What we say

Shangri La\'s Vilingili Resort and Spa Maldives

Situated in the Addu Atoll, Shangri La's Vilingili Resort and Spa is the first luxury boutique-style resort In the Maldives to be located south of the equator. Travel here and get a certificate with your name on it for crossing the equator!

How awesome is that?

The Hi-Life!

There's also a Pro Shop, refreshments and golf concierge at the Golf Club House! Can it be any fancier? ...

The resort is also home to two International Tennis Federation-grade courts. Take some lessons while on holiday; it's awesome!

And here's your chance to try something different- the Golf Course at the resort is top-notch. Seven and a half hectares of pure golfing bliss awaits you.
Your own sanctuary..

With seven different categories on offer, you'll be spoilt for choice. Fantastic decor and unparalleled views in addition to every imaginable luxury amenity is available here. Even the air-conditioning switches off automatically when you open the doors and windows of your villa!

The accommodation is the last word in luxury and privacy.

So much to do.. So little time

And it gets better! A 17 km road allows you to cycle to five neighboring islands. How cool is that! Check out the Group Bicycle Tour of the Addu Atoll that takes you to these islands and allows you to visit historic sites, chat with the locals, buy some souvenirs and relax in a cafe or two.

The Discover Addu Tour is a speedboat ride that pretty much does the same as the bicycle tour. So if tiring out your legs is not your 'thing' opt for this.
Although Maldives is the flattest land in the country, Shangri La's Vilingili is home to the highest peak in the country at 5.1 meters - Mount Vilingili. Climb the mountain and get a certificate!

More mainstream activities on offer include the Guided Snorkel Exploration, Guided House Reef Snorkeling, Turtle Quest Snorkeling, Dolphin Cruise, Night Fishing and more.

There are some great diving opportunities available here. The coral reefs are amazing and teeming with Manta Rays, Spinner Dolphins and Green Turtles. A must-see is also the British Loyalty shipwreck.

If you have the means, sail on the luxury Horizon Yacht and savour a gourmet lunch complemented by fine wines.

Live the life!

A world of flavours..

Themed nights are the rave at the resort. From Arabian Nights to Vilingili Ocean Treasures Barbeque and the Vietnamese flavors set menu, it's a world of tastes unraveling for your pleasure.

The food is just sublime at the resort. Dr. Ali's restaurant serves yummy seafood from the Indian ocean, the South China sea and the Arabian Gulf: where have you ever heard of such luxuries? The Fashala restaurant also offers fantastic seafood while Javvu is a nice place to relax and grab a bite by the pool.

The Dining by Design option allows guests to dine in varying locations. The Chef's Garden dining is great. See the freshest produce picked and cooked into delightful dishes and sit down in the midst of the beautiful garden to enjoy the fare.

Children aren't forgotten here. 4-6 year olds have the Cool Zone while kids under 4 can also be a part of its activities with parental supervision.
Connect with your inner-self..

Moms and dads usually drop the kids off here at head off to the Spa, 'Chi' where it's is all about personal peace, wellbeing and enchantment. Many of the treatments at the spa utilize the island's natural botanical and herbal products. The spa also offers holistic experiences like yoga and meditation to ease the mind and body.
