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.


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 digestives and aperitifs.


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.

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.


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.
