We have travelled the world and stayed in some of the finest hotels and resorts but for us the Waldorf Astoria Maldives tops them all! A truly exceptional resort with outstanding service and an impressive selection of restaurants serving delicious food of the highest standard. Honestly we found it hard to find fault in this resort!

Given the hefty price level of this resort, you expect a low. However, I haven't been disappointed. What sets this resort apart is the very personal service (in 10 days I always saw the same person for room service and the same concierge for all other matters), the very private setting (although the resort is high in demand, you feel like it's not busy at all) and its great restaurants.

This is the best travel experience and hotel we’ve ever had! We were greeted like royalty. A personal concierge was assigned to us, Hazuki who was always available and provided exceptional service! She was always there to respond immediately to any of our requests and made all bookings and reservations on the go, including restaurant bookings, spa, photo shoots and others! If you ever end up going there make sure you ask for Hazuki as a personal concierge!

We visited this summer with young kids. The hotel is beautiful. There is a nice kids club. However, unlike many other upscale resorts, this hotel property doesn't have solid child proof options - kids can easily access to outdoor pool and directly to the ocean. They offered fence around the pool at charge - but how about the big ocean? What's the point to fence the small pool but not able to block the kids from freely entering the ocean? One resort we went was able to put child safety lock on the french window, so the kids can go out freely. Another was able to fence up any edge that's next to water. Hence, in short, a lux hotel like this, is really not thoughtful or having enough attention to details, which defines the tier of the hotel. Again, it's all about small details and putting yourself in the guests shoes. The people who run the hotel probably don't have young toddlers or lack of baby proof knowledge, or simply just not thoughtful enough to bring themselves to even higher quality.

From the moment we boarded the yacht transfer upon arrival to our departure our experience has been truly magical.
Firstly, the yacht transfer is luxurious and we were lucky we were the only ones and felt heavenly.
The pictures on social media do not do the hotel justice. The location, rooms, restaurants and amenities make the hotel in my view “Best In Class”.
All the hotel staff we had interaction with from the yacht concierge, housekeeping, restaurant staff to management have been absolutely phenomenal and are most definitely assets to the hotel. My apologies for not remembering all of the names but I would like to mention a few individuals in particular who made our stay unforgettable. Musa (Personal Concierge) is truly exceptional, took care of every of our requests with optimum professionalism and efficiency. Gasim Asif (Housekeeping) Absolutely fantastic and the room was cleaned and arranged excellently. Lastly, I would like to mention Marco Araujo (Resort Manager) really bubbly character and would ensure all of our needs were taken care of like Musa. We also had CR7 discussions in common! . He also made the effort everyday to speak to all the guests especially during breakfast which I’m sure is one of the reasons which this positive & attentive behaviour results in a truly amazing team @ The Waldorf Astoria.

We ate at majority of the restaurants and the
food and service was exemplary.

I cannot recommend this hotel enough, personally speaking this is most definitely our Best Ever experience and I would highly recommend this hotel for any occasion. You will not be disappointed in bc any aspect of your stay.

Already, looking forward to a future stay at this Magical hotel.
