The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort is celebrating a triple win at the World Travel Awards Indian Ocean Gala Ceremony.
The prestigious World Travel Awards Indian Ocean Gala Ceremony took place at the five-star Sun Aqua Vilu Reef resort in Maldives on Saturday, with hospitality leaders from across the region in attendance.
At the ceremony, the newly opened St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort won three top accolades, including two regional awards, Indian Ocean’s Leading Luxury Island Resort and Indian Ocean’s New Luxury Resort. Additionally, the ultra-luxury private island resort was awarded the title of Maldives’ Leading Luxury Island Resort.
Upon receiving the awards, General Manager Alexander Blair said: “We are extremely proud to collect not one, but three awards at the World Travel Awards, which is recognised globally as the ultimate hallmark of industry excellence. These awards are dedicated to our entire team and are a testament of their hard work to ensure that every guest’s experience is truly exceptional.”
World Travel Awards was established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the tourism industry. Today, the World Travel Awards brand is recognised globally as the ultimate hallmark of quality, with winners setting the benchmark to which all others aspire.
The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, named in the Condé Nast Traveler 2017 Hot List as well, is nestled on a private island in the secluded Dhaalu atoll, amidst thriving marine life. Just 40 minutes from the main Velana International Airport by seaplane, guests are transported to a newfound paradise.
Designed with great respect to its natural surroundings, the resort, which opened in November, is surrounded by a large house reef and the island is defined by several distinct ecological areas: lagoon, beach coastal and jungle. At The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, guests have the luxury of staying in one of the 77 island and overwater villas, shrouded in lush tropical flora, each with a private pool.
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.
