i had the W send me their full brochure, and it was extremely disappointing imho.

in direct response to the OP's question
is One & Only better?
yes, in my opinion One and Only Reethi Rah is better than W Maldives by far.

I had reservations there, but based on reponses I got to emails about things such as plat. amenities, etc.and pictures of the (over) development of the island, cancelled and stayed at 4 seasons instead (where btw, I was treated quite well despite not being an "elite" in their program, well they don't have a fstayer progream )

oh, what a dissapointment. I did think the place was over developed, but stayed in W Montreal and I really liked it. Also, i was looking forward to the SPG points that I would have transferred to BA Executive Club points.

I think I will cancel. Does anyone know how/where to get the best deals for O&O Reethi Rah?

Thanks again,

Did you end up staying there? If so, what were your impressions? I am thinking of staying there in mid-March. Thanks.
