The resort defines itself has “A LUXURY PLAYGROUND” with a true “Wow Effect” at arrival. 
The island environment is perfect and offers the dream assets : an ideal lagoon for water sports on one side and on the other a superb snorkeling reef, located at a short distance only from the beach. 

The Resort is set in an abundant but carefully maintained vegetation with sumptuous villas ( in the top most beautiful ones in Maldives in our opinion ) based in front of the beach or over water, an excellent privacy, out of the ordinary restaurants and bars, superb decoration, a chic and trendy atmosphere, and finally a very appreciated perfect service.


Perched above the lagoon, our Ocean Oasis is where the Indian Ocean meets W-style pleasure.

Catch some rays on the sundeck. Go for a dip in your private plunge pool or hop down the steps and dive into the lagoon. Stretch out on the circular daybed to soak up some sun, or close the encircling curtains for a nap in the shade. Grill up a bite on the BBQ. Sip a fine vintage from the wine fridge.

Head inside. Peep through glass sections of flooring in the living room to check out the marine life swimming below. Flip a switch to illuminate underwater lights for a night-time peek at the fauna. Stay connected while cast away with, 42” Plasmas TVs, BOSE® gadgets and High-Speed Internet Access. Drift off in the signature W king bed.
