Ayada Maldives, a new resort in the Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll in the Maldives, is now open and welcoming its first guests.
Located amid a pristine reef within the southern rim of atoll in the southern Maldives, 268 miles south of the capital Male, the island based resort occupies 150,000 square metres of undisturbed and indigenous vegetation and offers uninterrupted views of the breathtaking Maldivian landscape.
The 112-villa resort comprises 33 Beach Villas, four Beach Suites, 14 Sunset Beach Suites, 33 Ocean Villas, 11 Sunset Lagoon Suites, 16 Sunset Ocean Suites and a duplex Ayada Royal Ocean Suite.
Guests can enjoy a variety of dining experiences found in the seven restaurants, an extensive 3500sqm AySpa & Health Club managed by ESPA, a dive and watersports centre and a kid’s club.
Firat Aydeniz, member of the board of directors of the Aydeniz Group, said: “Our vision for Ayada Maldives was to provide a sanctuary for visitors whereby we offer luxurious accommodation and diverse dining options complemented by genuine warmth and hospitality from our employees.
“It was of paramount importance to us to showcase the beauty and tranquillity of the location and thus, the design features large open spaces whereby the natural elements play an integral part of the guest experience with every villa offering plunge pools with large outdoor terraces and either direct lagoon or beach access and some villas with glass floor panels.
“We also wanted to infuse elements of the Ottoman culture into Ayada Maldives and as such subtle influences can be found in the decorative design of the villas, the Turkish Hammam in the spa and the Ottoman Lounge.”
Ayada Maldives has already got off to a strong start, having been recognised by the World Travel Awards as the Indian Ocean’s Leading New Resort.
