W Spa and Retreat Maldives - just breakfast or half board?

My husband and I will be traveling to the W Maldives in May. I'm currently booked for just breakfast only, but I wonder if it will be worthwhile to go for half board which includes dinner? It will cost me USD448 extra to upgrade to half board for 4 nights. Thanks!

Hi, it's not a resort that's discussed on here often.

So if I was you, I would email the resort and ask for the menus with prices. Ask what the half board includes ie can you eat in any restaurant and what are the restrictions.

Then compare,,what are you likely to have for dinner versus the half board option, do the math and make your decision.

Is the 448 for one person or two?

Wow, that seems quite expensive to me, which would indicate the food is expensive. Email the resort and ask for the menus etc as per previous post. If you tend not to have three course meals, you might find it cheaper to simply pay for what you order.

We went there a couple of years ago, and based on our experience then I would definitely go bed and breakfast. There were a lot cheaper options than half board cost eating wellt! We particularly enjoyed room service one night, bargain same price as restaurant and there are cheaper options!!

But Froggy is spot on get a copy of current menu.
