An Eden on the Sands.
Shangri-La: an imaginary place born in 1933 from the pen of James Hilton who, in his novel “Lost Horizon“, describes it as an Eden hidden somewhere … in Tibet. Since then, the term has entered the myth and the collective imagination, as a synonym of Paradise Lost.
It is therefore used, when one wishes to describe a feeling of peace, tranquility, suspension of time and detachment from daily worries. Ben therefore lent itself to becoming the symbolic name of one of the largest hotel chains in the world.
This time we bring our readers to Dubai: once a small fishing village overlooking the Persian Gulf, in the last 30 years Dubai has become a big and futuristic city where the financial economy, real estate and the one dedicated to Information Technology are concentrated and have gradually replaced, together with tourism, the proceeds from the extraction of oil, relatively scarce in this Emirate.
And it is right on the extraordinary Skyline of this modern city overlooking the Shangri-La Dubai Hotel. Also in turn, located in an amazing 42-storey double skyscraper about 200 meters high. Here, visitors will enjoy a well-earned rest, immersed in the comfortable and refined luxury of this “Eden” rediscovered. 302 rooms and suites (in addition to 126 serviced apartments, for long-term stays), many of which with a view of the futuristic Burj Khalifa Tower, obviously equipped with all the most modern comforts and services.
There are 6 restaurants and bars available to guests, including Vietnamese HOI AN and Chinese SHANG PALACE. There is of course also the SPA and the fitness centers, to relax, take care of yourself and keep fit. The IKANDY ULTRALOUNGE terrace is particularly charming, where you can sip an open-air cocktail (when it’s not too hot, then only at certain times of the year) by the pool, with the splendid view of the Burj Khalifa and the Financial District illuminated at sunset. It is obviously possible to organize events, meetings or fairytale weddings in the special meeting rooms, ball rooms and on the rooftop on the 42nd floor where, if possible, the view is even more engaging.
