General: We had an amazing experience at the W! We were treated like royalty and were wow'ed by the room, hotel, restaurants, activities, island and, most importantly, the...

Words truly can't describe how wonderful this resort is. My boyfriend and I spent 8 nights here in January/February 2017. We split our time between an ocean villa and a overwater ocean facing bungalow. While we liked the beach villa, our preference was the overwater bungalow due to access to less mosquitos (though there weren't many on the beach either)....

This is our 5th time to Maldives always a different island. If you like small and cosy- W Maldives is for you. Small island with only about 50 villas. Walk around the island is approximately 20mins. Snorkeling around the island - one of the best. Food options: only 2 Restaurent open at night. Abit limited but you have in room...

We tried out the W Maldives for only three nights because the place is expensive and we hadn't been there before and didn't want to commit for a week or longer. We started to regret our decision after about 15 minutes and were mildly suicidal by the time we had to leave. This place is wonderful and we travel 250...

Perfect stay, amazing staff, very cool designer rooms. Service outstanding. Breakfast excellence. Sometimes you hear music in your room from the pool party or residence DJ’s.

Our 4th time at this resort since 2009. I still believe it is one of the finest and best situated resorts in the Maldives. Superb snorkelling grounds and the recent refurbished "retreats", as they call the bungalows, make for a very relaxing setup. The staff however is lacking the little things W is known and famous for. It used to...
