From the minute we stepped out of the taxi into the foyer we felt right at home at the Shangri-La.
Our flight arrived early and we at reception just after 9am. Fiona in reception said seeing as you room is not ready why don't you have a complimentary breakfast on us and I will call you when it is ready. We went up to the Horizon Club and had our breakfast and then went for a walk. Fiona rang us about an hour later. If you can afford the extra money the Horizon Club is the way to go. Full cooked breakfast and complimentary drinks and nibbles from 5pm - 7pm including spirits and access to quality coffee and fruit juices throughout the day.
We had a lovely loom overlooking the marina. Yes bathroom area is a little dated but establishment is in for a full refurbish next year and the rooms are clean and tidy, beds are comfortable and they have every amenity.
The location is perfect. A couple of minute stroll to uptown restaurants on the Marina are at your door as are boats doing cruises and fishing trips.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Shangri La in Cairn and would most definitely stay here again when we visit.
