If you're undecided on what resort you should stay at in the Maldives, look no further...seriously. The W Retreat & Spa Maldives is by far the most incredible island resort my fiance have ever stayed at and we have traveled all across Asia. I've been a long time fan of TripAdvisor, but I've never felt compelled to write a review... More

This was hands down the most amazing place I've ever been to! It seemed like a complete dream to ever make it to this retreat, however, after some planning and saving we had it booked and started a 100 day countdown w/the W Maldives insider via Instagram, who made us feel like part of the island before we even got...

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

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 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
