Honeymoon at W Retreat and Spa

Away Spa Exterior at W Retreat and Spa Maldives

Amazing doesn’t do this resort justice. It is by far the most spectacular place we have ever visited (and we have been to some pretty good hotels). From the moment you land in Male everything is taken care of. The staff are exceptional… nothing is too much trouble. Its paradise – perfect – 10/10! We went to W Retreat Maldives for our honeymoon and yes it’s a bit costly but so worth it. We’ve been back a month but we’re already planning our next visit. There’s nowhere else we’d rather stay because nothing will compare our honeymoon stay at this resort to anything.

We stayed a beach bungalow for 4 nights and then moved to an over water bungalow for 3 nights. I know everyone just loves staying at water villas but on a more serious note, don’t dismiss the beach villas. We loved having to walk out of our room directly to the beach. We enjoyed having to lie in the beach and look at the stars every night. It was just pure bliss.

Our stay at the water villa was also fun. We had direct access to the ocean and we could like there all afternoon. W Retreat Maldives is a very lively place as there was plenty of things to do here.

The snorkeling is a truly special experience. The house reef is fantastic, and they have everything to hire (for free) so you don’t need to take anything with you (although we did pack beach shoes which did come in handy as I didn’t get on with the flippers). We saw turtles, sharks as well as a huge variety of fish. Make sure you take some kind of underwater camera!

As for the food, we didn’t have one bad meal here – the food here is just amazing and also they have a wide variety of cuisines to cater to all tastes. It was a bit costly but totally worth it.

We were so sad to leave when it was time to go home. It really felt like we’d been in paradise for a week.

We totally loved our honeymoon in W Retreat and Spa Maldives
