I don’t have enough good to say about this place. My husband and I elected to spend our honeymoon, and 17th anniversary (of having met) at the Shangri-La resort, on Villingili Island in the Maldives. It has been near-perfect. We’ve been able to snorkel, try our hand at diving, parasail, plant coral, spy sea turtles, watch dolphins do amazing acrobatics,...

We have just returned from our short stay at Shangri-La's Villingili Resort and we could not be happier with our time there. The natural beauty of the island was only surpassed by the friendliness of the staff. We wish to personally thank Aagib Ahmed for making our stay perfect.

As I am an quite picky traveller (this hotel was my third choice after I had already cancelled two due to different reasons) I got very good, if a little bit slow service via e-mail before our trip.

Dear Guest I love your description of calling the resort “Palace on Water”. It’s so fitting, as our water villas are one of the largest in all of Maldives. Our views are breathtaking and yet diverse. From the villas, guests can see the turquoise-blue lagoons, panoramic sunsets to the lush green jungles and the gorgeous golf course. It’s the perfect...

Overall great experience and adventure at this resort and we took advantage of mostly all the activities that were free. It was great moving around the 3KM island by beach cruisers (bicycles at each villa) to explore the eco-life and beaches and 9-hole golf course. The water activities are plenty and the underwater life is still well preserved. It was...
