Guestbook comments from the manager

Looking at the pictures again after being back in Colorado really stirs great memories. It was just my husband and myself and we wanted peace and solitude. We didn't spend much time away from the home, we ignored almost every tourist attraction as we were in paradise and never wanted to leave. The linens were very nice, we loved the outdoor shower and bath, and the landscaping... We can't say enough about the landscaping. We enjoyed all the details including the small shells in the walking paths and the orchids wrapping our linens on arrival. We loved the nightly rains and all the humidity. My skin never felt so nice. We loved the outdoor lighting at night and enjoyed watching the palm fronds wave in the breezes. We also loved the orchids growing on the trees. The flowers were amazing.



The pond was delightful for swimming and we grew to love the fish and the geckos. It was slightly inconvenient that our Verizon cell service didn't work at the home and yet, what a gift! By the time we left, we could care less that we had no cell service! It took Shangri-la to remind us that constant connection isn't THAT necessary and that we are humans and do not need our dog leashes (cell phones) on every adventure. Sometimes it is best to run free!

PERFECT GETAWAY!

  • 5 out of 5
ShangriLa is awesome. It very much reminded me of Bali with the outdoor style living spaces. How wonderful to have your very own WARM lagoon to swim in each day. It was so relaxing we didn't want to leave. I felt like I was on a retreat. It is very secluded and quiet and beautiful. My kids were in heaven too! We had everything we needed and the property manager was very welcoming and helpful with lots of local knowledge. I plan on returning to ShangriLa for sure and have been recommending it to all of my family and friends. YOU SHOULD GO!

Reviewer Comments:
Shangri'la is sooooo gorgeous. To wake up in the morning and find yourself surrounded by lush green tropical trees and have your own private brackish water pool filled with kois, talapia, and also yellow tangs, uhus, and humuhumu's is nothing short of amazing. And have all the amenities too? Just awesome. We also enjoyed Champagne Cove, which was only a short walk away. My toddler definitely enjoyed herself as well, and loved swimming with the fishes, and making friends with those cute Big Island geckos. I'm looking forward to my return back to Shangri'la.

Christmas in Shangri-La

  • 5 out of 5
This unique property met and exceeded our expectations. We loved swimming in the warm, fish filled water. The outdoor master bath was amazing, and I loved the round house and screened in kitchen.
The location was perfect for an afternoon trip to the volcano. We also enjoyed shopping and people watching in nearby Pahoa.

A-MAAAAZING!!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Unbelievably unique experience! Shangri-La is an exotic, yet quaint atmosphere that gives one the feel that they are staying in the middle of a rain forest under beautiful trees, surrounded by the deepest colored flowers, exotic birds and amazing fish in your very OWN pond! Floating through this property is the way I spent every morning well after walking only half a block to watch the sunrise over the ocean! After swimming a few laps, I laid on a raft and enjoyed the natural beauty that this property offers. Complete privacy, on top of everything else, made this stay my favorite vacation yet! While it was hard to leave this property, I found time to venture Downtown and hang with the locals on a Friday night where live music played, kids and adults of all ages dance barefoot and delicious restaurants lined the main street. This area is also known for its snorkeling as you swim with some of the friendliest massive turtles you'll ever see. Sunday I'd suggest driving to the jungle where you spend a morning of worship expressing yourself with dance and music. After a truly magnificent spiritual few hours, you walk thru this magnificent property to be served a fresh, organic lunch! After all these adventures, the best part is coming back to the quiet, secluded property to play some music, drink wine & frolic through the beautiful nature that Shangri-La offers. A once-in-a-lifetime experience, I give this stay, hands down, 5 stars!!

Paradise Found

  • 5 out of 5
Friends recently asked me about my stay at Shangri La on the big island of Hawaii celebrating my 66th birthday this past July 4. I suggested we look at the web site together and I would describe my experience as we watched the video and viewed the photos. Let me first say that all the images shown are totally accurate and do an excellent job of showing what Shangri La is like. I went with my girlfriend, my son and his fiancee and another couple with whom I have been friends for many years. Our stay surpassed our hopes beyond measure. It was like a Garden of Eden in so many ways, if I was to imagine what that could be like....Totally a world of our own, very private and with a quality of understated luxury.. Everything we could have wanted was at our disposal on the property. The on site manager was very helpful with suggestions remained invisible unless we sought her out. She made sure there was fresh fruit each morning for smoothies with our espresso. I also enjoyed preparing a few meals. Imagine a perfect setting with a warm tropical sunset dinner of fresh seafood and local orgainic ingredients. It was more then I could have hoped for to share this memorable birthday with loved ones and close friends. I can't recommend Shangri La in any higher praise. It was a very special experience we will all remember with joy for the rest of our days. I hope to return again next year if it is available when I plan my next adventure.

Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 out of 5
I had seen the photos, and read the descriptions, but I was still not prepared for the wonder of this compound. We live in the deserts of New Mexico, and I felt like I was literally dropped into a tropical paradise. The compound was clean, well stocked, spacious, quiet, private, and of course a lush delight to the senses. My favorite treats were the tidal pool with its myriad of fish, the island bedroom, and the outdoor shower and dining area. I can't wait to return!!
