W Maldives partners with Maldives Border Miles, extends incredible perks to Marriott Bonvoy members
Best Luxury Hotels in The Maldives
16 February, 2022
It all began exactly fifty years ago from today, when the first group of tourists arrived in the Maldives on February 16th, 1972. They discovered the beauty beneath the sea in this secluded archipelago populated solely by fishermen. The wealthy nature of the Maldives was not discovered until that point - not to the locals, nor to the rest of the world. Since then, the tourism industry of the Maldives has never looked back. Thatch-roof villas build with coral bricks and motor slowly transformed to contemporary architectural styles with the most luxurious touch on them, making Maldives as the ‘paradise on earth’.
Year after year, decade after decade, the world slowly discovered the pearl necklace in the Indian Ocean and learned that there are a lot of reasons why a Maldivian holiday could be the best memories to cherish for the rest of their lives. As an add-on to this, Maldives Border Miles, the world’s first destination loyalty program, announced plentiful perks for the members in return for their love to the country.
Today, on this special occasion of the country’s tourism, W Maldives, part of the W Hotels Worldwide and Marriott Bonvoy Maldives portfolio, becomes a partner of the Maldives Border Miles, extending the perks to the members while they enjoy W Maldives’ "Whatever/Whenever service".
Imagine waking up to the sound of the waves drumming against the infinity pool, a wonderland of white-sand beaches, turquoise lagoons, and breathtaking reefs. From the moment you step onto this heart-shaped island playground, welcoming infinite days amplified by the only music curator in the Maldives, playful guestrooms, and innovative cocktails and cuisine, creating a cutting-edge lifestyle experience. Explore the world beneath the waves at DOWN UNDER and glide with reef sharks in one of the best house reefs in the Maldives. W ignites an obsessive desire to soak it in, live it up, and hit repeat.
Whether you prefer to jump in the ocean from the deck of your overwater bungalow or you like lush tropical foliage steps from the sand offered by aesthetic beach room, you can live it up and soak it in from comfortable, stylish villas inspired by the breathtaking natural beauty of Maldives.
Abandon the expected and sample creative dining at W Maldives’ four vibrant restaurants and two bar concepts. Beautifully dispersed amongst the island, these restaurants and lounges ensure to inject the pulsating beauty of the Maldives in every dining experience.
During 2021, W Maldives celebrated their 15th anniversary with major achievements in the industry. The W Maldives won the Best Resort in the Indian Ocean 2021 in the Conde Nast Traveler UK Reader’s Choice Awards and Best of the Best in Romance – Asia category in TripAdvisor traveler’s Choice 2021. For 2022, W Maldives is nominated for Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia - Asia's Best Awards 2022 (Best Resort in the Maldives, Best Spa in the Maldives, and Favorite General Manager in the Maldives).
With all these to consider, it is time to plan for W Maldives’ "Whatever/Whenever service". The Abaarana members of the Maldives Border Miles will be offered the most looked forward joy during the stay, a "Float Your Way" floating breakfast as a treat at W Maldives. Additionally, they offer "early check-in and late check-out upon availability" to Aida, Antara, and Abaarana tier members of the program.Check Availability and Rates
