A Quiet Paradise in a Busy City
Located in Hong Kong’s financial district, the Island Shangri-La Hotel is a mere two minutes from the gigantic Pacific Place mall. But as its name suggests, the hotel aims to provide its guests with an “urban sanctuary.” On its 56 sprawling floors, guests will find more than 500 comfortable rooms and suites along with eight restaurants and bars–and many other world-class facilities besides.
A Calming Escape
The guest rooms at the Island Shangri-La feature rich fabrics and Asian decor–as well as views of Victoria Peak. The health club on level 8 offers massages, facials, and hatha yoga classes. Those who like to swim but don’t want to brave the ocean waves can take advantage of the hotel’s jacuzzi and its indoor and outdoor swimming pools.
The Island Shangri-La’s restaurants offer many different fine dining experiences. Guests can try Japanese food at Nadaman, seafood at the Lobster Bar & Grill, and traditional Cantonese at the Summer Palace. The hotel also offers a great deal on its website: order breakfast and get a free room upgrade.
