The St Regis Maldives Vommuli is dreamy hideaway with the largest overwater suite in the Maldives
By Samantha Coles | April 20 2020
Only accessible by seaplane or the resort’s 66-ft yacht, The St Regis Vommuli Resort is utterly secluded. It is ideally poised on a 22-acre private isle in the Dhaalu Atoll and has 77 villas surrounded by pristine landscapes of thick tropical vegetation, fine white-sand beach, lagoon and the glistening turquoise Indian Ocean.
The architecture is delightful, too, and is likely the first thing you’ll notice if you fly in. Check out The Whale Bar; it’s shaped like, you guessed it, a whale shark, the boutique is shaped like a conch shell, and the overwater Iridium Spa mimics the shape of a lobster.
Top suite: The John Jacob Astor Estate
The John Jacob Astor Estate is the largest overwater suite in the Maldives, and large it certainly is — at just over 16,500 sq ft, it has two stories with three bedrooms, a gym, cinema, spa suites, an enormous swimming pool, expansive kitchen, dining room for 12 and an enormous deck overlooking the Indian Ocean. Or, if you think that might not be enough space, the entire resort is available for full buyout.
