The very comfortable main room was complemented by an adjunct room with entertainment systems galore. The buggy was available at all times to ferry us to...

I researched so many hotels in Maldives and fell in love with Shangri-La. This is going to be a pretty long review so just bear with me. So reservation process was very easy and smooth. Email communication was smooth and usually got a reply within 24 hours. Shangri-La is located in the Addu Atoll which is the southern part of...

Yes, it is a bit of a trek to get down to Villingili, plane form London to male, another 90 minutes to the local airport and then a 20 minutes boat. But when you get there you are in heaven.
