Towering Banyan Trees

This 30-acre island of towering Banyan trees, thousands of coconut palms, three natural lagoons and one-and-a-half miles of white sandy beaches showcases a different side to the Maldives. Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa sits in the far south of the Maldives, south of the equator. It even runs on its own island time so that guests can enjoy an extra hour of sunshine – a great example of the above-and-beyond Shangri-La service.
There’s a huge sense of space for total escapism. Rooms and facilities are dotted around the dense jungle and on the beachfront so that it never feels crowded, and each room comes with bicycles so it’s easy to get around. For dining, Javvu is the main restaurant, set along the shoreline and serving up buffet breakfasts and international dishes. Dr Ali’s is inspired by the travels of a local Maldivian doctor, with three distinctive rooms showcasing specialities from the South China Sea, the Indian Ocean and Middle East, while Fashala focuses on local produce from the ocean and neighbouring farms. Three bars include the sleek M-Lounge – the perfect beachfront venue to enjoy sundowners to the sound of chilled tunes. Other innovative features on the island range from the restorative CHI, The Spa, to the Maldives’ largest 9-hole golf course. This package includes for a 7 night All Inclusive stay with transfers. This offer is valid for travel in May, June & September 2019. Other dates and all regional departures available at a supplement.
