The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort is nestled on a private island in a secluded Maldivian atoll, amidst thriving marine life.
Just 40 minutes from Male by seaplane, guests are transported into a newfound paradise in the Dhaalu Atoll.
The all-villa resort’s unique design, inspired by the marine setting, has been created to evoke a sense of tropical island village living.
Each of the 77 villas embodies the perfect combination between privacy and luxury.
