W Retreat & Spa - Maldives

At a glance

  • Ultra-chic designer facilities and barefoot luxury
  • All pool retreats
  • Excellent house reef

This gorgeous contemporary W Retreat is an exclusive playground for grown-ups.

Quirky and cool, W Maldives does understated elegance to perfection. ‘Whatever/whenever’ is the mantra here, and with the wonderful service and little extras such as help-yourself ‘sweet spots’ dotted around the island with free ice-cream, soft drinks and sun cream, you’ll really believe it.

Contemporary facilities include the bistro-with-a-twist restaurant, Kitchen, the specialty restaurant, Fish, and Fire – a relaxed barbecue station under the palm trees. Lounge on the day-bed style sofas at Sip, sampling the mixologist’s recommended signature cocktails and soaking up the ocean views, before continuing your night at 15 Below – an underground nightclub with in-house DJs and 90 varieties of vodka. If you know your watersports, make the most of the free equipment including snorkel masks and fins, kayaks, catamarans and windsurfers. The windsurfing is particularly good. Snorkelling can be done straight from the shore on the island’s house reef – the best spots can be found around the spa area.

Traditional Maldivian exteriors house deliciously elegant interiors. Each of the retreats has a private plunge pool, huge circular daybed and barbecue for private dining, plus a wine fridge, ‘munchie box’ and high-spec gadgets including outdoor speakers. Beach Oasis retreats are directly on the beach, set over two storeys, while overwater accommodation offers ocean or lagoon views. At the top end, the two bedroom Ocean Haven is designed to be the ultimate getaway.
