 W Retreat & Spa Maldives

If you've ever fantasized about owning your own private island, W Retreat & Spa Maldives is your dream come true. White sand, turquoise waters, and luxurious seclusion: they're all yours.

Take the 10-minute trip to uninhabited Fesdu Island, and work on your Robinson Crusoe impression.

From Malé, the capital of the Maldives, you must fly in a sea plane to reach tiny Fesdu Island. You're lucky there's no bridge, since besides the guests and staff of Starwood's W Retreat & Spa, this pretty Indian Ocean island is uninhabited. But make no mistake: retreating to this tropical paradise is far from roughing it. Your bi-level beachfront accommodation roosts on soft sand or juts out over warm water, and includes plush amenities such as private plunge pools, sundecks, and outdoor rainforest showers.

While you're relaxing at the W Retreat & Spa, there are plenty of opportunities for aquatic adventure-seekers. Indulge your inner water-baby with kite surfing, water skiing, windsurfing, and wakeboarding. If you want to take it easy, try out some hand-line fishing - and take home that big catch to your own private barbecue.

    Considering a 4th visit

  • We're wrapping up our 5th anniversary trip to Bora Bora, where we are staying at the St. Regis, and having been to the W Maldives three times before (March 07, 08, and 09--we didn't stay in Sept 2010 but the drop down menu didn't have any previous dates), we're looking forward to going to the Maldives again. We like the intimacy of the atoll, and the staff knew our names and we were able to get to know them a bit as well. The snorkeling is much better in the Maldives as well (I still remember the poor turtle with the damaged flipper). The only concern I have about going back to the W is, the last time we were there, I remember a lot of seaweed or other vegetation in the water outside our beach villa. I don't remember it from the first two times and wonder if the problem's only gotten worse. * Stayed September 2010, traveled as a couple

  • Amazing

  • We stayed 2 weeks in July 2010. Truly a great experience, 1 week in the Beach oasis, 1 week in the Ocean Oasis. We preferred the Beach Oasis - it's more spacious, has a lot of charm, very luxurious! Service at the hotel is more than perfect! Everybody is very kind Sweet spot is addicting! Fire restaurant is great and not too expensive, for Maldivian standards. House reef is fantastic. Great memories. Thanks everybody at W!
