Just back from 5 nights at the fabulous W Resort and Spa Maldives. We found paradise. What a perfect mix of stunning environment (the blue of that water is for real! The abundance of fish and the house reef provide first class snorkelling), stylish accommodation, wonderful service, all to the cool beat of the W soundtrack. Food and drinks were... More

This is one the better resorts that we have ever been to. Of course it is expensive, but I felt well worth it, almost a value... Well considering this the Maldives. The OWB are extremely well designed - focusing on the terrace and offering touches that are stylish and sort of local, at the same time. The food was actually... More

At least for a beach vacation. My husband and I went to the W Retreat & Spa in the Maldives for our honeymoon in 2007 and, having enjoyed it so much, returned each of the following two years. In the five years that followed, we tried other places. The St. Regis Bora Bora, Princeville and Punta Mita. We looked into... More

We started researching and planning where to go on our honeymoon about 4 months prior to our travel date. Initially we were debating on going to Bora Bora, as it is closest to us because we live in Hawaii. Or Maldives, which was a bit more of a travel. But after looking at the reviews and researching we decided to... More

We have been to different Maldivian resort so we are able to make the comparison. The first thing is the transportation from Male to the island which usually takes a lot of time, waiting at the airport. For this resort everything is perfectly organized and we waited only 45 minutes in a perfect lounge at Male. Usualy for other resorts... More

Travelled as a couple for four nights, and stayed at a lagoon facing ocean oasis villa, which is highly recommended if you'd like to dive off your pool platform and into the ocean, swimming to the nearby beachfront. The villa is modern, clean, spacious and has a glass panel in room which allows you a view of the water below... More
