My (now!) fiancé and I stayed at The W for 5 wonderful nights and I can honestly say that it was the most amazing experience - both in service and location - we have ever had. We stayed in a Lagoon Oasis room at the very far end of the resort. The view, the direct water access, the facilities and... More

We split our stay between an over-water villa and a beachfront villa. The beachfront villa was a small fraction of the price as the over-water and honestly we preferred it. You get your own stretch of private beach, great private pool. Was lovely. The over-water villas are beautiful too- but the shower water-pressure was terrible. Great service. The resort was... More

My husband and I did plenty of research (including tripadvisor) as to where we wanted to spend our honeymoon. We searched through Fiji, Seychelles, Bora Bora and the Maldives. We knew we wanted tropical, to experience the best service and to try the infamous "over the water huts" as Matt likes to call them. I cannot explain how thrilled we... More

We are very picky about hotels and often stay at W hotels, this one lived up to the hype. We decided on a Beach Oasis room ours was 217, great location and right across from a "Sweet spot" which is where they have free ice cream snacks and bottled water. Arrival: The lounge was a great way to freshen up... More

This was our second trip to the Maldives and whilst our first visit to another resort was close to being perfect, our most recent visit to W was disappointing. First the positives: - House reef was beautiful. Plenty of fish just off the beach. Best snorkelling was around the spa. We were lucky enough to see a turtle on our... More

Our stay at the W Maldives was splendid!
