The W retreat was a dream of a resort. A literal paradise with the amenities of a five star nyc hotel. The snorkeling was breathtaking, rooms jaw dropping, and the fresh fish each day, either in the restaurant or in your room via in room dining, was some if the best we've ever tasted! Chunky is the soul of the... More

The W Maldives is everything that you hope for, when you book a holiday to the Maldives. The island is picture-postcard perfect, the ocean is warm and turquoise and the rooms, and facilities, are 5*. Yes, it is expensive. But, unlike some so-called 5* resorts, here you can see where your money has gone, and you feel like you are... More

After weeks of reading and research and becoming thoroughly exhausted with trying to find the perfect resort for this my first time to the Maldives, I finally selected W because of the consistent praise of the house reef. This was a rather short three night stay. However, after spending one night at Traders Male (which is a fine hotel right... More

I have always been a big fan of Starwood Properties worldwide, and this is the best resort experience so far. The W Team did wow me from the first step landed.

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.
