My recent stay to Villingili was amazing, beyond our expectations. This was our 5 visit to Maldives and 1st time to Shangri-la. The service was spot on, the staff super friendly, but the most amazing thing was the quality of food. Its crazy to imagine that the chefs can produce such high standards in the most remote location I have...

From New York City, this is one of the longest trip I ever made, and unless you can travel in style (business), brace yourself for some back aches. But if you opted of spending the small fortune that it takes to reach Vilingili and stay at Shangri-La resort, then you might as well go all the way. This is the...

We decided to stay at Shangri-La Villingili for our Honeymoon after doing some research on Trip Advisor and Booking.com. Though we did get a good deal through the Golden Cage offer at the hotel's website, the experience was not pleasant and disappointing in many levels. It is most disappointing to have been completely ignored by hotel management after sharing our...

The best service I have ever experienced in a hotel and breathtaking hotel and beaches. The only inconvenience was that the Internet was very slow and with poor signal. Expensive hotel but worth every penny.
