This is the best hotel We’ve ever been to. We are celebrating our honeymoon and we had a fantastic time. The staff here provides exceptional service. Every single one of them. Mena was our butler and he did an exceptional job. He went the extra step to make sure we had the full St. Regis Maldives experience, being himself from Egypt, Mena even arranged for us to have a full Arabic breakfast from the chef and also managed for the Orientale chef to cook us a special meal. He made our trip memorable. Also, Thaarim made special surprises every time we came into our bedroom, making cute towel arrangements, jacuzzi honeymoon decorations and bed decorations. St Regis surpassed our expectations. We will definitely be back when we get a chance.

Hotel's Favourite
December 14-20 Arrival: From the moment we got past immigration and customs we were greeted by an extremely friendly St Regis staff member, Unoo, who took us to the Maldivian seaplane check-in counter to check in our luggages (only handbags and backpacks were taken with us by the staff). We then got into a St Regis suv that provided fresh cold towels and water. The suv took us straight to the St Regis lounge about a 5 min drive from the airport to wait for our seaplane. The lounge was impeccably clean and had WiFi as well as a light refreshment menu that consisted of sodas, ice tea, and light bites. Unfortunately alcohol wasn’t on the lounge menu. From the lounge we also had a view of the ocean and seaplanes coming and going. We waited approximately an hour before our seaplane got here to take us to the resort. The distance from the lounge to the seaplane was a mere 2-3 minute walk, but because it’s the St. Regis treatment we were escorted to the suv and arrived within 30 seconds. Seaplane: Once out of the suv we were taken by a staff member into the seaplane waiting area. We sat in the waiting area for less than ten minutes before boarding. We were once again escorted by a staff member to the plane. The seaplane itself was small and pretty crammed with a cabin that consisted of about 15 seats and two captains up front. Our flight had about 8 people. The plane ride over to the resort actually turned out to be a delight. We got to see many blue atolls as well as islands, and the turquoise clear water. It was quite magical as we barely see water this beautiful. If you have a little one like us consider bringing a noise cancelling headphone as the plane gets pretty loud. The flight took about 40 minutes. Arrival at the St Regis resort: Once we landed in front of the St Regis reception deck we were greeted by 8 people with big smiles on their faces waving at us. These were the butlers that would be taking care of the guests for the entire stay. Our butler was Ibrahim and he would be assisting us for our 7 day, 6 night stay. All staff on the island are required to wear a face mask and guests can roam around without. Once we stepped off the plane and onto the reception deck Ibrahim greeted us and brought us to the welcome area overlooking the turquoise ocean. He handed us each a cold towel and a fresh coconut while we got about ten minutes to absorb the moment in. From there he took us on his buggy, (one of the main modes of transportation around the island or you can go by bike) and gave us a tour of the resorts facilities and then took us to our room. Looking around we realized we didn’t see a lot of guests. Even though the resort was at capacity it looked empty. Beach Villa: Our room the first night was a beach villa. We wanted to experience both a beach setting and a overwater setting. The beach villa was beautiful. Upon stepping into the villa we saw two adult bikes and a kiddie bike parked outside ready for us to enjoy. The villa itself felt like a ultra nice glamping villa. It was minimalistic and spacious. The corner sofa was converted into a single bed for our 8 year old. The king size bed stood directly overlooking the deck’s plunge pool and beach. The beach villa felt more secluded from the rest of the resort. The bathroom was luxurious and huge with a his and hers vanity and wardrobe on opposite sides with an indoor shower and luxe stone tub, and two, (yes two) outdoor private showers with access direct from the beach. We used the outdoor shower more during our one night beach villa stay as we kept going in and out of the beach. The sunset was beautiful. And so was the sunrise on the beach. The beach villa was perfect for our 8 year old as he liked the sand and just dipping his feet into the water. In the front of the king bed was a sitting area where we got a bottle of free champagne and fruits. Daily fruits, coffee, and tea are complimentary. You can request fruit from your butler or like us, our butler brought it every afternoon without us asking. These are the well appreciated gestures we love about the St Regis. There’s an illy coffee maker in the room as well as a water kettle to make tea. The Illy coffee and TWG tea is complimentary and replenished twice daily at cleaning and turn down service. There’s also a fully stocked wine fridge of about 10 bottles of wine. Prices range from $75-200 for bottles that actually cost $15-50 at most if you’re from the usa. There’s also a cart with spirits in the room ranging from Jack Daniel’s to Johnny walker black. Prices were about $90-200 per half bottle. Chips and snacks were also exorbitantly priced at $12-15 a can. We actually bought our own chips, but finished our three small bags within two days. Bring your own big bags of chips and snacks. You’ll need it. Overwater Villa: The next day and during the rest of our stay we checked in to one of the overwater villas. And this is what you come to the Maldives for! We were put in villa 507 which was the sunrise side. We requested the sunset, but unfortunately the entire resort was booked. It had its own plunge pool with netted hammocks overlooking the water. The overwater villa was pure paradise. It overlooked the whole expanse of the ocean. The ocean was calm and a beautiful shade of clear turquoise. Every day we were there we lived in that moment. We’d get out on the deck and take it all in. The pictures you see online are already beyond beautiful but standing there breathing the salty air and taking it all in, realizing that we were actually here on this breathtakingly beautiful island at that very moment was beyond comprehension and words. Directly off the outdoor deck you can go down your personal villa stairs and into the ocean. Our 8 year old was a bit terrified as the water though shallow for us was still about 6 feet deep for him. We were able to snorkel for most of the stay. The best snorkeling was directly in the villas behind us and in front of the John Astor suite. There are a lot of coral reefs in that area. We saw sting rays, angel fish, reef sharks, and a bunch of other colorful fish of all shapes and sizes. We literally felt like we were in an aquarium. Snorkel gear can be requested from the butler. We ended up bringing our own gear, but Ibrahim also bought the resorts snorkel gear for us just in case and we did end up using their fins. The service here is impeccable. Pictures any time of the day turn out perfect without filters as long as it’s sunny. There were two rainy days, but the storm cleared up by early afternoon. During golden hour was where we got the most phenomenal pictures. Restaurants: There are 5 restaurants on the resort: Alba, Cargo, Crust and Craft, Whale bar, and Orientale. Our butler booked our restaurants and schedules for us even before we got to the resort. He had a print out of our days and which restaurants he had reserved but we can also request to change etc. ALBA We had breakfast every morning at Alba. Alba is the only restaurant opened for breakfast daily from 7:00-10:30 am. Since we booked our stay on points we also got breakfast for two for free. Kids under a certain age are free. Without complimentary breakfast I believe it’s $55/person not including the automatic 10% service charge that’s include on every bill on the island. I believe every table we saw had complimentary breakfast included. Breakfast is the only meal on the house. Every other meal averaged about $80-300 per meal for the 3 of us. Breakfast has one of the best buffets. They also have a menu to order from based off a QR code. We didn’t realize we were able to order Benedict’s or omelettes off the QR menu until the third day. The buffet was already very good in itself. There was a lot of vegetarian options that were surprisingly good. Being a non vegetarian I actually enjoyed a lot of the vegetarian items moreso than the meat items. Off the QR menu our favorites were the lobster omelette that came with sprinkles of caviar and the waffles with duck confit. We also ordered sliced mango and mangosteens daily. Mimosa is included in the breakfast so you can order to your hearts desire. Juices, coffee, and a few other non alcoholic drinks are also available for breakfast at no additional cost. All servers we had were very amiable and professional. Everyone was enthusiastic and greeted us with big smiles. If you sit regularly at the same area daily some of the servers will start knowing you by name. I didn’t see many tables put down a gratuity at breakfast. Those tables I did see put down some gratuity put down about $10 or more per table in usd. We also had Alba at dinner and their pastas did not disappoint. Alba served mostly Italian and American cuisine. Prices ranged from $28+ usd. CARGO We had Cargo two nights at the resort and they served food with an Egyptian flair. We thoroughly enjoyed the wagyu kebabs and their chicken tandoori dish. Every meal was expensive. Each meal item such as an appetizer to entree ranged from $30-120 usd. Portions were not very large. We actually felt the most full at cargo. There is also a kids menu at every restaurant. Kids meals were on average $28 usd and small. Prices ranged from $28-200+ usd. CRUST Crust and craft is the only pizzeria on the resort and is located next to Alba on the main beach. It is only open for lunch I believe. The pizzas were delicious at $40 a pizza consisting of 8 slices with thin chewy crusts. This is a more affordable option for dining. They have equal vegetarian and non vegetarian pizzas to choose from. We had their cheese pizza and spicy shrimp. Both were fantastic. Pizzas start at $35 usd. ORIENTALE Orientale is the only restaurant with Chinese and Japanese flair. This was our least favorite meal of the stay. We felt the meal was very basic as we come from Los Angeles and Japanese and Chinese food are abundant and extremely tasty. We ordered a sashimi mix entree and a prawn dish. The sashimi consisted of tuna, salmon, octopus, snapper, and reef fish which tasted like snapper. The prawns here are huge. Both dishes were good, but nothing memorable and was one of our pricier meals here. I think our meal here was over $250 including a kids meal. We did make new friends here and there and a lot of couples rated Orientale as one of their top faves. None of theses couples were from Los Angeles. Prices ranged from $28-200+ usd. WHALE BAR The Whale bar serves tapa style dishes and grilled steak dishes. We loved the ambience of the whale bar. We came here two nights in a row to watch the sunset and it was beautiful from their deck which was furnished with cushy sofas. You have to order a drink if you watch the sunset here. Non alcoholic drinks range from $10-18 usd and alcoholic starts at about $28 usd. The cocktails we ordered were very good and we tried a few throughout the stay. You really can’t go wrong with any cocktail. For tapas we chose the prawn and again the prawns were huge and tasty. We also got the Maldivian octopus that had a chewier texture I didn’t quite enjoy but hubs enjoyed a lot. We didn’t order any grilled steaks but a lot were wagyu based. I didn’t see any tables near us order steaks as the majority were from the states. Everyone seemed to lean more on the seafood side. At dinner time they also had a solo one man singer/band. This was a nice surprise. This was one of my favorite meals here. Prices ranged from $28-200+ usd. ROOM SERVICE We also had in room dining twice during our stay. The food was slightly less expensive than the restaurants, but by slightly it was only a $5-10 difference. Food was just as good as dining at the restaurants and choices came from all over the 5 restaurants on the island. COCKTAIL HOUR: During our stay our butler informed us we were all invited to a welcome cocktail hour on Friday. It was the first time they restarted this service since the pandemic. This was the only day and hour you were able to get free booze on the island aside from mimosas at breakfast. The staff basically set up a happy hour from 6-7 pm at crust on the beach. Cocktails and champagne and wine as well as non alcoholic drinks were served alongside passed h’orderves. This was the only time we saw lots of people on the resort. Even at that I think it was 50-60 people. Everyone came out to grab drinks and I believe I met 5-6 families all from the states or Dubai. Everyone averaged 3-5 drinks considering cocktails and wines by the glass cost $30 a pop on the resort. Take advantage of this one and only cocktail hour if you can. Excursions: Throughout our stay we only did two excursions; one which I thoroughly enjoyed and the other I didn’t so much. Sunset Fishing We booked sunset fishing one night and the excursion was from 6:00-8:00 pm. We boarded a clean and decent sized fishing boat with about 5 other guests and 3 staff members who would be assisting us throughout the activity. It took no more than 20 minutes to get to the fishing area out at sea and we were presented with lines. This wasn’t your average fishing rod/ hook type of fishing. We were presented with line fishing. And oh boy was it fun. No guest on board had ever done this before and it was guaranteed we would at least catch one fish per person. Our 8 year old did not want to do this and opted to just watch mom and dad. This is probably a better activity for kids 10+. Throughout the 2 hours I caught 5 fishes and the hubs caught 2. In total everyone on board averaged 1-3 fishes. Fishes we caught ranged from red groupers, black groupers, emperor, to big eyed fish. The fishes weighed in at about 16-32 oz each. The activity was about $115 a person and an additional $50 per person to have the fishes cooked the next day. We divided our 7 fishes into two separate meals; lunch at Alba and lunch in our room. The fishes were either cut into sashimi, baked, steamed, or fried into fish and chips. We tried all 4 styles and our favorite was the sashimi and baked style. The fried fish and chips turned out a bit soggy instead of crispy. Dolphin Watch Our second excursion was 1.5 hours of dolphin watching from 4-5:30 pm. And although it was enjoyable it was also a bit of a disappointment. At $90 per person I was expecting to see more than a pod of 6 dolphins. We literally cruised around the hot sun with two other families sweating our butts off (bring lots of spf) and 3 staff for an hour until we spotted a pod. It wasn’t guaranteed we’d spot any dolphins, but considering this was a popular excursion we expected the staff to be more knowledgeable about the whereabouts of different pods. After 60 minutes of looking around in the vast ocean we finally spotted a pod going up and down for air. We pulled up closer and they started dance-swimming next to our boat. This was really amazing, but it only lasted a good 30 seconds. Overall within the 90 minutes we saw one pod of 6 dolphins for about a total of ten minutes including the minutes we had to slowly edge towards them as they were coming up for air and the 30 second swim-dance. We didn’t encounter more. I thought it was a waste of money and so did one other family on board. We are from California so we could have just gone to sea world to see more than 6 dolphins. I would not recommend this activity unless you’ve never encountered dolphins your whole life. Spa: Everyone I spoke to raved about the spa and wished they’d book more treatments. It doesn’t come cheap, but was worth every penny and more. We went on the second to last day to Iridium spa. The spa consisted of a few rooms shaped like pods overlooking the ocean. Once greeted we were taken to a sitting area to choose a treatment of our choice along with a nice iced ginger tea. We were given a look at the big iridium outdoor spa hot tub that is reserved for two people at a time for 45 min at an additional cost. We opted out of this. We befriended a couple that actually got this additional treatment for free from their butler. They had mentioned it was their wedding anniversary, but so did we. At our spa room we were taken to a changing room equipped with a shower for us to change. It was a nice touch the spa provided disposable undies. Before the massage the masseuse cleaned our feet then led us to our beds. Our massage beds were in the same room overlooking the water. Hubs got a 90 min lava massage and I opted for a 15 min express massage followed by the 60 min iridium facial. The massage and facial was super relaxing and the massage strokes were done at a nice firm pace and really got some of my knots out. The hubs was snoring half the time during his massage. After the treatment we were again led to the sitting area where we had another iced ginger tea while settling our spa bill. The entire treatment for the both of us cost close to $600 usd with a 10% service charge automatically tagged on. We saved a bit as hubs is a Marriott platinum member so I believe we were discounted 10% on treatments. Pricey yes, but worth it. Afterwards the staff called our butler to pick us up. Kids club: Throughout our stay we put our son into the children’s club twice. This was one of the cleanest and nicest kids club we’ve ever been in. Club hours open from 9-6 pm with a 12-1 pm break for staff. I think they take kids ages 2 and up. There were at least 3 staff at any time and they had many activities for the kids. My son enjoyed his stay at the club and it was never really at capacity. Each time he was there we only saw 1-3 other kids. He came back with art work and told us of science experiments he did with the teachers. And always with a big smile on his face. The first time you go to the kids club you’ll need one parent there to register. After that if you’re too lazy to do pick up or drop off you can ask the butler to do so. PCR-Covid: Before getting into the Maldives you’ll need to have a pcr test done at the maximum of 96 hours before arrival. We didn’t realize this needed a doctors signature since we were coming from Singapore when we were at check-in so we had to do this last minute at the airport. Check with your country of departure to see what the rules and procedures are. Once on the island and at the resort we were given a pcr test arranged by the butler 48 hours before departure from the Maldives. This was done seamlessly and took place in a small clinic room next to the drawing room on the resort. The pcr was a throat swab and one nostril swab with the nostril of your choosing. Results came out the next day and we were provided a digital copy as well as two hard copies each. We met two families with one year old babies and they said the babies had to do the same pcr swab. Gratuity & Staff attitude: I don’t think at any one point of the stay did I feel pressured into tipping. Every staff and member of the resort treated every guest with respect and enthusiasm without the pretense of expecting a little something back in return. For the most part I think a lot of guests don’t carry cash on them and it was a hassle to think daily if and when I should carry any. There were times I did happen to bring a $5 or $10 on me and would leave it at the breakfast table or give it to the in room dining delivery staff. For the most part every other meal had a tab except breakfast and already a service charge tagged on so anything more was additional tip given into a staff pool. We did decide to just add our platinum status 20% discount back as gratuity to the staff at our meals. But this is not necessary and only at your own discretion. I’m sure it’s not expected, but will be appreciated. We thought all the staff went above and beyond and felt like giving them a bit more. Special thanks to Nofy at Cargo for making a few of our restaurant dining experiences memorable for our little one. For housekeeping I put additional gratuity in cash in an envelope along with a note for our ho

We stayed at St.Regis Maldives before and reviewed it here, but I thought it would be worth a new review for our latest stay since our previous stays at StR Maldives were pre-covid. In most destinations we have a natural inclination to prefer trying new hotels but we are treated so well at StR that we keep coming back; this was our third stay in the last 4 years. Last time we split our time between StR and Waldorf Astoria but this time it was StR only even though in the Maldives of all places, there would be so many other nice hotels to try. What stands out the most at StR is service. We had the same butler as last time and service standards have not dropped one bit, there have been no apparent covid cutbacks, in fact now that we have a baby, service might be even better than it was before if that was at all possible. Multiple staff seem to know at all times where we dined the day before, what activities we did, etc. and are constantly in position to interact with guests on the resort. They must keep notes even from previous stays because I cannot imagine they would remember details of what happened a few years ago, but many of them do. I could make a very long list of how service is head and shoulders above, but here are some examples to give an idea: 1. It was my birthday during our stay and I received not one, not two, but three cakes during the day. One at the end of breakfast, another one as part of a special arrangement in the room, and the last one after dinner. 2. Our butler invited us to use Whatsapp so that he could be in touch with us during our stay and we casually mentioned that instead we use LINE with friends and relatives. To my surprise he went ahead and installed LINE himself on his phone (just for us!) and we used it during our stay to coordinate various things. 3. Our butler went to Male for a couple of days to visit his family during our stay. He came back with a gift for our daughter, we had mentioned to him that she likes books with vocabulary so that’s what he bought for her. The man has time off to visit his family, and he goes out of his way to shop for a guest – wow! 4. As a farewell gift the day before our departure, the hotel pastry chef prepared a very impressive chocolate arrangement with seaplane, manta ray, corals, and eatable frame with various pictures of our daughter during our stay. We had also mentioned the travelling lifestyle of our little explorer which the hotel noted in the farewell arrangements – how thoughtful. 5. We were missing a minor medical item during our stay and it was not available at the hotel, so our butler arranged for a friend to bring it on the first seaplane flight to StR the next morning. Admittedly it’s just one family’s opinion, but this is one of the best resorts where we have stayed anywhere in the world before, perhaps not entirely due to the destination but in terms of how we would rate the hotel and the staff itself. Given the service at StR Maldives, it is also one of the reasons why we sometimes do not hesitate to criticize other StR hotels when the service is nowhere near the StR standards (I am not one to exclusively post glowing reviews), not that I would expect most StR to match this one but they definitely set the bar exceedingly high. For this stay we stayed in two room types that we did not try before: the St.Regis Suite and the Beach Villa. The St.Regis Suite has more space indoors than the regular overwater villas and the living room can be closed off from the bedroom with a door in addition to having an extra half bath. The swimming pool and outdoor patio are more spacious as well. I was previously under the impression that the Beach Villas were of the same size as the regular overwater villas but it was noticeably smaller and the plunge pool was smaller as well. However the key is that not all BVs are created to be equal so room assignment would be important and being repeat guests probably helps. There were recently some storms which caused significant beach erosion on part of the island such that some beach villa guests would not get easy beach access because the drop off is so steep from the land in front of their villa down to the beach as shown in one of the pictures. I could easily imagine guests in these villas would not be ecstatic about the current situation, unless they were upgraded from Garden Villa then in that case it would be hard to complain about an upgrade. In contrast, in front of our BV the beach was smoothly going down into the sea so clearly one of the better ones. For anybody intending to stay in a BV it would be key to get #308-315 rather than #301-307. Every time we stayed at StR Maldives it’s been 10 nights, some people might consider it to be too long but we find there are plenty of activities to be fully occupied, previously as a couple, and now with a baby I continue to maintain that stance despite the completely different circumstances. We made frequent use of the kids club which we obviously did not in the past and we would have no concerns returning in the future because they have something to cater for small babies and older children as well. Unfortunately we do not have first hand experience at many other resorts in the Maldives to thoroughly compare. As much as I would like to try W, JW Marriott, Ritz Carlton, Fairmont, Raffles, Banyan Tree, Park Hyatt, etc., it is clear that StR is forcing us to come back and it’s the service element which creates lasting memories.

After spending a wonderful 6 days at the St Regis Vommuli with Mina as our point of contact we could not recommend and applaud his professionalism and hospitality more. No request was out of the question and it was all executed with perfection. If/ when we go back we hope to have Mina be the one taking care of us again

From the moment we arrived at the St. Regis we felt we could complete let go and all our needs were taken care of by our fantastic Buttler, Abanoub. He read our minds before we even were thinking of things. Everyday there was a surprise and another special treat. Other hotels may have nice beaches too. But what set the St. Regis apart is its staff. Always a smile and great conversation, being it with our waiter Ameen, and his colleagues or the crew on the fishing trip at sunset (a must do). We caught lots of fish and the restaurant prepared them for us the next day. We also enjoyed watching the full moon while eating at the Oriental, the Middle East food at Cargo and it’s relaxed atmosphere. And not to forget the incredible sea life we saw when snorkelling: Turtles, Reef Sharks, and Eagle Rays. An amazing trip, best we ever experienced.

Marvelous holiday in paradise. My partner and I spent my birthday and got engaged here. It was the best hotel choice. As usual, St Regis staff is charming and very friendly. Since the airport lounge, Aminath was so friendly and helpful. Our kind regards to the friendly waitresses Opi and Dina, as well to our attentive butler Abanoub. Illsiyar, the hostess at the restaurant, was the friendliest ever! She taught us some Russian words and we taught her some Spanish. We're already missing everyone here. Thank you all for your kindness ❤️ Pro tip - do not miss the spa!
