We have just returned from a 2 week stay at the W Retreat & Spa. We have been to the Maldives before, staying at Rangali when it was the Hilton 2 years ago in a Deluxe Beach Villa and we were worried that other hotels would not compare favourably as we loved our stay there. On arrival at Male we... More

The W is a fantastic place. Almost perfect. The location is as great as you would expect in the Maldives, the resort is as great and stylish as you would expect from a W. The perfect combination. We stayed at a beach oasis which I think is the better choice unless you are an absolute water freak. The beach oasis... More

The lovely maldives always help. The W is new and well furnished. The facilities are excellent. The food was very good although many times the fruit has little taste as they are flown in from the far east. The sap was very good too with a not very exciting but good treatmetn menu. The children loved the hotel to bits!!!!!Overall... More

I am a bit of a perfectionist so i always find something that is not quite right, however everything about this hotel was fantastic. Attention to detail very good. The rooms are exactly like the pictures in the brochures. We... More

Just back from the W having spent 7 nights there with my girlfriend. We arrived pretty knackered after the long journey but once we had been greeted with a cold wet towel and a cocktail as we stepped off the seaplane onto the W deck by the well dressed and very pleasant 'welcoming commitee' we started to immediatley relax and...

An amazing three days. We have always wanted to see the Maldives, but given vicinity to New York, it took us a while to make it happen. We have been to a number of beautiful resorts around the world, but the locale, facilities and service here are outstanding. Some things that made it special: 1. We had a beach resort... More

Stayed at the W for the last part of our honeymoon in December, it was fantastic (although a little wet - don't let them fool you that December is high season!). It's the W's first foray into spas and it works well, very relaxed but a little bit cool (almost a bit too cool at times!). There's chilled music being... More
