My husband and I visited W in m Nov 2021 to celebrate our 10th anniversary however destiny had its own special plan. I got badly injured the very next morning and since that moment the entire staff was on their feet leaving no scope for any kind delay in getting medical assistance for me. They immediately arranged for a sea plane from neighbouring resort so I could reach the City hospital asap. I have No words to thank the Manager, Mr. chunky, Mr. Adam, Mr. Harpal- the chef and everyone who helped me through the entire process of medical emergency. Had it not been for their prompt actions and support I may not have reached back home safely. Our trip is not yet over and I am desperately waiting to recover and revisit W Maldives asap. These guys have been Angels in disguise ❤

While the hotel may be situated in paradise the customer service is anything but pleasant. I reached out to Idu (the GM) and him team in August and subsequently sent follow up mails every few days. It is now 3 months later I still have had no response. After finally managing to get hold of Rivero the area Vice President I thought the problem would finally be resolved. To my horror I was better off with no response from Idu. She was aggressive, uniformed and rude. No guest should ever have to put up with this treatment from 1 star hotel let alone a 5 super luxurious hotel. At this price point you have many far superior options where you will be treated as a guest and not as someone’s meal ticket. Bad or should I say non existent customer service can even turn the Maldives into a nightmare.

We were welcomed by waving staff on the dock as we arrived by seaplane. A cold glass of cava or beer was in hand within seconds of being off the plane. Got the walk through and then buggy tour on our way to our over water bungalow. It did not disappoint... it was my husband's birthday when we arrived so the room ways decorated with a cake and bote of cava for us along with the standard welcome treats. The treats kept coming! Little sweets dropped for Halloween, Dwali (also henna tattoos for Dwali) . Halfway through our stay we switched to a beach house room...if you can...DO IT. The upstairs bed swing and snorkelling at your back door should not be missed. Sip bar at sunset is a must. And load up on the included mimosa and aperol spritz at breakfast! The staff was exceptional (shout out to Ting) and try the spicy tuna salad with coconut...it's on the Kitchen dinner menu but they will really get you "whatever, whenever". All you have to do is ask!

Staff, service, views, food are all amazing. Special thanks to Chipu, Arun, and Arash — who made our stay doubly special. There is a culture of joy and authenticity that stems from the GM and management. Everyone we came across was genuinely kind, light hearted, and attentive. All without the pretense, which we absolutely loved. We were so well taken care of and wish we could stay longer! Thank you to all the staff at W Maldives for an unforgettable experience!

To the friendliest, warmest, most welcoming staff ever....THANK YOU!! Thank you for making my honeymoon the most amazing experience possible. Beyond the beauty of the island, the comfort of the rooms, and the flavor of the food, it was the level of service provided by the team that really puts the W Maldives in a league of its own. Nifraz, Yati, Areen, Arun, Jessica, Singh, Yani, Ting and the countless others always had smiles on their faces while taking care of every detail needed to ensure an exceptional experience. I am forever grateful.
