We headed to Shangri-La's Villingili for our Honeymoon, and I must say our choice was perfect. We did at least 3 weeks of intense investigation and took the final decision days before flying. So if you are still hesitant of where to go, this resort is amazing and would definitely recommend it. You might only do Maldives once, so better...

It's green paradise in middle of ocean. Perfect staff, kitchen. It's quite far from Male international airport, but it's worth it. Because we travelled with kids, we prefer beach villas. Beach access is perfect. People who like diving will love also diving spots.
