Shangri-La's Villingili Resort and Spa unveils the first ever golf course in the Maldives with special offer
Golfing enthusiasts will now be able to enjoy playing the sport during Maldives holidays after Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts opened the island nation's first nine-hole recreational golf course at Shangri-La's Villingili Resort and Spa last month.
The very first golf resort in the Maldives has finally opened its doors to guests giving golfing lovers the chance to play the game in one of the most blissfully idyllic beach destinations in the world.
Shangri-La's Villingili Resort and Spa opened on 27th March, 2012 to the delight of golfers planning Maldives holidays, as they will now have access to a nine-hole recreational golf course which is surrounded by stunning natural landscapes.
Situated on seven and a half hectares of undeveloped land, the golf course was designed by Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts and is the first to open in the Maldives.
The course caters for both beginners and avid golf players and is surrounded by exotic plants, palm trees and colourful flora with views overlooking the white sandy beaches and sparkling turquoise Indian Ocean.
