Date of Stay: March 2nd - 9th. My wife and I are probably not the usual W guests. We are police officers on an average wage and a few of the reviews on here suggested it was a bit of a millionaire’s playground. It was a big decision to spend so much money coming here, but it was a long... More

W Retreat is really a true paradise, this was my first time in a W hotel and it was a great experience. I defiantly recommend this island if you can afford it because it is not cheap, but worth the money. The island is a small one, it takes roughly 8-10 minutes to walk around it. The island is more...

We stayed in the hotel in January. It is worth noting the coral reefs, starting at 30 meters from the house residence with magnificent colorful underwater world in which you will definitely see a large number of fish, local turtle living in areas Spa area, stingrays and small reef sharks. I express my gratitude to the work of the staff:... More

We didn't have the usual smooth transfer at the airport due to a mix up with flight times, but the W staff soon had us whisked off to the seaplane lounge and on the next flight. We were greeted at the jetty by smiling members of staff and a welcome glass of champagne before being given a brief tour of... More

We stayed for one week in February 2015, and again found the W Retreat Maldives a truly exceptional place where they get everything right. Very welcoming, warm service; extremely professional.

The W retreat is for sure the best Maldivian resort. The main difference between the resorts in Maldives is the service. There are some good resorts where the staff is looking only for tips or the service is bad. In W retreat the services are perfect. I suppose this is due to the perfect management. Every morning at breakfast you... More

This was my first visit to Maldives and after much thought and contemplation picked W over the Four Seasons. We reached Maldives at an unearthly hour (when the seaplane transfer is not available) so had to check into the Hulhule hotel for a few hours as recommended by W. Hulhule is a disappointing place to start the holiday with. However,... More
