We arrived back from our fourth visit to W Maldives last night. And I'm missing it already! There were more tears as we left! We chose to stay in the same room that we had stayed in on our other visits - room 112. It's the best bit of beach on the island, and only a few paces away from...

This was our third stay at the resort. I have always considered it the best for Maldives. However something is going worse. The service is still very good but not perfect as it used to be.

It can be hard to combine luxury and fun, and to do it well. The W Maldives does it. The promise to provide whatever, whenever, wherever, and they do it. And more. Really loved our stay. Gorgeous, sexy rooms too!
