Excellent resort and worth every penny. Check-in process was seamless and easy. Stayed in a water villa; very spacious, well maintained and access straight to the house reef. The island is fairly big and the bicycles provided were an added bonus for us to explore. Food was good, with a few choices of restaurant spread across the island. All the...

We had undergone extensive research when planning our holiday to the Maldives and found that the positive reviews and feedback was perfectly aligned with our experience.

The best decision we had in that holiday was to expand our stay in Shangri-La's Villingili Resort from 2 to 4 nights! We enjoyed an amazing villa with private pool and separate living room. The decoration and finishing of the villa were superb and the report in general was so comforting especially with the very well trained staff.

I believe there is only one negative preventing this resort from reaching top 5 on Trip Advisor and that is the additional domestic flight transfer.

They say, its not about the journey, its about the destination. Shangri-la Maldives is one good example.
