A stylish all-villa resort, popular with honeymooners and couples, located in the quieter Addu Atoll in the far south of the Maldives. Excellent snorkelling and also fabulous for surfing, sailing and kite surfing. Villingili also has Maldives first 9-hole golf course! The resort has even moved its clocks forward one hour to give guests an extra hour of daylight!
Shangri-La's Villingili Resort is the definition of luxury where Maldives holiday experiences are tailored to individual guests. Located just south of the equator, this villa-only resort is surrounded by a coral reef and has 2kms of white sand beaches and 6kms of coastline.
The resort comprises 132 spacious villas, from sixty private water villas and eight unique tropical tree houses to over thirty pool villas and some 25 beachside residences. Whichever villa you choose, you are assured of breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean. All villas feature a wealth of luxurious amenities, expansive sundecks, patios, daybeds and lounge areas, as well as complimentary internet access, Bose sound system, ipod dock and LCD TV.
Three restaurants at Shangri-La's Villingili offer exquisite dining options. Javvu, the resort's main restaurant is located poolside and offers international cuisine; Fashala on the north coast provides sumptuous seafood; while Dr Ali's has Arabic, Indian and Cantonese-inspired flavours. Alternatively, enjoy a custom-made Dine by Design experience at the location of your choice... on the equator perhaps? Three bars and lounges provide the perfect options for sunset cocktails or relaxing with your favourite tipple!
