Ever since Starwood Hotels created the ‘W Hotels' brand in 1998, the name has been synonymous with style, elegance, and trendiness. The W Retreat and Spa Maldives fits perfectly into that ethos as one of the finest and most modern luxury resorts in the Maldives. With 78 rooms, 49 of which are water villas, the private-island complex has a huge array of dining and activity possibilities for a hotel this size.

The resort is extremely popular with honeymoon couples who appreciate a newer sense of style and all the fine amenities available in each villa. The water villas are huge, each coming with its own plunge pool on the sundeck, plus custom furniture to help lounge in sheer comfort. There's a wide range of water sports and activities available, plus 6 different restaurants and lounges, but with rooms this amazing and luxurious it might be hard to leave them, so it's fortunate that in-villa dining is always available.

Getting there


Reviews of the W Retreat And Spa Maldives could not be more positive as nearly every previous guest gushes endlessly about the entire experience. The location, the villas, the service, and the food all get extremely high marks from nearly every reviewer.


The one negative that a few point out is the price, but that is going to happen at a deluxe 5-star resort like this. Those who appreciate the W Hotel Group’s sense of style and luxury should love this place, provided they can afford it.
