Shangri-La Hotel, The Marina, Cairns
Ranked #8 of 64 Hotels in Cairns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Fabulous pool and gardens although we were disappointed that there was no spa. Great location for day trips, dining out (excellent choice of restaurants at the Marina) and spectacular views over the bay.

Room Tip: Take an ocean or marina view room

We had 2 nights to stay in Cairns after a 4 day trip to Port Douglas. I looked at reviews of hotels and was very happy with our choice of hotel. The views were great from our Horizon Marina View room and the room was lovely. Only problem was the room was not ready till 2.15pm. Otherwise the staff and Horizon Lounge were great.

I love love loved this hotel. We went as a family for my parent's anniversary and they gave us champagne and chocolates which were both excellent. We also were in the perfect location which was great as well. I never wanted to leave!

This is certainly one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in. The Indulgence package was well worth the cost. The staff was friendly, helpful and attuned to detail. We especially enjoyed the staff (Ken) who served the breakfast and happy hour. The food for both breakfast and happy hour was excellent. Ask for a room with a view on the bay. We loved that. The pool was very nice even though they were doing some work on it at the time. I am sure it is finished by now. I hope I can stay at another Shangri-La Hotel some day. I did not notice a copy of James Hilton's 1930s novel Lost Horizon that was in one of the drawers. Would have loved to have read it the week we were there. So check the book out!

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room facing the Marina!

A quick and unexpected detour to Cairns for business was made bearable because of this hotel. I will definitely be returning for a relaxing holiday in the near future.
The negative reviews I read about this hotel are completely unfounded.

Nothing to tell. Perfect. Staff very friendly. Very good view on the Marina.
Room not noisy, spacious and very clean, confortable. Location perfect very near to the quay, shops in the hotel, restaurants near the hotel, near the Marina, 15 minutes from the train station. It was a pleasure to stay 3 nights.
