LET IT GLOW AT YOUR LUXURY PLAYGROUND – W MALDIVES

W Maldives is a luxury private island resort in a wonderland of white sand beaches, turquoise lagoons and breathtaking house coral reefs. Providing a new cutting edge and contemporary lifestyle experience for your exclusive escape 24/7, above and below the ocean.

The 5-star resort features 77 luxurious private escapes – each with its own plunge pool and sundeck. Six gourmet restaurants and lounge bars aesthetically located across the island inviting you in for the ultimate indulgence.

Amplify your experience in paradise by experiencing the crystal blue ocean and exploring the island’s private reef, declared the best house reef in the Maldives. Bask in the sun on the escape’s beaches, partake in adrenaline-filled water sports, or discover true pampering with our overwater AWAY® Spa.

Announcement: AWAY® Spa with its four treatment rooms will be closed from November 1, 2017 to December 15, 2017 for a complete makeover. It will be restyled to create an amped up atmosphere while staying true to the bold and signature aesthetic for which W Hotels are known. During renovation all spa treatments will be held at an alternative relaxing location. 

We are also excited to announce the rejuvenation of its four suites. Two “WOW Ocean Escape” suites will be under makeover from mid-October 2017 until mid-December 2017. Our other two suites “WOW Ocean Escape” and “Extreme WOW Ocean Haven” will go under a complete restyling from March 1, 2018 and are scheduled for reopening in June 2018.

Just returned home from a stay here, and it exceeded our expectations in many ways. The welcome team created a WOW experience upon our seaplane arrival with the energetic vibe and ice cold cocktails. We were greeted by the GM himself, and I was pleasantly surprised to be told that my room had been upgraded to the ocean-facing over-water villa through my American Express Fine Hotels and Resorts Privileges! Encountered amazing staff such as the W talent Toh and insider Mathew, as well as Latheef and Erik from F&B. I have previously read other reviews about irregular room service, but my experience was otherwise; we received twice daily room service from the diligent Ahmed. We would also find SPG treats delivered to our room from time to time (champagne, brownies, cocktails). Now for the not-so-pleasant (and I'm probably being a bit picky on some of these issues): - We originally scheduled a 30-Mom complimentary photo taking session on the day of our departure, as we were told by the photographer on duty that they would have enough time to complete the job given our seaplane departure time. We were however informed only 30min prior to our scheduled slot that they were suddenly unable to accommodate us unless we paid a $200+ express fee. This wasn't told to us earlier, and frankly left me rather peeved as we had planned our last day's schedule around the photography session. The staff who informed me also sounded unapologetic, and claimed that he had tried to contact me earlier during my stay but I was not in my room. I found that excuse unacceptable, given that they could have easily left a message with the concierge. Rather disappointing way to end the stay. - After the amazing welcome, the check-out process was rather underwhelming in comparison. We were shipped off as soon as the seaplane arrived with no chance to say our good byes to many of the amazing staff. The W lounge at the seaplane terminal was also not available for the departing guests' use (unless we were willing to pay extra for it), and my Wife and I ended up having to roam around at the airport for a good 7-8 hours waiting for our late flight. This made the entire check out experience feel a tad transactional. But I must stress that I wasn't expecting anything extra (they after all run a business!), and it is only when contrasted with the rest of the excellent service that this felt like a blip. - Food, drinks and spa were of decent quality, but very pricey even for this standard. I understand that everything on the island has to be imported, but it's hard not to compare the food prices to the many Michelin starred restaurants that I've dined at which offered much better quality at lower price points. - Not all the bars and restaurants were open every day, and it would have been useful if they gave us the schedules ahead of time so that we can plan our stay around them. For instance, I had heard much about the 15 below bar and wanted to visit it at least once during my stay. Unfortunately, I found out only later that it was only open on the first night of our arrival, when my Wife and I decided to give it a miss as we were suffering from a bit of jet lag. If we knew earlier that it was the only night that we could visit the bar, we would have been more than willing to sacrifice a couple hours of sleep :p - I would personally prefer the ambient music that's played in the hotel premises to be a little louder to give it a more lively vibe, but I figure others may not feel the same. These niggles do not change the fact that it had otherwise been an amazing stay at the resort. I'm not usually one who will visit the same resort twice, but I may likely just make an exception for this!!
