Yes you read the title correctly. During our first week it was extremely busy at the sunset bar and the area around it. We were lucky in that the sunsets were not very good. During or second week it was less populated and the sunsets were stunningly good. One evening it rained, the sunset bar was completely empty! We left... More

Sadly, we didn't make it on time for sunset, but the view and ambience was still gorgeous. Was served quickly. Drinks were good, food was okay. Pretty average actually. However, most disappointing was service. Even though it was not busy, we had to ask to have our plates cleared after 25 minutes of empty plates sitting on our table. We... More

This is our last night at the Shanghai La Tajung Aru. We decided to go here to view the sunset. You can't help the weather but it's not about the awful sunset. We arrived early and were told about the cost limit to sit at the front. Perfectly fine except for the high stools which due to health reasons I... More

We reached around 4.30pm and the place was not very crowded yet. However, all the front most seats had been booked. We ordered drinks which totaled up to more than the minimum order for the front seats, and got seats in the second row. It would be better if they allowed first come first serve seating. And the minimum spend... More

Dear Susheel Kaur Dh... J, Thank you very much for your comments.

We hope that these measures will ensure the comfort of... More

They have built a brilliant bar which is all about relaxation in a great atmosphere while watching spectacular sunsets. Booking is a must if you want one of the loungers for couples.
