Be immediately captivated by the magnificent views that enthral you as you enter Shangri-La Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi. The grand golden-white main building reflects in the swimming pool by the entrance. Your senses are enchanted by the hotel's striking architecture, with its fine Arabic décor, full of warm tones and organic textures. The hotel is connected by a winding waterway featuring Arabic traditional boats, known as abras. You lie back, wholly relaxed, while the abra slowly meanders throughout the verdant garden scenery. 


While the hotel is conveniently located near the airport, golf course and city centre, its lush garden landscapes place it in a serene, faraway world of its own. Situated in the Qaryat Al Beri complex on the banks of Maqta Creek, guests are afforded amazing city views. Sitting on a 1km stretch of private beach, the resort wonderfully mixes exclusivity and privacy with convenience, being near to shops, restaurants and other attractions. Abu Dhabi International Airport is just a short 10-minute drive away, while the city centre is 15 minutes away.


Each of the 213 rooms features a balcony or terrace, providing guests breathtaking views of the canal. All rooms are elegantly appointed with modern facilities and Arabian architectural flare. To enjoy the pinnacle of privacy and extravagance, there are six spectacular four-bedroom villas, each with a private pool. To cater to the needs of extended stay guests, the hotel also has 161 serviced apartments ranging from studios to four-bedrooms.


Guests can enjoy a wide range of Health Club facilities, pristine beaches and relaxing pools. Riding on its own abras provide a relaxing method of transportation that heightens your senses and fully immerses you in this Arabian oasis. Get dropped off at the hotel's souk, a traditional Arabian market, where you can peruse traditional artefacts, paintings, jewellery and clothing. After, indulge in rejuvenating spa treatments at the renowned CHI, whose skilled therapists' hands will lull you into a state of bliss using ancient healing philosophies.

The resort features four restaurants and three bars, boasting of some of the exquisite international dining experiences. Feast on authentic Cantonese dishes ranging from BBQ buns to whole roast Peking duck. Hoi An is a contemporary and vibrant restaurant that provides comfy seating in which to enjoy both traditional and modern Vietnamese dishes of the highest quality. For those with a preference for European fare, visit Bord Eau for its delectable French cuisine in a glamorous setting. Enjoy pre- and post dinner drinks at Al Hanah Bar, or the informal Lobby Lounge, or relax by the pool deck surrounded by aromatic shisha scents and views dramatic architecture against the beach backdrop.
