Ayada Maldives is situated in the relatively unexplored Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll in the south of the country – just a few kilometres above the equator. Guests arriving at (Velana MLE) Malé International airport will be greeted by an airport representative and escorted to the VIP lounge. This is followed by a 55 minutes scenic flight over the most beautiful atolls – to KDM domestic airport, the closest airport to Ayada. You will then be met by another representative, who will take care of your luggage and escort you to the Ayada speedboat. The boat will bring you to Ayada Maldives resort, where the staff will be waiting to take good care of you.
