Shangri-La's Villingili Resort & Spa

Addu Atoll | Deluxe

At Shangri-La Villingili Resort’s picture-perfect Maldives paradise, you can step out of time in a private haven away from the bustle of the world.

Tethered to the shore by elegant walkways, or nestled within the palm trees, each bungalow is a secluded hideaway. Bright, open-plan interiors zing with crisp whites, calm neutrals and banks of windows that fill the space with natural light. Sliding doors seamlessly extend the rooms onto sheltered terraces complete with private plunge pools, or steps leading into the crystal-clear lagoon.

While some villas are cosy nests-for-two, others are spacious, family-friendly dens ideal for spending relaxed time together. For guests who really want to push the boat out, there are overwater villas with a private spa, cinema room and dedicated villa host, creating an indulgent castaway experience.

Enjoy Mediterranean-inspired dishes in a quiet, romantic setting on the islands northern tip, or feast on a range of fresh, international cuisine in the innovative main restaurant. You can even go night fishing and help catch your own dinner!

If you can tear yourself away from the tranquillity of your villa, the resort offers an impressive range of on-site activities from golf to snorkelling, early morning yoga and indulgent spa treatments to coral planting and eco tours. There are family-friendly activities designed with younger guests in mind, including safari treks and a daily kids zone.

You're not restricted to resort life...Rather uniquely, the nearby island of Gan was used as a British naval base during WWII and it's possible to take a guided walk to learn about the history of the island, stopping at a number of significant ruins. In addition, unlike other Maldivian properties, the Shangri-La is close to a thriving local community. For an insight into local life take a cycling tour through the villages, accompanied by a resort guide.
