This resort is a hidden gem and we're so glad to have chosen the W in the Maldives. Definitely the best decision ever. It's a relatively small property with the island secluded and reachable only by seaplane. This means that you will find this resort quiet, uninterrupted, and all to yourself on most occasions. Across the week, we rarely bumped... More

The resort is located on a tiny island called Fesdhoo in the North Ari Atoll, and you can get here only via sea plane, or boat. It's not as crowded as the other resorts nearer to Male. The resort is pretty much self-contained, and you're "marooned" on the island, which may be a good thing if you want to escape... More

This is a overdued review but I truly want to give W a 5 stars rating. I suggest people not to go Maldives too early at their traveler age just because you probably set your standards too high:) W Hotel is amazing. Both beach front and ocean front villas are beautiful, relaxing and flawless. I also enjoyed so much with... More

The resort is incredibly beautiful perched on a remote island with one of the most active and colourful house reefs surrounding the resort. The meals were sensational and so many water activities to choose from that we did not get a chance to explore them in the 3 days we visited. All the more reason to visit again! Interestingly I...
