Included in Conde Nast Traveller’s list of best hotels in the Maldives, voted the ‘Indian Ocean’s Leading Luxury Resort’ and the ‘Indian Ocean’s Leading Villa Resort & Spa’ at the 2014 World Travel Awards, Ayada Maldives is a private island resort offering a truly luxurious retreat with a genuine Maldivian style. Ayada is set in the relatively unexplored Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll in the South of the country.
Traditional thatched-roof water-villas stand on stilts over the resort’s peaceful lagoon, while beach villas offer absolute privacy amid tropical greenery alongside powder-soft palm-lined white beaches. With butler service, six restaurants, a large spa which boasts a Turkish Hammam and eight private treatment villas this really is a luxury surf getaway for the ultimate combo of relaxation and pumping waves!
Located only a few minutes’ boat ride from some of the best surf breaks in the country, Ayada is ideal for both beginners and experts who want to surf some of the best waves in the Maldives. With a 7 meter Zodiac and a 14 metre dive boat, and its own second zodiac there are plenty of surf options for different skill levels and waves. Ayada offers a variety of boards free of charge for three to four hour trips and has two surf trips daily, with the exact timings decided by the surfer and our guide according to the weather conditions.

Flying into the Maldives you would be landing in Male Ibrahim Nasir International Airport on the island of Hulhule, just outside of the capital of Male. From there, most operators can arrange transfers via boat or seaplane, depending on the distance. You may need to spend a night in Male as many operator’s transfers depart early in the day.
