Great hotel on a quiet island with wonderful beach
We started our Maldives holiday with a visit to Guhli Island (small local fisherman idland) staying at Ayala. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were looked after very well. The hotel is very nice on a very quiet island with a beautiful beach. We had free designated sun loungers in a prime spot on Bakini beach. We chose half board, but we found outselves drawn back for all other meals because the food was so good. We would love to go back and visit again one day.

Splendid and superb stay
What can I say... it is a superb! From the services, cleanings, dedicated beach umbrellas closest to the sea, and of course the amazing food! We have stayed for 6 days including breakfast & dinner, but we were also coming back to have lunch here because the chef is awesome! Overall service charge was low, but all the staffs were friendly and very kind. Their SPA is almost the only one within nearby islands and they got amazing esthetitians as well. Extended excursions to watch dolphines, nurse shark, whale shark, sting gray, turtle were all successful - thanks to Iron from sandyheaven! Overall, we could also see their management on contingency was perfect. Once the toilet on groundfloor nearby restaurant was broken they started immediately repairement and guiding all guests not to have an impact from unpleasant smell. The manager of this hotel seems to have a mild but extraordinary leadership, and he takes care of the hygiene the most. The beach closeby is very friendly for family with kids, white sand beach with low tide before noon. All other guests are very friendly and you can easily make friends, too! It was splendid days in Ayala!

Great for Families
The service was fantastic. The waitresses were super friendly and kind. The hotel rooms were clean, comfortable, and welcoming. They were nice and bright with a nice view. We were able to arrange some amazing trips while we stayed there. A short walk brings you to Bikini Beach. It's only a 30 minute boat ride from the airport in Male.

Relaxing Island holiday
Amazing experience! Gulhi is a beautiful small island and Ayala Ocean view is located beautifully just a minutes walk from the jetty. From connecting with us prior to our arrival to dropping us off at the airport and everything in between was well coordinate — the staff and management were absolutely the friendliest, supporting and most caring. This hotel opened up only a few months ago, the facility is clean, wi-fi is good and overall safe for single or group travelers. The bikini beach is only a minutes walk from the hotel and if you ask, the hotel will also give a free snorkeling gears. Also, if you need to get your PCR test done, there’s a hospital within the island, if you inform the hotel reception they will coordinate and help You get the test done. Gulhi is inhabited by laid back and welcoming locals. You can walk around the island uninterrupted. We would recommend Gulhi for solo, group or family travel. Overall this has been one of our best travel experiences so far.
