Showcasing the natural island environment, the award-winning Ayada Maldives is a wonderful choice for a luxurious Maldives holiday, both for families or couples. In the Gaafu Atoll in the southern Maldives, just a few miles from the equator, it's a slightly longer journey to get to, but well worth it. The design of the resort appeals to broad tastes, with butler service, wide-ranging leisure activities, as well as a choice of board options, including All Inclusive.
Sumptuous accommodation - most with private pool - includes nine villa and suite options that combine contemporary, traditional Maldivian design and also include a few superb Family Suites. A wide variety of dining choices include some sensational overwater options. The coral reefs here are teeming with marine life and a highlight of a stay at Ayada is the enormous choice of leisure activities which include surfing excursions and catamaran sailing trips.
Accommodation highlights include: Sunset Lagoon Suites which are perched on the beach but have an over-water terrace as well as a plunge pool and Jacuzzi; Sunset Ocean Suites complete with a plunge pool and a glass floor viewing panel in the living area; and for families there are Ocean Family Suites and a superb selection of Beach Villas and Beach Suites, the latter two categories of which can inter-connect for larger groups and offer more privacy amidst tropical greenery. Complimentary WiFi is included in all villas and public areas.
Ayada Maldives has no less than seven dining venues and bars. 'Magu', the main restaurant, offers a daily changing international buffet with indoor and outdoor seating, while the romantic 'Ocean Breeze' has a spectacular overwater setting for its European cuisine and fresh seafood. There's also the 'Mizu' Teppanyaki grill, 'Kai' - an Asian restaurant, as well as 'Sea Salt' for beach barbecues. Last, but by no means least, the 'Ile de Joie' is set 100m out over the lagoon and is a unique cheese & wine bar and home to the resort's wine cellar - the perfect place to relax and enjoy the star-filled Maldivian night sky. The resort is perfect for a romantic Maldives honeymoon.
Recreational activities are a highlight at Ayada Maldives with experienced staff always on hand. On land, there's tennis, volleyball, and badminton as well as three jogging trails, while for water sports enthusiasts the choice is almost bewildering. In addition to diving and fishing options, activities include sailing, kayaking, wakeboarding, banana boat rides, as well as catamaran sailing, and special 'equator crossing' excursions. Ayada is also just a few minutes' boat ride from some of the best surf breaks in the Maldives, and the resort's surf program is ideal for beginners and experts. For relaxation and rejuvenation, visit the AySpa where there are also hydrotherapy baths and Turkish Hammam. For younger guests, the ZuZuu Kids Club provides daily recreational and educational activities.
