In a philanthropic effort, Shangri-La launches special summer experiences to support Make-A-Wish International

These special experiences are available across the Middle East, Europe, India, The Indian Ocean, and Canada

June 28, 2022: Following Shangri-La’s recent announcement of their debut partnership with Make-A-Wish International, select hotels across the Middle East, Europe, India, the Indian Ocean, and Canada are launching dedicated summer experiences to support the foundation. Specially created restaurant experiences and ‘Make-A-Wish Come True’ stays will run until mid-October 2022. With each booking, Shangri-La will donate a percentage of the proceeds to help Make-A-Wish International grant wishes around the world for every eligible child with critical illnesses.

Shangri-La’s ‘Make-A-Wish Come True’ stay offers a minimum one night stay for two guests, including breakfast and a special local treat inspired by each hotel’s destination. Taking inspiration from the charity’s iconic star symbol, guests who book the ‘Make-A-Wish Come True’ stay in London will enjoy locally-inspired amenities such as delectable star cakes, made using chocolate from London’s Borough Market at Shangri-La The Shard, London. 

An authentic Baklava Butler dedicated experience will be offered at Shangri-La Bosphorus, Istanbul; Shangri-La Toronto will offer guests honey infused treats made using the hotel’s very own beehive; and a sweet and savoury ‘Local Love’ delicacy from Shangri-La Bengaluru in India, made using local ingredients, will be offered amongst other locally inspired signature amenities.
