Floating around Your Shangri-La
The Shangri-La Hotel sits like a crown just opposite Abu Dhabi Island on the mainland of the Arabian Peninsula. The hotel's palatial appeal is complimented by a marvelous view of the iconic Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, extravagant archways, and fascinating winding waterways where an abra (local boat) will take you on a peaceful tour of the resort. Continuing the experience, your abra will drop you at a souk where you can buy traditional clothes, jewelry, and other souvenirs. Your every need will be thoughtfully attended to on-site, and the resort provides tour bookings, complimentary shuttle service to the city, boat service, and even helicopter airport transfers.
