Stayed one night (that was enough) and i have to say that compared to other 5* hotels across the world this really is not what you would expect. My list of first world issues include: 5 ft bed accompanied with cheap sheets Sauna broken Gym not actually in the hotel (within the complex) Tired room Rust on shower fittings! Pool... More

After much research we chose Shangri-La for its location next to the Marina and near shops and the Cairns Esplanade Lagoon, also for its beautiful pool area. We were not disappointed. We stuck with a "Superior" room, this is actually the lower tier price-wise but it was still fine with a view of the internal courtyard/pool area and nice trees.... More

The hotel is in a fantastic position, right on the marina, short walk to resaurants, bars, Esplanade and walking distance to the main shopping area. Good sized room, very clean. The pool area is very resort style with a pool bar, a nice place to chill out.

My husband took me there following our engagement in Brisbane. I was on my first trip to Australia and he had described Cairns as being paradise. His usual stay was at the Shangri-La, his hotel of choice. He was absolutely right. The hotel was beautiful. Our balcony overlooked the marina. We could see the reef for miles and miles. This...

Stayed for two nights as part of a holiday in Australia. We had a lovely room on the upper level with patio doors onto a garden with Palm trees, leading to the pool. The room and indeed the whole hotel were very well appointed. Unfortunately, we had tours both days so did not really have time to use the pool,... More

Our first time to Cairns and wasn't sure where to stay but glad we settled on the Shangri-La. Great location, nice rooms, great pools and nice views. We have an ocean view room with a spectacular panorama. The breakfast which we had included is to die for too. Overlooking the marina you can have eggs custom cooked in front of... More

Thankfully, the hotel is advertising an upcoming refurbishment, so the jewel in the Cairns marina will be the Shangri-la once more. That said, the view over the marina is great, the service and quality of staff is excellent and the positioning of the hotel at the marina itself is wonderful. Wait for the Reno, then be sure to spend some... More

The location of the hotel is fantastic, however you must be prepared for the nighttime noise from the surrounding bars and restaurants. This us particularly the case if you are in the northern tower, avoid it.

Excellent hotel! I'd highly recommend this hotel for anyone residing in Cairns. the view of the marina and beach was great. The location is walking distance from excellent restaurants, shopping and excursion take-offs.
