The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, the finest address in the Maldives, is excited to reveal its new Ultra-Luxe Stay Packages and range of acupuncture and wellness journey treatments. The opulent private stay experiences are now available in the coveted John Jacob Astor Estate, the largest overwater villa in the Indian Ocean, and Caroline Astor Estate, the idyllic three-bedroom beachfront villa looking onto the pristine white sand beaches and azure waves of the sea. Poised to offer extraordinary moments to cherish forever, The St. Regis offers every luxurious amenity within reach through thoughtfully curated packages that indulge travelers while providing utmost privacy and world-class personalized service.

“Fulfilling our legacy of exceptional service, The John Jacob Astor Estate and Caroline Astor Estate feature luxurious accommodations with personal St. Regis Butlers, ensuring guests every request is met promptly and discreetly, day or night,” said Vincent Pauchon, general manager of The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort. “The exclusive stay packages provide the latest and greatest experiences our valued guests expect and deserve. For example, our new wellness services support exceptional health and well-being, while also aligning with a safe and private environment, following expert protocols and elevated practices in response to the current and ever-evolving travel climate. Within minutes of arriving at their villa, guests will truly feel as though they have escaped the modern world into a tropical bliss like no other.”

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 the epitome of sophistication and 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 spectacular outdoor terrace and plush pool deck with a 92-square-meter infinity pool framed by a plush daybed, sofas and sun loungers and anchored by a private sandy ‘beach’ overwater, palatial living room, distinguished by its lofty ceilings and floor-to-ceiling glass doors, which suffuse the space with natural light, and formal dining room that is serviced by a fully furnished show kitchen and butler pantry. Perched on the second floor, the lavish master bedroom is an exquisite haven that offers dramatic seascapes from a private balcony.

Guests are presented with everything they need at their fingertips and can enjoy a home theater with modern entertainment options including a 55-inch Bang & Olufsen LCD television and sound system, an inviting study, private spa suites with steam rooms attached to each of the bedrooms, gym and yoga studio, staff quarters, and luxury guest room villas that each include a private plunge pool and Jacuzzi whirlpool, indoor and outdoor showers, refined furnishings and unfettered sea views.

The Caroline Astor Estate perfectly blends comfort, elegance and pleasure. The beautifully appointed ground-floor terrace boasts a 67-square-meter private swimming pool framed by sun loungers and a plush daybed and pristine white sand from the outdoor beach space at your toes for the ultimate rest and relaxation. Delightful sea vistas are the highlight of the thoughtfully designed ground-floor bedrooms, welcoming retreats with lofty ceilings and ample natural lighting. Each room features a twin-size signature St. Regis Bed, with a 55-inch LCD television promising the latest entertainment.

The elegant second-floor master bedroom, featuring floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open onto the furnished balcony, allows you to wake to the soothing sounds of the ocean waves. Marble bathrooms, complete with walk-in closets, exhibit meticulous design while a private wooden deck houses an outdoor shower with dual shower head complemented by an indoor glass-enclosed rainforest shower. A separate deep soaking bathtub elevated by luxurious bath amenities ensures unsurpassed pampering. Marble double vanities are enhanced by a 20-inch mirror-embedded LCD television and showcase burnished fixtures.

Visible through towering floor-to-ceiling glass doors, the terrace adjoins an empyreal living room, where lavish furnishings balance light wood floors. The perfect setting for a memorable meal, a refined dining table that seats six and a convenient show kitchen make hosting effortless.
