This is the third time I spent the holiday in Shangri La. The place is amazing wherein children and adults can enjoy at the same time. You can enjoy relaxing on the lazy river, kayaking, swimming or just walk around the resort. Kids can enjoy playing in the splash pads, playing games, camel ride and others. Services are very good...

Visited a few years ago with my parents and I have to say the service was outstanding! If ever anything was needed the hotel staff would drop everything to offer a good service to you.

Stayed in Al Waha before the Eid rush and was pleasantly surprised that the rooms appeared to have been upgraded. Last visited a few years back and found the rooms to be tired and outdated so this was a welcome change. Missed a few things though-there was no welcome drink or anything for the kids, the breakfast buffet seemed to... More
