Peaceful sanctuary in the most beautiful setting.
Our family of 4 stayed at Shangri La for 10 days in July, It's a great location for getting away from it all and finding peace. The house is nestled beautifully in the rainforest with extensive grounds to explore. The accommodation has all the facilities you need and whilst there is no mobile reception the internet worked well and it was great the phone could be put away. (There is a landline available in the house).
The pool is lovely with the most gorgeous views of the rainforest. Next to the pool, a day bed, and outdoor shower facilities. Perfect. The outdoor BBQ was used and the outdoor table setting is spacious, and great to hang out with the background garden lighting.
I would say the place is a little tired, but to be honest, it didn't distract from the general charming feel of this space. Also, we were supposed to get one complimentary clean over the 10 days. This didn't happen as planned. Again though, it didn't take away our enjoyment of the home overall.
It is 30 minutes from Port Douglas. It was worth the drive to be able to enjoy the home as much as we did. The drive takes you through Mossman, and through the Sugar Cane fields. The house is only about 20 mins from the Daintree River Crossing.
If I was in the area again, I would certainly consider revisiting.
Mee Chee Chan, we agree a beautiful setting . The house will have a small reburbish end of year. Thankyou for staying and hope to see you back.
First of all, the property has nothing to do with Shagri La hotel chain. If you need anything, Hans is very helpful. Pool, spa and terrace very nice. Pool can be heated (we did not know). On our departure pool boy came and heated up to 32 degrees for next guests. Normally about 26, which is fine for swimming.
Upper windows in bathroom spa very dirty. Interior especially living room needs new furniture. Sofa lots of stains. Bedrooms no cupboard, just aluminium frame. Tap water drinkable but rusty taste, big bottles of water available. Bottles have been refilled (funny taste).
Guests should do one load of towels when leaving. Detergent powder available for two loads only!
I critizise, because the property wants to be situated high end as an executive retreat. There is lots to do!
Thanks for staying with us, and we appreciate the review and we have taken your comments on board for review. We hope to see you again one day.
It was a slice of paradise!
After a long, cold, Victorian wintry, Shangri La offered the lluxury and privacy that we were seeking. A large, warm pool with spectacular vistas made the stay an outstanding experience.
Thanks for staying with us, and we appreciate the review. We hope to see you again one day.
If you want peace, seclusion and luxury near to some of the most stunning and unique places on Earth, then this is the place to stay
