Our Verdict

Discover the Maldives’s first luxury resort south of the equator. Located in the south east of Addu Atoll, Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa is a Maldives resort like no other. At three kilometres long, it encompasses 17,000 coconut trees, banyan trees and other lush vegetation, creating a haven of peace and tranquillity. No less than three natural lagoons are linked to the island, which three nature trails snake across. Guests can explore the island by bicycle and, unlike anywhere else in the Maldives; they can also cross a private bridge to explore a neighbouring island.

Several of the islands in the area are linked by causeways and bridges which make it easy for more adventurous guests to explore. However, there’s plenty at the resort to entertain, inspire, and indulge everyone. This includes the sumptuous spa, diving experiences, snorkelling, the 9-hole golf course and day excursions. More than 25 dive sites lie in the surrounding area including the shipwreck of the British Loyalty. The former British Royal Air Force base of Gan also makes for a fascinating day trip, as well as the surrounding islands linked by causeways.
The luxurious villas, equipped with elegant furnishings and modern amenities includes tropical tree-houses and over-water villas. Tour packages for Maldives rarely contain so many endless opportunities for exploration as here in Addu Atoll.
