Island Shangri-La Hong Kong - one of the finest hotels in the world
18 August 2012
We stayed at the Island Shangri-La Hong Kong for 3 days for my partner's birthday in May 2012 - but it turned out to be a treat for both of us! After many years of travel for business and leisure, we consider the Island Shangri-La Hong Kong to be one of the finest hotels in the world... the level of luxury and service is some of the highest we have experienced in our vast travels.
Upon arrival at the hotel, we were greeted by Don Lau and Peony from the management team and quickly escorted to our Horizon Club Harbour View Room – after an 8 hour flight from Australia, this seamless and personalised check-in process was a welcome relief.
Our Horizon Club Harbour View Room exceeded our expectations, and the little extras such as the personalised stationary, bottle of red wine and hand-made chocolates were most appreciated.
The service we experienced at the hotel during our stay was extraordinary and I have gone to great lengths (including a hand written letter to the GM) to ensure our thanks were passed down the line to the wonderful team.
The highlight of our stay was the Culinary Journey – an unforgettable dining experience, and one we will be talking about for many years to come!
After many years of travel for both work and pleasure, we are delighted to have finally found a place we can honestly say is the epitome of perfection. We can't recommend a stay at the Island Shangri-La highlighly enough, and very much look forward to returning in the near future.
