The rooms are spacious, all details were taken care of in a very immaculate manner. The room was very quite, and the views of water and mosque were spectacular.... More

Stayed here as a group of travel agents and tour operators, staff were excellent from the minute we arrived until we checked out. Hotel is stunning with Arabian décor and modern facilities. Food lovely although the breakfast items were sometimes cold. Would recommend this hotel for any future clientèle.

The SL is not a small hotel with well-spaced rooms, ornate architectural features, two pools, 2 beaches and extensive landscaped gardens. The welcome is warm and inviting. It's nice to be fussed over by attentive staff, all of whom perform their jobs admirably. The rooms are spacious and well appointed and many have a view across the water to the... More

Stayed at Shagri-la in April 2015 and had the most amazing experience!! The hotel does not spread over a very large area but the ambience and the decor are so good that you feel that its a city of its own.
