Double win for St. Regis Maldives’ Iridium Spa at World Luxury Spa Awards
Iridium Spa at The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort has won two awards at the World Luxury Spa Awards.
At the gala ceremony of World Luxury Spa Awards that took place at the JW Marriott Hanoi hotel in Vietnam on Saturday, The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort’s Iridium Spa received two continental awards for the best Luxury Boutique Spa and Luxury Wellness Spa in Indian Ocean.
The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, which recently won three awards the World Travel Awards Indian Ocean Gala Ceremony, 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.
The signature Iridium Spa at The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, which opened in November, promises a transformative journey in an oasis of tropically inspired sophistication. Alighting atop the scintillating waves of the Indian Ocean, the 1,850-square-meter overwater sanctuary features plush furnishings set against white oak interiors to create an ambience of elegant tranquility.
Each of the six couple’s treatment suites — including two Ayurvedic suites with private steam rooms — offers a refined retreat. Sliding glass doors allow guests to admire unfettered sea vistas from their spa beds while private terraces with soaking bathtubs ensure relaxation enhanced by fresh ocean breezes. En-suite showers and bathrooms provide unsurpassed privacy and convenience. Additional pampering can be found in the spa’s steam rooms, saunas and cold-drench showers.
Situated on a covered terrace and commanding picturesque ocean vistas, the Blue Hole Pool is the most expansive hydrotherapy pool in the Maldives. Heated seawater and an array of whirlpool jets melt away tension while offering curative benefits for both mind and body. Guests are also invited to unwind on comfortable poolside chaises.
Offering a holistic approach to wellness and rejuvenation, the spa’s treatments are enhanced by Natura Bissé products, hand-selected for their therapeutic benefits. Each visit begins in the serene Iridium Room, where guests can sip the exclusive Iridium tea while taking in views of vibrant marine life through glass floors. An Ayurvedic specialist, acupuncturist and other expert staff are at the ready to curate bespoke rituals to fulfil each individual’s wellness needs, from Balinese and Thai massages and herbal body scrubs to facials, manicures, and pedicures that will leave each guest feeling refreshed.
Refreshing snacks and juices from a spa cuisine menu can be enjoyed in a relaxation lounge, while there is a boutique that allows guests to take exclusive product lines home.
