Ayada Maldives

Discover Ayada Maldives

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 - comes in the form of nine villa and suite options that combine contemporary, traditional Maldivian design and also includes a few superb Family Suites. A wide variety of dining choices include a selection of sensational overwater options. The vibrant coral reefs around Ayada are teeming with marine life and a highlight of a stay here is the enormous choice of leisure activities - from diving and snorkelling to surfing excursions and catamaran sailing trips.
