I don't know where to begin. If i had the option of visiting another resort in the maldives or coming back to the Shangri La, I would choose this place again in a heartbeat. The place is decorated with such unique and beautiful wildlife, one you would only experience in the southern part of the country. Its below the Equator,... More

Unexpected stay. Villa facing Indian Ocean, swimming at infinity pool viewing the ocean cannot describe in words. Walking along the coastal, bathing in shinning sun cannot imagine. Foods are fine. Dining at viewing deck is a good choice.

If you are looking for the Ultra Personalised Experience in Maldives - do not consider any other resort. This is by far the best resort.

Intriguing how the level of service differs based on the country and resort you choose to stay at. Day 4 of our week long stay, my natural inclination to share my thoughts succumbs to the fatigue of jet lag in the quiet morning hours at this beautiful resort. We've traveled extensively as a family to incredible locations and understand the... More
