    • Amazing Trip

      I can’t say enough about the team and experience at W Maldives. Each day was an amazing adventure.
      Logistics went smoothly even with the transfer from the seaplane to the speedboat to ensure I arrived as early as possible. The team welcomed me with a glass of champagne and whisked me straight to Room 233 (Ocean side).
      The room was so comfortable and the team welcomed me with a Welcome to W message on the bed hand made from leaves, sweet treats, Acqua Panna and a bottle of Montes’ Kaiken. I have no idea how they knew I was a Montes fan!
      The deck was spectacular and there were so many residents on the reef. It was so easy to spot the school of surgeon fish, the spectacular eagle ray and even a shark right from the deck. I saw 3 sharks, a turtle and 3 whale sharks.
      The most amazing scene was right along the shore. If you arrive at sunrise, you will be amused by the sharks and eels hunting in shallow waters past the arrival jetty. The super cool birds hover to catch the fish escaping the hunt. The water is so clear that you can also catch the baby sharks wandering around the island during the day.
      As a solo traveler, I found the property bustling with activities with plenty of space to chill. Between snorkeling, fishing, parasailing and hanging in my pool, I had to remind myself to nap! I met the coolest people and admired the fashion of my fellow guests. I highly recommend this resort for solo travel. It is paradise plus one of the best teams in the entire Marriott portfolio.

      We had the pleasure of staying at the JW Maldives for 5 magical nights. Our lifelong dream vacation staying in a Overwater Villa finally came true. 
      We were so well looked after – there were only 7 other couples so the ratio of staff to guests made for incredible service.
      Our villa had a beautiful sunset view opening on the ocean. You can literally cannon ball off the deck into the water beneath, it doesn’t get much cooler than that.
      We kayaked and jet ski’d for our activities and they were tons of fun. However for the price and duration, 30 minutes would have been plenty of time on the jet ski.
      We used the top notch gym faculty every day and Diana always made sure we welcomed and looked after during our workouts.
      It was quite honestly the best resort experience we have ever had and would without question recommend this resort to anyone looking for an unforgettable Maldives experience.
