it was an unforgettable trip the butler service was top! the villa was excellent and so was the view. complete privacy. the reception on arrival with the private yacht was also very good. on the return we had someone from the hotel who guided us to past the check point this was 5 stars plus especially with all those documents in covid period. Waldorf Astoria gets a big congratulations from us. The only downside is that the restaurants are very expensive as also the motorized water sports.

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.

Lots of fish and great variety. Overall, it was a perfect vacation. If you want to go to Maldives, do not look any further than Waldorf Astoria!!
