Guests who fly by private jet to the Maldives can now land five minutes from Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort and Spa.

The property is the first five-star resort in the Maldives to open its own private executive airport terminal.

Located at Gan International Airport in Addu Atoll, the terminal is for the exclusive arrival and departure of the resort’s guests, including those on commercial flights to and from Malé International Airport.

The private terminal is just five minutes by speedboat from the resort and features two lounges and a VIP room. A private lounge is reserved for guests arriving by private jet and offers one-stop immigration, custom and baggage screening services for a seamless arrival experience.
