Every interaction with any staff member was a real delight - they are polite and hospitable- well done to the training culture... More

Did not even need to dive or get our snorkels on, Just did that by sitting at our balcony and looking out. MUST have the bbq, super yummy in the convenience of your room. For... 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

We've visited the Maldives many times and tried 4 hotels. Bottom line, The W is without a shadow of a doubt the best and that is why we are now back for our 4th stay here. Why? Because it's pretty, well thought out, but mainly it's the staff and their wonderful smiles, friendly approach and relaxed attitude. The service is... More
