Vilingili Island   Addu Atoll   Villingili Island   Maldives

Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort and Spa sits on Villingili Island in the Maldives’ Addu Atoll. The resort is reached via a 70-minute private jet flight from Malé and a boat ride from Gan Airport on Addu Atoll.

The Maldives’ first south-of-the-equator luxury resort, Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort and Spa  Traditionally, sailors crossing the equator for the first time were subject to hazardous initiation rites, including getting cast overboard anddragged beside their ship. No such obligation exists for today’s tourists, but even if it did, the chance to visit Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort and Spa would make any hardship well worthwhile.

For starters, Villingili occupies its own island. The picturesque coastline and pristine beaches surround lush vegetation, natural lagoons, and nature trails. Accommodation is all-villa, with private ocean retreats and tree house villas commanding superb views.

Guests can even take a cruise to the equator – only with lunch provided
