As you stroll along the resort’s edge, the vast Indian Ocean stirs a sense of awe deep within you. Like a pearl in its oyster, you’re embraced by the soothing ambience of Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa, Maldives.

Located just south of the equator, Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa, Maldives, is a 70-minute flight from Male International Airport and a five-minute boat ride from Gan International Airport on Addu Atoll.

Relaxing in your villa on a brilliant tropical afternoon, you enjoy the stunning view where the azure waters meet sapphire-coloured skies. Built on stilts in the resort's lagoon, the private haven is connected to the island by a timber walkway over waters teeming with marine life.

As night falls, you anticipate a sumptuous themed dinner, a dining experience served in one of the resort’s most secret locations. Be it a torch lit dinner under the banyan trees of the resort’s jungle, a spa dinner in the privacy of a meditation pavilion overlooking the ocean, a romantic in-villa evening or a dinner using local ingredients freshly prepared in the Chef’s Garden, you will be surprised with a memorable experience.

Tomorrow, perhaps you'll seek adventure with an expedition to the equator on a two-mast luxury yacht. For now, you long for the endless horizon views at the Villingili Golf Course and the magic of CHI, The Spa.

CHI, THE SPA

Pampering

for the body & soul

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.

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, ch’i or "Qi" is the universal life force that governs well-being and personal vitality. For good health to be maintained, it is believed that ch’i 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.
