My wife and I stayed here on the first night of our recent visit to Abu Dhabi to see our son who is working there for six months. He recommended it as it is not too far from the airport where we were arriving late. We had a wonderful welcome and were shown straight to our room (444) which has a lovely balcony overlooking the grounds of the hotel. Our son had arranged a bottle of champagne for us on arrival and this was waiting for us. He then arrived so we sat on the balcony sipping chilled champagne and eating strawberries and cream. The girl who showed us to our room could not have been more welcoming.
We decided to dine outside at Hoi Ann, the Vietnamese restaurant, which was very good indeed. Our son said it was the best meal he had had in Abu Dhabi. We then had breakfast in our room as we were leaving that morning to go to the Qasr al Sarab Hotel in the desert. We therefore only had a very short stay at the Shangri La but it could not have been bettered.
