Shangri-La Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi
Ranked #9 of 129 Hotels in Abu Dhabi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 April 2014

This hotel may not be at the hot resorts of Yas Island or Saadayat but having stayed in many Abu Dhabi and Dubai hotels this is the best.

Wonderful spacious room with balcony, excellent eating choices but most of all the staff all surpass any expectations in the way the anticipate needs and provide service with a smile.

Relaxing luxury break.

The Good - Stayed 7 nights. Book in was smooth and efficient, personally shown to our room.
The Room was large, immaculate and had a very comfy bed. The Housekeeping staff were very efficient and kept us well stocked with fresh fruit and toiletries.

Every member of staff we met was friendly, helpful and attentive. Nothing was to much trouble. Everyone had a smile on their face.

The Pool Staff were excellent. Providing iced flannels, water, fresh fruit on a skewer and sunglasses cleaning which was a nice touch. Moving beds to chase/avoid the sun was never an issue to them.

We ate in the lobby lounge for a casual meal, plus afternoon tea. Excellent quality and service.
The Pearls and Caviar, a beautiful restaurant, again excellent quality and service. The only issue was the choice of music by the resident DJ. It was more suitable for a nightclub than a high class restaurant.
The evening buffet was excellent quality with a good selection, although we did feel it was a little overpriced.
Breakfast buffet had a fantastic selection, the pastries being the best we had ever tasted.

The boat ride to the Souk was a great touch, as was the water taxi along the bay.

Being met at the airport by Shangri La staff and assisted to check-in certainly makes you feel special.

The bad - Our holiday coming to an end. We really could not think of anything to criticise or make adverse comment upon.

This is fantastic Hotel which I would recommend to family and friends. Thank you Shangri La.

I was allocated the Shangri-la hotel for work, and stayed for two weeks. The staff were very helpful and courteous. The room was sensationl. lovely view over the river towards the Sheik Zayed Mosque. The bathroom was very nice, big and very well appointed.

After arriving back from work, my friends and I always stopped in at the foyer coffee shop and had tea and hot chocolate. The staff were perfect - service was excellent.

The souk next door was handy and had some great restaurants as well as nice shopping.

From the moment we landed till the moment we left I can't fail this hotel! What a gem! I booked a pick up service from hotel for 250 AED a bit price in compare to normal taxis but what a way to start a holiday ! A representative from hotel was waiting for us at the bag carousel picked up our bags on the trolley waiting the car was fantastic with refreshing cold water, fresh wet towels.. WOW
The choking in process was smoothI was checking in my hubby booked us on s free shuttle to town so within half an hour we were showered and on our way to discover wonderful Abu Dhabi! The whole stay was fantastic! The staff couldn't be more helpful. The highs were visit to viceroy..
On the check out we got a taxi, while we were in the taxi hotel contacted hotels rep in the airport he was waiting for us and walked us to the check in caring out bags. From start to finish a wonderful holiday! Thank you!

Stayed in Shangri La last year to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary and it was the best decision we made. Excellent service, friendly and helpful staff, comfortable garden view room. Check in was fast and smooth and when informed Receptionist about our wedding anniversary we received a cake to our room with bouquet of roses. We are planning again to stay there this year to celebrate our 6 th wedding anniversary :)

Very good hotel. Liked everything. All was just TOP TOP level. Just one small minus- not many activities for very small kids, or maybe there were and just did not notice that :)
Thanks a lot to hotel!

Stayed here for two nights for my husband's birthday. The service was exceptional from the moment we checked in and were helped to our room. We stayed in an Executive Suite which was huge with lots of lovely extras including fresh roses, wide selection of teas and coffees and Bulgari toiletries. The balcony was huge overlooking the beach and Abu Dhabi mosque.

As part of our room we were entitled to use the Horizon Club lounge. They served afternoon tea and then alcoholic drinks and canapés between 6pm and 8pm with a nice terrace to sit outside on. We could also use it for breakfast but chose to eat in the main restaurant where there was a vast selection. Probably one of the best breakfast selections I have seen in a Middle East hotel.

The pool here is lovely and a good temperature which made a nice change from the freezing temperatures hotels normally cool it to. Nice touches during the day such as a cool box with water, someone who comes and cleans your sunglasses and offers you fruit. The pool bar is good and again fantastic service.

We ate in Pearls and Caviar which has a great setting over the water overlooking the mosque. They also presented my husband with a birthday cake which was a nice touch, even though there was no way we would be able to eat it all as it was huge. There are also lots of other restaurants in the Souk next to the hotel including the Meat Co where we also ate.

My only complaint about this hotel is we couldn't stay longer.

Room Tip: Executive Suite is huge and access to the Horizon Club is an added bonus.
