Wow..for starters. I mean this place is beautiful, exactly the way it is pictured on the website is exactly how it looks in person, if not better. My husband and I visited the gorgeous W Hotel Spa and Retreat for our honeymoon, from 8/24/08 -9/4/08. From start to finish it was amazing. We had a warm welcome in Male after... More

Went with my huband for 6 nights while the grandparents watched the kids. WOW - absolutely amazing hotel. All the staff so friendly but not in your face. Left us alone just the right amount. Beach Bungalow gorgeous, very secluded and private. Just perfect - would recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet get away. The Dive centre DownUnder was... More

Having read a few reviews on here about the W Retreat we were not sure what to expect as some people did not seem to think it lived up to its hype and cost! I will start by saying it is not a cheap place to stay and you whould rightly expect very high standards! I that regard we have... More

There are nicer resorts closer to the airport/short boat ride away. This resort is not worth the extra flight. Not as "funky" as it looks in photos. Try Anantara, Soneva Gili or Naladhu. Rooms more special and service fantastic. W staff just don't care. Wasn't impressed at all.

I travel to Maldives frequently (almost monthly) on business and have stayed in variety of resorts so rather than mentioning the obvious facts about Maldives Im going to discuss the W in detail.

Well where do we start? This place is truly heaven on earth. It is the only place we have visited that actually reflects what the brochures try to sell. From the crystal blue waters to the state of the art rooms this resort must be seen to be believed! It all starts from the moment you get off the plane... More
