Perfect Stay
Everything was amazing and even a couple of things that weren’t perfect upon our arrival were so attentively fixed with such respect and care that I don’t even remember what these were. We have stayed in many top Maldives hotels before and I would, having compared them, would rate the WA very highly. We even got to see a dolphin right outside our villa at sunset! Beautiful island, fantastic food, and (very important for me) no show - offs like in the “famous” One and Only which was such a headache. We are definitely coming back! Thank you Waldorf Astoria for our delightful stay!

What an amazing stay at Waldorf Astoria. Villas were modern and spacious, always cleaned twice a day and the whole resort was spotless. From our arrival we felt the staff was very friendly and helpful with everything. We really enjoyed all their restaurants especially Chinese Li Long. We had very high expectations for this resort as we come to Maldives every year and already tried top resorts and must say Waldorf exceeded all expectations. So well organised, luxurious, and a true 5 star service we liked it so much there that we prolonged our stay to another week. Thanks to amazing team, for making our stay special.

Exceptional luxury in paradise
The guest villas are the most luxurious we have ever experienced! Overall food quality and choice was excellent but the decor and ambience of Terra, Yasmeen and Li Long needs to be addressed.
