Shangri LA on Lake Ouachita is centrally located and has clean rooms, restaurant, and Marina. Very friendly with great service. My favorite resort on the lake. They also have two bedroom cabins with kitchens

My sister and I just returned from this great place. It is the perfect place for a getaway and fishing at economical prices, which is good for senior people who are on a fixed income. The food was great but the homemade pie was the best and sells out, so be sure to make your selection before you order your... More

My family has been going here since 1963. Love, love, love this place! Gorgeous views! Friendly staff, great food, comfortable rooms, very reasonable prices. Best pie and homemade onion rings! I wish I never had to leave! I highly recommend for great family time.

We looked for a place to stay for a few nights in Mt Ida and decided on Shangri-La after reading it's reviews and those of a few of it's competitors in town. We were very happy with our choice! It's located literally right on the shore of Lake Ouachita - very scenic setting! There are several cabins, a court style... More

this is a great motel. our room had the swimming pool, out back, but it was not filled, or it might have been noisy. all the rooms have 2 chairs, out back, so you can sit and enjoy the view. there weren't alot of boats on the lake. the room is large enough. we got two beds. open the curtains...

This place is horrible, the worst place I have ever stayed in. Bathroom floor was rotten and soft. Bathroom walls were rotting away. Sheets and blankets had stains, holes and would not even fit the mattress. The view was nice, but that was it. For $78 per night, this is a rip off. Stay away from this dump!

Although my friend and I stayed at another resort on Lake Ouachita, we tried the restaurant at Shangri-La on the recommendation of a local business owner. She told us the pie was the best anywhere. She was right. We both had the chocolate pie with meringue and it was just like mom used to make!! The locale by the lake... More

Ahh the pie...I can not say enough about the pie. Does not even matter what kind they are all so good! Grandma still makes all the crust by hand every day the kids now help with the filling but it's the crust that makes these pie's unforgetable. Do not limit yourself to one kind or one piece, try them all.... More

We loved this place! Traveling back from a trip out west, and wanting to visit some gem mines, Mt. Ida was a perfect stop. This was not our first choice of places to stay but after visiting that one and being very disappointed with the rooms offered, we decided to come here instead. So glad we did. As we drove... More

We absolutely LOVE this place! I wanted to book it for the very next weekend! We will be going back for sure! The rooms are quaint and basic with great views of the lake. The pool was nice to have right outside our door for a late night swim! The cafe has a basic selection and is VERY good! The... More
