John Jacob Astor Estate
Clear views of the turquoise ocean extend for miles when you stay at the John Jacob Astor Estate, one of the St. Regis’s most luxurious offerings in the Maldives. Located directly off of the private-island resort with white-sand beaches and rainforest, the massive estate is a two-level, three-bedroom bungalow suspended atop crystal-clear waters. Inside, its sleek design focuses on muted materials, and the furniture draws upon traditional style from Indian Ocean cultures. On the main deck, lounge chairs and daybeds surround the 900-sq-ft infinity pool and Jacuzzi, and stairs lead directly into the ocean for underwater adventure. Its location at the west of the island yields spectacular sunset views each night.
