The St Regis Vommuli Resort will open on a private island — the Vommuli Island in the Dhaalu Atoll — in 2016.
Guests will take a 40min seaplane ride from Malé and venture through the 20ac property. There are 77 private villas with designs that were inspired by the island’s colours and natural materials. Facilities include a spa with six private treatment rooms, an infinity pool, as well as access to a lagoon with aquamarine waters and pristine sands. A dive and activity centre also lets guests venture into the cool blue waters.
Dine at an all-day restaurant, or choose from three specialty ones. The bar will serve the hotel chain’s Bloody Mary cocktail, which was created in New York in the 1930s.
Celebrities who have visited the Maldives include the Beckham family, Michael Phelps and Cristiano Ronaldo.[via CPP Luxury]
