St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort wins top ULTRAs Award


At 2018 Ultimate Luxury Travel Related Awards (ULTRAs) the St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort has won the honour of “Best Hotel in the Indian Ocean”. The ceromony for the event was held at Burj Al Arab in Dubai.

Voters came from the well-travelled readers of Ultratravel UK, Ultratravel Middle East, the websites of their partner newspapers — the Daily Telegraph, The National and Al Ittihad — and the top tier members of DISCOVERY, the worldwide luxury hotel loyalty programme in which Ultratravel Collection is the elite segment of hotels.

The St Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort came out on top leading the way in luxury guest care, first-class dining and the overall bespoke experience despite The Indian Ocean category being fiercely contested.

“We are extremely proud to receive this prestigious award at this year’s ULTRAs and be recognised globally as the ultimate hallmark of industry excellence. These awards are dedicated to our entire team and are a testament of their hard work to ensure that every guest’s experience is truly exceptional.” Said Alexander Blair, General Manager at The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort.

Featuring terraces and lush gardens, the polished villas have flat-screens, outdoor pools and outdoor showers. Beachfront villas add sea views; some have 2 bedrooms.
