Amazing getaway. Arrived by seaplane from main airport to our private paradise. Service terrific from the W staff. All rooms whether on the beach or overwater are fantastic. Our 2000+ square foot beach villa had an "attic" upstairs with a full beach view, swinging day bed, ceiling fan which was perfect for afternoon relaxing. The patio included another day bed,... More

I recently stayed at the W Maldives for just shy of a week. Those who have read my reviews know that I can be very critical of hotel experiences. With a few very tiny exceptions, the W was absolutely amazing from beginning to end. Because my criticisms were few, I'll start with them first. One, the food options were a... More

W Maldives is a great honeymoon and vacation destination! World-class style and design. Staff friendlier than in other 5-star hotels or resorts. Great activity options like seabob, diving to the under-water W sign in the beautiful house reef or staying one night on a lonely island with romantic beach BBQ... Just to mention a few! 110% recommended. We just returned... More
