You’ve probably had this getaway dream before — a massive, Maldivian island paradise, all to yourself. While for some the scene truly is what dreams — and, well dreams alone — are made of, you can now make this dream a reality thanks to an ultra-exclusive buyout option offered by The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort. With 77 villas that usually accommodate up to 154 guests, this stunning island resort can be yours alone with their full-island buyout experience, available for an easy THB7.6 million (US$250,000) per night.
The extraordinary island experience was especially created to meet the needs of travellers looking for elevated privacy and exclusivity. Couple that with what The St. Regis brand is known for worldwide — world-class amenities and the highest calibre of service — and I believe you have the recipe for a phenomenal getaway like never before.
Once you set foot on the island, expect to be greeted by a dedicated team of St. Regis Hosts — on hand to offer the signature St. Regis Butler Service, in which curated itineraries can be crafted to suit your every need. From dolphin cruising and snorkelling through crystal-clear waters; cruising on the resort’s very own Azimut Flybridge 66 Yacht named Norma; to relaxing Ayurvedic healing treatments at the Iridium Spa; and beachfront barbecue dinners by the infinity pool paired with wines from their award-wining Decanter wine cellar, these are just a few example of the activities you can partake in.
For those who enjoy extraordinary gourmand experiences, the buyout also includes daily breakfast at their all-day open kitchen restaurant Alba, which promises delectable Italian cuisine. Thereafter, food and beverage credits are given to use across their six unique restaurants and bars, including the Whale Bar, an overwater lounge with stellar views overlooking the Indian Ocean and their private coral reef.
When it’s time for slumber, buyout guests can take their pick of the ultra-luxe villas. All of which are inspired by an ecological element and reflected into four villa types with different designs and interiors. Perhaps you’ll want to be like water and rest in the Overwater villas that echo the fluidity of the lagoon; reside in the golden Beach villas; stay in the lush greenery of the Garden villas; or occupy the Maldivian style family villas which resemble traditional dhoni boats. Highlights include the overwater John Jacob Astor Estate and equally exquisite beachfront Caroline Astor Estate.
So there it is, probably one of the most stunning private island buyouts on our radar right now in untouched tropical landscape, kissed with sparkling sand and ocean, for just under two million Hong Kong dollars. Scroll through our gallery below for more of an inside look.
