With year round high visibility, favorable weather conditions, stunning coral reefs and free flowing tides of the seasonal monsoons, the Maldives is a haven for divers and ocean lovers. 

Over 1,000 species of fish, coral and other marine life inhabit the waters throughout the Maldives; better yet, given the isolation of the Gaafu Dhaalu atoll, the underwater seascape found around Ayada Maldives is still undisturbed and awaiting discovery by enthusiasts. Gaafu Dhaalu atoll is fast gaining an international reputation as being one of the most incredible places to dive and snorkel due to the excellence of its coral reefs and untouched marine life.  Thanks to the relatively small number of divers, it’s still possible to dive a reef where the fish have never seen a human being before.

The courses on offer here are all developed by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) the world’s most premier diving education organization. All our courses guarantee quality and your certification will be globally acknowledged.  All courses are modular allowing for you to begin with an introductory course and progress to a certification course.


Big game fishing in Maldives water can be one of the most unforgettable adventures of lifetime for keen fisherman & first timers alike.  Get ready to tackle the big boys of the ocean: tuna, sharks, wahoo, sailfish, swordfish, barracuda . . . you never know what’s out there.

Saltwater fly-fishing is considered one of the most exciting methods of using a fishing rod.  Cast your line and see what bites when we bring you to our favorite fly fishing spot. 

Take a traditional Maldivian wooden boat and try your hand at traditional Maldivian fishing as we set sail before sunset and see if the fish bite.  If you’re lucky with your line, Ayada’s chef will prepare and cook your catch for you tomorrow. 

See the sights of the undersea world from the breezy comfort of our glass bottomed boat as we take you for a drive above the beautiful coral reefs of Ayada. 

See the island from another angle – from the ocean – as we take you on a boat trip around Ayada at sunset so you can take some spectacular pictures.  

Join the band of the select few who’ve crossed the Equator by sea and impress everyone with your souvenir signed certificate.  Please note: this excursion is weather dependent and the waves can be a little rough on this trip.

Let us take you to a nearby deserted island for a romantic Robinson Crusoe experience you’ll treasure forever. 

Sunset cruises are among the most romantic activities for honey moon couples in the Maldives.  Jump on board for a cruise into the beautiful blue ocean and make sure you have your camera with you to take some photos on the boat's top deck as you watch the sun goes down. 

Find out for yourself why we have a worldwide reputation for amazing coral reefs as we take you snorkeling to two of our favorite sites.

See what life is like on a real Maldivian island; see textiles being woven and maybe say hello to a few of the locals.  This island adventure starts at a traditional local village where you can immerse yourself in the lives of a local Maldivian community and drink fresh coconut after it’s been picked from the tree for you. 

We head out to join our neighbors in the ocean, the spinner dolphins to see them play and leap.  Note: sightings are not guaranteed but we’re pretty good at finding them. 

Grab your snorkel and jump on board for this trip to visit our lovable neighbors: spinner dolphins followed by snorkeling on a beautiful coral reef. Note: there is no swimming with dolphins on this trip and sightings aren’t guaranteed. 

Our house reef is one of the best in the country. Let one of our guides take you to explore its beauty.

Surf’s up!  AYADA Maldives is located only a few minutes' boat ride from some of the best surf breaks in the country.  So what are you waiting for? 

Our surfing program is ideal for both beginners and experts who want to surf a few the best surfing points in the Maldives.   We provide high quality guiding to the surf points, taking into consideration the weather, sea conditions and the forecast in the region.

If there are no more than four surfers, we use our 7-meter zodiac to access the surfing point with one captain, and our surfing guides. If we have more than four surfers, we use our 14-meter diving boat, together with our zodiac. 

We offer a variety of boards free of charge for a three to four hour trip.   We can go surfing two times a day, with the exact timings decided by the surfer and our guide according to the weather conditions.


Ayada Maldives has some of the most amazing coral reefs in the area which are well worth exploring, and snorkeling is the easiest and best way to discover the reef and abundant marine life. We recommend that you speak to us first regarding the ocean conditions because the currents may affect your experience. We advise you to begin snorkeling against the current as when you get tired, it is easier to come back with the current. Remember that sunburn is very common, so cover up with waterproof sunblock to protect yourself prior to snorkeling.  Fins, mask and snorkel are provided free of charge to our guests during your stay and we kindly request that you return them one day before your departure.  For less confident swimmers we also provide lifejackets to wear in the water free of charge.  Please see the map for the best snorkeling spots around the island.

Take a gentle tour of the island from the ocean on our ocean paddle boats either on a single or double canoe and enjoy the beauty of the sea while getting a good upper body workout. 

The mild winds and the shallow lagoon provide for the perfect conditions for wind surfing. Our water sports instructor will be happy to provide a refresher course or to teach you on the finer points of windsurfing. Combining the basic elements of surfing and sailing, Ayada Maldives offers a variety of options for windsurfing with different boards and sails for experienced windsurfers with lessons and courses available for those wishing to try for the first time. 

The latest trend to hit the water sports world, Stand Up Paddling (SUP) is easier than surfing and gives you the chance to catch more waves in set and get a better view of incoming sets.  As well as being tremendous fun, it’s also famous for giving a strong core workout – great for fitness fans. 

Set sail with our seasoned captain and enjoy the rush of adrenaline that comes from being out on the water on a catamaran. Visit a nearby island or simply bask in the delight of being in the open sea. These non-motorized sailing experiences are perfect either by day or at sunset. 

One of our most popular activities, here you can enjoy the thrill of speed on the water. As you head off to your adventure rest assured that one of our experienced guides will safely lead you to beautiful spots. 

Bounce across the waves in a tube connected by a rope to our speedboat. Just give it a try and you will understand why it’s called a FUN tube. With you sitting inside that tube, the boat slowly starts accelerating and you move just above the water at great speed. Great fun! 

The classic water fun: you sit with up to five people on the banana as we tow it at speed: the aim is to remain seated. As the speedboat gets faster and turns you’ll have to hold on to the banana and try to stay sitting on it. It’s an easy, fun, sport that’s safely conducted with lifejackets. 

When the wind is calm and the water on the lagoon is flat, it’s the perfect time to get out on the water for water skiing.  For seasoned water skiers, why not try the mono ski or wakeboarding? 

Speed lover? Long to feel the wind in your face and taste the tang of the sea spray?  Then ask about renting our speedboat and feel the gentle adrenaline rush as you race across the ocean.

Magu  (Main Restaurant)
Open for breakfast and dinner, Magu is Ayada Maldives’ main restaurant showcasing a generous international buffet with daily changing themes – for example Far Eastern, Chef's Special, Maldivian, Mexican, Mediterranean or Middle Eastern - ensuring that every night diners enjoy an abundance of variety and flavor. 

The buffet is noted for its emphasis on choice and quality: heaps of vegetables, salads and tropical fruits are set alongside steaming dishes, hot and fresh from the kitchen while a team of chefs are ready to conjure up a choice of dishes a la minute in the central show kitchen. 

Set on the beach, this elegant restaurant has a peaceful central reflecting pool and is surrounded by lush tropical greenery.  Diners have the options of sitting outside under the palm trees and wonderful Maldivian sky, or in an air-conditioned pavilion. 

Ocean Breeze  (Over water Restaurant & Bar)
Named after its beautiful over-water location where the warmth of the sun is tempered by a refreshing breeze, this stylish restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and offers gourmets a tempting menu of modern European dishes.  With regular seasonal changes to the menu, items such as grilled seafood, home-made pasta and fine steaks are perennial favorites. 

As one of the most romantic settings of the island, the open-air restaurant stands over the lagoon, in its sophisticated atmosphere. 

By day the endless shades of blue from the shimmering ocean enchant, while at night the restaurant transforms into a magical candlelit paradise.

Kai  (Far East Restaurant)
An exquisite range of far-eastern and Asian delicacies awaits in this gem of a restaurant hidden away amid tropical greenery.  Open for dinner each evening, diners can choose from an extensive sushi and sashimi list made from the freshest local seafood as well as classic interpretations of regional Asian specialties from China, Japan, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam.  The décor, with its calm reflecting pools and typical Japanese-inspired architecture, sets the scene for a memorable evening of fine dining. 

Mizu (Teppanyaki Grill)
The word Teppanyaki is derived from “Teppan” meaning iron hot plate and “Yaki” which means to grill or fry. That is exactly what you'll experience at Mizu : The chef will prepare the most delicious fish, meat and vegetarian dishes as you watch him skillfully cook in front of you with precision. Add to this the use of top quality ingredients, an extensive choice of sakes and wines and the characteristic of sitting between the ocean and the tropical Ayada Maldives.

Sea Salt  (Beach Barbecue)
Feel the magic of the Maldives at our mouthwatering beach BBQ held under a carpet of stars where you can feast on freshly grilled meat and seafood.

Ideally situated on our Zero Degree Beach with golden sand, amazing sunshine and a gentle sea breeze, this is the perfect place to savour food from the grill with your feet in the surf… a true delight!

Ile de Joie
Lovers of the finer things in life will adore this tiny over-water open-air cheese and wine bar set 100m over the lagoon.  Truly an ‘island of joy’, this is home to the island’s fine wines cellar where oenophiles will enjoy perusing the eclectic wine list, while the resident bartender can suggest the perfect tipple from a range of fine label cognacs, premium whiskies and other delectable bottled digestifs and aperitifs.  The collection of specialty imported, hand selected cheeses make this the perfect venue for open air pre- or post- dinner relaxation over a fine cigar from the well-stocked humidor.

Diners can choose sit up at the bar, walk through the chilled wine-fridge or simply enjoy the star-filled Maldivian night skies from seats carved into the shape of dhonis, a traditional Maldivian sailing boat.

Ottoman Lounge
This far-flung outpost of the Ottoman empire graces the island with fine Turkish teas and coffee presented in the traditional manner in filigree silver- service. Ayada Maldives showcases the beauty and unique experience of sipping authentically brewed Turkish coffee and specialty teas in a lounge with low seating, as inspired by a traditional café in Turkey. This welcoming lounge is a perfect spot for a private meeting or a relaxed drink with friends.  For a soothing afternoon ritual look no further than chef’s modern interpretation of afternoon tea. In the evenings, a choice of aromatic shisha water pipes (narghile) adds elegance.  The décor, with its sand-floor and thatched roof with carved wooden furniture, lends itself to photographic interest, especially in the evening when the ‘chandelier’ of hundreds of tiny Turkish style lanterns light up the lounge.

Zero Degree​
Zero Degree restaurant and bar is where you’ll find poolside dining at its finest: a simple yet wide menu of international dishes that addresses all cravings from crisp fresh salads to European, Asian and middle-eastern dishes. Guests can choose to dine barefoot in the water, under a thatched roof, in one of the poolside cabanas swathed in fabri, or of course for the ultimate sun lovers, the sun beds by the pool. At night, thanks to its incredible LED lighting display, the pool transforms into a myriad of tiny stars, reflecting the incredible night skies for a unforgettable midnight swim. 

At this time the bar becomes the social place to be, with live music, DJ and special events such as open air movies enjoyed in the pool while the bartenders work their magic from an enticing list of cocktails and guests dance the night away.


Maldives is a unique destination in the Indian Ocean providing you with extraordinary experiences. Experiences which will last a lifetime and make you crave for more of the Maldives.
