  • 8.0.Very good

    Lovely resort

    Overall we had a lovely time at the resort. Initially they gave us a room that was freshly painted and smelled horrible upon entry. When we complained they gave us another room and we were thankful to check in a bit early. The breakfast was great and the rooms were quiet and new.

  • 6.0.Good

    The setting of the hotel is beautiful. The staff are friendly and helpful. Restaurant prices were too high. Wine was vastly overpriced. Breakfast was fair but not perhaps 5*. We stayed at al Waha hoping it would be as wonderful as other Shangrila hotels we have stayed at in Cairns and Sydney. Alas not at all. Very disappointing.
