After spending a few nights at the Valley Wing Shangri La we were a little disappointed at feeling like just a regular guest again. The Capella had asked beforehand if we were coming for any particular reason, we told them it was our 10th wedding anniversary and nothing more was mentioned of it. At the Shangers they also asked in advance and greeted us with a specially made cake and several staff congratulated us(don't want to sound precious but not sure why they asked in the first place).
My hubby felt a bit let down at the service level initially but after a day or so we settled in to the more subdued feel of the Capella. The grounds are amazing- ask the concierge to organise a buggy tour - this was great to get a lay of the land. Our room was lovely- very large with a view of the sea- have to say lots of people had commented on how horrible looking at the view was due to the shipping lanes- we found it fascinating! Our own home has big ocean views but pretty much just ocean views and at night nothing- the lights of the ships were awesome to look at and always changing. Amazing watching a storm roll in one eveving from our 5th floor room.
Pool area and spa were gorgeous, the hotel was pretty full but hardly saw more than 5 other people at any one time. Our two girls loved the resident peacocks and fed them daily.
We felt welcome at high tea in the library- special mention to lovely Gregory- so helpful. The selection was fabulous- we loved it, high tea and a few games of UNO! The room service food was beautiful- we also dined at Cassia- a very good standard, reasonable prices compared to here in WA, expensive alcohol of course but hey.
The stretch of beach in front of the hotel is a kids paradise- so much to do, all within very short distances on the map. I was sceptical about universal studios but it was great- the concierge issued the tickets from their front desk so no lining up- highly recommended.
If you can- ask for Maria to be your PA- she was delightful. Next time we come back we will stay in a manor- they look amazing- just watch out for the massive lizards!!!
