Ever wanted to sail the Maldives on a luxury yacht? Stay at private island resort The St. Regis Maldives and you can.
Located on Vommuli Island, the stunning resort has just unveiled its brand new 20-metre private yacht, named Norma.
Whether its diving experiences, overnight trips, family adventures or romantic getaways, guests can take to the high seas on Norma and enjoy four luxury-laden cabins featuring the very latest technology.
But don’t think you’ll have to lift a finger while on board, as the famed St. Regis hospitality stretches out to sea with the hotel’s legendary butler service. Ask for the sunset Champagne sabering ritual for a memorable way to underscore a blazing day exploring the picturesque Maldivian islands.
With space for up to eight-day guests, the Azimut flybridge 66 yacht is home to a crew of four, including a personal chef. The two-decked yacht also features a fully-equipped kitchen, a barbecue, and indoor sound system.
The name Norma was chosen as a tribute to the founder of St. Regis Hotels and Resorts, John Jacob Astor, who purchased the largest private yacht in the world more than 130 years ago and named it Nourmahal, after the princess Nourmahal, the heroine of Thomas Moore’s poem “Light of the Harem”. In 1910, he shortened the name to Norma.
The yacht costs £18,545 to charter for one night, or from £10,385 per day, up to eight hours. The overnight stay includes full board meals and is available for up to six guests.
