We had a couple of meals there during a visit to that part of the state. Our supper was your typical diner fare....OK, but nothing outstanding. We had heard about the pie and took some to-go.......BEST PIE EVER!!!!! Do not have a meal there without trying some of the pie. They have every kind you can imagine. It is like... More

If you like retro, you'll love this place. The "cabins" are more like apartments, as only three are free standing. Equipped with everything you need except a microwave. Ours had a big crack in the living room wall, and the ceiling light covers were missing. The only real down side was the very noisy air conditioning blower in the closet... More

Love the cafe at Shangri La. We have a condo at Mountain Harbor but love to take the boat over to Shangri La for lunch and a slice of pie. The very best pie in the world----homemade every day. Order early because it goes fast.

We were looking for a place on Lake Ouachita that was quiet and secluded, had access to a boat launch, allowed pets and had a restaurant on the premises. Shangri La Resort had it all. We were very pleased with our stay and will definitely return.

The Shangri La Resort is awesome. It is old, but great. The cafe has daily lunch specials that are good home cooked meals. The breakfast is great. AND, the pies are really great. You better put your pie order in early if you want a whole one or if you want them to put a piece back for later in... More

My father has been going to Shangri La since he was a kid in the 1960s, and he took his own family there when we were growing up as well. Shangri-la is not a 5-star resort in the typical sense. However, if it's peace, beauty, and DARN GOOD PIE that you're looking for, this is the place for you.

The view of the lake and the serenity is absolutely outstanding. The cabins are old, funky, rusty, and in need of repair and our cabin could have used some new beds. Except for the flat screen tv, you would think it was the 1950's. Early October our weather was divine most of the time and we came for the Big... More

My wife and I have stayed in 5 Star hotels from Amman, Jordan to all points in the U.S. This is one of our favorite places. It is not 5 Star. It is a quite place of beauty, charm, great food, and friendly people. The view of the lake is not matched anywhere. The acceptance felt by everyone here allows... More

Oh my goodness, what a pleasant surprise. After a two mile drive down a two lane forested road, you are greeted by cabins and a small motel. When you walk into the small office area, everything is still done by hand, from the reservations, the sign in on a small postcard and the handwritten receipt. The bookkeeping is also done... More
