W Retreat

The W Retreat Maldives is an adult’s 5-star resort, which oozes fun and vibrancy within the heart of the Maldives. 

From the Techno Gym with top of the range fitness equipment or a true opportunity to unwind at the AWAY spa, there is nothing that the W Retreat can’t offer. 

Privacy is paramount too – as guests can enjoy their own plunge pool, sundeck, and beach in various different villa accommodations.
