Shangri La is the perfect luxury hideaway on the water, suited for everybody who appreciates modern sophistication while on vacation. The crew/owners have been chartering for over 4 years and recently upgraded to this 2016 Lagoon 52 with flybridge.
With the same professional crew, same excellent service and food, same concept, but on a bigger, state-of-the-art yacht, available for charter in the Virgin Islands.
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 including one deluxe cabin with queen-size bed, big lockers, en-suite bathroom with shower and a separate entrance from the cockpit, two spacious premium cabins with queen-size beds and en-suite bathroom, and one cabin with single sized bunk beds and en-suite 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 air conditioning controls. The modern and elegant salon offers wide, panoramic windows allowing natural light to flood throughout, 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 sundowner cocktail 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.
