Our seaplane flight was delayed and we were all shuttled to the HulHule for a complimentary lunch. The lounge facilities at the Seaplane port were first class. They had WIFI and a good variety of snacks and drinks. The flight was full and we took a seat in the back to enable us to get amazing photos of atolls on...

Going to start with negative things first: 1. Be prepared to wait THREE HOURS at the Male airport for the seaplane as the hotel wants the plane to be full and will wait for other guests to arrive. Horrible start after having flown all the way to Male. 2. Service: A few staff are friendly and helpful but most are...

Hello and thank you for sharing your W experience. It's disappointed to read that we did not meet your expectations in all areas. Unfortunately, flights are not operated by the hotel but MAT (Maldivian Air Taxi), and we are not able to control the flights’ schedule. While waiting for your seaplane, I hope you got to enjoy our private lounge...

So, I'm still here, we have a week left but I thought I'd deliver a half-time review. 5 stars awarded, the hard work's been done, that all important first impression has been made, don't let me down.

This was our first trip to the Maldives. It was a dreamy experience - gazing at the ocean, snorkeling in the tropical “fish tank” beneath our over-water villa, moon-bathing on the circular daybed on starry nights (we saw meteor too)… the only regret is leaving. The resort is beautiful and serene, to say the least. The surrounding is so peaceful...

This is our honeymoon and we had always dreamed of coming to Maldives for our honeymoon.
