15 Below, our Wow Night-Clubbing Experience at W Maldives.
I hesitated before choosing the title of this new post … it seems so strange. But as strange it might sounds, this is what you will discover today… We will show you that Maldives island undergrounds can sometimes hide the most incredible places.
Have you ever imagined yourself dancing in a nightclub at 15 feet below the beach of an island in Maldives?
The idea seems so eccentric. But this place, so unlikely it might be, does exist on the elegant and ultra-chic Island of W Retreat & Spa, one of the most exclusive and glamor resort of the Maldives, located in North Ari Atoll. There, the Whatever/ Whenever Concept of W Hotels seems to have no limit.
W Retreat & Spa has a unique place in the World, “15Below”, a nightclub with a very evocative name, since it is located at 15 feet underground, just beneath the beach.
Dance under the sand of a tropical Island
15Below is a true nightclub and one worthy of the name in the Maldives, where nightlife is not very common in Maldives.
But if you feel to party after a day at the beach…then this is for you.
Definitely Hip, the club has nothing to envy to the fashionable nightclubs of the biggest capitals.
Just after leaving the surface of the island, from the downstairs, the transition is immediately impressive. We quickly lose the sense of space, wondering if we still are in Maldives or in a trendy club in Paris or New York.
The place is magical and deliciously confusing: sophisticated and intimate atmosphere, private alcoves with lounge beds and view on the dance floor, Electro music, blue phosphorescent cocktail bar, contrasted colors, all in a very cutting edge design. The decor is amazing.
While the bartender prepares cocktails, each more surprising than the next one, a DJ mixes near the dance floor.
The scene will look familiar if you like hip nightclubs. It looks completely disconnected from the scenery above our heads, at the surface of our little island.
At W Maldives, Music has a unique significance as the resort brings international DJ’s to play on a 3 month rotating basis. These pros of music remain on the island for several weeks to orchestrate the various events of the island, according to their own inspirations and those of the customers.
DJ’s also mix during Sunset, every evening, in a completely different atmosphere at the SIP Lounge bar situated over the lagoon, at the RETREAT and the SURRENDER during the “After Dinner” beach parties with shishas, bonfire, daybeds & lounges and finally during full Moon nights.

The singularity of 15BELOW also lies in a unique collection of Vodkas in the Maldives, consisting of over 95 names, including the only Vintage Vodka in the World the “Kauffman Private Collection 2003 Vintage – Limited Edition” which is also the most expensive in the club, at 40 USD/ 25 GPB the shot.
Since the opening of 15BELOW, Maldivian nights have a whole new dimension and will never be the same.
15BELOW is open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 9:30 p.m. to 2:00 am.
So, Clubbing enthusiasts, take note!
