2013 was a year of firsts for Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa, Maldives. The luxury property launched the first private executive terminal and a cultural tours programme, both counted as firsts for a five-star resort in the Maldives. These developments have set it apart from other resorts and secured it a place in the Five Star Alliance’s prestigious Top 50 World’s Best Hotels list.
Selected from more than 4,400 international luxury properties, the hotels were assessed for their unique experiences, luxury credentials and guest feedback. Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa, Maldives was also commended for its villa accommodation, including the private ocean retreats and tropical tree house villas, and for its boutique style environment.
“Since 2010 we have tried to set the benchmark in luxury, this year alone we have launched two new services to satisfy the needs of our high net worth clientele,” Peter Donlevy, director of Sales and Marketing said. “To avoid complacency, we continually review our offering and for 2014 we will be opening a new area that will present a new entertainment experience.”
