Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa

There are many places offering you exquisite luxury beside the sea. Villingili’s villas, however, take you a step further – out into the turquoise waters of a tropical lagoon.

You amble along the timber walkway, from your private water villa, on your way to breakfast. Beneath your feet is a gloriously serene lagoon on the edge of the Indian Ocean. You look down to see shoals of tiny, multi-coloured fish darting through the shallows under the walkway.

Make Villingili part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to The Maldives and you’ll be lulled to sleep every night by the quiet whisper of the waves beneath your villa, and welcomed in the morning by an uninterrupted view of the sun twinkling on the lagoon, from your private balcony.

You’ll also be able to look forward to a day filled with sunbathing, diving, snorkelling, playing golf, being pampered in a spa, cruising in a two-masted yacht…
