“I am thrilled to join W Maldives and to being able to provide Insider tips to our guests and to creating unique and memorable experiences which become highlights of a guest’s W experience,” Mijung said.

W Retreat & Spa Maldives is celebrating five years of operation this year and with just seventy-eight private retreats is the ultimate jetsetters escape providing guests with a place of rejuvenation and allowing them to recharge and prepare for whatever is next.

Here are a few of Mijung’s Insider tips.

  • Let W’s Mixologist prepare cocktails for you at SIP, the retreats sunset lounge bar which offers the most stunning views as the sun dips over the crest of the Indian Ocean.
  • Escape to Gaathafushi – the retreats own private island.  A short speedboat ride to the deserted island is yours to explore for a few hours, or a full day.  A real ‘Robinson Crusoe’ experience.
  • Snorkel the island with a guide from WAVE – W’s watersports team.  The coral reef around AWAY Spa is a favorite of many guests where the underwater scenery is just steps away from the shoreline.
