I had the good fortune to stay here for the whole month of Feb and would have happily stayed for another ! We had a one bed serviced apartment in the residencies and it was absolutely beautiful. The apartment was huge, with everything you could want, and more. The most peaceful and relaxing suroundings and fantastic weather, which got hotter by the day. The hotel provides a shuttle bus (free ) to take you to four of the large shopping malls. Not just on certain days,but every day, and there's various time slots. The Shopping malls are about 30-45 minutes away and well worth a visit, expensive though, but probably great if your filthy rich. i also loved the Souk in the resort, and the very friendly staff in the supermarket, visit Choco-la for the most fabulous cakes and chocolates. I used the ladies gym frequently and most of the time i had it to myself, excellent equipment and very nice staff. Yoga and Zumba classes too. Dubai well worth a visit, only about one and a half hours drive.
The Shangri-la Hotel is right at the top of my favourite's list of pure luxury, but most importantly, what make's it extra special, is all the staff that work there, especially our friend Hin who serviced the apartments. Dreaded having to leave, i hope i can return ..someday.
