可以下水浮潜,相当特别,拍照装逼满分。如果想观看日出日落的话,需要选择好对应方向的房间。
