I visited W Maldives with my husband as his birthday present. Right from reservation to our arrival at male International Airport, we were treated to the best of services. Maldivian resorts are known for their extremely romantic over water villas. But what truly sets W apart, is how they blend modern architecture with romantic touches seamlessly. Being a vegetarian, I... More

Never have I seen such clear waters and bright stars in my life. When I was there, I stayed in a water bungalow. It is a bit of a walk from the actual Island itself but very much worth it. Plus, there were ice cream stations on the way. We had our own private pool, lounging sofas, and direct access... More
