The W Retreat and Spa Maldives is a fantastic looking property. Unfortunately SPG does not provide any deals booking high-end properties such as this one using points. It's usually a hefty 90,000 (!) Starpoints per night. Cash prizes start at $850 for the property. You can book it with our partner hoteltravel.com.
How to get there?
United Mileage Plus gets you to the Maldives (via Istanbul) for 80,000 miles in Economy and 120,000 miles in Business. A great way (among others) to accumulate United Mileage Plus miles is through the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card.
