Myself and my partner stayed at the Shangri La for 4 nights. They were the best four nights in a hotel I have ever spent. The premier room we stayed in was spacious and beautiful, with free wi-fi, a lovely bathroom with L'occitaine products, a private balcony and a well-stocked minibar. The buffet breakfast was unlike any hotel breakfast we have ever experienced. If you want it - they got it, including a chocolate fountain! The facilities were vast and luxurious; including a well-equipped gym, separate men/women's change room with their own spa/sauna rooms, and 5 pools all in different areas of the complex. Not to mention the staff were all incredibly hospitable and attentive. Our personal housekeeper took the initiative of providing us with a mousepad after noticing that we did not have one, without us even having to ask. The hotel's french restaurant, Bordeau was phenomenal, both the food and the service was exceptional. We ordered the oysters, duck breast and beef, which were all suberb and finished with the chocolate extravaganza for dessert. That night we ate like kings. The only downside is the location, as it is a fair drive from Abu Dhabi's main attractions, luckily the taxis are relatively cheap and readily available. Overall, a fantastic hotel which I would recommend to anybody staying in Abu Dhabi, we were sad to leave, however have high hopes that we will return in the near future.
