W Retreat and Spa Maldives

North Ari Atoll, Maldives

While lounging above the Indian Ocean in your private maritime nirvana, what marine life might you see through the glass-bottom floors? Or, while soaking in your oversize plunge pool out on the sundeck, might you spy one of the Maldives’ famous yellow fin tuna, or perhaps a manta ray? Whatever you may see from your carefully curated thatch–roof cabana, complete with a Bose sound system and the W’s comfy king-sized bed, it is only a tease of the colorful flora and fauna that awaits on a diving or snorkeling excursion, expertly guided by the W’s staff. But you may be content to just stay put and watch the ocean lap by, given how dreamy life is right here in your personal ocean oasis.
