We were travelling from Sydney to the Middle East as a family of 3 and had booked 2 nights here at the Shangri-La. We picked the hotel because of its beautiful Arabian architecture and it looked fantastic. The hotel was incredible. The swimming pool area and rooms were fantastic. We were upgraded to a Premier room on arrival because we needed to fit an extra bed, the room was fantastic but didn't have a great view being on level 2. The service at the Shangri-La was absolutely fantastic, special thanks to Shiva who was so friendly and great throughout our whole stay. The hotels restaurants looked good however we only had a chance to dine at the pool bar and the main breakfast buffet which both were good. The only downsides to this hotel are that it is about 20 minutes drive to get into the main corniche of Abu Dhabi so if you want something in the middle of town this wouldn't be a great choice, and the beaches at the hotel were pretty average being just in a creek/river and not actually the sea. Overall we had a magical stay and would return in a second!! Thank you to the team at the Shangri-La
