The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli has welcomed a new hotel manager to lead its operations.
No stranger to life by the beach, Dominic Scoles has moved from the Turks & Caicos for his new role at the luxury private island resort.
A seasoned hospitality professional, Scoles brings more than ten years of experience to The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort - itself recognised as the World’s Leading Luxury Island Resort by the World Travel Awards.
As hotel manager, he will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the resort, its staff and will also overlook financial management for the property.
This includes planning, organising and directing all hotel services, including front-of-house, food and beverage operations and housekeeping.
Scoles said: “I am honoured to be a part of the St. Regis family once again.
“I have been privileged to be a part of the larger Marriott group for several years and am truly excited to overlook the operations of this luxurious property and its many unique offerings.”
The American national kicked off his career in hospitality in 2005 as the general manager for a lounge in Arizona.
Two years later, he became the project manager for the launch phase of three hotels, including W Scottsdale, where he simultaneously took up the role of director of food and beverage.
In 2009, Scoles moved to Los Angeles as director of food and beverage for the dining venues at W Hollywood.
The following year, he took up the role of hotel general manager at a coastal resort in Mexico.
After two years at the helm of the boutique hotel, Scoles joined Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa in California as director of bars and restaurants.
Alexander Blair, general manager at The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, said: “We are happy to have Dominic on board and are certain that his expertise in managing luxury resorts and top dining destinations will be an asset to the resort’s operations.”
The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, which opened in November 2016, is nestled on a private island in a secluded Maldivian atoll, amid thriving marine life.
Just 40 minutes from Male by seaplane, guests are transported into a newfound paradise in the Dhaalu Atoll.
The resort will host the World Spa Awards on Friday, October 26th.
The resort draws inspiration from nature itself.
Designed by Wow Architects | Warner Wong Design (Singapore), the unusual contemporary design of The St. Regis Maldives draws inspiration from the natural setting of the resort.
This is represented by the manta ray shaped lagoon villas, a signature bar in the shape of a whale shark, a lobster-inspired spa and a spiral shell shaped library.
Guests can take a virtual tour of the resort here.
There are six distinct dining venues at the St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, 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.
