We arrived at this resort on Chairmans invitation and we had the best time of our life. the rooms and the privacy is amazing. We had a two bed over water villa with huge pool and jacuzzi. The attention to detail really was superb. the kids club is totally amazing with lots of activities during the day to keep the little ones busy. We felt there could be a lot of improvements with the F&B and on our last night the arabic restaurant had opened and let me tell you, where we felt the food and beverage was weak, the arabic restaurant made up for it all. Having gone there from Dubai, we felt the arabic cuisine that we had there was one of the best. The must try is the Kunafa. Unfortunately the shisha in the resort was not good and very expensive. needs a lot of improvement there as shisha is something we had every day. Apart from that, the staff, the resort, the facilities are second to none. We dream of going back one day, and our special thanks goes to Power International Holding and Mr Ramez al Khayat for our invitation and Nanie who looked after us while we were there and made sure my little boy had everything he needed. He spent Halloween there and he loved every minute of it. We truly will not ever forget this trip! Thank you to all and keep up the good work

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.

From the moment you step off the plane to the moment you’re back on, you are left in the hands of the most extraordinary staff within the most exquisite resort. The 45 minute luxury yacht ride is the beginning of the splendor that will surely become one of the most incredibly memorable trips. The Waldorf has done as impeccable job at fine tuning the little details to make this place a taste of heaven on Earth. My husband and I celebrated our 20 year anniversary there and spent 8 nights in this Paradise. We loved every moment and really enjoyed the spacious over water villas as they were super clean and new. Each day, your towels are refreshed and your villa is left in tip top shape. The privacy within your villa is incredible…something that was a top priority for us. The food was great but I have to say, our favorite was Yasmeen. The food is generously portioned and very authentic in flavors. We wished we didn’t leave it till the end of our trip, but then again if we didn’t, we would have gone there everyday and not experienced any other restaurant! Tiffany(with the help of Boos for a few days), were our personal concierge and they were both wonderful and very accommodating. I had done months of research before making the decision to reside at the Waldorf and let me say, they did not disappoint. Pricey…yes, but you won’t have any regrets!

This resort is truly the paradise on earth. The most amazing villas you can imagine, the best service you can ask for (our butler Ziyad did everything and beyond to make us comfortable and happy. Mutu in the bar was the most service minded bartender i ever met), the most amazing water to swim in and like this it continues. The Spa was the best spa we ever visited. We been to many places around the world, but this was for sure the best resort we ever visited. Can't recommend it enough.
