If your planning your honeymoon to the Maldives, don't look any further. The W retreat is heaven on earth. You are treated like royalty from the moment you arrive at the airport and they escort you to their private lounge where you wait for your waterplane. The W has a very high-end personal approach and they look after the smallest...

The W stands for whatever, whenever. And they really do live up to this mantra. You do pay, and pay a lot, but if you really want value for your indulgence then this is the place. I have been a couple of years before and it was really good, seemingly better now, and interestingly they have a new lady there...

We spent 4 nights at this property in July. We were very keen to do some snorkelling and also wanted to be in an over water lagoon. The W did not disappoint. Our room was large, very comfortable in and out door areas and very private. We were keen to be able to snorkel straight off our deck which we...

This hotel is for sure one of the best (if not the best) from what we have seen around the world so far. From the first moment when they meet you at the airport and accompany to the lounge, to the check in, when the whole team of staff of the W is coming to greet you, you understand that...

After reading reviews on tripadvisor and a recent stay at the W hotel in Bali, I had mixed feelings about staying here. I expected the resort to be big, impersonal with a slightly corporate feeling to it. We stayed for a week in October and were very surprised that it was actually the opposite. The resort is very personal, staff...

My wife and I recently stayed at the W Retreat in the Maldives on our honeymoon after having been recommended it by a friend.

When I think of the W, my immediate thought is of frustration; which given their slogan would seem impossible! Let me start however with the positives. The level of service was great and the facilities available are first class with some nice touches (like the table tennis table in the pool or the sweet stations dotted around the resort). The...
