Dr. Mahmoud Shaugy Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation has revealed that development of the resort at Villingili of Addu Atoll will be complete in September this year.

Dr. Shaugy speaking to Miadhu Daily said after his recent visit to Vilingili to inspect the ongoing work he can see that the previous completion date of July cannot be achieved and that September was more likely.

“We all hoped that Vilingili can be completed by July, but on my last visit I noted that July deadline would be a bit difficult to achieve but it will be completed some time in September” said Dr. Shaugy.

Dr. Shaugy said work is being slowed due to delays in transportation of required items to these islands as well as due to adverse weather conditions. Mr. Abel Damagy General Manager of Shangrilla Maldives Resort and Spa has said that resort development in Vilingili of Addu Atoll was due to changes to the design of the resort. He further said more than US $ 80 Million will be spent on resort development. He has given assurances that Shangirlla will realize the dreams of Adduans.

Shangrilla Maldives has recently commenced a hospitality training program to the youths of the atoll wishing to take up positions in the resort.

Shangrilla Vilingili Resort and Spa will be first international resort to be opened in Addu Atoll and is just 8 minutes from Gan International Airport or just 70 minutes from Male’ International Airport.
