We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Shangri-la Tanjung Aru. We requested for a quiet room and this was provided to us. Kevin, a staff at the Horizon Lounge was very hospitable and helpful throughout our stay there. The hotel rooms are updated with latest amenities ie. Bluetooth speakers, smart TVs and is very clean. We really enjoyed our stay and are already looking forward to going back!
