Top World Travel Awards 2023 accolades for The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort

The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort has been voted the winner of three hotly contested categories in the 30th annual World Travel Awards: Indian Ocean’s Leading Luxury Resort 2023; Maldives’ Leading Luxury Resort 2023; and Indian Ocean’s Leading Luxury Hotel Villa 2023, which recognised the resort’s opulent John Jacob Astor Estate. With over 18,500 square-feet of indoor/outdoor living space, the residence is the largest three-bedroom overwater villa in the Maldives.

The World Travel Awards were established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the tourism industry. The organisation is globally recognized as the ultimate hallmark of quality, with winners setting the benchmark to which all others aspire. This year, the World Travel Awards commemorates its 30th anniversary of rewarding travel distinction.

“It is an honour to be recognized by the World Travel Awards for the seventh consecutive year,” said Vincent Pauchon, General Manager of The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort.

“Our ability to earn top honours across three categories is a testament to our hard-working team and valued guests who provide us with the necessary feedback to continue raising the bar for luxury experiences and service in our world-class destination.”

The St. Regis Maldives resides on the private island of Vommuli in one of the destination’s most exclusive atolls. Revered as the Maldives’ finest address, the inimitable property is designed by WOW Architects and presents a rarefied expression of luxury – from its distinctive accommodations and facilities to bespoke programming – complemented by intuitive personalised service, signature to The St. Regis brand.
