Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa Unveils the Pure Maldives Experience

Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa has unveiled a new collection of tailor-made activities allowing guests to get the most out of their Maldivian island escape.
The Pure Maldives experience begins with a unique journey aboard a Dash 8 Aircraft providing a bird’s eye view of the islands, flying south from Male to Addu Atoll – the southernmost atoll in the Maldives. Villingili’s unique location allows visitors to experience an island unlike any other, with untouched natural beauty, ultimate privacy and an array of ocean and land adventures.
Surrounded by a striking coral reef and over 2 kilometres of pristine coastline, guests can enjoy an unmatched arrival experience. After a refreshing drink of fresh coconut water picked courtesy of the island’s resident climbers, they are welcomed into their private villa by their personal Villa Host with a bottle of chilled champagne.  
As part of the experience, the Villa Host will coordinate a deep sea big game fishing excursion where guests can catch their own fish including red snapper, barracuda and tuna from a private boat. 
The Villa Host can also suggest a location for a private Dine-by-Design culinary experience where guests enjoy their very own catch cooked to order in a special location, in the jungle, on the beach, or even on Mt. Villingili, the highest summit in the Maldives (which rises to 5.1 metres!).   
The Pure Maldives Experience showcases the best of Villingili’s natural beauty. Adventure-seekers can explore Villingili’s lagoon with a vast array of water sports and enjoy complimentary paddleboard (SUP) hire. The island’s lagoon is one of the most biodiverse marine environments on the planet with manta rays, turtles, black-tipped reef sharks and colourful tropical fish.
Keen golfers will delight in Villingili’s nine-hole lagoon-side golf course – the only one of its kind in the Maldives; and green fees are included. 
The Pure Maldives experience includes a choice of seven distinctly styled villas in different locations around the island – from the privacy of a secluded and spacious beach villa to the thrill and serenity of a water villa. 
This offer is available until 31 May 2016, from 1,013 USD per night.
