Where Privacy Meets Luxury: The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort Unveils its Ultra-Luxe Package in the John Jacob Astor Estate

The largest overwater villa in The Maldives presents an inimitable private experience that travelers crave

Malé, The Maldives – October 20, 2020 – The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, the finest address in the Maldives, reveals its Ultra-Luxe package, an opulent private stay experience in the famed John Jacob Astor Estate, the most sought after villa in the Indian Ocean. Distinctive of The St. Regis, the package puts every amenity within reach and features curated experiences to indulge guests as they are comforted by an unparalleled sense of privacy and personal service found within the jewel of the resort.

“We recognize there is a key shift amongst travelers and the industry underpinned by a greater priority for elevated privacy and premier luxuries that can be experienced with fewer to no crowds,” said Vincent Pauchon, general manager of The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort. “Steeped in immense history and tradition, the John Jacob Astor Estate has always presented the highest caliber of well-appointed privacy and exclusivity, and in order to cater to this new mindset in travel the Estate and experience needed to be endowed with more. Each element in this package is reflective of that and is thoughtfully designed for our guests to live exquisitely, safely.”

Aptly named after John Jacob Astor, the founder of The St. Regis and one of society’s most storied moguls, the dual-story, three-bedroom estate is notably referred to as the property’s ‘la piece de resistance’. It is coveted as the largest overwater villa in the Maldives, boasting over 16,500 sq ft of impeccable design where extravagance is complemented by a keen sense of simplistic minimalism and panoramic views that stretch across the mesmerizing ocean waves. The Estate features world class amenities including an expansive terrace and plush pool deck with a 92-square-meter infinity pool anchored by a private sandy ‘beach’ overwater, grand living room outfitted with Bose sound system and modern entertainment options, and formal dining room that is serviced by a fully furnished show kitchen, butler pantry and private chef.

The Estate presents guests with everything they need at their fingertips with a home theater with an 85-inch Bang & Olufsen television, private spa suites with steam room, gym and yoga studio, staff quarters, and luxury guestroom villas that each include a private plunge pool and Jacuzzi whirlpool, indoor and outdoor showers, refined furnishings and unfettered sea views.

About The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort
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.
