Ayada Maldives

Ayada Maldives Offers Simple and Authentic Elegance With a Great Range of Activities…

Description & Location

Ayada Maldives is a beautifully designed, simply elegant resort, with fantastic facilities and range of accommodation. Romantic, yet at the same time family focused.

Ayada Maldives is located on the southern rim of the Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll on the lush tropical island of Magudhduvva, 55 minutes domestic flight from Male to Kaadedhoo Airport and then 50 minutes speedboat transfer to the resort. View the journey as part of the holiday experience: it adds to the real sense of escapism and exclusivity.


Ayada Maldives has a total of 122 villas, spread over 9 different categories.

All are spacious with over 100 sqm of total living space and are furnished in bright, cool contemporary colours, perfectly in keeping with the style of the islands. All can accommodate two adults and one child.

You have a choice of:

Garden Villas (10). Located in a separate area set back in the garden, just a few minutes walk from the beach. They provide the entry-level rate and offer exceptional value, albeit without sea view.  100sqm including in and out living space.

Beach Villas (33). Directly located on the beach, spacious with 103 sqm of total living space, including expansive veranda and private plunge pool. *

Beach Suites (4).  As above, but larger at 115sqm and more integrated living space. Several can connect with Beach Villas. *

Sunset Beach Suites (14). As implied, located at the sunset side of the island, some of the largest villas at 137sqm with sitting area, large veranda, private plunge pool and Jacuzzi. *

Ocean Villas Overwater (33). These romantic villas are positioned in the water on stilts with steps down into the sea. Large veranda sundeck and private pool. *

Sunset Lagoon Suites (11). As above, but even larger with 156 sqm of living space including a separate living room. You access by a short walkway from the beach. *

Sunset Ocean Overwater Suites (14) As above, but with 172 sqm of total living space. Glass floor panel in the living room.*

Sunset Ocean Overwater Family Suites (2). As above, but with part of the living space converted into a 2nd family bedroom and extra en-suite bathroom. *

Ayada Royal Ocean Overwater Suite (1). The ultimate accommodation at the resort, wonderfully located at the tip of the jetty, a total of 318 sqm. Spread over two floors with a bedroom and en-suite on each floor. Huge veranda and swimming pool. *

*Overwater and /or  accommodation with private pool is wonderfully romantic and the attraction is undeniable. However, it might not be our choice for those with young children learning or unable to swim. You might be asked to sign an insurance waiver upon booking.

Ayada Maldives offers a real sense of elegance and total escapism.

A complete resort with an amazing variety of dining options spread around the island. The Resort operates on a breakfast only basis, with half board and two All inclusive options. It is stylish, but without the cold arrogance found in some alternative resorts. Consider the journey as part of the holiday experience – Yes, some offer a shorter easier transfer but are in much busier atolls.

This is one of the more remote Atolls, so you are well away from the busier areas found closer to the international airport. The resort is Mediterranean owned, and a Turkish design influence is evident in several areas, particularly the spa.

Even though the passport office say they can cope with demand at the moment, I have still been told to expect at least 4 /6 weeks for a new passport to arrive. As travel demand increases the longer it will take unless you want to pay extra for fast track…

Although the Sandbox scheme has improved week on week since its introduction in early July, and most of the southern resorts have a high vaccination rate and low cases, the UK Government has chosen to look at the entire country and made it all on the UK Red traffic light NO GO area.

Click for Booking Terms, Price Guides & Flight Information

All price guides are Per Person Sharing Double Room (Entry level), based on travel between May and/or June when prices are generally at their lowest and include promotional offers.
Supplements will probably apply at other times, particularly mid-summer in the Med, and for rooms and/or transfers arranged for single travellers.

For example, the Caribbean and Indian Ocean prices for winter can be approximately double the May – June level and about 50% more in Asia.

For the Mediterranean & Canary IslandsCaribbeanArabia and the Indian Ocean (except Sri Lanka) price guides generally include airfare and transfers.

*For Sri Lanka and Far East we show a per person per night hotel guide, excluding airfare, as arrangements tend to be individually tailored multi-centre itineraries.

Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, some hotels may have changed their facilities. Standard descriptions like distance from airport or town remain consistent as does the overall resort style. However, the number of restaurants, swimming pools, if more than one, are by example flexible and can change depending on occupancy and circumstances. Spa facilities, in particular, may be changed depending on local and international suggestions.


If your holiday decision is based on any specific facility please let us know at the time of booking so we can ascertain availability from the hotel. Please note, such information may be accurate at the time given but could be subject to change. In these times it would be prudent to be open-minded and flexible on such matters.


The situation on destination entry seems to vary month to month, or in some cases week to week or even day-to-day. For updated information please refer to the UK Government travel advice https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice. This will provide you with information on entry requirements including COVID-19 testing and any quarantine stipulations,  especially on return to the UK. As you will know this information is constantly changing, frequently at short notice as evidenced by our own Government actions.
