It is a real pleasure to open doors onto rooms as refined as these, adorned with silk! Indeed, most of the objects and fabrics here were made especially for the Shangri-La. The aim here was, once again, to recreate a classic European style but also incorporate hints of Chinese culture (e.g. the Chinese chest of drawers with the television on top). The bed sheets are the divine creation of the major Italian label Frette, and the chandeliers are crystal.
The lighting has not been neglected either, with reading lamps, wall lights and many adjustable indirect lights to create the atmosphere that you want. The presence of mirrors also reflect the setting well.
There are 531 rooms here which are divided into 7 categories, and 34 suites.
The smallest room is 440 sq ft in size, but most of them measure about 470 sq ft. The main difference between the various rooms is the view and the different floors on which they are located. The 'Executive' rooms are to be found on the higher floors. The rooms are provided with a very comfortable 'chaise longue', a minibar containing a very refined selection of drinks (and crystal glasses in the suites to help you enjoy your drink even more), a Nespresso coffee machine, free Internet access, a large plasma screen television on the wall showing many channels (and films on request), a DVD player, a free safe, a telephone, quiet individual air conditioning, a Bose sound system, and so on. All the possible plug sockets imaginable can also be found on the desk.
Thanks to the flat screen television built into the wall in the large and impressive marble-clad bathrooms, you can watch your favourite programme while you sit back and soak. The bathtub and shower are separate, and so is the toilet. There is also a hair-dryer, a magnifying mirror, and a large selection of hospitality products by Occitane (or Aqua di Parma in the suites), dressing gowns and slippers, etc. If you look above the headboards on the beds in the suites, you'll see some superb paintings. A delicious traditional tea is served when you arrive, and room service and a butler are both available 24 hours a day.
