Hotel Review: Shangri-La Bengaluru
Shangri-La Bengaluru just opened a few months ago and thus looks brand new. We had the pleasure of staying at the property for one night and were utterly amazed by the great room. The location of Shangri-La Bengaluru may not be perfect, but it’s convenient to both, the airport and the city center. Learn more in our hotel review!
When arriving at Shangri-La Bengaluru at noon, we were in a little rush as we had an appointment for lunch at The Oberoi Bengaluru.
- Classification: Five Stars
- Room Category: Deluxe Room
- Month of Stay: February
This meant that we were a little disappointed that the check-in was a little slow and the luggage took too long to get to our room – not the perfect first impression in a hotel review.
Nevertheless, everyone was very friendly and helpful upon we entered Shangri-La Bengaluru.
Deluxe Room at Shangri-La Bengaluru
The Deluxe Room is the basic room category at Shangri-La Bengaluru.
With 41 square meters (440 square feet), the room already has a decent size, but an even more amazing design.
The room looks very modern, but is cozy at the same time. The warm design makes spending time in the room very enjoyable. As Shangri-La Bengaluru also is the only skyscraper in the approximate, the view is quite nice even from the lower floors.
The Deluxe Room comes with an entrance area with several wardrobes and the bathroom to the right.
Following is the main room with the King Bed with two bedside tables to the right and a little board with the large flat screen above to the left.
To the end of the room, right next to the floor-to-ceiling windows, there’s a working table with a comfortable ergonomic chair and also a nice little couch with another table.
What’s worth noting about the Deluxe Room at Shangri-La Bengaluru is that it comes with carpet rather than parquet, which is rare for modern luxury hotels.
Bathroom of the Deluxe Room
Pretty much as amazing as the Deluxe Room itself is the bathroom, which we usually have a special section about in hotel reviews.
What you can expect at Shangri-La Bengaluru is the highest level of luxury, which means that there is not only a large walk-in rain shower, but also a separated toilet and a deep-soaking tub.
The whole bathroom of the Deluxe Room looks just fabulous with all the marble and a very warm design. The only minor issue may be the single sink, but as this one comes with a lot of storage room, it is all right.
Even though I didn’t know the toiletry brand “Kama” beforehand, I have to admit that the quality is great!
Pool & Gym at Shangri-La Bengaluru
While we didn’t have the pleasure to enjoy either a meal in the evening or breakfast in the morning due to our tiredness and an early departure, I at least checked out the leisure facilities at Shangri-La Bengaluru.
There’s just one fitting word for those: wow! The pool is located on a large terrace and looks like a tranquil oasis. While the view may not be that great, the pool with all the plants around it really feels like you are in the middle of nature.
There’s also kind of a Jacuzzi next to the pool which, however, was not really warm. There are also several loungers, some even in the water, which invite you to relax and forget the crazy traffic in Bengaluru.
The gym at Shangri-La Bengaluru is at least as amazing as it is not only extremely large, but also equipped with the most modern machines available.
Your cardio or strength training is also assisted by a personal trainer available free of charge.
Bottom line Shangri-La Bengaluru
It’s a shame that we were not able to enjoy any kind of dining at Shangri-La Bengaluru, but the hotel absolutely delivered nevertheless. Even the basic room category is great and comes with an amazing bathroom.
The pool and the gym hit the spot and are a real oasis after a day in Bengaluru. Something else worth mentioning is the staff which tries to help you with everything you need. We were even accompanied to a photo studio to get some pictures done for our SIM Card, an experience I’ll write a special post about.
Overall, I’d definitely return to the Shangri-La Bengaluru, which definitely is one of the best options available in Bengaluru! In just a few weeks, we’ll also release a hotel review of The Oberoi Bengaluru, so you’ll have another option to compare with Shangri-La Bngaluru!
