Set amidst sandy beaches and lush tropical foliage, Shangri-La's Villingili Resort and Spa is a unique all-villa property set in a spacious, boutique-style environment. Accommodations include private ocean retreats and tropical treehouse villas, while a selection of fine-dining choices, innovative spa treatments and plenty of little extra luxuries make it the ultimate island retreat.
Accommodation at Shangri-La's Villingili Resort & Spa is available in five distinct styles that set the resort apart from other destinations in the Maldives. Each is equipped with two iPods and a docking station and luxurious bathroom amenities. Water villas have large two-tier terraces with sun loungers and a day bed, and steps that lead directly into the sea. Many are just a few metres from the island's coral reefs.
Each evening at Shangri-La's Villingili Resort & Spa, guests are given a list of activities for the following day. From bike rides to nearby Gan, snorkelling trips and Pilates classes on the beach, there's no shortage of things to do. The swimming pool is the perfect place to relax, as is the white-sand beach, with the perfect end to the day being a trip to the stunning spa.
Guests at Shangri-La's Villingili Resort can dine on a varied menu at Javvu, which also hosts themed nights such as beach barbecues, or discover the freshest catches from the ocean at a venue overlooking the sea. Dr Ali's is a collection of three restaurants serving Indian, Chinese and Maldivian dishes in a secluded beachside setting. Even breakfast is an indulgent affair, with a large buffet as well as an a la carte menu.
