The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, Dhaalu Atoll, Maldives

John Jacob Astor Estate

An unobstructed view of crystal-clear, calm turquoise water is the bare minimum you can expect from an over-water bungalow in the Maldives. As usual, The St. Regis sets the bar even higher at its newest property’s most luxurious offering, the John Jacob Astor Estate. And an estate it truly is! The three-bedroom, two-story over-water bungalow is practically a boutique hotel unto itself. The 990 sq ft infinity pool is surrounded by daybeds, sofas and sun loungers, offering a private and comprehensive outdoor experience. Stairs lead from the pool straight into the ocean for underwater exploring. Inside, modern furnishings and custom artwork create a soothing environment, with a gym, cinema and spa all encompassed within the space. Classic St. Regis butler service tops off the luxurious experience.
