The resort St. Regis Maldives being developed in the island of Vommuli in Dhaalu atoll is set to be unveiled September 1.
It is the first property in the Maldives to be managed by St. Regis, which is the main luxury brand of globally acclaimed American hotel chain Starwood Hotels and Resorts. Starwood already operates two of its brands in the Maldives: a W Hotel in the island of Fesdhoo in Alif Alif atoll, and its flagship Sheraton brand in the former Full Moon resort. Starwood currently operates 35 hotels under St. Regis brand across the world.
The luxury first-class resort in Vommuli features 77 villas. The water villas, designed by a Singapore firm, are in the shape of rays, while the resort’s signature bar and spa are designed in the basis of a whale shark and lobster respectively.
St. Regis Maldives is situated a 40-minute seaplane flight away from Ibrahim Nasir International Airport. The resort boasts six restaurants offering cuisines and tastes from around the world, including underground wine cellar restaurant.
One of the key features of the resort is the John Jacob Astor Estate, a villa named after the founder of the original St. Regis Hotel in New York, USA. Moreover, the resort also boasts the largest villas constructed in the Maldives. The three villas, measuring 1,540 square meters, have separate components including a 92 metre long pool, living room, master bedroom, kitchen, spa room, mini theatre and a fitness area.
St. Regis Maldives in Vommuli will also offer its guests 24-hour butler services.
