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.
Located at tee number eight of the golf course, Mount Villingili has been officially certified as the highest point in the Maldives. The world’ smallest mountain stands at a modest 5.1 metres and can be explored during a casual golf game or as part of a guided tour.
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 & 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.
