My friend and I had a fabulous time at the Shangri-La in Abu Dhabi. The staff were so friendly, the Front Office Manager Hadi and a lovely staff member Loubna were so helpful to us Ozzies. Willing to do anything for us. We felt like royalty. Meals were superb, wonderful friendly family atmosphere with excellent hospitality from Dunga, Lina, Joby, Cherry, Cindy and Belch. Room was wonderful with a view of the pool 👌 highly recommend.

Classy

Classy nice resort. Top notch service, accommodations were culturally fitting. Not extra super contemporary but classy and still very nice. The mosque view from my room was bomb. The private boat ride is definitely a great luxury amenity. No complaints. They were happy to have us and I was happy to be their guest.
