Can you believe Shangri-La KL is now 30 years old or will be on 20 April 2015 the exact date?
To celebrate, Shangri-La KL feted long serving staff who have worked for 10, 15, 20, 25 and of course 30 years.
The Queen of them all is Dato Rosemarie Wee the Regional Director of Public Relations who joined Shangri-La a year before the hotel opened! Her office was across the road at MUI Plaza! How time flies!
Dato Rosemarie Wee is the record holder as she has officially been with Shangri-La for 31 years, longer than anyone else!
Congratulations Dato Rosemarie Wee! What a sterling example you have set for the staff!

The Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur is celebrating its 30th Anniversary on April 20, 2015. In conjunction with the 30th Anniversary, the hotel honored 36 staff members who have served the hotel for the past 30 years in a gala dinner and long-service staff awards presentation on April 2, 2015.
Mr Manfred Weber, General Manager of the Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur rewarded 107 employees who have served 30 years, 25 years, 20 years, 15 years and 10 years respectively during the ceremony.
A grand dinner plus the awards presentation by Mr Weber and performances by the staff made the evening a memorable one for the long-service staff. Guest relations officers were dressed in uniform based on the kebaya designed 30 years ago to re-create the classic Shang moments.
In celebration of the anniversary, the hotel offers various promotions throughout April.
· French restaurant Lafite will serve its 30th Anniversary menu. The menu is inspired by the first menu served by its first chef 30 years ago.
· On April 20, diners will enjoy a 30% anniversary food discount in all restaurants in the Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.
· Anniversary cocktail ‘Paradise’ will be served at the Lobby Lounge and Arthur’s Bar & Grill.
