Absolutely breathtaking! When it reopens after renovations it may still be a Covid-19 world. There may be safety measures in place but it is definitely worth a visit. Even before Covid-19, tickets had to be purchased far in advance. So plan ahead. All the staff at the Honolulu Museum of Art and at the Shangri La were so friendly and informative. Looking forward to checking out the refreshed Shangri La!

Shangri La is literally like no place else on earth. Although one may criticize Doris Duke for combining elements that would never be seen together (or even in the same country), that is precisely the beauty of the place. It is as unique as the surfing heiress herself. Doris Duke's impeccable taste (and her unlimited funds) is manifested in every element of her home. The tour, which is the only way to experience Shangri La, is amazing. Our guide was extremely knowledgable and engaging, especially for folks who don't know a lot about Islamic and Middle Eastern art and architecture. Full disclosure: I am an art historian and I had the great good fortune to work on the book Doris Duke's Shangri La: A House in Paradise (2012). The book is full of amazing photographs and stories of Doris Duke's travels and support of local artisans. Make sure you reserve your tickets early (and plan to spend some additional time at the Honolulu Museum of Art before or after the tour of Shangri La).

Tickets through Honolulu Museum of Art, which shuttles you to site near backside of Diamond Head. Includes ticket to Honolulu Museum of Art exhibits after you tour. Tickets sell out quickly with around 30 at a time split into 2 groups for 90 min tour. A very nice collection of islamic art and furnishings/decor and house dating from 1920s and 30s. $25 per person. Great views of coastline. Beautiful grounds. Honolulu Museum of Art is also a large, fantastic collection of asian art from all ages. Well worth it.

My wife and I went to Shangri La in October. When the entrance door in the parking area opens to the view of the long lake bordered by trees with geometric designed water aspects, all you can think of is "This is just like the Taj Mahal! Really great docents keep the information coming. Those interested in architecture, design and things middle east will be thrilled!

This is a must see for everyone. Doris Duke's collection is mind blowing and the architecture of her home that was built in the 30's is breathtaking. Our guide was so lovely, kind and knowledgeable of everything on the tour. When we first arrived the outside of the home is so plain and our guide said that once we entered, it would be like walking into a jewel box and she was right on! Such history and the largest collection of its kind. This was my favorite part of my trip to Oahu.
