Circle of Luxury

Redefining Luxury

Shangri-La The Marina, Cairns is redefining luxury. Gone are the days when it was as simple as five-star service and is now about personalisation, innovation and sustainability.

It's slowing down to breathe, taking the time to feel the sun on your face, escaping the crowds, meeting the destination's curators and custodians, and departing with knowledge.

It's about rising early to be silent, feasting on local ingredients, changing plans on a whim, and spending time with those that matter most.

At Shangri-La The Marina, Cairns we promise bespoke experiences created for those seeking to connect with a perfect and pristine paradise.

The Beginning

The Beginning

Shangri-La The Marina, Cairns Circle of Luxury experiences are more than a holiday and every one will be managed as a special occasion.

Our Director of Sales Melanie DeCourcy will lead the hotel team to craft a customised escape that makes every moment memorable.

This will start by consulting with the guest to put plans in place – a conversation to discover the details that make a difference – and liaising with colleagues across the hotel.

Melanie will manage all the reservations, both big and small, and suggest thoughtful enhancements. Our tailored experiences can’t be captured in a brochure, so we have Melanie to bring them to life.

For more information, please call (617) 4052 7618 or email melanie.decourcy@shangri-la.com.
