Everything is perfect ”
we has a wonderful trip.everything is perfect. If anyone wants travel to Maldives I would suggest Ayada
Our stay is wonderful. Staff are exceptionally friendly and nice. From the moment we arrived at the airport till our departure date they pampered us. You don’t even have to worry about checkin in your luggage, their representative will do it for you. During our stay, we met Rachelle front office manager, Jonette sales manager who are very nice, they made sure that our stay is going to be a memorable one. Chef John even cooked us special food. What makes it more special was that when they found out that we were celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary, Dev our butler send us anniversary cake, then Munjo decorated our bed with flowers with “Happy 21st Anniversary”. I can’t thank enough Jonette, Dev our butler, Rachelle and her staff for making our vacation dream come true! Thank you Ayada family. Till we meet again.
This is my second time in Maldives, and I liked this hotel”
This is my second time in Maldives, and I liked this hotel and may book it agian and again. I like the price and the services. It worths avery cent spent on this island. I miss it already.
Amazingly beautiful place. Villas were wonderful and food excellent. Very long commute (one of the furthest resorts) from Male so would not suggest for families with younger children. Butler was a little pushy with the add-on activities but overall an excellent experience.
We are group of travel”
I’m would like to said the hotel is nice , we group of friends travel for Maldives Ayada hotel, we choose family suit for 6 person stay! Since when we arrived Mel international airport we have to choose Ayada hotel arrange airport transfer the price is USD385 per person. We have to take 1 hours domestic flight to kaadedhdhoo airport and take about one hours speed boat to the island , the place very nice , the resort is clean and the staff is nice , just everything have to add another GST 12 % and 10% service tax total we spent have to add another 22% , the tax is very high when u spend. We try 2 different seafood dinning on the beach, the environment is really fantastic, the BBQ buffet is nice , another MIZU teppayaki the chef and environment is nice only ! We enjoy the trip

Very nice and superb facility ”
this is one of the most amazing resort i stayed in the staff are amazing specially our butler Burak he is very nice, the location is very quite and Villas are nice and space is large
Only resort in the vicinity thus its very peaceful! The sunset villla was amazing esp the view from the room. There are plenty of activities to do and the resort even plans other special events e.g carnival night to keep their guests entertained! The resort crew were amazing too! They will go the extra mile and make you feel like royalty!
Spectacular New Year Holiday at the Ayada! ”
Our stay at the Ayada for New Year’s was spectacular! :-) Firstly we were received with an upgrade to the Royal Suite by the charming and efficient butler Burak (he was one of the highlights of the trip). Then the weather was amazing: the daily very sunny days (put lots of sunscreen!!!) enabled us to swim before breakfast with peculiar neighbours like dolphins (they came close to our villa and we swam close the them just using snorkels), baby sharks and "Nemos". Every detail was special and when something could have been better, Burak and the team were there to make it up and pamper us showing great openness to feedback and willingness to make our trip the best possible. Although a big resort and full occupancy it never felt busy as bungalows and villas are spread out. Guests were cool and sympathetic. Breakfast was a highlight as well (Shafik's service was great). Any juice you wanted they pressed. Any type of eggs they prepared and in general food on all restaurants was great
The perfect place”
The all services was really luxury, from the VIP lounge at the airport to the staff welcome, and the whole island is breathtaking! This is the real paradise! It was our best week of our life! The all meal were plenty, fresh and tasty. There was a really huge selection! Every person from the staff was really friendly and helpful. The room cleaner come twice per day to clean our room! The reef was wonderful, we saw turtles, colorful fishes, rajas and dolphins (with boat). If we will go to Maldives again, we will only come to Ayada! Thank you everything!
Gorgeous view. Food is pricy ”
We were unlucky, as it was always raining when we were there. So we couldn’t do lots of things and have limited activities to do indoor. Food and spa were pricy. Service was good. Hope there could be more cheaper indoor activities to do in rainy days.
Wonderful place, with extremely welcoming staff. Beautiful beyond words, and definitely value for money. Special thanks to Burak whom is our butler, made every arrangement seamless and perfect. This is the ideal destination for a honeymoon and for couples. I just love the space and view at the sunset ocean villa! Highly recommended, 10/10!
Absolutely the best vacation. We stayed in a sunset family ocean suite. The suite was immaculate, beautifully designed, very private, and just stunning. Couldn't be easier to snorkel just down a few steps and out toward the edge of the reef. Kids were pleased to see sea turtles and even some reef sharks, and really enjoyed holding baby sea turtles at the fish feedings. Considering its remote location, we were amazed at the food available at Ayada. Meals were excellent - always something for everyone, lots of choices, beautiful presentation. Room service was convenient and reasonable. The service at Ayada makes it stand out above other resorts. We have never been better welcomed or taken care of from beginning to end of a stay. Burak in particular, and other staff, went out of their way to make our celebration weekend memorable. The extra flight and speedboat ride to get there made it seem all the more exotic.
My partner and I both needed a relaxing holiday, I normally go on adventures however every so often I need to recharge. We had seen a picture of an Ocean Villa on the internet and it looked magical and it was! It takes a while to get there (for us from Europe 3 flights and a speed boat - the last flight and speed boat are organised by Ayada and take about an hour each) however when we did you instantly feel relaxed. The staff are so friendly, we completely missed breakfast on the first morning as the island has it's own time zone - an hour ahead of Male but they made us an omelette and lots of bread and pastries (more than we needed!). All the staff were smiling and ready to help. Sandeep in the Mizu restaurant is an excellent chef and it was a great evening. The food in all the restaurants was lovely and the Sea Salt BBQ had a great atmosphere. Time there disappears, we were there 6 full days and are not really sure what we did - there are lots of activities however we enjoyed relaxing with our private pool, catching up on sleep and a few bottles of bubbles! We hope to go back!
Wonderful place to relax”
Pros: - Setting is truly memorable and idyllic - Butler service seems strange at first, but the personalised service really makes the resort more friendly and approachable. Burak did an excellent job taking care of us, recommending activities where we requested and generally making our stay very smooth. - "house reef" has abundant wildlife (fish, sharks, turtles, dolphin, etc.) and is generally in pretty good shape - Rooms have great layouts (can highly recommend the sunset lagoon suites) - Food was high quality considering the distance from the nearest farm, the buffet had an abundance of choice and dietary restrictions were thoughtfully handled - Lots of activities (scuba diving, snorkelling, tennis, gym, spa, wildlife viewing, etc). - Spa was excellent, from the range and flexibility of services, the quality of products used (sourced from ESPA), to the wonderful staff. Cons: - Everything is expensive, similar to other ultra high-end resorts. Difference compared to other vacation spots is you are stuck on the island and can't go into the town for cheaper food. All activities & food had eye-watering "menu prices", then tack on tax and service fees and it adds up quickly. - Distance from Male - once you include transfer times between your international & domestic flights, figure on 4-5 hours once you land in Male to get to the resort. Return means leaving the resort at least 5 hours before your international flight from Male.
