Shangri La’s Villingili Resort & Spa is in a unique location, south of the equator and away from the heavily resort-populated Maldivian atolls. It’s a wonderfully lush green island, with plenty of space and boasts some of the most unspoilt diving in the Maldives

The resort comprises of 134 villas, most of which feature their own private pool. Choose from villas directly on the beach; set slightly back amongst the foliage or built on stilts over the water. It’s worth upgrading to the Ocean View Villas, perched on stilts three metres above the ground with uninterrupted ocean views. But you can’t beat the ultra private, unique Tree House Villas, set on stilts amongst the treetops with panoramic views from the elevated infinity pool.

VIlingili island house reef is one of the most beautiful with many different varieties of underwater species. Its said to be one of the most striking and attractive house reef with many colorful corals and reef fish. For less experienced swimmers there are excellent snorkeling gardens close to the shoreline.
Swimming here is like frolicking in giant aquarium.

When to go It's sunshine all year round in the tropical Maldives. Showers don't last long and room rates lower during the wet season, from May to October.


Room to book  Pool VIlla Number One between lagoon and ocean is the most private one. 
For diving enthusiasts there are more than 25 dive sites teeming with marine life. There is also the dramatic 140m "British Loyalty" shipwreck with its hull resting at 33m just a half hour boat ride away from Villingili Island.
