We spent our honeymoon at Shangri La's Villingili resort in January 2015 and had a perfect week on the Maldives. We chose an Overwater Villa in the Whispering Palm section of the resort which has the benefit of the coral reef with loads of beautiful fishes just few meters of the balcony. The resort staff was very friendly and helpful....

It was an amazing trip! The hotel has all the desired activities. The only problem would be access amount of travel, in the propeller plane: From Male airport to Gan. The propeller is noisy and disturbing. Also, there could be more activities like, submarines!!!!!! (that'll be cool!)

The resort is beautiful with very nice, friendly and helpful stuff. The arrival and departure process was professional, very well organized. The villas are clean and comfortable. The beach and the pool area is really beautiful. Breakfast is fantastic. The resort provides every room with its own bicycles, which is very useful in the island. Amazing resort!

after going through a list of different resorts to choose from for my Maldives stay, we agreed upon SHangri La and I must say our decision was right. The resort is the one of the biggest in maldives and offers great services. We stayed in Water Villa and it was huge. Though it didn't have a pool, all the other...

Reviewed 20 January 2015 via mobile

The best way to describe our 6-night stay is "incomplete." While we loved the food and the scenery, the service we received was quite inadequate. Each villa (we stayed in a two-bedroom villa) was supposed to have an assigned host to take care of their daily needs and itinerary which should include suggesting activities and taking care of logistics. Aside...
