    Ayada Maldives 5*

    Дорога в отель занимает достаточно продолжительное время – около часа на самолете внутренних авиалиний и затем около 50 минут на катере. Поэтому с маленькими детьми добираться в отель может быть утомительно. Но семьи, которые все же решат посетить отель с детьми останутся довольны замечательными условиями для детей. Хороший детский клуб, предлагающий огромное количество развлечений не оставит равнодушными маленьких гостей отеля.

    Взрослых гостей отель сможет порадовать дайвингом и множеством иных водных видов спорта, а также разнообразием предлагаемых экскурсий. Рядом с островом есть очень хорошие волны, что открывает прекрасную возможность для серфинга. Как новички, так и профессионалы смогут здесь найти для себя подходящую волну.

    Нельзя не отметить павильон для проведения свадебных церемоний, расположенный в отеле. Павильон представляет из себя отдельное строение, что предлагает возможность проведения церемонии независимо от погодных условий.

    Так как менеджмент отеля турецкий в отеле можно заметить элементы декора, выполненные в турецком стиле, насладиться турецким кофе и кальяном, посетить любимый многими турецкий хамам. Но не смотря на это полностью турецкого концепта от отеля ожидать не стоит. В отеле каждый найдет что-то для себя. Радует разнообразие кухонь, предлагаемых в ресторанах отеля.

    Отдых в данном отеле можем рекомендовать любителям более экзотичных Мальдив, так как остров располагается далеко от Мале и немного отличается от расположенных ближе островов. Прекрасно подходит отель и для молодоженов – уютные номера и условия приятно порадуют влюбленных. И, конечно же, не останутся равнодушными любители серфинга.

    Ayada Maldives 5*

    The way to Ayada Maldives hotel takes a quite long time – about an hour by plane of domestic airlines and then about 50 minutes by speed boat. Therefore, getting to the hotel with small children can be tiring. But families who will decide to visit the hotel with children will stay happy with wonderful conditions for kids. Amazing kid’s club which offers a lot of entertainment will for sure be liked by little hotel guests.

    Adult hotel guests can enjoy diving and a variety of other water sports, as well as a variety of offering excursions. There are many good waves near the island, which opens an excellent opportunity for surfing. Both beginners and professionals will be able to find a suitable wave for themselves.

    Hotel has amazing pavilion for wedding ceremonies. The wedding pavilion is a separate building, where hotel can organize wedding ceremonies regardless of the weather conditions.

    Since the management of the hotel is Turkish, in the hotel you can note the elements of the décor made in Turkish style, enjoy Turkish coffee and hookah, visit the Turkish hammam loved by many people. But don’t expect fully Turkish concept in this hotel. Everyone can find something that will like. In Ayada restaurants you can enjoy the variety of cuisines.

    We can recommend this hotel for people who prefer exotic Maldives since the island is located far from Male and is slightly different from the nearby located islands. Hotel also perfectly suitable for honeymooners – comfortable rooms and conditions will pleasantly surprise couples. And, of course, fans of surfing will for sure stay satisfied in Ayada Maldives.

  2. Kateryna / July 31, 2018

    Отель Ayada находится под управлением турецкой семьи, они внесли все лучшее от турецкого сервиса, но при этом курорт не потерял мальдивскую атмосферу. Расположен остров на самом юге Мальдив, в атолле Гаафу Даалу, только domestic flight – 55 минут и скоростная лодка – 45 минут могут доставить Вас туда. Дорога достаточно долгая, но отдаленность от международного аэропорта, и других островов действительно создает ощущение необитаемого острова на краю света. Кроме того, летом, когда погода достаточно нестабильна и в северной части Мальдив Вас могут застать дожди – в Ayada климат более теплый и дождей приходится меньше чем в районе Мале, ведь отель находится всего в 30 км от экватора. Курорт на этом острове был поcтроен давно, так что ландшафт и растительность уже полностью сформировались, остров очень зеленый и красивый. Всего 8 категорий вилл, так что любая семья найдет свою комбинацию комнат, практически во всех номерах наружные ванны, в ocean villa бассейны, сетки над водой, стекляный пол. Интерьер очень традиционный, с темным деревом и немного турецкими деталями. Услуги дворецкого доступны каждой вилле. Рекомендую взять велосипеды напрокат (10 долларов в день) и обьездить весь остров. Во первых – получите ностальгические воспоминания о детстве, во вторых – лучший способ осмотреть территорию. 8 ресторанов на выбор, с разнообразными мировыми кухнями, сделают отдых не только приятным но и познавательно гастрономическим. Спа в Ayada может похвастаться своими размерами и наличием настоящего хамама. Но что делает отель особенным – наличие большого белоснежного свадебного павильона. Это имеено то место, куда хочется привезти семью и отметить важное событие. Детский клуб, спорт зал, центр водных видов спорта – все атрибуты мальдивского отдыха есть в Ayada. Если Вы ищите большой, красивый отель для семейного отдыха или большой свадебной церемонии – Ayada будет идеальным выбором.

    Hotel Ayada is managed by a Turkish family, they have made the best of the Turkish service, but the resort has not lost the Maldivian atmosphere. The island is located in the south of the Maldives, in the Gaafu Dhaalu atoll, only domestic flight – 55 minutes and a speed boat – 45 minutes can take you there. The trip is long enough, but remoteness from the international airport, and other islands really creates a sense of uninhabited island on the edge of the world. In addition, in the summer, when the weather is rather unstable and in the northern part of the Maldives you can be caught by rains – the Ayada climate is warmer and rains less than in the Male area, because the hotel is only 30 km from the equator. The resort on this island was built long ago, so that the landscape and vegetation have already fully formed, the island is very green and beautiful. A total of 8 categories of villas, so any family will find their own combination of bedrooms, almost all rooms have outdoor baths, ocean villas have pools, grids above water, glass floor. The interior is very traditional, with dark wood and a bit of Turkish detail. Butler services are available to every villa. I recommend taking bicycles for rent (10 dollars a day) and take a ride the whole island. Firstly – you will get nostalgic memories of childhood, and secondly – the best way to view the territory. 8 restaurants to choose, with a variety of world cuisines, will make the vacation not only pleasant but also gastronomic. Spa in Ayada can boast of its size and the presence of a real hammam. But what makes the hotel special is the presence of a large snow-white wedding pavilion. This is where you want to bring your family and mark an important event. Children’s club, sports center, water sports center – all the attributes of Maldivian resort are in Ayada. If you are looking for a large, beautiful hotel for a family holiday or a big wedding ceremony – Ayada will be the perfect choice.

    The hotel is located far from Male
    Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll, 430 km from Velana International Airport (Male).
    Transfer: 55 minutes domestic flight, then 50 minutes by speedboat to hotel.

    The island is large enough and very green, the vegetation will be different from the islands adjacent to Male

    The hotel was opened in 2011, all the constructions and decoration of the rooms are made of high quality materials. It is felt in all villas

    Most of the rooms give sense of privacy.
    The highest management from Turkey, and this is felt in the small details of the design and the stylistic direction of the rooms. It blends perfectly with the traditional Maldivian style and adds zest.

    The hotel has a magnificent beach, soft sand and a soft entrance to the water. Amazing lagoon
    There is a kids club (3-12 years old) there is a place for celebrations ( ” white house|”)
    Lots of activities and entertainment. Evening animation is also at a high level – guests are offered different program
    every day (light show, live music, fire show, etc.) the animation team is permanently located in the hotel and is the winner of the Turkish talent show
    The hotel has surfing and water sports (non-motorized sports free of charge)
    The hotel is fully consistent with its level and price.
    Great option for couples and families who want to see the true Maldives and visit paradise. In such places, we forget about the hustle and bustle of the city, can completely relax and get an unforgettable vacation.
