The staff made this trip exceptional. I didn't think my stay could possibly meet the expectations that I had going into it based on the other reviews I saw. Even though my expectations were raised, they were completely exceeded. Why? Simply put, the staff (or Talent). Everyone there takes so much pride in their work, it is evident in everything... More

I had very high expectations of W Maldives, given its hefty price tag, but after 5 sun-kissed days, my partner and I both agreed it was the best stay we've had - ever. The idyllic island setting, the well-appointed lagoon villa over the pristine waters of the Indian Ocean, and the W team who are genuinely eager to please, all... More

This was a great holiday, absolutely relaxing and refreshing. The beach was pristine and the property is surrounded by marvellous reefs. Mr Morgan, the diving instructor was great and helped us with our dive and it was an astonishing experience exploring the under water world. The restaurants were good and staff was always pleasant and helpful. We stayed at the... More

Better places in the Maldives for those who want a bit of style. Waters often with rubbish. Staff nice enough, but overall good but not great. Nightclub was not open anytime during our visit so perhaps assume this facility may not be open during your stay either.

We had our memorable honeymoon at the W Retreat & Spa in April 2015. Though the island wasn't very big, we had a fabulous time. The whole environment is absolutely superb, relaxing and refreshing. Weather: It wasn't always perfect but lucky it's still before the rainy season. There were a few scattered showers during the trip but it clears out... More

My husband and I visited for our honeymoon and loved every minute of our stay. Stunning marine life, a wide-ranging selection of cuisine, and meticulously maintained private and communal areas. All the staff made us feel very at home and the beaches are unparalleled. Special shout outs to Chunky, Morgan and Mutu. Thanks so much :)

We have travelled to the Maldives many times over the past seven years, staying in many different resorts. This resort is by far the very best we have experienced, the service, rooms, facilities, food and staff friendliness are all at a very high level. The house reef is amazing and there are many other activities to partake in if you... More
