五星級島嶼度假村糅合環保再用及當代設計理念,連同眾多美食場所打造完美度假天堂

Those in search for the next unparalleled des­ti­na­tion need look no fur­ther than The St Regis Mal­dives Vom­muli Re­sort. Nestled on a pri­vate is­land in a se­cluded Mal­di­vian atoll, the re­sort is just 40 min­utes away from the main Ve­lana In­ter­na­tional Air­port by sea­plane, where guests will find them­selves trans­ported to another world in the Dhaalu Atoll. Sur­rounded by lush rain­forests, the whitest of sands and azure blue wa­ters, this is the ul­ti­mate trop­i­cal get­away for cou­ples, fam­i­lies and even solo trav­ellers where the ul­ti­mate lux­ury is time. Time to con­nect with loved ones, to re­lax and recharge and to ap­pre­ci­ate the beau­ti­ful but frag­ile ecol­ogy that is the Mal­dives.

De­signed by WOW Ar­chi­tects’ Warner Wong, the re­sort fea­tures 77 is­land and over­wa­ter villa ac­com­mo­da­tions, each with a pri­vate pool. The over­wa­ter vil­las re­sem­ble manta rays with their grace­ful form and cephalic lobes – their var­i­ous parts ex­tend­ing out onto the wa­ters so that guests feel lit­er­ally as if they are at sea. Mean­while, the beach vil­las have been de­signed as mod­ern in­ter­pre­ta­tions of fishing huts. Both vil­las boast an in­te­rior de­sign reflecting the pat­terns and tex­tures that can be found on the is­land, with el­e­ments such as coral chan­de­liers, porce­lain lights, head­boards made of re­cy­cled glass beads, art­work cre­ated from sal­vaged wood as well as soft fab­ric mir­ror­ing the rip­ples of the lap­ping wa­ters to cre­ate an am­bi­ence that cre­ates an or­ganic syn­the­sis be­tween con­tem­po­rary liv­ing and is­land life.

All ac­com­mo­da­tions boast state-of-the-art fa­cil­i­ties such seam­less WiFi, iPad room con­trols and Bang & Olufsen BeoVi­sion tele­vi­sions, along­side thought­ful touches such as ro­man­tic

對於想體驗馬爾代夫群島精彩生活的旅客來說,The St Regis Mal­dives Vom­muli Re­sort度假酒店是你的不二之選。從馬爾他國際機場出發,只需40分鐘水上飛機航程即可抵達坐落於僻靜環礁的酒店。這個被郁蔥的熱帶叢林、潔白細膩的沙灘以及碧綠瀉湖環繞的達魯環礁世外桃源能為任何對象帶來愉悅享受,不論是浪漫愛侶、大家庭或獨遊旅客也可在此盡享精彩時刻。馬爾代夫的生態系統漸趨脆弱,快把握機會與你的摯愛一同細賞這片美麗的土地吧。

來自WOW Ar­chi­tect­s的Warner Wong負責度假村的建築設計,島嶼上設有77棟別墅和包含私人泳池的水上屋,其設計概念以蝠魟的優雅動態為靈感,佈局猶如在水面上延伸的角垂,成功為賓客帶來置身海洋的感覺。另外,沙灘別墅則以現代化的時尚漁舍為主題。為表達度假村對人和大自然的重視,室內設計一貫採用島嶼上現有的材料,當中包括珊瑚石吊燈、陶瓷燈、再造玻璃珠床板、廢棄木材手工藝品和流水波紋般的輕柔布藝等不同圖案設計和材質,在當代生活和小島文化之間達致和諧的平衡。

度假村配備一系列前衛設施,無縫WiFi、iPad房間控制系統及Bang & Olufsen的BeoVi­sion電視均能為你帶來簡單便捷的服務。充滿浪漫氣息的涼亭沙灘床和水吊床及躺椅同時

Fit­ness buffs can rest as­sured as the re­sort is home to an ex­pan­sive fit­ness cen­tre, anti­grav­ity yoga stu­dio and ten­nis courts. In ad­di­tion, the Vom­muli Dive and Wa­ter Sports Cen­tre of­fers tu­ition and equip­ment for ex­plor­ing the won­ders of the deep on the pri­vate house reef. Those look­ing for some pam­per­ing will be in heaven at the Irid­ium Spa, fa­mous for its Blue Hole Pool that repli­cates the deep sink holes of­ten found in the reefs. This is the largest salt­wa­ter hy­drother­apy pool in the Mal­dives, where heated sea­wa­ter and whirlpool jets will soothe your mind and body.

The is­land’s other no­table de­sign con­cepts in­clude the Whale Bar – the best place to chill and re­lax dur­ing sun­set - that re­flects the shape of a whale shark. In­side is a mu­ral etched into the wooden ceil­ing in­cor­po­rat­ing the tech­niques of a tra­di­tional Mal­di­vian art form known as py­rog­ra­phy. It ef­fec­tively tells the story of the is­land’s owner and his son who built the re­sort on Vom­muli to cel­e­brate its nat­u­ral beauty.

De­sign aside, the St Regis Mal­dives Vom­muli Re­sort boasts an ar­ray of spec­tac­u­lar din­ing out­lets to de­light every foodie. From Ital­ian cui­sine at sig­na­ture restau­rant Alba and piz­zas at fam­ily-friendly Crust, to Asian de­lights at Ori­en­tale, gourmet street food at pop-up diner Cargo, or the five-course de­gus­ta­tion menu at De­can­ter matched with wine, one is truly spoilt for choice. //

島嶼上最龐大的標誌建築The Whale Bar臨摹鯨鯊的樣態,是個欣賞夕陽餘暉的宜人空間。當地工匠和兒子也受邀為Vom­muli度假村的景觀設計施展傳統的施工方法,以烙畫工藝打造蝕刻木材天花板正是其一例子。

除出眾的設計特色外,St Regis Mal­dives Vom­muli Re­sort度假酒店更提供全面豐富的用餐場所,當中包括適合一家大小的Crust、意大利餐廳Alba、亞洲餐廳Ori­en­tale及輕便餐館Cargo。若你希望一嚐共設五道菜式的精選套餐,不妨到供應特別的葡萄酒晚餐的De­can­te酒窖享受一番。//
