About Shangri La Xian
Taking prime position in Xian’s well-heeled shopping district, the Shangri-La, is a contemporary haven. It’s a cosmopolitan retreat after days exploring the Terracotta Warriors, an ancient wonder within easy reach.
Inside feels grand from the ornate glass chandeliers to the sweeping staircase. Rooms set an elegant scene with dark wood, subtle patterned fabric and marble bathrooms. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer views over Xian, especially impressive twinkling at night. Some rooms look out to the manicured gardens.
When you’re ready to unwind, relax by the 25-metre heated swimming pool, eye level with the city skyline. Or head to the pampering spa for treatments using Chinese gemstones.
Dine in the market-style Yi café whipping up everything from seafood feasts to Japanese bento. Tuck into traditional dim sum and freshly pulled noodles at the Cantonese restaurant or try herby Thai soups in the Siam Garden. You may never feel the need to leave.
