The natural setting here is truly awesome and if you like marine life you won't be disappointed. Eagle rays, turtles and sharks are all to be found on an easy 45 min circuit around the back of the island. The highlights - great dive staff and marine biologists (very competent, caring and knowledgeable) - excellent food, especially at Fish restaurant,...

Very Indian driven Service! Rules Rules Rules and mostly bent so the service staff does not have to work too hard. Western staff is more relaxed, accommodating and fun! The Sommelier at the Fish restaurant was the most fun! Out of 3 restaurants I have never seen all three open. Fire restaurant buffet is boring! For your seaplane departure tell...

Absolutely amazing place. Everything from beginning to end was fabulous. We were two people arriving by speedboat from another resort and was greeted by a dozen or so waving staff and even the managing director at the jetty. This is by far the most unforgettable and friendly welcome out of all the resorts we had visited. We stayed in a...

If your planning your honeymoon to the Maldives, don't look any further. The W retreat is heaven on earth.

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.
