Shangri-La stands for legendary hospitality across the world. Inspired by the fabled land featured in James Hilton‘s 1933 novel, Lost Horizon, the name Shangri-La encapsulates the serenity and service for which its hotels and resorts are renowned worldwide. Shangri-La‘s Villingili Resort & Spa in the Maldives is the definition of luxury, a place where all experiences are tailored to suit your passions.
Located just south of the equator, the Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa is a 70 minute flight from Malé International Airport and an eightminute boat ride from Gan Airport on Addu Atoll. Surrounded by a striking coral reef, this boutique-style, all-villa resort is home to more than 17,000 coconut trees, more than six kilometres of picturesque coastline and 2 kilometres of white sandy beaches.
The resort comprises 132 tranquil villas in seven distinct styles from private water villas and tropical tree houses to pool villas and beachside residences. All villas feature a myriad of luxurious amenities and expansive layouts with spacious sundecks, patios, daybeds and lounge areas. The experienced staff at Shangri- La’s Villingili Resort & Spa, including the helpful island host, cater to the needs of guests by providing an extensive range of services and facilities. Delight in tropical refinement at its very best, with an uncompromising selection of on-island dining destinations from which to choose.
Treat yourself to sumptuous gastronomic experiences at the three restaurants or enjoy a custom-made Dine by Design experience at the outdoor location of your choice, be it a memorable lunch on the equator aboard the resort’s luxury yacht or a romantic dinner in the jungle. Unforgettable experiences await at these extraordinarily beautiful grounds. Indulge in tranquillity at CHI, The Spa, explore the luscious tropical forest, play a round at the only ninehole golf course in the Maldives or embark on an ocean adventure through numerous water sports. To enhance your experience on the island, clocks on Villingili Island have been moved one hour ahead. You can enjoy an additional hour of daylight – the perfect chance to indulge with a sundowner at M lounge while listening to the beats of the DJ to set the mood for the evening.
