It’s time again for us to put the spotlight on one of our favourite luxury resorts in the Maldives, one whose name is synonymous with exceptional service and incomparable experiences all over the world.
The St Regis Vommuli Resort is perched upon the picturesque Dhaalu Atoll – an island that encompasses all that it means to be a triple threat in our books; lush greenery, pristine white sand and an unspoilt house reef you just won’t be able to take your eyes off. But it’s the service here that really makes your stay what it is. St Regis is famous around the world for providing stand out experiences for their guests, and their Vommuli resort is no exception. It all begins the moment you arrive on the island, when you are escorted to a private seaplane lounge and greeted by the resort’s friendly staff. Here you will be handed an iPad on which you will watch a welcome message from your personal butler before indulging in your choice of champagne or wine. If you are traveling with kids, rest assured that even they will be able to enjoy the VIP experience, with a selection of mocktails available for them to choose from. These first few moments set the tone for the remainder of your stay; tailor-made luxury characterised by a belief that everything and anything is possible.
This incredible resort is an architectural dream, cleverly designed to pay homage to the surrounding ocean environment through marine life inspired buildings. First you have the Iridium Spa, a sophisticated overwater sanctuary that provides a nurturing and nourishing array of therapies for you to spoil yourself with whenever you like. Shaped like a lobster with the main facilities – relaxation lounge, health food café and a boutique – in the centre, three individual treatment pods spread out either side to resemble legs and claws. Here you can immerse yourself in bespoke Ayurvedic rituals designed specifically for your individual needs, with options ranging from acupuncture and massage to body scrubs, facials, manicures and pedicures.
But the real crown jewel here is The Blue Hole; a suspended hydrotherapy floatation pool that hangs above the Indian Ocean. The largest pool of its kind in the Maldives archipelago, it uses heated seawater and a variety of whirlpool jets to melt away your tension and provide your mind and body with a host of cleansing benefits. Spend your days here to relax and unwind in true Maldivian luxury, or enjoy your desired treatments at night to watch the sun set over the vast ocean spreading out before you.
For those who love to wine and dine their way through a holiday, there is no better place to do so than St Regis Vommuli. At the Whale Bar – built to resemble a whale shark, with the deck entrance bearing similarity to the mouths of these gentle giants – you can enjoy a range of delicious tapas as well as three and five-course set menus. Ask one of their experienced sommeliers to recommend the perfect bottle of wine to go with your meal, or choose from the wide range of spirits and unique cocktails as you relax on the bar’s incredible open-air, over water terrace. With five other incredible dining options to choose from – including an incredible underground wine cellar offering state of the art degustation dinners – every craving is catered for during your stay.
Of course, we can’t talk about the Vommuli Resort without mentioning the stunning over villas that you can call home throughout your stay. From above, these elegant abodes look like manta rays with their extensive wing spans – but we all know it’s what’s on the inside that truly counts. Each villa is equipped with a private swimming pool, open-air shower, gorgeous views of the surrounding ocean vistas and over water hammocks that are sure to become your favourite place to relax and unwind.
There is no end to the incredible experiences St Regis Vommuli guests can enjoy during their Maldives vacation. If end-to-end service and state of the art luxury is what you’re after, this is an option that promises to never disappoint.
