Extravagance. We all love it once in a while. Ok, fine - twice in a while. But The St. Regis Maldives resort has just taken things to the next level.
Guests of the private island can now be collected from the airport and dropped at the hotel – by yacht. Yes, seriously.
St. Regis is the only hotel that has the possibility of doing this, and they've seized the opportunity by welcoming new, luxury 20-metre yacht Norma to the family. Hey, Norma!
Once settled in the hotel, up to six guests are able to charter Norms (too far?) for a day or overnight trip during their holiday. Think exploring the tropical Maldivian Islands before enjoying tailored fine-dining at sunset. Dreamy.
Now, for the reality part: Norma has a starting rate of Dhs7,162 per hour, with a minimum of four hours private hire. And you're looking at a similar price for the fee of aiport collection.
But you can't put a price on happiness, right?
