It remains a truly spectacular setting with all sorts of fantastic facilities and generously proportioned rooms. On this occasion, the room was upgraded to a suite which had a wonderful L shaped terrace with views straight over the sea. Nothing to complain about but as the popularity has obviously increased over the years, the volume of guests does create some... More

I stayed for eight night at the Al Husn hotel of the Shangr La Resort. What a fantastic experience! The hotel is fabolous. Rooms are very spacious with all possible amenities. The air conditioning is not noisy at all and works very well. Common parts are really super-well kept. The atmosphere is relaxed and quiet. Staff are very pleasant and... More

Stayed at the Shangri La for 10 days, with young teenagers. Great hotel, clean and excellent choice of restaurants (all included in half board booking), quality sports facilities (tennis, gym). Kids spent hours on the lazy river coming and going as they pleased. Three interconnected (by a very short walk - which was useful after a large meal!!) hotels, one... More

We stayed at the adult only hotel and enjoyed the tranquility of the fabulous pool and beach. Breakfast, afternoon tea and pre dinner drinks were included and all delicious. The rooms were extremely comfortable and clean. The facilities were excellent. We tried most of the restaurants in the evenings and the food was a little disappointing and that is why... More

This is the best of the 5 star hotels on the resort (and according to the staff claims to be 6 star, but while it is definitely 5 star, I wouldn't agree with the staff). The rooms are large and superb. Cocktails in the central courtyard between 6 -7 pm are complimentary, and make a great start to the evening.... More

This is the adults-only hotel in the Shangri-La resort adjoining two other hotels on a larger complex. The hotel is well sited and from the moment you step out of your car arriving into the exquisite foyer the staff simply can't do enough for you.
