Shangri-La's Villingili Resort & Spa


Optional all in

There are few places that define paradise like Shangri-La's Villingili Resort & Spa. Set on a private island in the Addu Atoll, this is the ultimate hideaway. Uniquely, the resort has moved its clocks one hour ahead, optimising daylight hours and ensuring a beautiful late sunset. You can even enjoy an unforgettable lunch on the equator aboard one of the hotel’s luxury yachts or a game of golf at the only 9-hole course in the Maldives. Choose from a stunning water villa, set over the incredibly turquoise ocean below, or a more private abode within the tropical jungle. Despite the islands secluded nature there are still three restaurants, three bars and an assortment of facilities and services available, including retail shops, a business centre and child care.

Sovereign does not accept children under the age of 13 in the water villa or over water categories.

A range of hotel child prices applies to ages 0-2 & 3-11 years.
