The Maldives is renowned as a destination for getting off-grid. W Maldives is a luxurious private island resort situated in North Ari Atoll. It takes 1.5-hour speed boat ride. 


W Retreat & Spa – Maldives is home to 78 relaxing retreats, each offering a perfect balance of contemporary comfort and island style. All retreats come equipped with a state-of-the-art BOSE Sound System, a 42” plasma television, a private plunge pool and a roomy outdoor space with sun loungers and barbecue space. All you have to do is choose a category! For land-lovers, the Wonderful Beach Oasis retreats are the perfect choice, offering chic design and absolute privacy. The overwater retreats Spectacular Ocean Oasis and Fabulous Lagoon Oasis even allow guests to dive straight into the warm waters of the Indian Ocean from the comfort of their own terrace and offer a perfect panorama of the ocean landscape. The WOW Ocean Escapes (2 bedrooms) and the exquisite two-bedroom Extreme WOW Ocean Haven also opportunities to relax in style.


Discover the underwater paradise of the North Ari Atoll and the fantastic house reef with the help of the DOWN UNDER PADI-certified diving school or enjoy a high-octane adventure whilst exploring the water’s surface with W Retreat & Spa - Maldives’s action-packed watersports selection. If fast-paced, water-based fun doesn’t float your boat, the resort’s relaxation centre is sure to tickle your fancy. Designed with the elegant silhouette of the Maldivian Dhow in mind, the chic AWAY Spa invites to a journey of self-exploration and transformation. With exotic and extravagant treatments such as diamond dust scrubs, chocolate obsession wraps and piña colada body treatments, we have a sneaking suspicion that an indulgent hour or two here will leave you in seventh heaven.
