Panoramic Views

At the Whale Bar, our overwater lounge, we invite guests to partake of delectable tapas and locally sourced seafood as well as hand-selected wines and spirits while enjoying panoramic views of the Indian Ocean and our private coral reef.

A Celebration of the Maldives

A tour de force of marine-inspired architecture, The Whale Bar’s distinctive shape recalls the majestic whale shark. This whimsical but elegant retreat is elevated by light oak interiors, a refined bar, and a softly lit neutral palette. The venue’s cynosure, our traditional St. Regis mural, adorns the ceiling. A pyrographic masterpiece on wood by renowned artist Maya Burman, the installation depicts a father and son discovering a paradise of corals, fish, and plankton—a celebration of the Maldives' vibrant sea life. Our distinctive lounge opens directly onto an open-air terrace, where plush sofas and armchairs invite guests to admire seductive views of the sea and Vommuli Island’s immaculate reef.
