We spent 10 days at Villingili and wished we could have stayed longer. Our Overwater Villa was superb and to be able to snorkel directly from it was great, however if you want total seclusion our choice for the last 6 nights of our stay were the Ocean View Tree House Villa's, although a little more expensive we would definitely...

Loved the Shangri-la in Maldives. We flew straight into Gan and the hotel looked after us from that point. Room service is a little slow but we had fun. The watervillas were quite nice though you couldn't really put your feet down because of the coral. It's good for snorkelling and we took a boat out to snorkel and look...
