I am Shangri-La Villingili Resort & Spa.  I am a tropical all- villa sanctuary, perched on my own private island in the vast Indian Ocean. I am known for spoiling my guests with endless recreational activities, unforgettable dining experiences and rejuvenating spa treatments. With an abundance of palm trees, soft and sandy white beaches, surrounded by azure waters, I am the epitome of paradise. Whether you want to laze in the tropical sun on your open-air terrace, dive into the turquoise lagoon in search of sea turtles or spoil your taste buds at all six of my restaurants & bars, let me be the first to say you choose what you want to all day, every day.



Shangri-La Villingili consists of beaches and the big blue ocean, so take your pick and choose one of my many soft white beaches for the afternoon or go jump off your private deck into the azure blue water to swim with the occasional passing Monterey.

In the mood for adventure? Shangri-La Villingili Resort & Spa offers a slew of activities which might tickle your fancy. From scuba diving and snorkeling to glass bottom boat cruises, to even meeting the Coconut Climbers. Our personal favorite is the afternoon Dolphin Cruise. Head out into the ocean in the late afternoon in search for many resident spinner dolphins as the sun begins to set. It is magical.

Take in the property by bike. Ride over the turquoise waters on timber walkways leading to the stunning water villas or venture into the palmy groves where a main nature trail bisects the island for a very peaceful afternoon ride.

Come unwind in the signature Chi, The Spa. Shangri-La Villingili Resort & Spa offers an extensive menu of Spa treatments, the staff will go above and beyond to make sure you return to your room relaxed and rejuvenated.



The highest peak of the entire Maldives is here on the island. Mt. Villingili stands at an “enormous” 36.7 feet above sea level. It is right on the Golf Course and is a spot for one of their famous Dine by Design.

To enhance your experience on the island, Shangri-La Villingili Resort & Spa has moved their clocks one hour ahead. This means you can enjoy an additional hour of daylight. Indulge with a sundowner in the M – Lounge while listening to the DJ and the crushing waves.

Beyond the daily activities, there are also a few cultural experiences available ranging from historical and cultural tours to nature and agricultural excursions.
