St. Regis Maldives unveils luxury yacht, Norma
The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort has unveiled its own luxury yacht, Norma.
The brand new Azimut flybridge 66 yacht, which is the most technology advanced luxury yacht in its class, features four decadent cabins, and is perfectly suited to those looking to dive, enjoy family adventures, indulge in a romantic getaway or escape on an overnight trip.
Norma is available for guests to charter on daily or hourly basis, with a minimum of four hours rental required, including two hours of cruise and up to eight guests. It can also be booked for an overnight stay, which includes full board meals and champagne sabering ritual during sunset cruise.
“Norma offers ultimate opulence whilst taking inspiration from the St. Regis’s heritage as paved by its founder: John Jacob Astor IV. In 1884 Mr. Astor purchased the largest private yacht in the world named after the princess Nourmahal, the heroine of Thomas Moore‘s poem ‘Light of the Harem’,” The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort said, in an announcement.
“In 1910, he replaced it with the yacht Norma as a nickname of Nourmahal, which is known to be the original Norma yacht.”
The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort 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 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.
