Truly luxury hotels have the ability to engage their guests in a distinctive, exclusive and meaningful way not found elsewhere. They create a certain mystique that becomes almost addictive, bringing guests back time and time again. That’s exactly the luxurious experience that Hotel Shangri-la’s owner and CEO Tamie Adaya has envisioned and meticulously created.
Not only is the hotel an authentic Streamline Moderne design from the latter part of the Art Deco period, it is the nexus of culture and sensuality at the edge of the Pacific that resonates with guests. The hotel is an architectural gem and a landmark, and the epitome of luxury.
“We live and breathe a distinct luxury style that is embedded in our hotel’s culture,” explained Adaya. “In order to offer the ‘best of the best’ to our young-minded sophisticated guests of any age, we empower our staff to consistently deliver on luxury service expectations in bold and unique ways that ultimately differentiate our brand from other hotel experiences.”
The hotel’s 70 luxury rooms and suites offer world-class panoramic ocean views, where guests can indulge in a long-term leisure or business stay, or enjoy a romantic escape while watching the sunset or moonrise over the Pacific.
Today, the concept of luxury is not just about extravagant hotel features. It’s about curating the luxury touches that provide a comfortable and exuberant, yet deeply inspiring and exhilarating, getaway. Hotel Shangri-la’s distinctive luxury features include 24-hour concierge service by an international staff; lush garden courtyard with elevated pool and cabanas; The Dining Room, a first-class epicurean restaurant; Suite 700 – with 360 degree view rooftop bar and lounge; suites with ocean views; lightning speed wireless Internet access; around-the-clock in-room dining; indulgent bath products; and plush robes and beach towels.
Luxury is about the convergence of a wide array of exclusive offerings, a connection with engaging service staff and opportunities for unique cultural experiences that form a truly memorable and indulgent experience. It’s also about the culture of this iconic landmark hotel.
From Adaya’s global vision, the hotel’s brand propagates to every aspect of the design, atmosphere and service. It relies heavily her personal taste and astute sense of aesthetics. A strong and visionary leader, her goal is for Hotel Shangri-la’s exhilarating and elevating personality-driven brand to inform every aspect of the guest experience and vividly communicate and share her unique and particular point of view.
“Guests want to feel good when they stay at a luxury hotel, and they also want to relax,” said Adaya. “They desire a sense of escape, but they also crave vibrancy. Our brand perfectly reconciles these juxtaposed elements where style, design, comfort, and a sense of intimacy offer the ultimate in luxury.”
The property’s uniquely authentic, experiential and indulgent culture creates an atmosphere and ambiance for a wide variety of guests from presidents and celebrities to artists, tastemakers, insiders and world travelers, and everyone in between.
A renowned social architect with a passion for bringing together creative people from film, fashion, art, jewelry, music, design and literature, Adaya thrives on inspiring social exchanges. She regularly hosts popular invite-only salons in the Shangri-la Dining Room with an intimate group of exciting, dynamic and influential people from diverse backgrounds – gathering for fun or learning – serving as a nexus of culture.
Hotel Shangri-la’s luxury touches and cultural delights are apparent in many small details. Everyone goes above and beyond to ensure guests have a truly personalized and distinctively memorable experience – and enjoy their own personal Shangri-la on every visit.
