Shangri-La Resort, located at the tip of Monkey Island on northeastern Oklahoma’s Grand Lake O’ The Cherokees, is the ultimate lakeside romantic getaway no matter what time of year.

The resort, named Oklahoma’s “Outstanding Lodging” by the Oklahoma Travel and Industry Association, features 119 guest rooms, a medical spa, indoor and outdoor pools, steam room & sauna facilities, a fitness center, 9,000 square feet of meeting space, romantic wedding venues, and 27 breathtaking holes of championship golf in addition to seasonal boat and personal watercraft rentals, yacht charters, and parasailing. 

Shangri-La’s Valentine’s Day Weekend Getaway Special is the ultimate “mix-and-match” romantic package. With special standard room rates of $129 (two nights for only $199) including breakfast for two, the resort offers a variety of other romantic values that can be easily added to the getaway package at your option. Add half a dozen chocolate covered strawberries and Champagne/Prosecco for only $48. 

The optional addition of Sweetheart Dinner offerings February 14, 15, and 16 is also your choice. Enjoy a romantic dinner for two at the resort’s opulent Summit Restaurant featuring a four-course dinner with your choice of entrée – Papperdelle with Prawns, Surf & Turf, or Pecan Smoked Duck La Cerise for $120 per couple including dessert and a gift from the Chef. Add a bottle of wine for a total of $175 per couple.

If you prefer a more casual atmosphere, add dinner for two at Doc’s Bar & Grill with a more traditional four-course offering with Chicken Piccata, Hawaiian Sea Bass, or Beef Wellington entrée choices for $60 per couple. Add a bottle of wine for an additional $20. 

For the ultimate couple’s experience, add a relaxing day at The Spa at Shangri-La. Choose a 60-minute massage with a Chocolate Truffle Body Wrap or Coconut Sugar Body Rub for only $165. Or, for the ultimate experience, select a 1-hour Couple’s Massage with customer aromatherapy and hot towel treatment for $200.  All package prices exclude service charge, tax and gratuity. 

If the weather is nice, you may want to opt for a day on Shangri-La’s Top Five Championship Golf Course featuring undulating greens, sparkling white sand bunkers and a magnificent lakeside setting. The resort was named “Oklahoma’s #1 Golf Destination” by Midwest Golfing Magazine.

 Spend a little time in the complimentary fitness center or enjoy a beautiful walk on Monkey Island’s exclusive pedestrian trail along the resort property. Relax in the hot tub or indoor pool. Watch the unmatched Grand Lake sunrises and sunsets – or just relax in your room with available room service. There are multiple offerings to make any visit to Shangri-La a memorable escape from reality.

Surrounded by Grand Lake O’ The Cherokees’ 45,000 surface acres of glistening water, Shangri-La Resort is the ultimate getaway any time of the year. For conventions, conferences, weddings, retreats, honeymoons, or family vacations, it has become the #1 resort destination in Oklahoma.
