For most travellers, luxury is a must, no matter where you are.

The main hotel brand is famous for its selection of fine dining and other hospitality options.
Founded back in 1971 with its first hotel in Singapore, Shangri-La is a relatively old player in the hotel market, and they have set a high standard for competitors coming in to the market today. In total, the brand encompasses over 95 hotels throughout Asia, Australia, Europe, Middle East and North America.
Shangri-La Hotel Inspiration
Shangri-La was initially inspired by the mythical oasis which played a pivotal role in �Lost Horizon’ written by James Hilton in 1933. This paradise, or oasis, is represented throughout all of the hotels which fall under the brand, and you will know exactly why if you are lucky enough to be a guest one day.
There are several hotel brands which fall under Shangri-La, they include; Shangri-La Hotels, Shangri-La Resorts, Traders Hotels, Hotel Jen and Kerry Hotels.Each sub-group of hotels features its own quirky characteristics, however the overall essence and feel of the hotels is much the same exquisite.
Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts
Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts are both high-end brands and are the premier hotels when all five are considered. Offering guests the epitome of luxury, and the chance to simply relax, because what else would you do on a holiday? Shangri-La Resorts differs slightly, as its main target is families looking to soak up some sun and pool time. It offers guests a chance to immerse themselves in the local culture whilst at the same time allowing them to rejuvenate and relax. Both brands offer world-class dining and culinary experiences.
Traders hotels are for the savvy businessman. You will find yourself in a very professional and quaint setting, located in the heart of the Central Business District. Traders offer guests a simple, yet functional experience when travelling to work, providing the opportunity to work hard and play hard… or relax.
Shangri-La Choice Hotel with Panoramic Views
Kerry Hotels targets travellers who are looking for a cultural, spirited spark in their trip. They are subtly located with panoramic views and still connected to the main hub of the city. Moreover, Hotel Jen offers guests a simple, mid-range experience, mainly focussing on unexpected adventures, whilst still delivering a high quality and comfortable familiarity.
