The Experience

The enchantment is immediate at Shangri-La Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi. As you make your way around the large hotel complex, the fascination heightens. The hotel is connected by a winding waterway featuring Arabic traditional boats, known as abras. You lie back, utterly relaxed, while the abra slowly meanders throughout the verdant garden scenery.

The boat drops you at the hotel's souk, a traditional Arabian market. There you browse through the enticing variety of shops selling traditional artifacts, paintings, jewellery and clothes. A post-shopping stroll along the private beach finds you just in time to catch the sunset. Majestic orange rays spread their soft light across the glittering canal and the white beach, entrancing your soul.

After your walk, you decide to indulge in a Four Hands Harmonizing Massage at CHI, The Spa. The skilled therapists' hands lull you into a state of bliss, far removed from this world. Pampered and at peace, you return to your luxurious room. In the distance, visions of traditional Arabic domes and minarets complete the enchantment.
