Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa Resort



This stunning venue in the middle of the Indian Ocean gives you the opportunity to play golf in the most remote part of the world, albeit just a nine hole course, but crucially the only golf course in the Maldives. Island Golf Holidays are the only golf travel company to offer this unique venue. The island is situated in the Addu Atoll south of the Equator and is accessible by boat from the island of Gan, where there is a runway. Your journey would involve international flights with British Airways, or Emirates to Male, with a 30 seater connecting domestic flight to Gan from Male and then a 10 minute boat journey. The holiday starts once you get on the small plane which flies south from Male, the views are outstanding when you will fly over this unique collection of islands.

Villingili Island is one of the most beautiful islands in the Maldives and large enough to be very interesting thanks to its natural dense vegetation, which sets it apart from other smaller island venues in the region, offering the visitor the chance to enjoy nature trails, guided walks and bike tours, there are also some superb boat trips, which give you the chance to do historical tours of neighbouring islands like Gan, which was handed over by the British in 1976 and was a station for the RAF during the Second World War. You can go for a boat trip which involves taking a picnic where you can moor up your boat on the Equator. If you love diving this is an exceptional area for scuba diving, there are some great dive sites to explore and there are some great initiation lessons for beginners. The OCEAN in this part of the world is brimming with sea life, stunning under water scenery.

The golf course is special, OK it is only 9 holes with an average length of hole of 125 yards, but the location is superb, the course is laid out on the southern side of Villingili Island. Perfect for the traveller who is looking for a complete break and relaxation where the golf is of secondary importance. The nine holes thread their way around the coastline with spectacular ocean views at every twist and turn.

The accommodation at Villingili is special, with private villas on stilts either in the jungle on the island, or one the Turquoise shoreline. The rooms are ideal for couples or families alike!

The Shangri-La has 3 restaurants which specialise in seafood & steak, Mediterranean or Western cuisine, there are cool bars such as the M lounge with lots of live music, or DJs – great place to start or finish your evenings!

Directors Tips – Check out the location of this beautiful island venue on google maps just to see where it is in the world, south of Sri Lanka and the most southerly of the Atolls in the Maldives in the middle of the India Ocean. The destination is 1 hour ahead of the rest of the Maldives Islands so that you have that extra hour of daylight in the evenings to enjoy the great sunsets!

Surely this is the most remote golf course in the world, it is the only course in the Maldives and is in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

All 9 holes have superb vistas across the Indian Ocean and the shot making is dramatic and spectacular. Yes the course is only nine holes and the average length is only 125 yards but it is a very exhilarating experience and enhances a holiday to one of the world’s most special places for the ultimate relaxing holiday!
