The natural, dense vegetation of Villingili sets it apart from many other Maldives resort islands. The three-kilometre-long island has 12 hectares of lush foliage, towering banyan trees, 17,000 coconut palms, 45 species of plants, 3 natural lagoons and nature trails for guests to explore.
Furthermore, there is excellent snorkelling around the island for enjoyment of abundant underwater beauty and encounters with colourful aquatic residents.
In line with our commitment to biodiversity conservation, the group launched Sanctuary, Shangri-La's Care for Nature Project.
At Shangri-La's Villingili Resort and Spa, Maldives, we have the Reef Care project which aims to foster interest and awareness of marine life and the threats facing it globally, as well as involve guests in activities linked to marine life protection at the resort through activities offered at the Eco Centre.
