  1. A mini oasis in the heart of the city.  The only hotel to have a large free-form pool, an adjacent kiddie pool with waterslide, a fish pond and a gazebo surrounded by lush garden landscape. For contemplative walks, stroll along the garden path and rest at a wooden bench facing the pond, or take shade under the gazebo outside the lobby lounge, facing the pond.
  2. CHI, The Spa is the largest and most spacious of its kind in Metro Manila, with 10 treatment suites, a yoga room and mini library. It has a separate entrance facing St. Francis Shangri-La Place.
  3. Shopaholics will find convenience in crossing the link bridge from the hotel to Shangri-La Plaza mall, or to walk across the main lobby to get to SM Megamall. Alternatively, more bargain finds may be found 5-10 minutes away (by car) at nearby Tiendesitas, City Golf Plaza, Metro Walk or Greenhills.
  4. A number of art enclaves may be accessed nearby. Noteworth are: Blanc Art Gallery at 359 Shaw Blvd. (5 min. by car) and  Cubao X, near Araneta Center, Quezon City, where one finds eclectic art, edgy fashion and cool cafés and bars.
  5. For a fast and safe way to get from Ortigas to Makati, take the MRT connected at  the 5th floor of Shangri-La Plaza mall. You’ll get there in just minutes with no traffic, and it only costs Php12/one way.
