The new Shangri-La Villingili Resort and Spa, Maldives, set to open late this year, will offer guests a chance to experience a gourmet lunch on the equator.
The hotel’s 21-meter (69-foot) luxury yacht will transport guests 75 kilometers (46 miles) north from the resort to the meeting place of the northern and southern hemispheres, where passengers can enjoy a gourmet lunch with fine wines. But first, guests will have breakfast on the ship’s deck and take part in a champagne toast upon reaching the equator, a truly unique lunch destination.
The full-day cruise also will offer guests the opportunity to relax in the sun, fish, snorkel and visit Fuvahmulah, the third-largest island in the country. The journey ends with sunset cocktails on deck as the yacht returns to the resort.Source: www.hotelsmag.com
