My wife and I recently went to the W Resort and Spa in Maldives to celebrate our Honeymoon. We decided on staying in the Beach Oasis room because we not only wanted access to the water but also a beach to relax on which the overwater bungalow did not offer. Needless to say we had an AMAZING time at this... More

What's not to love about the W Maldives? Previous reviewers have described it perfectly and it is hard to add anything really. Apart from the idyllic location, the glorious sunshine, the turquoise water and the abundance of fish in front of your nose it is the W people (Talent) who are all just terrific. They became our extended family for... More

I recently stayed at the W for New Years. While there is no doubt that this resort is beautiful, so are all the other resorts in the Maldives and at $3500 USD per night I highly recommend staying some place else. The people that work there are less than helpful to the point of rudeness, which is not what I... More

This was such a lovely property that I enjoyed every part of it. I thought Maldives will be boring but this place changed my thinking for sure. The food, staff etc. you name it all was perfect. Will certainly return.

And Maldives did not disappoint! This was my second visit to the Maldives, and it was still as magical as the first. W hotels are fresh & funky - and this resort has a nightclub. Reef sharks swimming around the fish restaurant at night, and picking your own fresh lobster to eat - amazing! This time around we had a... More

Can you get bored with huts over the water? Not if its on Fesdu Island, which strikes me more of a slice of the Mexican coast than one associated with the Maldives. Its truly eye-catching with white-washed walls beneath neatly cut thatch roofs. Billowy white spa tents with giant white sun-shades, inspire images of ocean dhow sails set against the... More
