Shangri-La hotels are synonymous with luxury worldwide, and Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi is no exception. You’ll be surrounded by magnificent views no matter which decadent room you stay in as all have a terrace or balcony which is beach facing, or pool side. The hotel boasts impressive architecture and fine Arabic decor that’s full of warm tones and organic textures.
Winding through the hotel is a waterway, where you can relax and lie back on an abra – a traditional Arabic boat. Take in the beautiful and lush garden scenery that engulfs you before the abra drops you at the hotel’s souk – a traditional Arabian market that sells traditional artifacts, paintings, jewellery and clothes.
Rated among the finest in Abu Dhabi, the restaurants at Shangri-La offer an international range of cuisines. Pamper your palate with authentic Chinese cuisine at Shangri-La’s signature restaurant, Shang Palace, or indulge yourself in some superb French cuisine at fine-dining restaurant, Bord Eau.
With two private beaches, and a wide array of fun activities such as fitness classes, swimming with certified instructors and an abundance of pools to relax in, you won’t even need to leave the hotel.
