My family and I have stayed at St. Regis hotels before but we’ve never had a butler like this before, Akram was the best. The service he and the rest of the staff provided was incomparable. The head chef Sunil Dutt and his staff made a breakfast item that wasn’t on the menu for my daughter, as it was our last day. The executive chef Ashish made us meals completely off the menu every time we went to Orientale. It was one of the best experiences ever, and again their service was amazing. They go above and beyond and provide everything you ask for.
The over water villas have an amazing view, the main beach is white sand and clear blue water. Just an amazing week. Service was just over the top. They even had a cake, the room decorated for my wife’s birthday. Just awesome stay.

My husband and I decided to stay at the St Regis for 8 days in the beginning of June 2021. We chose this specific report bc of its isolated location, the strict Covid protocols they have implemented and the fact that St Regis service is beyond amazing.

We cannot even put down a highlight of the trip because there are so many! We chose the CIP option and were picked up directly from the plane and driven by private car service to a lounge where we could relax while the staff handled visas/baggage etc. Since our plane was scheduled to leave shortly we did not have a chance to relax in the St Regis lounge upon arrival but did stay for a bit during the departure - the food and drinks were fabulous!

Once at the island we were greeted by our butler - Alit - who managed everything for us: dinner reservations, life jackets, fresh tropical fruit, lattes, anything we could think of! And to top it off - he managed to secure us an outstanding ocean villa that had views of BOTH sunrise and sunset!

We did manage to change rooms during our stay to a beachfront villa and that was just beautiful - from the architecture, to the greenery, the outdoor showers, to your own private beach (since you barely saw anyone) - this was a great room!

The little touches the St Regis provides were fantastic as well: hats, slippers, fruit platters, little desserts, a small cake for our anniversary, non-alcoholic champagne - seriously, it’s going to be VERY hard to top this vacay.

BRUNCH. That’s all I have to say. AMAZING, DELICIOUS, BEYOND!!!! My husband and I would show up early, enjoy our breakfast and just sip tea/juice and read books while enjoying the views. Do try the duck and waffles, poached eggs w Hollandaise, tropical fruits, pastries to die for and their yummy juices!

Shout out to Jenif, Ameen, Alex, Mentino for their gracious service every morning and to Chef S. Dutt for the unbelievable spread!

Food was great at all the restaurants - We especially loved the poke and ceviche at Alba and the chef’s own specials he created for us at Orientale - major kudos to Chef Ashish for his culinary genius and creativity and Pina for her service!

And thank you to Shafeeu for (finally) getting me to snorkel!

We’ve been to the Maldives before and many high end resorts all around the world, but the experience, beauty and service here was simply OUTSTANDING! THANK YOU!

We spent 10 nights at the St Regis Maldives for our honeymoon. I cannot say enough about the staff, facilities, activities and overall environment of the resort. From the moment we landed in Male and we’re met by the airport Butlers we felt “taken care of” by some of the nicest people we have encountered when traveling.

After a brief stop in the St Regis lounge, where were offered drinks and snacks, we took a 40min seaplane to the resort. We were greeted by the manager and two other staff members who welcomed us with coconut water and a cool towel. For the next 10 days, we stayed at a sunset overwater room with Shamiu as our Butler. Shamiu was an amazing host who made our stay very special, always looking to help coordinate activities and he had made reservations for dinner each night before we arrived. He was thoughtful and attentive!

We enjoyed breakfast each morning at Alba with Pina, Erni, Mohammed among others. The breakfast was a fantastic way to start each morning, complete with prosecco and bloody mary’s if desired. The belgian waffles and daily pastries were great. All restaurants were good, with the Whale Bar (steak and seafood) and Oriental(japanese and chinese) being our favorites. At almost every meal, staff members were checking in to ensure everything was good and if we needed anything, it was a nice touch to see so many people interested to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. Sunset cocktails at the whale bar each night was a great ritual.

The snorkeling off the beach was amazing with turtles, rays, sharks (black tip reef), and hundreds of colorful fish. We enjoyed exploring the island by bike and often chose to ride to meals and activities, though a “buggy” was always a phone call away. We did the private island picnic and it was as amazing as it sounds, it’s expensive (we revived as a wedding gift from friends) but it truly was a once in a lifetime experience! We did the dolphin excursion and saw some dolphins, which was fun.

The spa at the resort was unbelievable with fantastic facilities and excellent masseuses. We would highly recommend the Iridium massage. All in all, we had very high expectations and the St Regis Maldives exceeded them.

If/when we have the chance to travel so far again, we will look forward to returning!!

Room tip: Snorkeling off the beach, breakfast at Alba, sunset cocktails, massage at the spa

Villa preference: No one stays in the garden villas, which is why they only have 4. It’s in the middle of the island and you don’t see anything. You didn’t travel all the way to Maldives to stay in the garden villa. If you want overwater, make sure you book a SUNSET overwater villa or the St Regis overwater villa (assuming 2 adults in your party). These offer maximum privacy as the majority of them are facing the ocean. The regular overwater villas may end up indirectly facing each other or face the beachfront villas. As far as the beachfront villas, I can see why they are considered a higher category than the overwaters. Each comes with a sizable private beach in front of the villa and you can just walk right into the water, which is arguably a big preference for those who cannot swim. The overwater villas are quite deep, especially during high tide so life vest or knowing how to swim, is highly recommended.

Activities: Stand up paddleboard and kayaking is free of charge, 1 hour per day. Glass-bottom kayaking costs $60/hr and may be worth it if you are not a snorkeler. Just beware that they have 2 glass bottom kayaks and only one of them has comfortable glass seats in it. The other one is just a big glass boat and hurts after 20 minutes of no back support. We also tried the shared Maldivian sunset fishing at $115 / person and it was totally worth it. Even though I didn’t catch any fish, I saw the most mesmerizing sunset on this 2 hour excursion. For an extra $50, you can keep the fish and eat it at Alba restaurant the next day, either for lunch or for dinner. If you didn’t catch any fish, the staff working there may just give you the fish they caught so that you can do the $50 eat option.

Special shoutout to Umar, our butler during our stay. Each room comes with a bottle of champagne as the welcome amenity and he let us saber it on our deck! How cool is that?! He also replenished the fruit basket on a daily basis as well as 15 bottles of Schweppes water in our room daily. I am quite impressed with how tech savvy St Regis Maldives is. You scan a QR code instantly adds your butler’s contact info into Whatsapp. No more guessing game / fussing around with figuring out the correct country code / prefix to include to get the contact to show up. IMO, Whatsapp is the most efficient method of communicating with the butler. The longest I have ever had to wait for a reply was a mere 5 minutes. Lost my key card? No problem, just message Umar and replacement card arrives in 10 minutes. Out of TP, message Umar and housekeeping arrives in 15.

We got married in 2020 and as for everyone else, the entire year was a nightmare and the process of cancelling, rescheduling, booking, rebooking our special day left us emotionally traumatized. Eventually, we were able to celebrate our special day intimately, but postponed our honeymoon until after being vaccinated and travelling internationally became feasible. So it wasn't until 2 planes, 1 shuttle, 1 seaplane and basically 30 hours later were we finally able to breathe a sigh of relief when we touched down and stepped foot on the beautiful sands of St. Regis Vommuli.

And we were so fortunate to be greeted by such an amazing, sweet and knowledgeable butler, Niti. From the second we met her, we immediately felt at home and we couldn't wipe the smiles off our faces, even in our sleep.. Niti was a huge part in making our honeymoon so memorable and one of the happiest weeks of our lives. She helped plan so many surprises and moved mountains for us to make sure it all turned out as romantic as possible! And everything was better than we could have ever imagined. Dinner by candlelight on the beach (Vommuli Magic) was still our most favorite thing of the entire trip cause we got to enjoy the beach, just us and soak it all in. I wanted to surprise my husband with this special treat, also as a belated birthday celebration, and Niti made sure that this worked out perfectly. The food on the island was amazing, but something about Chef Hendry's dinner that night.... best meal of our lives! And Bagus was such a joy to have as our server/photographer that night.

Now, travelling during the rainy season, we knew the weather was out of anyone's control and anything could happen. Thank goodness it was beautiful and our days started off with beautiful sunrises and ended with the most unreal sunsets. However, the wind was strong and the waters were choppy so some of our activities were cancelled. Niti was on top of our entire schedule, notified us as soon as she knew activities were being cancelled due to weather conditions and rescheduled our activities and reservations to however we wanted. Niti has some magic and made everything we wanted to happen, happen.

We dream of returning to the Maldives, but until then, we will forever cherish the new friends we made, relive our trip through videos/memories and reflect on fond memories from this honeymoon of a lifetime.

Room tip: Honeymooners HAVE TO book the overwater villas. Families should book the beach villas.

Greetings from The St Regis Maldives

Thank You for leaving us a wonderful review here on TripAdvisor.

Finally, the dreamy honeymoon celebration came true.
I could not agree more taking into consideration the unusual situation we are all in right now I can imagine how emotionally dreadful was it changing and cancelling holiday plans.

We thank you for choosing The St Regis Maldives as your perfect location to celebrate.

Your review puts smiles on our faces knowing that we curated an exquisite experience which you will cherish for a lifetime.

Thank you for acknowledging the amazing efforts of our hosts especially your butler Niti, Chef Hendry and Bagus. Truly the true gems of the island.

We dream of your return to our little piece of paradise on your next trip.
