JW Marriott Maldives Resort & Spa opened on Vagaru Island, part of the Shaviyani atoll in the Maldives, last month.

The resort offers 60 spacious villas, all with private pools and sunbathing decks. Select villas offer overwater pools or direct access to white-sand beaches. Additional split-level villas are designed with multigenerational family travelers in mind, created to give everyone privacy, as well as spaces to come together. Each room’s décor reflects the local nature and wildlife, from thatched roofs to color choices.

There’s always something for guests to do on property. A full range of mindfulness-focused activities are available through the fitness center and spa, including yoga sessions and workout classes. Adults-only spaces include a shisha room, billiards room and cigar room. A kids club provides spots for children to enjoy educational activities, play and even a nap.

Five restaurants offer fresh Maldivian seafood, Thai cuisine, brick-oven pizza, Japanese teppanyaki and fine dining. Three bars offer more than 300 varieties of wine, sake, nearly 100 varieties of rum and cocktails.

“We are thrilled to open our JW Marriott brand in this truly amazing destination,” said Mitzi Gaskins, vice president and global brand leader, JW Marriott. “With a focus on holistic well-being and enriching, thoughtfully-curated experiences, this private island resort will inspire our guests to be fully present and come together with loved ones to enjoy a getaway that nourishes not only the body, but also the mind and soul.”

The Water Club at Borgata Review

My husband and I arrived to The Water Club Hotel at the Borgata in Atlantic City, New Jersey, for our two-night stay and drove directly to valet parking. After the swift drop-off process, we took the escalator to the lobby to check in. With no one ahead of us in line, we were checked in and on our way to our room on the 30th floor in no time.
