We had a wonderful, and a valvular time, the level is Service is unmatched as well for the quality of services that is amazing at least to say. Our island advisor was Tatiana, and she took care of us in a manner that demonstrated what WA means. The returants at WA are amazing. Tasting table has a generous amount of amazing servings, flow is amazing with its healthy food, LiLong is impressive, Terra is worthy of a three miclan star restaurant under the artisan craftsmanship of chief Burak, and The Lodge has a fantastic contemporary dishes. The highlight of our trip to WA was terra and it amazing experience also I highly recommend trying the tea selection at LiLong and speaking to Long-Pay, an authentic tea guru, about picking up some tea selection to take back home. My wife and I have decided on having our run away vacation always with WA Maldives.

I normally don't write reviews, but this property deserves the effort. There are many positive things to say about the Waldorf Astoria Maldives. We've stayed at other Waldorfs as well as other Maldive properties, and the level of customer service at this particular property is superior and welcoming. First, the yacht ride to the island was perfect, our yacht concierge Sam made us feel right at home. She set the tone for the rest of our stay with her wonderful and friendly service. Our personal concierge Saddam was also fantastic, ensuring we got reservations to all the restaurants we wished and checking on us everyday at breakfast. The staff at the restaurants were all very kind and fun as well! They made us the best meals. Our compliments to the talented Culinary Director VJ and his colleagues of amazing chefs, Sam, Hayat and Addi and our servers Bilhy, Shazeel and Husynu, all whom took great care of us. It makes a huge difference to the quality of our vacation when the staff are genuinely kind and welcoming, taking time to remember our names and likes and chatting with us. It goes without saying that the property and rooms are beautiful. We loved the traditional thatched roof of our villa and the high ceilings. I spent everyday solo snorkeling on our reef just off our infinity pool. There is an abundance of large, vibrant and colorful marine life just 20 meters where the reef drops deep into the ocean beyond. It was such a thrill to be able to wake up and jump into the warm Laccadive Sea and swim with large parrot fish and other creatures every morning. Thank you Etienne Delançon for managing such a "fantastique" team. We really enjoyed everything about our stay, the privacy, the food, the well appointed villa and location and the amazing and warm staff. We hope to return soon.

The Maldives is awesome almost no matter where you go, but the Waldorf provides service and rooms like no other. We were waited on like a VIP celebrity. Anything and everything was possible. We travel the world, and this resorts service far exceeded any other place we have been. The rooms are to die for. We had a room overwater. It was huge and had every amenity. The staff is super friendly as well. We had our own personal butler that took care of everything. I just wish it wasn't 23 hours away, or we would be there more often.

Astounding experience …. this is just an amazing place to share our best memories in Maldives Beautiful resort perhaps the best resort moment from luxury yatch to grand arrival was breath taking Variety of restaurant with style classification type kind taste options with great food and service was top, Our butler did a good job have going for one to our activity water park was closed through out our stay our kids could not experience and this was disappointed for our kids Staff were great and friendly but resort manager seems to be very baised and feel he is racist did not even reached us through out our stay I say this is because even the staff and f&b incharge at the beach bar that we interacted expressed the same as he is with local staff and with his management team. But we will definitely come back to this favourite place of my kids and wife to experience this variety of restaurants beautiful villa and Waldorf for the great facility they have in Maldives

We had great expectations of this resort and were not disappointed! Everything was perfect. Our reef villa was extremely spacious and always kept impeccably clean - kudos to the housekeeping staff. Little details like using glass bottles and cloth napkins to minimize waste did not go unnoticed. It heartens us to see the area thriving with wildlife. During our short stay, we were lucky to spot bats, herons, dolphins and seabirds from the patio of our villa. From the beach club in ankle deep water we caught glimpses of baby sharks, jellyfish and stingrays. All these did not make our snorkeling trips any less exciting as we came up close and personal with parrotfish, schools of fusilier & butterfly fish, unicorn fish, blue tang and even a nurse shark! No holiday is complete without delicious gourmet and every meal left an impression - The breakfast buffet was a mind boggling affair with limitless options; love the grilled seafood from Yasmeen. We even tasted the Red snapper we caught during our very successful fishing trip! Reservation at The Ledge is a must - the peri peri chicken is to die for! Our stay was made perfect by our personal concierge Adhikko - always accessible and very responsive and made sure our request no matter how small was attended to. Special thanks to Makuda & Rasheed from the Tasting Table who entertained us with stories and remembered our preferences, Lauda the in house marine biologist who took such good care of us during our snorkeling trip with dolphins, the team at the beach activities club who is ever obliging with our requests for canoes, SUP and paddle boats. An awesome post pandemic holiday - we will be back!

First visited Ithaafushi in August 2020, recently returned in June 2022, and the property has blossomed. Still the best service, largest villas in Maldives, ever-expanding variety of restaurants and cuisines (Zuma soon!), most enjoyable happy-hours with live music, fantastic snorkeling, relaxing spa and new hydrotherapy pool, and the most luxurious and convenient yacht transfer from Male. Special thanks to Marco, Trevor, Hazuki, Muzah, Chef Baba, Guyan, Roger, Waheed, Mukada, Sale, Elli, Juno, and the entire team. Look forward to returning again!
