SHANGRI-LA HOTELS AND RESORTS, is to open an exclusive and fully-integrated spa resort in the Maldives in 2004, situated on Villingili, an unspoilt island in Addu Atoll.
Consisting of four independent and unique villages, the eco-orientated 252-villa resort is a five minute speedboat ride away from Gan airport, which is in the process of being upgraded to international status.
The hotel will have its own private airport lounge and access to a soon-to-be-completed golf course, which will be the only one in the Maldives.
The Waterford village with 68-water bungalows on stilts is ideal for couples and honeymooners seeking a romantic Indian Ocean hideaway.
It will have a Horizon Club, Shangri-La's exclusive club concept, which offers special privileges, as well as its own private sports pavilion.
With 67 villas extending over the ocean, the Plantation Club village will provide a more relaxed atmosphere.
Set directly on the beach amidst the palms from which it gets its name, the family orientated Whispering Palm village will offer 77 villas, including eight that are split level.
The Windance village will consist of 40 semi-detached tree houses perched on lush greenery with panoramic sunrise and sunset views.
