The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort has won the honour of “Best Hotel in the Indian Ocean” at 2018 Ultimate Luxury Travel Related Awards (ULTRAs) ceremony held recently at Burj Al Arab in Dubai.
Voters came from the well-travelled readers of Ultratravel UK, Ultratravel Middle East, the websites of their partner newspapers — the Daily Telegraph, The National and Al Ittihad — and the top tier members of DISCOVERY, the worldwide luxury hotel loyalty programme in which Ultratravel Collection is the elite segment of hotels.
The Indian Ocean category is fiercely contested, but The St Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort came out on top leading the way in luxury guest care, first-class dining and the overall bespoke experience.
Alexander Blair, General Manager at The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, said: “We are extremely proud to receive this prestigious award at this year’s ULTRAs and be 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.”
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.
