An Escape for Relaxation
Shangri-La Hotel Surabaya is a hotel where the city disappears, and a tranquil oasis awaits.
hangri-La Surabaya is one of my favourite hotels. Every time I go to Surabaya, Shangri-La is always my top choice for accommodation. What I like most about Shangri-La is the service and hospitality of the staff. Shangri-La Hotel, Surabaya has a warm and homey atmosphere from the moment I walk in. If you are into aromatherapy like me, you will love the signature ShangriLa scent. Every time I enter the hotel, the aroma is so calm and relaxing. My room featured a warm and cosy ambience with a stunning view of the city skyline. The room boasted an enhanced workstation for all business needs. My room offers a full range of amenities and services, including flat-screen LCD TV equipped with 50 cable channels and a dedicated high-speed internet connection. All of that enables me to enjoy staying in my room all day. The other thing I love about this hotel is the food. ShangriLa Hotel Surabaya is famous as one of the best dining venues in the city. This luxurious hotel has five elegant and delicious restaurants and bars. I usually have breakfast at JAMOO, an all-day café and restaurant. Upon entering JAMOO, I am greeted by beautifully displayed artworks, including carved wood panels, murals and mirrors, reflecting Indonesia’s rich cultural diversity within a contemporary setting. There are six open kitchen stations that offer a variety of antipasti, sushi, a hot pot as well as a noodle section, a Chinese wok station, dessert station with specialties such as ice cream teppanyaki, a flowing chocolate fountain and a range of traditional jamu (traditional health drinks). All the food is tasty. Shang Palace and Nishimura are also my other favourite restaurants at Shangri-La Hotel Surabaya. Shang Palace is an elegant and tranquil restaurant that features classic provincial Chinese cuisine for lunch and dinner. My favourite food here is dim sum and Chilled Mango Cream with Sago. It contains fresh mango puree and sago pearls that deliver a sweet end to a satisfying meal. Nishimura is a popular Japanese restaurant in town. The Japanese food here is delicious, and when I stay in ShangriLa, I always visit Nishimura. The venue is a perfect example of how cuisine, art and service come together to create an exquisite dining experience. From sushi and noodles to tempura and hot-pots, with delicious yakiniku and teppanyaki sets, Nishimura offers a whole spectrum of Japanese cuisine. A stay at Shangri-La Hotel, Surabaya would not be complete without visiting CHI, The Spa. It has a selection of treatments that showcase Javanese culture and well-being traditions, such as Balinese Massage, Maduranese Harmony, Spirit of Java and Rempah Body Scrub. I decide to opt for the Balinese Massage. It is utterly relaxing, leaving me refreshed and looking forward to my return to Jakarta.
