Sit back, grab a glass of wine and get a sneak peak into what my husband and I believe to be one of the (if not the) most magical places on earth, The St. Regis Maldives - Vommuli.
This property only recently opened (November 2016) yet it felt as though they had been opened for many years. Everything ran like clockwork. We spent our honeymoon at this property 2/23 – 2/28 and will never forget our stay. Besides being one of the most beautiful locations we’ve visited (and we have both travelled the world) we found the staff to be impeccable. They literally made our stay unforgettable. From the moment we stepped off the plane we were greeted by the St. Regis welcoming team and escorted to the lounge to await our seaplane. We were served cold beverages and had access to Wi-Fi. Within the hour we were escorted to our plane and enjoyed a 40-minute ride to the island. The view was stunning. Once again after we arrived there was a staff that greeted us with cold wash clothes and a cocktail. We were treated like royalty. It was upon our arrival we met our Butler, Shauzoom, who would care for us the remainder of our stay. He was awesome and saw to it that our every need was met. All we had to do was casually mention something and like magic it appeared in our room. The mini bar was changed out to accommodate our beverage preferences and included fresh limes for me! On the second day of our stay my husband mentioned at breakfast he missed his French press. (There were Nespresso machines in each of the villas but my husband is a bit of a coffee snob.) That evening our butler saw to it there was a French press prepared and delivered to our room so that my husband could make coffee at his leisure in the morning! And it came every day after. One day my husband asked it there were any bath salts as he thought it would be nice for me to have a warm bath one evening. When we returned from dinner that very evening there was a warm bath with bath salts and rose petals drawn and waiting for me! My husband didn’t think I would ever get out! Seriously? Can you believe their service? And the next day our housekeeper, Haisham, was freshening our room AGAIN and I mentioned I would like to snorkel but didn’t know where to put in or the best area to explore. Now remember these folks work incredibly long hours but they do have a two-hour break during the day. Haisham offered to personally take me around during his only break of the day! It was one of the many highlights of my stay. He was so sweet and saw to it my first snorkel would be perfect. YOU MUST take advantage of the snorkeling. It was beautiful and crystal clear. I saw more sea life, reef fish and coral than I have ever seen and I have snorkeled all over the world (Bali, Maui, Roatan, The Keys, etc.) I know this is getting long but stay with me. There are just a few more highlights that must be mentioned.
The over the water villas have EVERYTHING you need. It was hard to leave it each day to explore the property, have meals, etc. LOL! We loved the private pool (used it everyday, nice, cool fresh water). All of the restaurants were AMAZING! The food was incredible. Our favorites were Alba and Orientale. Alba has a breakfast you have never experienced. We started each day with a bloody Mary followed by Mimosas and then preceded to have a five-course breakfast! LOL We just couldn’t stop ourselves. We are big-time foodies and the food was amazing. Anything and everything you could imagine to eat was there and if not, they would make it for you!! For example, lobster and King Crab omelets, Foie Gras eggs benedict and everything in between. It was all very Appetizing. We also loved the dinner at Alba. The tenderloin is AMAZING and I consider it a must try. My husband’s favorite, Orientale, serves three cuisines. (Chinese, Japanese and Indian). Our dinner that night included something from each cuisine! Everything was absolutely delicious. Since we had eaten at every restaurant during our stay, on our final night we had to decide which restaurant to repeat. My husband wanted Orientale and I wanted Alba. He gave in and let me have my choice. When we arrived at Alba for dinner he mentioned he had wanted to go to Orientale but came to Alba for me. The awesome Food and beverage team (Deepak and Mizu) asked him what he liked so much at Orientale. He told them about the dinner he had had earlier in the week and you guessed it… They took his order and picked it up at Orientale and brought it back to Alba for him. We both got what we wanted. These are but a few examples of how wonderful and accommodating the St. Regis staff was for our entire stay. OK, I cannot stop before mentioning the Whale Bar. It was our favorite place to visit for sundown and cocktails before dinner. We didn’t miss a night. We were greeted every night by Mizu (with her beautiful smile and big hugs) and the awesome bar manager, Aakash, who saw to it we had any cocktail we could dream up and made sure we were comfortable and cared for. Including taking pictures of us each night! These two together with the DJ (Great Music!) and the rest of the Whale Bar staff makes the Whale Bar a must! And lastly, the Decanter was a wonderful experience with exceptional staff. The wine selection at this property is not to be outdone. The Team we met and took care of us that evening (Nilesh, Benekikt and Mayank) was simply awesome. I can’t recall everyone’s name but together they all made it a very special event.
And lastly, the only recommendation I have for improvement would be the ladder off the villa to get into the water. With the rounded metal steps it makes it a little slippery/difficult to get in and out of the water. You may want to add some paint with sand for a better grip or change out to flat metal steps. ☺ Small in comparison to everything else that was simply perfect
I cannot recommend this property enough. If there is ANY way possible for you to visit, you must.
Thank you to the entire staff at the St. Regis, Maldives – Vommuli! We loved our stay and will never forget you.
