My feet touched the ground at Shangri-La and it felt like i have arrived in heaven. The land is so beautifully kept and the ambiance is peacefull.
The first person who greeted me with a huge smile was Alfred... who I later called 'Liefie", because he bent over backwards to do anything for us. We were a huge group and every single person had the most amazing time at this hotel. It almost feels wrong to call it Hotel, as it feels like it is now "home". Thank you for all the little things and gestures and smiles and unbelieveable food and service. thank you for doing my laundry without asking and for always smiling and doing everything with pleasure. All the staff work together like a big family and we definitely felt like you have accepted all of us as part of that family.
i have travelled the world, and without a doubt, i can say, this was my most memorable visit ever. And this is not only because the actual hotel and grounds are beautiful but because of your people, service, food excellence and humility!
I am humbled by my experience and so thankful for the experience.
To Alfred, my "Liefie", thank you so much for being such an incredible host and for servicing us with love.
i will certainly be back soon !
