the beaches at the conrad, PHH, and W are MUCH MUCH nicer.

ive been to 6 resorts in the maldives and even cheap 4* ones come way way ahead than the waldorf when it comes to beach and lagoon beauty. which at the end of the day is why i fly 30+ hours across the world and is also why i will never ever visit the WA.
The Reethi Rah, another predominantly man-made resort, has a lot of the same beautiful colours but if you want a typical marine life and coral on your doorstep experience you're out of luck.
