We spent four nights in the Valley Wing of the Shangri-La just prior to Chinese New Year. The Valley Wing is a "hotel within the hotel" boasting service and attention to detail that places it head and shoulders above the rest of the hotel. An example of this was staff remembering my son's dietary issues and ensuring that these were accounted for not only at breakfast but in the snacks provided as part of high tea. All this was done without fuss and without having to ask. This was particularly remarkable given the hotel was probably at its busiest with the onset of the CNY holidays.
The rooms are spacious and almost suite like. Even with a roll away bed there was plenty of room for two adults and a 9 yo to relax in comfort.
Breakfast in the Valley Wing was a wonderful experience with waiter service and an amazing range of food and beverage selections. Perhaps not as wide as the selection at other parts of the Hotel but our family found more than enough to satisfy them.
In contrast we also dined in the Line Restaurant. While the food was fantastic in quality and amazing in variety it was filled to bursting point with large groups. It was absolute bedlam and not an altogether pleasing experience.
The pool also got a good workout. It was huge and plenty deep enough.
All in all a wonderful stay. We look forward to returning some day.
