About the property

Your private Villa on the Water - fully operable after hurricanes

Shangri La the perfect luxury hideaway on the water, suited for everybody who appreciates modern sophistication: professional crew, excellent service and food, a new, modern yacht: This stylish new Lagoon 52Flybridge will turn your vacation into a once in a lifetime experience!

Start your morning in a romantic secluded bay, dive in and snorkel the remarkable underwater world, have an exhilarating day sail, lay back and relax and enjoy your first class dinner together with a breathtaking sunset.

Guests are welcome to enjoy, relax and unwind on the spacious yacht, roomy enough to find privacy on the seating area of the foredecks, the large trampolines, the wide and open flybridge, but also for bigger groups to come together for al fresco dining in the wide and shady cockpit.

Shangri La accommodates maximum 8 guests in 4 guest cabins: one deluxe cabin, with queen-size bed, big lockers, ensuite head and shower and a separate entrance from the cockpit, two spacious premium cabins with queen-size beds and ensuite bathroom, and one cabin with single sized bunk beds and ensuite bathroom. Fixed hull windows allow natural lighting in every cabin together with wide deck hatches, which also provide excellent ventilation. In addition all cabins have fans and private A/C controls.

The modern and elegant salon offers wide, panoramic windows allowing natural light to flood through, an elegant lounge area with TV and music system as well as the well-equipped galley.

One of the most popular spots on Shangri La is the flybridge. Not only the helm station is located there but also a canvas topped lounge and sunbathing area. Here the famous Shangri La Sundownercocktail is served.

For exhilarating action besides sailing, there is a wide assortment of toys including Stand up paddleboards, floats, the Shangri La Pool Bar, and snorkel and fishing gear.

We sail the Virgin Islands and start our trips in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands or in Tortola - BVIs.

Shangri La was NOT destroyed in the hurricanes Irma and Maria and is fully operable. After the hurricanes we started immediatly working and had a lot of sucessful charters and clients also after the hurricanes.

Shangri La thinks Green – Energy and water is a nature´s gift!!!

Shangri La uses big photovoltaic solar panels to satisfy the energetic needs of everyday utilities like light, battery chargers, fridge and freezer – that helps saving generator hours.

We encourage our guests to open the hatches during the night, which allows the lovely cold sea breeze to ventilate the rooms instead of turning on the A/C.

Shangri La produces its own drinkable water with desalination of seawater and a special filtration and purifying system, refillable containers are used to avoid plastic containers and bottles. In addition no plastic cups or plates are used on Shangri La to reduce unnecessary rubbish.

The eco-dishwasher on board uses less water than others, and also biodegradable cleaning products are used on board.

Healthy and Wealthy Slow Food

The food on Shangri La is made and designed with great awareness.. fresh, organic and high quality food is served to give our bodies and minds the perfect nutrition and balance it needs.

We serve fresh vegetables, fruits, grains and salad with every meal, Vegetarians are welcome!

SHANGRI LA truly delivers the experience consistent with her name, a beautiful place where life approaches perfection!

Beyond amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a week aboard Shangri La. Dani und Bernd, you two are fantastic!!! The trip was everything we could imagined and more. Travelling to many islands allowed us to enjoy so many more things than staying at a hotel could have. And I must say, even after Hurricane Irma and Maria the islands are unbelievable beautiful and Bernd (Captain) is very knowledgable so he can take you to the best places.

The boat ist very clean and the meals are absolutely amazing. Dani (Chef) does not leave any desires open when it comes to meals. We looked forward to each meal time. They looked amazing and were very tasty.

These are the key words that we associate with our time with you:

- Positive

- Caring

- Feels like home

- Perfection

- 5 Star meals

- Highly professional

We truly enjoyed that adventure. This should be on everyone's bucketlist!

We really loved to sail with you!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for that wonderful trip. We enjoyed each minute but especially the yoga in the morning, our card games at night, wakeboarding and subwinging, the Scooter-Tour in Anegada, all the white beaches and lonely bays, the snorkeling, the Austrian Glühwein and “All you can eat – Kaiserschmarrn”, the best Gin&Tonics and Painkillers, the fabulous and amazing food and last but not least our X-mas karaoke. Thank you for everything! We really loved to sail with you!

Amazing Charter and Family Friendly

  • 5 of 5

We decided to try something new in the BVI's and chartered Shangri La for a week. Our party was three adults and one four year old. From the minute we joined Shangri La to the time we said farewell we had an excellent time. Dani's meals were excellent and she provided a great variety of food each day - the only problem was it was more food than we could eat. Dani's morning yoga was a hit with us all including the four year old. Before we went on this trip we were very uncertain about comfort and safety while on board, and I am happy to say that the boat is comfortable in every way and the crew make you feel safe at all times. We enjoyed Bernd's cocktails and several really good wines and champagne were available throughout our stay. Overall this was one of the most fun and adventurous vacations we have taken and would highly recommend that others join them as well as it is all first class all the way!

A Week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The yacht is spacious, impeccably maintained and luxurious, and the food is excellent, but best part of a Shangri La vacation is that the captain and crew have only one goal, to make this the best vacation you’ve ever had.

We spent a week on Shangri La in June of 2017 and couldn’t have been happier. Every day was a new adventure planned just for us. We could request a location or take the advice of Daniela and Bernard and enjoy the surprise. We went to remote beaches and had bonfire picnics, were led on snorkeling expeditions at some of the quieter locations and in general treated like royalty.

This was the 5th time my wife and I had been to the BVIs and it was by far the best trip we’ve ever had. We had 3 generations on board and from the oldest to the youngest everyone agreed that it was our best vacation ever. Thanks so much. Looking forward to our next trip.

There is no better vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a fabulous trip. It is the best way to explore the Virgin Islands and this boat is better than a 5 star hotel. It is super clean, the crew is very ambitious and pampered us all the time, the food is excellent, the drinks are awsome.. the best vacation we ever had! For sure we will come again!!!

Fantastic vacation

  • 5 of 5

Diving into the water just before breakfast and swimming to the beach, setting the first footprints in the sand, collecting shells, reading, just being lazy, amazing snorkelspots.. this vacation was simply fantastic! The crew took care about us in every moment, the food is amazing, looks like a 5 star menu, the captain knows everything about the BVIs and is very ambitious and nice, and the pretty clean boat is even better than a 5 star resort!

Great Service and amazing hospitality...
