Only accessible by seaplane or the resort’s 66-ft yacht, The St Regis Vommuli Resort is utterly secluded and stunning, with lush rain forest, bright white beaches and endless ocean views. The architecture is delightful, too (check out the Whale Bar; it’s shaped like, you guessed it, a whale shark, and the boutique is shaped like a conch shell). 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.
