W Retreat & Spa – Maldives launches James Bond promotion

The W Retreat & Spa – Maldives has launched a special James Bond promotion allowing you to live like the famous double agent; flirt with adventure by day and your Bond Girl by night. The 5 nights package includes the following adrenaline filled experiences: Begin your mission surveying the island on your 1 hour private speed boat hire. Riding the azure waters, you can spot the chic architecture encompassing the island, as well as the blinding white silhouette of the Away Spa. These are obvious targets for those wanting access to your exclusive getaway. • SeaBob Lessons – Straight from the set of “Die Another Day”, this “water rocket” is a cross between a Jet Ski and body board and can propel you over and underneath the water at speeds of 20kmh. Get enough practice and the bad guys will never be able to catch up. • Night Snorkeling – Late night quest? You can scout the underwater world with your night snorkeling excursion. Suit up and see what comes   out after the sun sets and the stars light the sky. The thousands of fauna and corals found in the North Ari atoll are the most abundant in the Maldives. • Parasailing – For your eyes only! Fly high and get a surreal view of the island and the Indian Ocean. Even though this could take your mind off the adventure, you will still get a rush gliding through the air. • Kite Surfing – Ride the waves and learn to fly across water. Private kite surfing lessons will give you the skills to help maneuver in any situation; a pseudo “License to Kite Surf” if you will. • Take your Bond Girl her for a martini at 15BELOW, one of the only true nightclubs in the Maldives. There you can tell the W’s mixologists which one of the 90 vodkas you prefer. The resident DJ will spin groove beats for those brave enough to let their guard down. The award-winning W Retreat & Spa – Maldives features everything a modern Bond would demand; style, access and sleek retreats with private plunge pools, plasma screen televisions, DVD/CD players, indoor/outdoor showers, BOSE speakers, the W Signature bed, a wine fridge and more. The James Bond package includes 5 nights’ accommodations, 1 hour private speed boat rental, SeaBob lessons, night snorkeling, Parasailing, Kite Surfing lessons and 2 martinis at 15BELOW. Rates start from US$900 per night, per couple in a Beach Oasis.

  1. AS an SPG Platinum member, I accumulate alot of points through business travel. I would LOVE to go here for a trip, but the SPG Points redemption is one of the worst values of all SPG properties in the world!

  2. I have to agree Kendal SPG is not a great redemption value, i find Hyatt or Hilton are by far and away better.
