Stayed in an over water villa - the room was just great. The views at this resort are magnificent. Crystal clear water with marine life right at your doorstep - reef sharks and other amazing creatures - make for an amazing snorkeling experience. You do not even need to scuba dive here as the variety of marine animals/ plants you...

Maldives is a beautiful country but the W Hotel makes it even more worth visiting. It is an amazingly built resort to the smallest details with the greatest staff providing hospitality I have not experienced before. My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary there. We spent 4 nights and 5 days at the W Maldives. When we landed in...

What you see in pictures doesn't even begin to describe the beauty of this place. The W Maldives truly captures the essence of the Maldives and the beauty of the Indian Ocean. The professionalism of the staff is on another level, the food is delicious, the restaurants have stunning views (although they should light up the water at night) And...
