Everything we could ever dream of and more. From the lovely welcome we received from Sheeza as we arrived in Male, the help with transfers, the short flight to the island and then the warm welcome when we touched down at the W. I could have cried as it was so beautiful and stunning. We stayed in a beach hut for 3 nights and the rest of the two weeks we stayed in an Ocean view. We loved both. We hardly saw anyone at the beaches - the snorkeling at the reef outside our hut was breathtaking - all the turtles and a few Rays and sharks to be seen. We had lovely neighbours who were quiet too so it was fantastic. We had a bit of rain for a couple of days so we really enjoyed the upstairs where we could sit and read or just contemplate the ocean and enjoy life. We were a bit sad to leave our lovely beach hut - but soon fell in love with our ocean view room too. Totally different - but amazing. We had room 242 - perfect location - not exposed at all and a view over the next island. We snorkeled around the whole island a couple of times - but a lot of the time I just went swimming with "MY" two friends who seemed to live just in front of my deck and who followed me wherever i went. So accommodation and friendly fish were amazing in both places. Food was also very special - we gained a lot of weight even though we were swimming a lot during the day. From our lovely fruit guy at breakfast the waiters and the chefs who were constantly telling us that we could ask for anything we wanted and if they had it they would make it. We ate at the Kitchen most nights, but Fire and Fish were also very good and we did an in-room BBQ one evening which was just fantastic. I was lucky enough to do an Indian cooking class on my own at FIRE and learnt a lot from Randa (spelling?)- so now my friends can't wait for me to prepare a lovely meal for them with what I have learned. The staff and management from the ladies who raked up the leaves in the morning, cleaned our rooms (champions!), fogged the island, to Charles the sommelier and our preferred kiwi, Markus - we have nothing but admiration for you all - you really made this holiday a dream come true. You make W what it is. The library had good books in many languages - even Norwegian and Swedish (well, one each) the gym was not too busy but had lovely views - and who can forget the lovely Mojitos (Try the Mandarin one) at the SIP bar whilst watching the ever so lovely sunset.
Also on departure we had so much help from the lovely Sheeza at the W welcome in Male - she just did everything she could to help us and we were able to bypass the long check in lines and go straight to the counter.
Unique Quality: The staff are really looking out for you and if there is something that is just impossible for them to do - they will come up with VERY GOOD alternatives. The staff makes this experience and this retreat what it is - just Fantastic! Make sure you have full use of the lovely Bliss products in the bathrooms - the best there is. I also used a lot of the suntan lotion provided at the sweetspots and did not get burned. The retreat offers a lot of nice activities in case of rain - we did not have the pleasure taking part in these as it was not raining - but it is nice to have the option.
Directions: In the middle of a fantastic reef - Just please DO NOT touch the reef as we saw a lot of people doing this

Grab a seat at the Sip deck... get there early to watch the sunset as it fills up really fast. Order you favourite sundowner and get ready for the most amazing 'Light' show on earth!!
The W Maldives is Paradise found! We spent 5 days there this last november and wished we had another 5 to watch the sunsets from the bar SIP. I would recommend getting a beach oasis room, as this lets you have two stories of sumptous luxury and your own private strip of beach to boot. The attention to detail at the hotel was great, with a very happy staff, great food, and all around sense of hip laid back cool. The Dive center there is world class. Be warned it is not cheap, but the price point is comparable to others, and dollar for dollar I would go back to the W.
We recently went to W retreat & spa Maldives for our honeymoon, and we really wished we could have stayed longer than five days. We knew we made the right choice as soon as we landed on this beautiful island of Fesdu, it was indeed a little slice of paradise - as rightly described by the Manager. We came with high expectations upon seeing the pictures, and the W experience fulfilled them and more ...
We chose to stay in a beach villa and it was as perfect as its pictures - from the most comfortable feather bed, to the plunge pool, the outdoor bathroom. W designs were well thought of. The best feature is of course ... the unbelievably clear blue water and fine sand carpet await just steps away from our villa. It was our best beach experience.
The water is so warm and W house reef is excellent for snorkeling. We saw turtles everyday, plenty of colorful fish and even a couple of baby sharks .... morning snorkel (7 am, before the sun gets too hot) is highly recommended.
Some reviewers complained about the food and drinks prices but we think they are quite reasonable, particularly considering the logistical challenges that they face. There are three restaurants at W, we liked two of them - Kitchen and Fish. We tried Fire once; although the setting (by the beach) is exceptional, the food quality could be so much better -- the potential is there. Kitchen has nice Indian curry and roti pratta that my husband enjoyed so much. Dining under the stars at Fish is also a must -- though we wish they could turn down the music so we could listen to the waves (we did not mind the music in public spaces most of the time, it adds character to the place). Room dining also has enough variety when one feels lazy.
As mentioned by the other reviewers, the snack huts are wonderful, and they are everywhere ...
The only negative thing about the resort is its weird electricity and lighting system. Given that the island needs to be conserving energy and minimize wastage, we were surprised to see all lightbulbs throughout the resort would be turned on during broad daylight. Additionally, the lighting system in the room is also inefficient, somehow the switchers are linked together so if one wants to turn on the bathroom lights only, the whole room would be lit up. The staff said there were problems with the wiring, we hope they will fix it.
Finally, the W experience is possible because of the people. We noticed that W staff are more engaging with the guests compared to staff of other luxury hotels. For us, we enjoyed these friendly conversations, getting to know people's culture and backgrounds. They are still very polite and provide extremely good service. A specially nice touch was when the Manager and staff sent the guests off to the seaplane, and waved at us. After such a pleasant stay, we thought it was a really sweet gesture. We are already talking about returning for anniversaries! Thank you W for fantastic honeymoon experience.
Just returned from a honeymoon in Maldives spending 6 nights at Soneva Gili and 6 nights at W Retreat & Spa. Whilst we adored the Soneva Gili experience, staying at The W afterwards was a slightly disappointing experience for us.
The resort trys hard to be a 'trendy W Experience' with music pumping out of flower beds which really detracts from the beauty & relaxed nature of Maldives. This 'concept' probably appeals to trendy couples who like dance music and the option of having a nightclub on the island, but it wasn't the relaxing, private, romantic and simple experience we were looking for.
You feel that the concept is to experience 'The W' brand rather than the island/the Maldives.
The best things about the resort are that the chefs are really fantastic and passionate about making something special for you and the food was really great. Our favorite restaurant was 'Fire' with simple BBQ, Mongolian stir-fries and great curries with beautiful beach location. The staff are also very friendly. It was also fun to have free soft drinks and ice-creams placed around the island. The beach hut rooms also have a beautiful top deck with a swing seat on it which we enjoyed with a drink at sunset
There were a few sloppy mistakes the resort made, such as getting something slightly wrong with the order for every meal, cancelling & rearranging appointments with watersports/diving/spa despite us booking things up really early in the stay and confirming them the day before. It was also annoying that they charged us $170 for not returning snorkling kit, even though we were instructed to keep them for the duration of the stay. After complaining they admited this was a mistake and removed the charge, but with no apology so I think they may charge you for this as standard so do check your bill!
Annoyingly our beach hut was on the side of the island that lost the sun by about 2pm, and there are very few communal sunbeds on the island to use in the afternoon. I would recommend you try and stay in rooms 122-125 to get best sunshine.
It was also frustrating that the beach huts have outdoor speakers as our neighbours chose to play loud music all day long - but this is not the fault of the resort.
If you are looking for a fun, buzzy, trendy holiday then I can imagine that you would love this resort, but as we were looking for a relaxing, natural, simple but luxurious stay on a Maldivian island we were disappointed with this resort as it was not to our taste.
My girlfriend and I have just returned from the W Retreat and Spa. Before going we read all the reviews posted here and so had a few concerns about what lay in store for us. I have been to the Maldives twice before, staying at the Four Seasons and Taj Exotica on previous visits. W Retreat is undoubtedly the best resort of the three I have visited
On arrival we were taking to the private waiting room and our experience there set the scene for things to come. The service there was amazing. We were asked how we would like to be called - by our first names or by our surnames. We chose to be called by our first names. From then on, every member of staff seemed to know our names. We did notice that the staff are less formal with people they were calling by their first names so we would recommend that you let your hair down and get them to use your first name.
As with other reviewers, we were blown away by the greeting when we arrived at the island, the stations around the island that provide free drinks, ice creams, sun cream, towels, ice and insect repellent. The quality of the staff was world class - I own a restaurant in london (called The Brickhouse he he) and I would employ any one of the staff at the resort without hesitation based on our experiences
The sea is so blue and we had amazing weather whilst we were there (one day of rain out of 10 days - the rest of the time it was hot and sunny).
We opted for a beach villa, even though we were offered a free upgrade. We wanted the upper floor and there is also vegetation around the beach properties plus they are far more accessable to all amenities. The room is amazing and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The bathroom facilites were fabulous. We took the advise of previous reviewers and requested a villa between the Spa and the Fish restaurant. We had room 124. I would recommend rooms 120 to 127 as being the best options. We loved the Bose sound systems which can play music from your Ipod. We didn't find music from other rooms a problem at all - probably drowned out by ours.
If you prefer a water villa, request one on the lagoon side as the seaplanes land along side the ocean facing villas and you get a fab view of the sunset from the lagoon facing ones. We did look at the water villas and they are as luxurious as the beach villas. We will probably try a water villa on our next visit.
The restaurants are all very good and I do wonder if other reviewers were at the same resort when critising the quality of the food or the staff. Fish is a great - receommend the sushi (and if you get the chance, do the sushi cooking course held every Thursday - you get to prepare and eat sushi with plenty of wine provided and well as getting to meet one of the sweetest sushi chefs ever). Fire is very informal and basically you choose what you want to eat and how you want it prepared and they take care of it for you. Definitely a barefoot experience. Kitchen was our breakfast and lunch venue primarily - we did eat there one night but it tends to be quiet at night. Our only criticism of the restaurants is that they are very dark - not ideal when trying to see wwhat you are eating. Book in advance for the best tables.
The Sip bar is amazing and we went there most nights to watch the sunset and to listen to DJ Charly's chilled tunes. The night club, Fifteen Below, is lovely. It it open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. We went every night we could and had a great time. Only problem for us was the number of other guests who smoked in such an enclosed space, especially big fat cigars! But to be fair, the air conditioning system is very effective. It is a very chic club and could be in any major city in the world so to walk out of it at 2 am into a tropical paradise is weird. But what a great selection of vodkas they have!
The gym is well equiped and I used it pretty much every day. Snorkelling is amazing around the reef. We saw so many type of fish of all different colours, the two resident turles, baby sharks and young manta ray.
We recommend the sunset cruise where the yacht sails straight towards the sunset while you sip champagne and nibble the nibbles and then brings you back to shore in plenty of time for dinner. Also spend a day on the nearby uninhabited island - a great experience.
On the advice of previous reviewers we contacted the hotel before going and requested our room and also booked our Spa treatments. We had four each - the jet lag treatment on the day we arrived was really worthwhile after a long journey. The staff there are great and treatments are wonderful.
The management are very attentive. Both Brian the manager and Coetzie the deputy manager were helpful and friendly.
Don't be intimidated by other reviewers description of the type of guest going to the resort. There were all age ranges and all types of people. We felt the friendliness of the staff rubbed off on the guests as everyone was very friendly. You don't actually see many people around during the day.
All in all ( and I could go on writing this review for a lot longer) we can wholeheartedly recommend the W Retreat. We will definitely return as the resort is chic, chilled, relaxing and has the best of the best as far as staff is concerned.
We have just returned from The W Retreat after being there for 1 week over New Year. We have stayed in the Maldives before and alot of top hotels around the world and although this Island is amazing and we had a great time there are some draw backs that would mean we would not return.
Firstly, the positive comments:- the rooms are great, we stayed in a beach retreat and they are lovely with an upstairs room/balcony with swing bed and outdoor pool and secluded garden with your own little beach front, we would recco a beach retreat rather than a water villa which we did look at whilst there, our retreat was in the best position being room 123, but rooms 122 to 125 are along this best stretch on the island being the most secluded and quiet side, the other side has the sea plane arriving througout the day and although good to watch can be loud, and are also not so secluded. The Island itself is one of the most beautiful we have seen and small so very romantic, the decor is out of this world and very cool and relaxing, it really does have thw WOW factor, the house reef is close to the shore so you can swim out and see amazing fish etc right on your door step. The sweet stations around the Island are a great idea supplying free drinks and ice creams, we loved these. The staff are very friendly, we had a private meal on the jetty which was all lit up by oil lamps and was very romntic.
Now the negative comments:- The Food was not good at all and reading through other reviews everyone seems to agree, Fire are trying to do too much and therefore the quality suffers, our meal was bland and dry and cost $450 with only 1 bottle of wine, so very expensive and not worth it at all, Fish was no better and again bland, we had one of their signature dishes of chilled and grilled seafood platter for two, I am no cook but I could have done better and again with 1 bottle of wine the overall meal cost us $450 again was too expensive and not worth it, the only other option is the Kitchen so we tried that, again very expensive but not great, however better than Fire & Fish, the food was that bad that the last two nights we just had snacks at the pool bar as we were fed up of paying high prices for bad quality food, and the service is terrible, although the staff are friendly they do not seem to beable to be friendly but proffesional at the same time, we had to keep pouring our own drinks although they do not leave them by the table as they are supposed to pour them, you are constantly trying to get their attention to order anything else and in Fish our dirty plates were still on the table when we were paying our bill, the hotel has a concept that the staff love, being that they are allowed and told to be friendly and chatty to clients, this however effects the service and we love to chat to the staff/locals but when they are stood by your table for nearly an hour and your food is getting cold and drinks getting warm and you have to then try to kindly get rid of them so you can eat it does get a bit too much. The Whatever Whenever policy the hotel tries to push does not live up to its name and on several occasions the hotel could not meet our requests an example of two are, at the pool bar all drinks are served in plastic cups, something we were not happy about anyway for a 5* retreat, however in the evening when the pool is not in use we asked for my husbands beer to be served in a glass, a small request we thought? but no this was refused?! at the dive centre my husband wanted to try a dive and was told they would find a suitable time and day and get back to us, they never did! the only call we got was to tell us to return our snorkel stuff on the day of leaving. These may sound like small silly things but trust me when you are paying the amount they charge the small things do irritate you and add up, which leads me onto the cost of everything, thats if your lucky to find out, the hotel we feel think that their clients are that rich that you do not care what the cost is and I think their Whatever Whenever policy is more about the cost to clients, you get a great programme in your room and book on all the things you can do but with no prices, at Fire we arrived was given no menu and was not told any cost until we got our bill, on New Years eve they had a boat full of bottles of champagne of all types and you were told to pick whichever you wanted but again with no prices so you had no idea if what you were picking was going to cost you$400 or $2000 and if you go you will see why as drinks are sooooooo expensive, Finally the Island is trying to be too cool and chic and is therefore missing any sophistication and top quality service, as another review said this is the Maldives not Ibiza, and they are trying to be a mini chic Ibiza. One last note for the ladies out there if you are not 6ft and size zero watch out as all the clients were model types that loved themselves and it was funny to watch the parade around the beach and pool, I am 5ft 6 and size 10, I was the shortest and fattest on the Island and they did look down at you if you were not part of the body beautiful gang.
We have stayed in alot of the One & Onlys around the world and there service cannot be beaten we were hoping the W would match up as we could not get in the One & Only as it was fully booked, we now know why.
This review is a little overdue (we returned from our trip in mid-December!). My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon in the Maldives for 9 days and had a fantastic time! This was our first (and hopefully not last) visit down there and we can't wait to return. We're both Starwood Platinum members using points for a few nights, hence our choice to stay at the W Retreat & Spa.
From the moment we arrived at the airport in Male, everything was so well organized. We had a representative greet us and help us with the seaplane check-in, etc. We then waited in the W lounge before boarding the seaplane. They have drinks and snacks available which was nice after a long trip! They also took a picture of us in front of the seaplane (for their records). As soon as we arrived the resort, there were 10+ employees waiting for us. Again everything was so organized- they took our luggage and placed it on a golf cart and greeted us with drinks! We then were given a tour of the island (on the golf cart) and were checked into our Ocean Oasis. Wow! The room was beautiful with a private deck with our own pool, ladder to the ocean, grill, plenty of outdoor seating/relaxing areas, fantastic bathroom, glass floor in the bedroom, etc. Previous reviews mentioned they couldn't see fish below their oasis but we saw a lot especially at night! The W had the freshest mangos waiting for us upon our arrival! Then they brought us a framed picture of us that they took earlier in front of the seaplane.
Our rate included breakfast at Kitchen everyday. This was a great buffet including fresh fish, pastries, fruit, fresh juices (you pick the fruits!), made to order omelettes, meats, cheeses, and a chef's special everyday (which varied between dim sum, belgian waffles, fried rice, steak and eggs, etc.). Great breakfast!
We took advantage of most of the activities the resort offered. We picked up snorkel gear the first day and ventured outside of the lagoon (there aren't many fish right in the lagoon), tried wind surfing, scuba diving, water aerobics (everyday with Randall- he's fantastic!!!), massages at the spa (much needed after our long trip), big game fishing (a little bit of a bust- we only caught 10lb tuna!), canoeing in the clear canoes, volleyball, cooking classes. Needless to say there are plenty of activities to take advantage of or you can easily just relax at your private pool or common pool.
Unfortnately the weather was a nice as we had hoped it would be (scattered rain showers some days) so we ended up playing cards near the pool bar, rented DVDs from the library, etc.
We tried all three restaurants for dinner. Kitchen was good especially because they offered a variety of food between pasta, sandwiches, salads, pizza, fish, etc. We didn't eat at Kitchen much for dinner because it's the same menu for lunch (at the pool) and room service so we got sick of it really fast. Fire was good although it was only open a couple of times during our stay because of weather. Fire offers a lot of variety using the grill, tandoor oven, salads, etc. It's really nice because it's all outdoor seating right on the beach. The chef at Fire prepared our tuna for us that we caught during our fishing trip that day. Fish was very good but the name says it all. They really only offer fish! There weren't many (or any) options for salads or sides but we did enjoy the food.
We went to 15 below one night (again it was only open a few nights we were there) and it was a fun place to have some drinks with a DJ spinning all night.
We met a lot of great people from all over the world. We are definitely social so although we relaxed on our own the first few days (we were on our honeymoon afterall), we wanted to meet people. The best way to meet other honeymooners was at aqua aerobics! We ended up having dinner a few nights with some of our new friends.
The grounds and staff were fantastic and knew us by name within the first day or so. They were very accomodating and lived up to the Whatever Whenever policy. Just ask! If you wanted a special breakfast, they'll make it! We wanted fish curry one night at Fish (normally not on the menu) and Chef Gamini made us a wonderful dish! Throughout our entire stay everyone kept checking on us to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. Coetzer the Operations Manager was very accomodating.
We were really sad to leave and hope that we'll make it back sometime soon. Just as the staff had greeted us upon arrival, they also waved us goodbye! I would definitely recommend this resort to everyone!
-request the lagoon side ocean oasis- the seaplane runway is right next to the other side!
-Free Internet (but very slow )
-Pick up snorkel gear the first day for your stay
-There is a golf cart (the Mix Cart) that will jingle past your oasis throughout your stay- take advantage and have a drink made for you
-Have the chef make a Traditional Maldivian breakfast at Kitchen
-staff was wonderful
-rooms- well designed, immaculate
-grounds/common areas were beautiful and well maintained
-coral reef at your footsteps!
-food was good
-plenty of options for activities
-Water Aerobics with Randall! (can't recommend it enough)
-private plunge pool/deck
-Mix Cart and refreshment centers throughout the island
-overall coordination and organization of everything
-evening treat brought to the room every night
-EXPENSIVE- the rate was expensive enough but the food and drinks were extremely pricey (i.e. Burger was $24, Mojito was $28, etc.) Pizza was reasonable but that was it!
-staff at WAVE was less then excited to accomodate us. My husband asked everyday for a wind surfing lesson and they made up an excuse everytime!
-lack of indoor activities if bad weather
-lack of restaurant options if bad weather
-extra fees (bottled water was $10, had to pay for breakfast for our fishing trip which already cost $750!)
-not many evening options- for a couple who likes to drink and socialize, the only bar was 15 below which wasn't open many nights
-Big Game Fishing was overpriced (the pricing increased while we were there- went from $500 to $750 overnight!)
-lack of free bottled water- 4 bottles were included everday but that was enough!
If I try describing, I'll only end up typing "Sigh!" over and over again. So let me just write about the parameters you may use to decide between resorts:
Beach: Awesome. white sand, no runaway weeds,
Sea: glorious colours - absolutely Stunning. swimmable waters.
House Reef - awesome. There's a stretch between the Spa and the Fish restaurant that boasts a lovely, steep reef and an abundant sea life ranging from Nemo to rays and baby sharks to 4-feet turtles!
Noise Pollution: Some earlier reviews have complained about noisiness from the night club / music from adjoining water villas. During my visit I definitely heard no loud music from Fifteen Below (the bar) and given that it is an enclosed space, I don't see how they would create noise. As for music from adjoining villas - yes you can hear it, but we did not find it problematic - it is not that loud.
You'll get diet coke, soda water, ice cream, sunscreen and towelettes free (at snack bars across the island). But surprisingly, drinking water you must pay for!. It comes at US$5 for a medium bottle. This was the only thing i did not like about the resort - especially as being Asian, I consider water as a basic item that falls under hospitality . I hope they've changed the policy and included water in their snack bar by now!
there are essentially 3 restaurants:
-- Kitchen (where you also get your breakfast) is good. Breakfast is awesome. The staff is happy to prepare off-menu items which is good coz the menu is limited
-- Fire - barbecue place, open only at night. Only buffet. we didn't enjoy it so much. per person about US$50 (guesstimate, have forgotten the exact amount)
-- Fish - seafood mostly, also includes Japanese items. Excellent.
Kitchen is the cheapest - you can get a pizza for about US$15
Fifteen Below is a bar with a huge range of vodka
Then there's a sunset bar / lounge called Sip which we loved.
Service: Impeccable. Very polite and very friendly. It started right form the point we landed in Male - all transfers were seamless and efficient. For instance, seaplanes to the resort are operated by a 3rd party which can get late (as ours did) so W has a lounge at the airport where they they take your passports and check you in even before you've landed ! when we were leaving they extended our check-out time to 3:30 voluntarily as our plane was late night.
At the resort, we'd be having breakfast and suddenly someone would appear with an item (Dosa / Waffles / something outside the menu) for us to taste, often guessing our taste from our nationality. Or we'd be in the room in the evening, and someone would ring in marshmallows with chocolate sauce. Or we'd be lazing and staff would walk by and inquire what we are up to and give tips (which worked for us) to find turtles. Best thing, their chats were unobtrusive and not a sales-pitch.
villas - we stayed in water villas - technically 'Ocean Oasis'. The hotel website is a true depiction of what it looks like. It's huge, the bath overlooks the sea, just lovely. The only thing over-rated is the glass floor part of the main living room. There is nothing to see through it, coz the villa stands over destroyed post-construction reef. Nevertheless, you do get to see sea-life just sitting in the villa - just sit on the wooden patio and the reef is brimming with it.
Villas can be north facing or south. North ones look out to the beach, and get a better sea-colour view. South ones look into the open sea, so more private. They are also closer to the reef.
cleanliness - excellent
what to so if you are not snorkelling / tanning / water sporting: the resort has a pool table, a great gym, an under-stocked DVD and book library, i-Mac with internet in the library, lotsa board games, swimming-pool exercise classes, etc. Their home-theater system in the room is excellent so you may want to carry some movies with you.
We just got back from our Honeymoon in the Maldives. We absolutely loved our experience at the W. We stayed at the Four Seasons Kuda Huraa prior to the W and you cannot even compare. The Four Seasons was incredible but the W was even better. The beaches are pristine and the snorkeling is the best I have ever seen (and we have been all over the world). The food was excellent and I loved the "Sweet Spots" (the little complimentary ice cream and soda stands set up all over the island). We had a Beach Oasis room and it was beautiful. It is like your own two story beach house. The whole experience is very cool and hip. They even have a little night club that is exclusive for hotel guests. We have already recommended this hotel to all of our friends and we will definitely go back.
Please take a couple of seconds - can anyone tell me where the most perfect beach with palm trees and nice little accommodation is in the Maldives?
Looking for a Robinson Crusoe sandy beach with a little resort/beach bungalows.
PLEASE give me your thoughts.
In the maldives theres a brand spankin new hotel just built on one of the tiny islands over there... its called 'The New W Hotel' Its a modern hotel, not exactely Robinson Crusoe but I would say by far the best beach ive EVER seen in all my trips around the maldives... never stayed there for a night but visited for a few day trips so not sure on expenses... worth a look though.. most perfect beach ever Id say, check it out!

Thanks so much Bec - finally an informative answer instead of the previous unhelpful navel-gazing.
Checked out the website and it looks great. Perhaps the previous others can learn to stay off the forum unless they have anything constructive to contribute.

We've found that other people looking for this hotel also know it by these names:
Address: Fesdu Island,
