Surrounded by blue sea and offering a choice of exquisite white sand beaches and a tranquility and sense of privacy, this exquisite resort is an ideal location for a luxurious getaway.

There’s also a library and an activities/games room.
Everything is at your disposal at W Maldives, including exploring the stunning island and enjoying its white sand beaches and beautiful lagoons at leisure. Imagine the luxury of knowing that the island is all yours for a week? Yes, that’s exclusive use of every single facility on the island, a private playground just for you and your guests. Like a mega house party for with all the trimmings in one of the most magical locations on earth.
Every guest will enjoy a private escape in the plush villas, each with its own private plunge pool and sundeck, not to mention a choice of six gourmet restaurants and lounge bars, including an underground nightclub called 15BELOW, situated 15 steps below the surface of the island and the overwater.
