Ayada Maldives wins two significant awards at the September 2014 World Travel Awards ceremony, being awarded the ‘Indian Ocean’s Leading Luxury Resort’ and the ‘Indian Ocean’s Leading Villa Resort & Spa’.

“As a relatively new luxury resort the whole team of Ayada Maldives is extremely proud to have been voted the best, not only in the Maldives, but best of all resorts in the Indian Ocean,” said general manager Zafer Agacan.  “We’re aware of the extremely high standards set in the region and would like to thank the World Travel Awards for the acknowledgement that we belong in that circle of the very best.  This reflects the hard work done by the team here and their dedication to achieving only the very best”.

Ayada Maldives is an exclusive private island resort offering an unrivalled luxurious retreat and a genuine Maldivian experience.  Set in the relatively unexplored Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll in the south of the country – just a few kilometres from the equator –  the island offers 112 spacious villas and suites, all with private pools, butler and thoughtful five-star detailing.  Traditional thatched-roof water-villas stand on stilts over the resort’s peaceful lagoon, while beach villas offer absolute privacy as they nestle amid tropical greenery alongside powder-soft palm-lined white beaches.  Food lovers can explore the seven restaurants, while those seeking complete relaxation will find their haven in the large spa set in beautiful tropical landscaped gardens which boasts a Turkish Hammam as well as a Vichy Shower and eight private treatment villas.

The resort is noted for its gardens and tropical greenery and is ringed by a vibrant coral reef where dolphins are frequent visitors.  The active can explore the area on a host of excursions that include visits to the equator, local villages and fishing trips, while at the resortthey can play tennis or badminton, take up watersports, learn yoga, Pilates or Zumba or simply hit the 24-hour gym.  Outstanding divingand snorkeling opportunities surround the island on reefs that have barely been visited by humans while some of the country’s best surfing breaks are just a quick speedboat journey away.  Weddings take place in the golden hour just before sunset either in the air conditioned wedding chapel set in a tree-lined lawn, or outdoors on the beach under a pagoda of flowing gauze and flowers.

Loading Maldives Offers....
Please be informed about some changes regarding hand baggage regulations with Trans Maldivian Airways,  We have been informed that many passengers are reluctant to leave their hand baggage with the sea plane crew and have it stored in the baggage compartment. In response to this, TMA has slightly amended their hand baggage policy as follows, effective from 01st September 2014:
Passengers are now allowed to take 01 piece hand baggage in the aircraft, without storing in the baggage compartment (Maximum 5KG, Length 33CM, Width 20CM and Height 28CM). Hand baggage which will not fit underneath the seat must be loaded in the baggage compartment.
In the event where the passenger requests the hand baggage to be stored in the baggage compartment, Crew will accept the hand baggage and store in the hand baggage compartment.
However, please be advised that the Captain still reserves the right to store all hand baggage in the baggage compartment if he considers this necessary for safety reasons.
