Budget Maldives / W Retreat Maldives


Hotel rating:

W Retreat Maldives is situated on Fesdhoo island. A breathtaking seaplane ride will take you to the resort in 15-minute time. The seaplane takes you over the beautiful atoll, so get your camera ready as the views of the islands and underwater reefs are amazing.

Almost as soon as you’ve taken off, you’re landing at the W Retreat jetty, greeted with cold towels, cold drinks and smiling, welcoming staff. The luggage is loaded onto buggies and you’re whisked away to your villa with a little tour en route. The island itself is small and you can cross it in less than 5 minutes on foot.

It’s a perfect place for couples and honeymooners because the hotel has a policy which does not provide the accommodation for children under 13. The service of the resort is at the highest level, yet in a friendly and not pompous way. Attention to details is remarkable with personalized treats given all throughout the stay.

The buffet at the main restaurant has a great variety and excellent quality if you prefer going all inclusive. However it is always great to have a romantic meal at a nice restaurant.

Also dotted around the island treat-stations are a nice touch. There you can help yourself to ice, bottled water, soft drinks and ice-cream.

Beach and reef

The beach of the island is extremely clean with snow white sand. To enjoy the stunning island views book a beach bungalow and if you would like to dive straight from your villa take any of the overwater villas and you won’t regret. If you are staying in a beach bungalow ask for the nearest to the spa, this is where the house reef is closer to.  The island’s house reef is declared the best house reef in Maldives. The reef is rather close which is about 15-30 meters from the island. On your daily snorkel you could frequently encounter turtles, sharks, clown fish or so-called Nemo fish and other gorgeous inhabitants of the marine.


Enjoy the fabulous infinity pool with the WET bar or just simply relax listening to nice music. During the day the resort offers non-intrusive chill-out music in the communal areas. Which then in the evenings continues with the best DJs from all over the world, who would ensure that the soundtrack matches the breathtaking sunsets.

If you enjoy local shopping, here at W Store you may find fabulous local arts and crafts, designer jewelry, clothing, toiletries and beach accessories. The island also has its library room for those who keen on books, so it’s no way you get bored.

And if you enjoy the night life, you should definitely visit 15BELOW, which is literally a nightclub located 15 meters below the sea level. It is the only nightclub of such kind in Maldives which makes it a unique experience.


Just straight from your seafront villa you will already see a huge variety of fishes and corals. However the Diving center provides some exquisite opportunities like night diving with sharks on the local reef which is an amazing and scary fun. Some of the coral that lights up with the UV light is a very spectacular scene. Also some gorgeous marine creatures like nudibranch or red snapper come out at night mostly.

All of the staff will essentially do everything for you in terms of getting your gear together, changing the tanks for your BCD/regulator, and even give you a fresh scented towel after you get on the boat after every dive.
