Lonely Planet review

Shangri-La is the mythical paradise first described in James Hilton’s 1933 novel Lost Horizon. In Dubai, it’s a business hotel imbued with an understatedly sexy vibe. Rooms are a winner in the looks department, with their blond woods, soft leather headboards and free-standing tubs. The range of first-rate restaurants is superb, as is the sizzling Ikandy rooftop bar.

Our independent authors have visited Shangri-La Hotel, Dubai and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Dubai.
