The rooms are amazing.
The alchemists are great.

The issue for me was diving. The boat trips typically go to the same reef and it gets repetitive.

Plus the cost of those trips is much higher then any other resort.

Kihavah and cbr would be a nice trip. Get the snorkeling and diving done at kihavah then go to Cbr.

The issue with kihavah is the reef is completely destroyed and bleached out. Baa atoll got hit bad by bleaching.

Not a big diver or snorkeler by any means, but the W really does have a fantastic house reef and nearby dive spots. Unfortunately, it's a W (and I heard they made it even MORE of a W after I was last there).
