shangrila_carnesRating :5strylshgrila_cairnsLogo

Ideally located in the heart of Cairns, Shangri-La Hotel, The Marina, Cairns overlooks Marlin Marina, Trinity Bay and the green mountains that frame this jewel of a city, famous as a jumping-off point for the Great Barrier Reef.

The Hotel – which recently completed a comprehensive AUD 35 million redevelopment – is a 10-minute drive to Cairns International Airport, a moment’s walk to the Cairns Convention Centre, and a short stroll to the Esplanade Lagoon, the Pier Shopping, Dining Promenade and the Great Barrier Reef Fleet Departure Terminal.

The Hotel offers airy, modern accommodations with elegant furniture and spectacular views of the Marina. And with the renowned Horizon Club, Shangri-La is the only hotel in the area to offer a true five-star club floor facility that distinguishes it from other Cairns hotels.

As the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, Cairns’ core attractions revolve around the water. Tour operators are abundant, with opportunities to indulge in adrenaline activities such as rafting, Bungee jumping and four wheel drive tours. For the more sedate, river cruises and rainforest walks beckon. There’s also a world-class golf course located approximately 25 minutes drive away from the hotel.
