John Jacob Astor Estate at The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli listed amongst top 100 suites

The John Jacob Astor Estate at The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort has made it to the prestigious list of the Top 100 Suites in the world by global luxury lifestyle guide Elite Traveler. The John Jacob Astor Estate is one of the largest three-bedroom over-water villas in the Maldives, with a total size of 1,540 square meters that features a two-storey main villa and two connecting lagoon villas.

The estate boasts panoramic vistas of the tropical ocean waves, impeccable design, and pristine amenities. Listing the John Jacob Astor Estate in the ‘New’ category of the list, Elite Traveler says: “While an unobstructed view of crystal-clear, calm turquoise water is the bare minimum expected from an overwater bungalow in the Maldives, The St. Regis sets the bar even higher at the John Jacob Astor Estate.”

The three-bedroom, two-storey overwater bungalow is a boutique hotel unto itself, adds Elite Traveler. The estate’s vast furnished terrace showcases a 92-square-meter infinity swimming pool framed by a plush daybed, sofas, and sun loungers. Opening onto the terrace, the palatial living room is distinguished by its lofty ceilings and floor-to-ceiling glass doors suffusing the space with natural light.

It comes with a master bedroom perched on the second floor, with dramatic ocean views from a magnificent private balcony, and a separate living room. The ground floor features two bedrooms – one with a king-size bed, one with two queens – each boasting a refined living space with direct access to a furnished terrace with a Jacuzzi whirlpool.

Stairs lead from the pool straight into the ocean and inside, modern furnishing and custom artwork set the perfect ambience. To top it off a gym, cinema and spa all encompassed within the space truly makes the John Jacob Astor Estate a unique experience.

Published annually, Elite Travelers’ list of Top 100 Suites picks out the world’s most iconic rooms to stay in the year. The hand selected list recognises where hotels have gone the extra mile to create something truly extraordinary.

The St. Regis Vommuli is an island paradise where the ultimate luxury is time, to connect with loved ones, to relax and recharge, and to appreciate the beautiful but fragile ecology that is the Maldives. Designed with modern, contemporary architecture and interior design, the resort creatively expresses a theme of eco-awareness with respect to traditional local culture and the values of St. Regis the brand.
