Not a 5 star resort
We found that the resort did not meet our expectations as allegedly one of the best in Maldives (and corresponding price point): service was not good (slow and inattentive) and rooms need better maintenance (malfunctioning items). In addition, the resort is fairly far from Male, needing more than 3 hours to reach (1 hour domestic flight, 1 hour speed boat ride and at more than 1 hour waiting). We would not come back.

Beautiful island
A beautiful island with an immaculate resort. The water and beach are breathtaking. Our lagoon suite was dreamy to say the least. The good is just ok but you it’s all about the water!!!

Ayada was ABSOLUTELY fabulous. Our family had the best time, ever. We have been fortunate to stay at some nice resorts all over the world, including in Bora Bora, but Ayada was just special. Impeccable personalized service. Right from Male to departure, they have someone to help you and treat you special at every step. Everything has been thought out. Its like their management has walked through their customers shoes and understand and anticipate what guests will need. We stayed for five nights at sunset overwater suite and it was paradise on earth. I am not sure that I will stay in Garden view villas but ocean villas might be fine too. Walkways are just so well kept and manicured. Food was awesome with lots of options and varieties. I am very picky with my dietary choices and Ayada accomodated my our needs every day and with a smile. Nest beach is out of the world. Zero degree pool, bar and beach is gorgeous. Only drawback- Ayada is too far from Male and takes several hours to get there- one hour flight from Male and then one hour speed boat ride. Wish, there was a seaplane option straight to the resort. I will highly recommend this place. Expensive but well worth it, lifetime experience and memories. Will love to visit again.
