Ocean Breeze

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 One of the resort’s most romantic restaurants, the thatched-roof open-air restaurant stands on stilts over the lagoon, with sophisticated white muslin curtains framing the views. By day the endless shades of blue of the shimmering ocean enchant while at night the restaurant transforms into in a magical candlelit paradise where mysterious fish swim in flood-lit waters below


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


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

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 or tulip-shaped glassware, as it has been for centuries in Turkey. Here Ayada Maldives showcases the beauty and unique experience of sipping authentically brewed Turkish coffee and specialty teas in a lounge inspired by a traditional café in Turkey, complete with Ottoman style furnishings, intricate light fixtures and low seating. 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, which brings a touch of Maldivian and Turkish flavors into the setting. In the evenings, a choice of aromatic shisha water pipes (narghile) adds elegance. The décor, with its sand-floor and thatched roof with typically Turkish 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 all served by the pool. Those who come early enough can book one of the four tables that are actually in the pool and dine barefoot in the water. Shaded dining tables under a thatched roof await later diners. Other favorite dining destinations are the poolside cabanas, swathed in fabric and of course for the ultimate sun lovers, the sun beds in the pool. At night, thanks to its incredible LED lighting display, the pool transforms into a sparkling water wonderland filled with a myriad of tiny stars, reflecting the incredible night skies above as the bar becomes the social place to be with live music, DJ and special events such as open air movies enjoyed from the comfort of an inflatable lounger in the pool itself. The bar tenders work their magic from an enticing list of cocktails and libations while guests can dance the night away on the dance floor or even go for a midnight swim should the fancy take them
