“Had a great Birthday @ Shangrila”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

Loved the stay!! had a fantastic Birthday there on 25.07.2014. enjoyed the ride in the abraa ..My 2 year old son wanted to go everyday on the Abraa.lol. He also loved the baby pool.. Our room - Garden Suite was also fantastic..opening up to the beach.. The staff are excellent and well co-ordinated as i noticed that they knew us by name at most of the places we went to within the hotel(without us informing them).

Service is excellent too. loved the horizon lounge as well..and yes.. the Chi spa and the jacuzzi are a must visit..All in all a very peaceful and relaxing place and i will definitely visit again and would highly recommend it.. Regards, Sonali

Room Tip: We stayed at the Garden Suite and it was excellent.. very spacious with a separate seating area and...

We stayed for the weekend during Ramadan. The ambiance is amazing with the magical Arabic style. The hotel was almost empty and they gave us a room upgrade for free. The room was very spacious and well appointed but it had kind of a humid damp smell. At this time of the year is extremely humid and the room could have used a dehumidifier. Gym facilities are excellent and there is a separate gym for women. The view from the large infinity pool is excellent, it is directly across from the Grand Mosque. Room service was very quick and the portions were large and food was very tasty. Breakfast was included, they have a large buffet with pretty much everything you want for breakfast.

Stayed here a week in February. Without a doubt one of the best hotels we have stayed. The service - perfect!! Loved the hotel, loved the rooms, loved the club lounge and extra benefits. Arriving at 9 am and were upgraded as our room was not ready. How perfect is that! Service with such attention to details that more cannot be hoped for.

Food at the main restaurant excellent, both dinner (buffet) and breakfast. A bit pricey, but as expected.

Great health club with a very nice pool, spinning classes and yoga! Fantastic!

The only cons are that the pools are not that big and the activities for kids are very limited.

Would love to stay here again!

Room Tip: Do go for a club room, you will love all the extras! Well worth the money.

Excellent in Customer Service,wide variety of food and outdoor and indoor activities. Best Health Club,It was unforgettable 2 nights.The staff serve from the heart, they all went extra mile to engage, serve and make sure we are happy. Service is quick. When we call housekeeping response is very fast and efficient. High level of hospitality and generosity. Luxurious place , royal treatment, hostess opening door for you, escorting you to the car when leaving hotel and asking you to come back. Every service staff is checking you are happy, when we had the boat even the driver was checking, when we took club car driver was talking all the way and checking we are enjoying suggesting where to go and how to enjoy our time.

I would book the hotel again for business and for pleasure alike. A great pool, big rooms, exceptional breakfast. The location requires a taxi budget, unless you dine & shop in the adjacent mall (which is ok), but driving around in Abu Dhabi is really cheap. The 'natural beach' is less exciting since it is some kind of canal, but the pool more than makes up for it with a great view, especially at nights.

This was my first experience at a Shangri La although I had heard a lot about them of course.

It is a really new property and I was only staying for two nights so didnt really have an opportunity to use all of the hotels services.The pool looked lovely with great views over toward Abu Dhabi which is a fair distance away by car so perhaps not convenient for you if you have multiple meetings in the centre. Its very convenient for the airport though.

The rooms are lovely and are in keeping with the regional feel of the Emirates (unlike say Park Hyatt which keeps a zen like design/feel across most of its hotels no matter what country). The service was exemplary, so friendly and accessible without feeling claustrophobic.

I ate at the chinese restaurant the first night overlooking the Mosque which is spectacular. The food was superb as well. Not so keen on the main restaurant which at evening buffet time was a bit of a zoo. Too many people with not enough staff so lots of dirty tables. We ordered fish and meat that was cooked to order and after waiting 45 minutes we complained to find that it had been forgotten. Teething problems perhaps and certainly didnt spoil my stay.

Lots of competition in this area though with the Park Hyatt, Viceroy and Ritz Carlton all within a few miles. This hotel certainly stands up to them all extremely well.

The best hotel i ever stayed. only a night (in the way to Dubai, February) but unforgettable and the most enjoyable dinner and stay.
Shangri-La just brought the quality service and personnel to a very high level.
the restaurant buffet is wonderful, sushi varieties, as well as fish and meat (rose-beef, filets...), sweets, are so delightful that it's very hard to leave the restaurant.
the reception staff, dates & tea- coffee welcoming habits by a very beautiful traditionally dressed ladies and gentlemen is quite impressive and warm.
the private beach, outdoor pool area is also a nice touch in this hotel.
highly recommend it
