W Retreat & Spa Maldives - only the best memories! We have been there twice. Some people can say "There are so many Maldivian hotels! Why go second time to the same place?" We would say - Why search better of the best? Our first time in W Maldives in 2011 was perfect and beautiful! Much fun, dancing, fishing with... More

We looked at quite a few different options before settling on the W Retreat. Ideally we were looking for something that was fairly modern in terms of the rooms, a water villa experience, and something not overly formal. The W ticked off all of those boxes though we were a bit worried prior to going that it might be too... More

The W Maldives is the best Starwood Property I have ever stayed at. The property itself is incredible with beautiful beaches and clear water for days. But what really makes this property special is the service and the staff. The GM runs a tight but yet beyond friendly ship, the staff are always happy and helpful. The breakfast buffet is... More

This is a fantastic location and the welcome at the airport and the dedicated W lounge were really good. The island is lovely with all the usual white sand and turquoise sea. We stayed in a ocean villa which was fantastic for privacy, own plunge pool and a great feature was you could see all sorts of fish etc just... More

"Wow!" tells everything about this hotel in nutshell. Opt for an entry-level beach house, no need to overpay for water villas - they are less private and more remote from a lovely house reef. Boat snorkelling trip, night snorkelling and fishing were all fun with great instuctors. A pool next to the bar is a refreshing break b/w ocean swims.Excellent... More

A group of 8 girls. We went to celebrate our friend's 40th birthday. The staff at the hotel did everything they could to make our four nights a wonderful experience.
