You will not enjoy staying at this hotel unless you are on All inclusive and in Ocean villa. If you choose other options your stay here will be terrible. We can to celebrate our honeymoon and the staff were not aware of this although we told the reservation team. Service is average and you feel that the staff just doing there normal Job and not trying to mark your stay special Like other resorts in Maldives. Food is less than average and they have only 3-4 restaurants to choose from even if you are all inclusive The good food will be only chargeable here. We took the full board package which means that u have to pay even for soft drink and water. The only thing good about the resort is the sandy beach and crystal water and the nature of the island. I don’t recommend to stay here unless you are on the higher all inclusive level and the ocean villa would ch means the price will be very high and similar to more luxurious resorts.
My best friend and I take a thanksgiving holiday every two years. We leave family and friends behind and enjoy the laughter, memories, and joy of our location choice to vacation. 3 years ago, we selected Ayada but due to the pandemic, we were forced to postpone our trip. The resort was great in that they offered a full refund or to hold our initial payment until we were ready. Obviously, we chose the latter since I’m here discussing our trip. Ayada is everything that others have mentioned and so much more. Zakaria was our personal butler who was absolutely amazing. We tried not to bother him, but anytime we needed assistance, he was a text away. The benefit of a personal butler goes far above the standard expectation. Not having to stop and check in and having first hand service and knowledge through an in-house personal employee was genius!! Kudos to the team that set that in motion. We stayed 8 days and 7 nights with the Diamond Package and the Ayada Experience. GET THEM BOTH. The meals alone are worth the package. With both of them, we ended up with 3 massages included and the 4th one (Turkish Hammam) we paid for on our own. By the way, GET THE HAMMAM!!! It’s a memorable experience. One thing about Ayada is that their advertised pictures don’t do the scenery justice. No need to add filters or adjust the lighting, the location is as beautiful as it can get. I can’t imagine any other location as amazing as this. This is definitely a once in a lifetime trip and a dream come true. We stayed 3 nights in the sunset beach villa (311 is the BEST) and 4 nights in the Royal ocean suite(8888-there is only one). When we travel, if we stay more than 5 days, we try to split locations to get a variant experience. Again, this served as well as the two were both awesome, but the experiences were completely different. The decor for both were well designed and extremely spacious. I appreciate that Ayada has so many food choices (7 restaurants which includes the Sea Salt). Zero Degree was our go-to!! We had meaningful and interesting conversations with the staff, but we really enjoyed speaking with Tendia. He was personable and always remembered what we wanted to drink. That’s not to say the others were not, but his demeanor and service stood out. Whatever you do, please be sure to enjoy the Sea Salt dinner on the beach. The food was sooo good and the attention to detail was second to none. Let me say that the lengths this resorts goes to in an effort to get it right is unbelievable. I really have only one negative remark. I’m a full-figured woman and may I suggest having a few 2XL or 3XL robes on hand at your spa to accommodate others who are like me. When I pay that kind of money to vacation, I expect that my size would not inhibit my activities. Out of all my travels, this is the first time I’ve come across this problem. Maybe it’s an oversight, but large people travel too and if I pay, I expect that my needs will be met. Although travel to Ayada is a bit far in comparison to many other Maldives locations, with the opening of the new airport, I think it just made getting to this location a bit easier. I didn’t find it to be a problem, plus at every location, an Ayada representative met you with instructions and next steps. I never felt lost or as if I didn’t know what to do next. Again, they take time to ensure every “I” is dotted and every “T” is crossed. I truly recommend this resort and hopefully your time will be as enjoyable as our. It rain a bit while we were there but, I actually enjoyed the cool down period even if it was for only 20-30 mins. Happy Vacationing and thank you Ayada for a memorable experience!!! GET SOME LARGER ROBES!!!
The lagoon environment is good, so it was good every time I snorkeled. The food was delicious, too. If you come to Maldives, I strongly recommend you I'd also like to thank my butler, Shahin We made great memories in the Maldives. Thanks good bye
