Location & getting here
Ayada Maldives is located in the pristine Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll in the south of the country. Our atoll is often referred as the most beautiful region in the Maldives. All domestic transfers are arranged and booked by our reservations team.
Upon arriving to Velena (MLE), guests are greeted by one of our airport representatives and escorted to the domestic lounge, then later to the departing domestic flight gate. The resort is only a short (55 minutes) domestic flight and a speed boat trip (50 minutes) away from Male.
Ayada Maldives is also accessible via RUL, that requires a 70 minutes domestic flight, and a short 15-25 minutes speedboat ride.
