The Shangi-La in Abu Dhabi has all the luxury one expects from a Shangri-La property, together with a dash of the exotic Middle East in its design, furnishings and finishes.
I stayed for a week for a residential training course. The staff at the breakfast buffet on the first morning were polite and welcoming, but by day 3 were welcoming me back like an old and valued friend; housekeeping staff similarly recognised me and greated me warmly after a day or two. Conference facilities were terrific and, again, the staff provided exceptional service. The gym fell a little short of expectations, with not all of the cardio equipment being in working order. The location was excellent, as were the several inhouse restaurants that we sampled, as well as the buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
