Shangri-La Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi
Ranked #11 of 128 Hotels in Abu Dhabi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 January 2014

I had a wonderful stay the hotel is beautiful with friendly staff ready to. I stayed in the Horizon Club Deluxe Room which was very spacious, with plenty of hanging space and storage. The bathroom was well appointed as all the Shangri la hotels are. The towels were fluffy, toiletries are quality and they even provide laundry powder. One thing that I did like was the use of a non digital clock, I really dont like the glow of the time at night and I am sure I am not the only one. Overall the room was excellent and so clean 10/10. The staff in the Horizon lounge were wonderful they went out of there way to make my stay enjoyable. In many hotels with these executive lounges you are just a number and the staff dont always chat not at the Shangri la the staff are very friendly. The restaurants are worth a try as well I loved the french restaurant Bourdeux it was magical from the decor staff and food its a winner. The facilities are amazing and the Chi day spa is convenient. I am definitely planning another visit next time it will be longer.

Our first itme in Abu Dhabi after 10 years of Dubai at The Madinat, Royal Meridien, Grosvenor House etc, I can tell you this hotel is every bit as good or better BUT different. Firstly the good points, the hotel is quite brilliant, wonderful room, we had a premier room 414, fantastic food everywhere and just the best staff ever. But beware Abu Dhabi, do not expect Dubai pazzaz, excitement and buzz this is a quiet relaxing place at a different pace, we would go back perhaps As an extra we booked the hotel limo to the airport and were amazed to be met at the airport, luggage whisked away and escorted to passport control, wow.

We really enjoyed every day of our stay in this hotel. The whole atmosphere was very friendly, the room we stayed was very comfortable with a direct access to the garden. We usually had our lunch at our terrace and the quality of food was really good.
Thank you very much for making our stay so pleasant!

Room Tip: Premier room with the direct access to the garden

Treat the staff as extended family and friends and the return is second to none.
From arriving from the airport to leaving to return home nothing was ever too much trouble no matter how strange the request or how many times you change your mind.
Far enough from the city centre for peace and quiet but a short car ride and you're right in the middle of all that is happening.
As close to perfection as you can get and the best hotel in Abu Dhabi, yes I have stayed at others in the area.

Room Tip: The room we stayed in was first class. plenty of space and easy to live with for the period of our s...

You always think it cannot be better but it can. This was now the third stay ad it has been great. excellent breakfasts, unfortunately i am somebody getting hungry only after 10 a.m. The infinity t pool with its view to the Mosque is incredible, Restaurant choices in the hotel are big. You have to dine in the Vietnamese restaurant. And the service cannot be better.

A little late reviewing but this was an absolutely delightful hotel. Very spacious and well-equipped bedroom and bathroom with l'occitane products which are frequently topped up. Hotel grounds were stunning and within a few minutes walk to nearby Souk or you can use the free Abra Taxi which is a lovely touch. The hotel has a main buffet restaurant and a number of a-la carte dining including a chinese restaurant which I can highly recommend. The breakfast and buffet in the main restaurant was stunning. So much choice at all times. I did not take up the offer of HB when booking as was worried the food/choice would be limited. How wrong I was. All restaurants are quite expensive to dine in (but worth the money) and so if i ever did return, I would book HB option. There are a number of pools dotted about the place but the main pool near the restaurant is the only one that serves drinks. I used the pool bar most days. The view of the Mosque was amazing and the poolside service was excellent. We were regularly brought water, fruit or a little refreshing fruit juice. The nearby Souk also has a variety of restaurants, shops and a Starbucks but is only little. I thought it would be alot bigger from reviews I read. I used the spa which I can recommend. The Hotel is a little out of the way but only a short taxi ride away to the Corniche, Malls etc. I think we paid on average 45 dirham which is roughly £8. The hotel does offer a complementary shuttle service to most locations a few times a day incl the Mosque, AD Mall and Yas waterpark. All in all, a fantastic stay. Would return. Had a very enjoyable break here and the weather was lovely.

Poor information system.
I had to pay twice the rooms before re-funding just because inefficient reservation and transfer system.
It is incredible to waste so much time because of errors in the check out bills.
