WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

Location: In a location that is both convenient and hidden away, the Shangri-La offers an easy access to relaxation and seclusion.

Services: From the laundry, concierge and valet services, all the way up to the private butlers attending the suites, the service here is second-to-none.

History: While its modern amenities are cutting edge, the Shangri-La pays homage to its historic home with elegant Arabic decor throughout.

DETAILED DECRIPTION

Within the Qaryat Al Beri complex, the Shangri-La stands on its own stretch of beach, with views across the strait to the mainland. While it’s only a 10-minute drive from the airport and just 15 minutes from the city center, the hotel inhabits its own world, where guests can escape for a little peace and privacy. Traditional abras convey guests around the hotel, along its waterways, amidst impressive architecture and gorgeous decor. The rooms are similarly decked out with warm tones and lush fabrics, their private balconies afford stunning views and the self contained suites come with private butlers for total convenience. Guests can indulge in international cuisine across five highly-acclaimed restaurants and enjoy drinks at sunset, on the roof or by the pool. The Shangri-La’s private beach lures guests with glittering waves while the health club and spa promise relaxation and invigoration amidst world class facilities.
