    Our opinion

    “Offering optimum luxury and incredible style.”

    Hotel description

    Surrounded by the dazzling turquoise of the Indian Ocean, W Retreat & Spa sits on small Fesdu Island in the North Ari Atoll. Opened in September 2006, this beach oasis aims not to have any negative impact on the flora and fauna of the island. The resort is made up of 78 villas, 28 of them set on the beach and 50 over the sea, allowing guests to appreciate the sublime beauty of the situation. The villas all feature a W Signature Bed, custom-made furnishings, plunge pools, a ‘munchie box’ and a wine fridge, ensuring optimum comfort and luxury. Combining the traditional architectural styles of a dhow and the pure lines of contemporary design, the overwater Away Spa allows guests to relax with therapies from Thailand and India brought together with modern techniques and technologies. Guests can also make use of the Sweat fitness centre and the peaceful library. The resort’s dive centre, Down Under, allows you to explore the awe-inspiring underwater life in the beautiful lagoon. Water plays an important role throughout the resort, especially so in Wet, the pool bar. This combines a wet and dry pool bar so that guests can swim indoors and outside, enjoy a relaxed poolside meal, or drink in the lounge as the sun sets. Guests are able to choose from three restaurants, including the romantic Fire, which takes its influence from a jungle barbecue and where bare feet are encouraged. This is an incredibly stylish yet luxurious and comfortable resort with much to offer.
