I am not one to write reviews but I found it absolutely necessary to come here and speak about the amazing hospitality at W Maldives. This is all thanks to their amazing team leader Irufaan who helped me organize a surprise staycation for my parents at the hotel as they were celebrating their 30th anniversary. He setup the room so beautifully and constantly ensured that their stay was above and beyond. He was in touch with me during their entire stay and kept liaising with me to ensure that my parents stay was beyond perfect. We’ve travelled to so many places around the world and stayed at various luxurious hotels across the world but I don’t think I’ve ever heard my parents speak so highly of a hotel and their service as much as they did about W Maldives! The team is just beyond amazing! Thank you so much for making my parents stay so memorable and also upgrading their room complimentarily! I look forward to visiting once myself!

From the Welcoming staff to the picturesque island to the gorgeous overwater villas, everything exceeded our expectations. Though we traveled during Covid-19, the staff was welcoming and went above and beyond to make us feel safe. The food was outstanding. We especially enjoyed the breakfast order on demand. We had a maldivian feast on the beach one of the nights and it was unbelievable. The villa was more spacious than it looks online. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation. Every detail was attended to. Don't wait! Book the W Maldives now. They won't disappoint. Most memorable, relaxing and beautiful vacation I have ever been on.

We visited in November 2020 for my birthday! It did not disappoint. The staff were very friendly ! We received a welcome glass of bubbly and also a fresh coconut was waiting for us along with some chocolates in the room. This resort has amazing marine life and coral around the resort. The staff at the water sports store will recommend the best places to snorkel. You can rent the snorkel gear for free also. They offer some other good activities! We tried the glass bottom kayak (extra charge). It was fun but we saw more when snorkeling. It is also free to rent paddle boards at anytime. The room was amazing with a glass floor to see under your villa. We had a private pool and an over water hammock. On our last night, Shareef decorated our room with balloons, cake and a card to celebrate my birthday. It was such a special surprise when we returned from dinner. We are very thankful to Chunky and his team for this special surprise. This resort offers a full timetable of activities which are free to join. We did sunset yoga on the beach with Raj and it was really an amazing experience. We would definitely recommend. Overall we had an amazing stay at the W. The vibe is very nice and relaxing which a real young and modern atmosphere. We would love to return one day!

I've never written a review but the hospitality of W Maldives forced me to. The staff made our stay exceptionally extraordinary and specially Mr Arun (the mixologist) made our days superb by shaking up some unique cocktails. In W, comfort, luxury and hospitality at every step blends into one. Unforgettable stay!

We spent 7 days at the W over the NYE period. We had booked two rooms, one was an overwater villa on the lagoon and the other a beach villa. We could not thank the staff more, the whole stay was well beyond our expectations. A few summary points that try to capture the best aspects of our stay: * Prior to our trip we were well briefed on all the information and requirements in regards to COVID and the requirements on the island. The whole travel process was extremely smooth and at all stages we felt very comfortable * Upon arrival we were upgraded to a fantastic villa, very similar to the room we had in our previous stay. The service and welcome was very personalised with all of the team going out of their way to welcome us back * Service was fantastic with a broad range of dining options (Kitchen, Fire, Fish, Sip) and activities (snorkeling, water sports, diving etc.) * NYE event in particular was outstanding, it included a cocktail reception, an incredible buffet dinner on the beach, and a broad range of music and entertainment to welcome in the new year * The infrastructure on the island has been fully adapted to manage for COVID e.g. all information including menus are integrated into a central platform available via QR codes * House reef was amazing, with a stunning array of marine life very close to the island * Spa was very relaxing and is very clean and safe with the necessary COVID precautions * If you do require a COVID test prior to departure this is very easily arranged on the island. The whole team were amazing...Anuj, Chunky, Shaheem, Saish, Amin, Greg, DJ Jennifer, Kay, Ika, Sherif... and the list goes on, it was truly a team effort to make our stay so memorable and we look forward to being back soon!
