'We have done nothing. So many plans for trips and such before we got here, but as soon as the bags went down so did we. We loved it and thank you so much for being such magnificent hosts - first class all the way!'
'Our time spent at Shangri-La will always be etched in our minds and memories as one of our favourite holidays. The simplicity of just enjoying the amazing views and breathing in the best of the valley has been an indulgent pleasure that has been welcomed by our whole family. The kids have had the time of their life, exploring, learning, discovering and just being free in such a wonderful place. While my husband and I enjoyed relaxing, talking and remembering who we are again. Pure bliss!! Thank you - your hospitality is unrivalled!'
