Hotel's Favourite
I normally don't write reviews, but this property deserves the effort. There are many positive things to say about the Waldorf Astoria Maldives. We've stayed at other Waldorfs as well as other Maldive properties, and the level of customer service at this particular property is superior and welcoming. First, the yacht ride to the island was perfect, our yacht concierge Sam made us feel right at home. She set the tone for the rest of our stay with her wonderful and friendly service. Our personal concierge Saddam was also fantastic, ensuring we got reservations to all the restaurants we wished and checking on us everyday at breakfast. The staff at the restaurants were all very kind and fun as well! They made us the best meals. Our compliments to the talented Culinary Director VJ and his colleagues of amazing chefs, Sam, Hayat and Addi and our servers Bilhy, Shazeel and Husynu, all whom took great care of us. It makes a huge difference to the quality of our vacation when the staff are genuinely kind and welcoming, taking time to remember our names and likes and chatting with us. It goes without saying that the property and rooms are beautiful. We loved the traditional thatched roof of our villa and the high ceilings. I spent everyday solo snorkeling on our reef just off our infinity pool. There is an abundance of large, vibrant and colorful marine life just 20 meters where the reef drops deep into the ocean beyond. It was such a thrill to be able to wake up and jump into the warm Laccadive Sea and swim with large parrot fish and other creatures every morning. Thank you Etienne Delançon for managing such a "fantastique" team. We really enjoyed everything about our stay, the privacy, the food, the well appointed villa and location and the amazing and warm staff. We hope to return soon.

We stayed here in at WA Maldives in May 2022. Family of 4 with 2 kids. We had a wonderful stay and the property is beautiful! From the yacht ride to the 3000 sq ft villas, this place screams luxury. Each room has it's own pool which is not always the case in the Maldives. To to completely Honest, any villas here probably would put most presidential suites to shame. That is how amazing this property is. The food was also very good. We had both in-villa dining and restaurant dining. Both were delicious and have many international selections. I would like to give a shout out to the Duty Manager, Sophie. We did had a problem with some of the lights on our deck and they had to send engineers to fix it. Unfortunately, it could not be fixed, but Sophie was there to help. She offered us an upgraded room and really worked with us. We felt that she really cared about the guests' experience at the property. Overall, we will definitely like to come back.

An unforgettable experience, the staff are super nice and professional, the way the greet the visitor is something that will make you feel welcomed by all of their staff especially muzah ali as he is one of nicest most attentive people I have met , lots of food choices, as we have stayed for 5 days there and we could not cover all the restaurants in the hotel, multiple activities and sports to be done in the island. The rooms are spacious and the design is something to look for. I would have loved to have an open cinema there, as an extra activity at night for those who want just to chill and relax.

We had an amazing over the top experience at Waldorf Maldives. The service is impeccable and 5-7 star quality hands down! We were greeted by a 2 bedroom million $ yacht and served unlimited veuve clicquot champagne, with outstanding service from Jimmy. Upon arriving a lineup of a dozen staff greeted us waving from the yacht. Anis, relations manager greeted us and already knew us by name. He went above and beyond to make anything happen for us. Ihusan was like our own personal butler and also went out of his want to make anything and everything happen. No was not part of his vocabulary. He was outstanding in every way imaginable. Our room was not ready upon arrival and they allowed us to experience a beach villa which was super amazing. They moved all our things once the room was ready. Melody, Makuda were some of our memorable servers at the restaurants, made such good conversation, explained the details to a T with all our meals and courses, and made us feel so special, as did every single one of the staff. Jamin cleaned our room daily and amazed us each time with his quality work. He put effort into every detail to the point of lining up all our toiletries and gadgets in neat fashion, and providing extra supplies catered to our needs based on his observations without us having to ask. Lamphan and Eli at the spa, and our two masseuses where outstanding. I had an authentic Balinese massage from a Bali local (sorry forgot her name) and it was heaven. As you pass each staff member, they make a gesture placing their hand on their heart, to mean they put their whole heart into what they do. It really makes you feel so loved and special. The resort itself if outstanding. You pay more but the quality and service is impeccable. Our Villa is above the rest of anywhere I have stayed at and I don’t know if we will ever be able to top it. The coral reef out back is amazing, plenty of fish; however there are a lot of dead corals. We hope global warming improves and that this area flourishes again. Happy hour at 4pm was amazing with live music, and servers were again outstanding. We also received free breakfast with bottomless top notch champagne. Many of the staff are professional photographer level and were always happy to take our picture! The outstanding service did not end all the way until we passed through the gate at the airport. Our last hoorah included a yacht trip to the airport by an entire crew. Nihad walked us all the way through security (including himself through the metal detector), and wheeled our bags all the way to the door! Where will you ever find service like that!?!? Over all I give this 100 stars and must do on your bucket list!

We had a wonderful, and a valvular time, the level is Service is unmatched as well for the quality of services that is amazing at least to say. Our island advisor was Tatiana, and she took care of us in a manner that demonstrated what WA means. The returants at WA are amazing. Tasting table has a generous amount of amazing servings, flow is amazing with its healthy food, LiLong is impressive, Terra is worthy of a three miclan star restaurant under the artisan craftsmanship of chief Burak, and The Lodge has a fantastic contemporary dishes. The highlight of our trip to WA was terra and it amazing experience also I highly recommend trying the tea selection at LiLong and speaking to Long-Pay, an authentic tea guru, about picking up some tea selection to take back home. My wife and I have decided on having our run away vacation always with WA Maldives.

The Maldives is awesome almost no matter where you go, but the Waldorf provides service and rooms like no other. We were waited on like a VIP celebrity. Anything and everything was possible. We travel the world, and this resorts service far exceeded any other place we have been. The rooms are to die for. We had a room overwater. It was huge and had every amenity. The staff is super friendly as well. We had our own personal butler that took care of everything. I just wish it wasn't 23 hours away, or we would be there more often.
