Health & Leisure

Villingili Maldives Spa Resort enjoys ample space and provides many possibilities for a healthy start to the day. Take a walk through the resort's jungle, dive in the lagoon, jog along the beach, follow one of the marked jogging trails or exercise at the well-equipped gym. By day, energetic guests, able to drag themselves away from the beach can enjoy waterborne activities like wave-surfing, scuba-diving, kayaking, sailing, deep-sea fishing, or a cruise on a luxury yacht for lunch on the equator.

Chi, The Spa

CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La draws inspiration from the origins of the Shangri-La legend, a place of personal peace, enchantment and well-being.

This secluded sanctuary is located in its own spa village within the resort, with spacious individual treatment villas offering "spa-within-a-spa" environments.  There is also a unique yoga pavilion overlooking the Indian Ocean, and individual treatment villas with private gardens and steam rooms, a changing room and a shower.  The spa menu offers a selection of Asian massages and Indian Ayurvedic treatments, alongside locally inspired treatments and specific well-being programmes.

In traditional Chinese philosophy, "chi" or "Qi" is the universal life force that governs well-being and personal vitality.  For people to maintain good health, it is believed that "chi" must flow freely within the body and, when blocked, "dis-ease" and illness follow.  Movement is therefore a key element in releasing blockages.  Body massage, exercise, stretching, hydrotherapy, and movement of the mind through relaxation and meditation combine to assist the body's natural renewal and form the basis of the CHI spa philosophy.

Kid's Activities

ocated in the Village, The Adventure Zone for children is the place to find toys, educational activities and lots of land and beach-based activities to ensure a fun-filled vacation for the children. We welcome our younger guests aged between four and twelve from 9am until 7pm for plenty of fun and games.

Water Sports Activities

The water, of course, allows for all kinds of activities such as wave-surfing, kayaking, windsurfing, sailing or deep-sea fishing. Flat seas and dependable trade winds guarantee ideal conditions for sailing and windsurfing. For diving enthusiasts, there are more than 25 dive sites teeming with marine life, including the dramatic 140-metre British Loyalty shipwreck with its hull resting at 33 metres, just a half-hour boat ride away from Villingili Island.

Weddings

Leave the planning to the resort as our dedicated team creates memories to last a lifetime. Be it an intimate dinner with special friends or a grand occasion with imported entertainment, every detail will be taken care of with meticulous attention to detail.
