South Beach swagger on an Indian Ocean island, with designer digs, a spa, and nightclub
From bi-level beachfront and lagoon rooms to two-bedroom overwater villas, there are no bad seats in this house. The posh playground at the W Resort & Spa Maldives has 78 air-conditioned designer digs with a laundry list of appointments, including 42-inch plasma TVs, BOSE sound systems, wine fridges and free WiFi. The AWAY Spa serves up a full menu of massage and Ayurvedic treatments in four private, waterfront treatment villas, using award-winning [Comfort Zone] and SUNDÃRI products. Open-air FISH lives up to its name with fresh-caught seafood tastings prepared to order. And nearby SIP lounge offers an après-dîner destination for the social set, while 15BELOW gets the party started by spinning the hottest tunes and pouring over 95 varieties of vodka.
In the Area
Hit up WAVE and take your pick of water sport diversions, with free snorkeling gear, Hobie kayaks, windsurfing boards and Molokini glass-bottom canoes. The center also offers excursions ranging from parasailing, big game fishing and traditional Maldivian night fishing to catamaran sailings, and day and overnight trips to the resort’s private Gaathafushi island at a surcharge. To go a little deeper, DOWN UNDER offers PADI dive certification, two-tank dives around the Fesdu and Halaveli wrecks, and an overnight whale shark expedition aboard the luxury yacht ESCAPE. Back on shore, WET infinity pool makes a strong case for staying at the hotel with a popular bar and uninterrupted views.
