About Shangri-La Country Hotel

The word Shangri-La translates into Place of Eternal Youth. The Shangri-La Country Hotel is a secluded hideaway of great beauty, and a sanctuary of peace and tranquillity nestled against the verdant backdrop of the Waterberg, overlooking the tropical Nile Valley. We offer the elegance and charm of yesteryear in a non-commercial atmosphere, with true home-away-from-home pampering.

Accommodation is provided in 49 en-suite, individually decorated rooms furnished with antique masterpieces echoing the African Colonial charm that is created by the main complex. Our luxury rooms and rondavels are surrounded by the lush tropical gardens, and all are within walking distance of the romantic chapel, the sparkling swimming pool, fully-equipped conference centres, and other hotel facilities.

The Presidential Suite, with its spacious main bedroom filled with antique masterpieces, also features a private courtyard surrounded by towering trees and a private dining room with mini bar. Guests also have the option of twin, double, or king-size beds, all with 100% pure cotton percale linen. For a family holiday, we offer four Family Units that can accommodate up to four people.

The Shangri-La Country Hotel restaurant offers exquisite cuisine. You will not only indulge in the marvels of our menu, but also feast your eyes on the creative food styling.

Spa: Located at Shangri-La’s iconic sparkling pool, the new Spa forms part of the relaxation area. The Spa offers two calm treatment rooms – one customized for couples. Guests can expect a variety of massages and skin and body care treatments.

Wedding Venues: If getting married in the countryside has always been on your wish list, consider what we have on offer. Any one of our indoor or outdoor venues can become a fairytale setting to ensure you remember your special celebration for years to come.

Conference Venues: Shangri-La Hotel offers a peaceful country venue for conferences, business indabas, team-building events and workshops. Conference organisers can opt for day conference- and overnight packages.

Family friendly: From a unique labyrinth and 9-hole putt-putt course, to stargazing in the Amphitheater and playing tennis, snooker, darts or table tennis, we have a range of activities to keep the kids entertained during their stay with us.

                  A place close to my heart! Perfectly isolated, a place where you can be and just kick up your feet. The lush green gardens and surroundings are absolutely magical! #fairy-tale_destinations!

                  Loved the restaurant and gardens. The breakfast was incredible and suppers were delicious. Very relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff. The room decor felt a bit dated and some of the bathroom fixtures weren't great (cheap toilet seat, toilet roll holder etc.) but everything was clean and the stay was enjoyable.
