I travelled with my wife to my first ever :Shangri la: experience at cairns this summer from the 16th of December 2012 for 3 nights.We travelled through some nice australian destinations to reach here.
If cairns is the crown of Australia then i bet Shangrila certainly has to be the jewel in it.
I will have to find suitable adjectives to describe my experience , if i fail to express it - then probably there ain't many available in the english dictionary. A hospitality of genuine class greeted us , true quality of service at the front desk. I am sorry if i am missing a couple of names here but i would like to compliment -Windy and Nora both were very helpful.We had pre- booked a Marina view room. If ever there was a saying that went by "a room with a view" the author must have checked in here for sure. The view of the cairns Marina couldn't be any better than from here. Awesome- that's the word- the room extends itself to a small balcony with a cofee table to laze around and enjoy the sun sets.The room was pretty much good by its standards, the bathroom was spacoius and clean.The beds were comfortable and so were the sofas.
The icing on the cake was the great location of this property . Shangri la execudes a charm of its own -its a fabulous property sprawling in acres and sits right on top of the cairns Marina.
A beautiful hotel. A very special thanks to Mr. George Wee , the General Manager sir for your hand signed birthday greetings for my wife and those rosy red apples yes sir ,we have had our most enjoyable and memorable stay at your hotel. I would like to congartulate your whole team for their tireless efforts and service. You are a hallmark of "True Hospitality". I expect the entire Australian hotel industry to learn from you what hospitality is.The polite behavoiur of each and every staff of your hotel is mark worthy .An outstanding quality of service from the school of Shangrila. I am happy to be a part of the Golden Circle now, thanks and many congratulations .
