THE St. Regis Maldives is home to the John Jacob Astor Estate, one of the largest overwater villa in the Maldives. With a total size of 1,540 square meters and featuring a two-storey main villa and two connecting lagoon villas, it is the perfect residence for wealthy Middle Eastern families.
The John Jacob Astor Estate is the resort’s Presidential Water Villa Suite and offers total exclusivity from the rest of Vommuli Island, Alexander Blair, General Manager of St. Regis Maldives, said. Looking out on to the expansive Indian ocean, the three-bedroom Estate is one of the most sought-after destinations in the Maldives for the super affluent traveler from the GCC. The two-storey villa showcases an impressive Olympic-size infinity swimming, a home theater with state-of-the-art surround sound and private wellness center. Guests of the Estate will also benefit from a personal St. Regis butler and round-trip airport transfers with Bentley Motors.
A private Bentley buggy chauffeur will also be on hand 24 hours a day to escort guests around the 22 acres of the private Island Resort. Whilst being shuttled to the white pristine beaches of Dhaalu Atoll, the overwater Iridium spa or to one of the six distinct dining venues, guests can enjoy the natural surroundings of the island’s distinct ecological areas such as the lagoon, jungle, beach and coast, he added.
The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, which opened in November 2016, is nestled on a private island in a secluded Maldivian atoll, amidst thriving marine life. Just 40 minutes from Male by seaplane, guests are transported into a newfound paradise in the Dhaalu Atoll.
The resort draws inspiration from nature itself. Designed by WOW Architects | Warner Wong Design (Singapore), the unusual contemporary design of The St. Regis Maldives draws inspiration from the natural setting of the resort. This is represented by the manta ray shaped lagoon villas, a signature bar in the shape of a whale shark, a lobster-inspired spa and a spiral shell shaped library.
There are six distinct dining venues, including an Asian specialty restaurant, a modern Italian restaurant that features a grand staircase, an underground wine cellar restaurant, a shack style restaurant, a signature overwater bar that rolls out stunning views of dramatic sunset, and a pop-up restaurant in the middle of the resort. Additionally, guests can also enjoy the Iridium Spa, which presents six overwater treatment rooms, including two that are dedicated to healing Ayurvedic treatments. Spa guests can also enjoy a Blue Hole pool, which contains heated seawater with different water jets – a system with proven benefits to the body.
