Maldives has always been in my bucket list to visit. I cancelled once due to covid-19 and finally, I can make it thia time. As Titanium Elite, my partner and I stayed here for 5 nights. As it was a peak season, I was not upgraded to a better room. We arrived in Male around 9 AM and due to peak season and old airports, it takes us very long to get out around 11 AM. Once exit the airport, we was eacorted by W Maldives agent that helped us with the luggage storage, luggage to resort, and the seaplane. Then, we took 15 min ride to seaplane port. We went to the lounge to check-in for the hotel and take a picture. We then fly with seaplane and took us 30 minutes to get there. The view from the seaplane was awesome. Once arrive, we was welcomed by lots of people such as the guest experience manager, etc. Then, we was taken to a tour with buggy by Hassam and dropped us at the room with a room tour. The resort was beautiful and the room was also beautiful. The room was aging 15+ years but let me tell you that it was still good show that they took care of the room well. We stayed at the overwater villa with ocean view. The room that we got assigned a little bit far but still okay as the resort was walkable and we can also requested a buggy ride at anytime. The room was clean with a great view, nice bathroom, a private pool, and private decks. We also was given a bottle of wine, chocolate, and bowl of fruits. The service overall was great and communication thru whatsapp with quick response. Note: recommend to book restuarants for dinner once arrive for all nights stay as sometimes the early one was fully book. I actually had a hard time deciding to stay at St. Regis, Ritz Carlton, W Maldives, and JW Marriott but I was glad to choose W Maldives with its excellent service and great overall corals and ocean life. As Titanium elite, we had free breakfast included and the food choice was great and delicious at Kitchen. I would like to Thanks Siska, Retno, and Celine for the great services. Also, Marian, the one served the fruit and juices. She waa very kind and I had not eaten mangosteen for long time as it was hard to find in USA. They all remembered our names during our stay. Restaurant recommendation: Fire - great restaurant for having grill meat. The food was tasty. Thanks Siska and Sunny for the great service. We had fun while dine here. Fish - great restaurants for seafood. We booked "Ocean to the Table". It is an event we already assigned menu. Let me tell you that it was the best food we had while in Maldives. We had fish ceviche, lobster, fish, raw oyster, and yummy dessert. Thanks to Celine, Retno and Honda for the great service. Also, Celine was my junior who went to the same high school as me. Of all, the most amazing experience during our stay was when my surprise engagement proposal from my boyfriend. He worked with the hotel's staff to make it the best moments for us. Thanks to Jaja, Claire, and Chifan to make this amazing moments for us. I was picked up from the room with my eyes covered by Claire, the Food and Beverage Director and went to this place. (See the picture) where I was proposed. We watched sunset and having dinner here. Best moment of my life. Thanks Chifan to serve us and told us about the story of Maldives and the ocean life. Thank Jaja to arrange this with my boyfriend. Hopefully, to see you again in the future. Throughout our stay, we only have lots of compliments rather than complaints. Small complaints but all the excellent services hide all the complaints that we had. I like to thanks Nadeem to clean our room, Hassam to pick us and drop us at the airports, Robert to guide us for wakeboarding, Chuncky to welcome us, Kity, and Mark. There are some people that I forgot and Thanks to them all. During our stay, we saw lots of ocean life such as Sharks, sting rays, eagle rays, sea turtle, squid, octopus, and range of small fishes. I really recommend to stay here especially after the renovation at the end of April. We will for sure would love to go back here.

It would have been a 2-3 star review as the first 24 hours wasn’t quite what we were hoping and it’s safe to say that the rooms will benefit from the imminent closing and refurbishing. It is a 5 star review however as problems in life are inevitable and it is how you deal with them. I have to say Claire Gruel and Steven Schmid were impeccable in their professionalism and made sure our 9 days in W was truly fabulous, which it was. The rest of the staff were incredible and too many to mention. We shall look forward to returning again in the future.

Difficult to know where to start. So many things have been said in previous reviews so no point in repeating. From the moment you land it’s seamless. Aisha - who was outstanding and calming at the airport. Meeting us at arrivals and dealing with our luggage. Use of a business lounge whilst we waited for our sea plane. Overwater room - so private but backing on to a reef and open sea. See pictures. The island is tranquil, limited number of people, surrounded by a healthy reef. We swam numerous times with large turtles and sharks. Great bar - Sipp to watch the sunsets. Food options - plenty. Fish, Flame and Kitchen. All outstanding. Complimentary snorkel equipment. The excursions - so many to choose from. Manta and Nursery Sharks were a must. But the best thing - the people. It’s wrong to highlight individuals but; Clare - attentive throughout. Areen and John (Aquaman) in the restaurants - but also so many tips of what and what not to do. Vivian (The Boss) - brilliant at Fish. Retno - such a hard worker everywhere. Noor - so friendly every day. Abdullah (Hogan) - our daily cleaner, day and night. Just a brilliant job. Every time we came back to the room it was almost like New. Our feeling before the trip was “Once in a lifetime”. The resort is going through refurbishment this summer, and will be re-launched later in the year, and we may return to see what it’s like. Probably not for so long next time, but even on a nine day trip, the time just flew by. Tears will be shed as we leave today !!

Beautiful resort - house reef is amazing, service is excellent. Only thing we found lacking was the food - not many vegetarian options and while the breakfast was great, flavors of many of the dishes left a lot to be desired. (Especially given the price.) Would like to single out Areen for great dinner service and the women who take care of seating at breakfast! (Wish there were name tags!)
