In the luxury boutique hotels enigmatically called “W” the Starwood Group’s emphasises a confident, youthful brand—focused on fun, recreation and music. For us, the conscious service and attention to the smallest of details define the W Maldives’ experience.
The strong "W" brand permeates the hotel experience. This place has plenty of hip names and quirky ideas.
The chic over-water sunset bar is a perfect example of how W implements the fun-and-happening vibe. Probably our favourite place here.
Our smallest faves were kiosks scattered around the island—"Sweet Spots"—stocked with ice cream.
Overlooking the sea, the gorgeous water villas have a private pool with daybed and a beautiful gazebo, set up on a private deck.
Marketed as for couples only, W Maldives is perfect for anybody who appreciates a young vibe, good design and fashionable music. It's sexy, seriously indulgent and eminently luxurious: the Editor's Pick is well-deserved.
The resort has a small private island with a bed for overnight stay—just imagine combining it with a wedding!
