SHANGRI LA GUESTS COMMENTS
Our experience exceeded our greatest expectations! Shangri La is an impressive sailing vessel. With 10 people aboard (7 in our family and 3 crew), were very comfortable and never felt crowded. Daniela and Bernd were the quenticential hosts whose charm and hospitality were unparalleled.
From the initial email communication, to the personal calls a week before the charter, our initial meeting, the sailing experiences, the delectable dining experiences, the options for daily sailing and adventures, to the sad farewell, we all had a exceptional experience. We feel as though Daniela and Bernd are now part of our family!
The dining experiences——how does one say superb 5 Star cuisine three times daily for seven days? We ate at several nice restaurants on pre trip St John and post trip St Thomas, but found Daniela’s meals exceeding all of those! Bernd made sure no cup was empty with wonderful new Caribbean concoctions, as well as an good wine selection. The music theme pairings with themes of the meal only added to the cuisine excellence.
We additionally were treated with an another host in Morgan, a very smart and personable young lady from Maryland. Morgan was a substitute for their regular assistant who had gone back to Germany. Morgan complemented Daniela and Bernd seamlessly. They all bent over backwards for our 4 and 5 year old grandchildren (of course, as well as us)!
If you were to ask Cecile and me to recommend a perfect vacation/holiday, we would answer “spend a week with Bernd and Daniela aboard Shangri La.” We hate to be too effusive in our praise, for fear you will publicize our comments, which will make it more difficult to rebook Shangri La in the future.
Cecile and Jim

We cannot thank you enough for the amazing time we had have on your cat, Shangri La. What good care you have all taken care of us. Great sailing, food for a King and sights to behold. I can´t believe how beautiful it is in the BVI. White sand and turquoise water. You made our time so relaxing! We didn´t have to raise a finger to do anything. You did it all! How blessed we are to have found you. We had a fantastic time and can’t wait to come back. Thank you so much and god bless you…Joey, Andrea, Katelyn, Dayton and Nicholas
Wedding on Shangri La – May 2018
Thanks for the sailing experience of a lifetime. You didn´t miss a beat when we informed you that we would also through a wedding into our charter plans. (Only 2 weeks notice) Within 24 hours of boarding the Shangri La, Brad and Victoria were married on Trunk Bay. You even managed to successfully tender the wedding cake aboard in the rain and waves.
The remainder of our week included so many wonderful memories: sailing, swimming, yoga, snorkeling, sub-winging, paddle-boarding, food – lots of delicious gourmet meals, nightly tarpon shows under the blue lights, star and planet gazing, Norman Islands Caves, The Bath, Oil Nut Bay, Karaoke, Bananagrams, drinks, and more drinks from our extraordinary bartenders…
The Shangri La is an exquisite Sailboat. The attention to cleanliness and detail is much appreciated.
Thanks for making this a special trip.. we will be back!!!
Brad, Victoria, Eric, Tara, Zach, David and Edie
April 2018 – 60th birthday celabrations
What an amazing 60th birthday celebration! The food was delicious, the service was first rate and the accommodation was the best. Everything was planned to perfection and you made it seem effortless. And, oh how can you throw a party! Thank you so much for showing us your piece of paradise that is the BVI and we can´t wait to come back again! We loved the yoga, the snorkeling, the meals (THE MEALS!), the chill time and the entertainment (best music ever!)
Was like summer camp for adults 🙂 Elise and Tim
Thank you for a totally awesome week in the Caribbean Sea! Sweet friends- fantastic new friends – incredible snorkeling and sailing, excellent music – and the most exceptional experience was Daniela´s delicious food. Whom! 3 meals a day, beautifully presented and effortlessly served with a sweet smile. We totally enjoyed our 60th birthday celebration. Thank you all for a job well done. You have only our best wishes, thoughts and prayers…xoxo William and Donna
April 2018 – A bucket list trip
Huge thanks for the past week that we spent sailing around the beautiful islands of the BVI. This was a bucket list trip for me and my family. We made some amazing memories we will have forever. And if we can´t remember we will always have our video. Tony- we appreciated your skills and abilities in sailing and getting us everywhere. And for answering all my questions as we sailed. We loved the sailing portion of the trip – it is magical when the sails are out and the boat flies. Kate – you are an amazing and wonderful chef. Great food! Can´t believe how you just worked and worked and made such tasty and beautifully prepared food. Everyone had their favorites: steak, quesadillas, crepe, the deserts and on and on. The food was a highlight. Lena- you welcomed us back to the boat with a greeting and smile each time. You were very kind and helped extremely to make this a trip of a lifetime. Loved how you recognized the bucket list family music.
Highlights: Anegada, Baths, Sandy Spit, scuba diving, Rhone, Salt Island, Peter Island, subwing, tubing, Indians, Caves, Water Melon Bay, Roadtown
Thanks Chris and Missy
March 2019 – . Celebrating a 50th anniversary and a 10th birthday for a whole week
Thank you for such a wonderful week. The snorkeling was fun, beautiful clear waters. We loved the relaxing sails and the swim-up beach bars. Great to see everything rebuilt so quickly. A wonderful time with our family. Thank you to our fantastic crew: Lena, for keeping us organized, everything running and fantastic yoga to get us started each day. Kate, for preparing so many wonderful meals, we could not pick a favorites. Capt. Tony for always knowing the perfect place to be on the perfect day, with great stories and DJ knowledge. You have deepest thanks for a perfect trip with our family that we will remember always.
Thank you for leaving us in the warm hands of Tony, Kate and Lena. We cannot imagine a better fit for our family of 8: “almost 10” to 72. Celebrating our 50th anniversary for a whole week was beyond wonderful. Thank you
Spring Break – March 2018
Many thanks for all the memories you helped us create! We had such a terrific vacation aboard your beautiful Shangri La! The islands alone are magical, but when combined with such a fabulous crew…
We were spoiled by Kate’s culinary skills and have some photos as proof. And Captain Tony managed to sail us here and there and everywhere – too many to name – Anegada, the Baths, the Indians among my favorites – and don’t forget the Caves, the jokes, the music playlists, Farkle games, sub-winging, snorkeling, paddle-boarding! Lena’s delightful and her attention to every detail made such a difference. She has such a precious personality – so pleasant! Our thanks to all of you!!! Blessings.
Refueled with sun and new impressions unfortunately this beautiful journey is coming to an end. Great food, the perfect crew/hosts, unbeatable sophistication- it is difficult for us to go back home. Thank you very much for this wonderful time and these great experience.

February 2018 We love to sail! Do you?
We love to sail! Do you? Sailing BVI aboard the LUXURY catamaran Shangri La. Our Captain, Cook and crew were AMAZING!! Such a stress free vacay aboard Shangri La as the crew catered to our every needs—they SPOILED us!! Thank you so much Bernd, Captain, Manager and Perfectionist and Daniela Chef, Master Yoga Instructor and an all arround “LOVELY” person inside and out! Thank you for such a wonderful and enjoyable experience! It surpassed all our expectations of a LUXURY sailing experience! I feel so blessed to have found your vessel. You are the perfect boat & crew. It’s very clear why Shangri La won 2nd best boat at the show—an award you should be very proud of! You and the Captain make a great team ?
The Land Of Oz Crew (Kansas is often referred to this from the famous movie The Wizard Of Oz): Dave, Debbie, Tom, Cindy, Margie, Ron, Rich & Nancy ??
PS: We couldn’t wait to see what you were cooking for dinner. It was so fun looking forward to your lovely & delicious meals!
We had 12 wonderful days aboard Shangri La in the BVIs. Dani and Lena took care of wonderful culinary highlights each day that we had to “work off” in the morning with yoga. Bernd spoiled us with secluded beaches and coves. It was a fantastic island hopping – with snorkeling, bathing, fun in the water, on board or at the beach. Bernd made every day special. His local knowledge and his sailing skills are enormous. From the first moment on we felt so comfortable. Dani & Bernd are a perfect team that pampers their guests very personal and professional from morning to evening with Kaiserschmarren “all you can eat” accompanied with Viennese Waltz music, or barbecue night, great steaks by Bernd prepared on the Weber Grill with Caribbean sounds under the beautiful starry sky. Yes, here comes everybody the mood for a wild dance party with great music. It has been great fun with you, keep doing this and again a very warm thank you for the wonderful time with you.
Dear Shangri La,
our week on board was ethereal! You met all our expectations of a family vacation, and those we did not know were possible. Indeed Shangri La became our home and we will always remember it this way. We now depart refreshed, relaxed and renewed.. our memories will sustain us until we meet again. Auf Wiedersehen vielen Dank-thank you Chris, Renee, Erin, Robert and Keenan
Thank you for the wonderful time aboard Shangri La. It was so relaxing, we loved the sea, sailing and the sun! The food was amazing! We had the best parties: Piratparty, Karaoke Night, Beach Party and Soggy Dollar! Iris, Volker, Daniel, Nicole, Rainer, Meggy, Julia, Katja
Happy New Year!
I wanted to thank you for your help with our BVI trip. We had an incredible time. The catamaran, Shangri La, was perfect. Well-appointed with great rooms and for such a small space, we never felt like we were on top of each other. The crew was fabulous. Bernd (the captain) was always ready with ideas of where to go—we visited the Baths on Virgin Gorda, snorkeled at a few famous and wonderful spots, including the Indians. He set up an impromptu sundowner on a beach one night, made cocktails and set up a limbo game with a tree branch. Super fun.He was always making fun cocktails and the boat had tons of fun activities using the dingy—there was tubing and wake boarding and something called a sub-wing which we’d never heard of. The kids tried it all (as did most of the adults.) Then, during the sails, we rested and read and napped. A perfect combination of down time and activities. The food was also incredible—fresh tuna steaks, rib eye, sashimi, a stuffed pork tenderloin and Daniela (the chef) was great about accommodating the kids’ more limited palates. If you have clients interested in the BVIs (or a catamaran in that region), I would strongly recommend Shangri La. I hope you’ll pass on our thanks to the boat company, too.
All in all, it was a perfect trip. Chris ranks it top 2 with Africa and I think I agree. We look forward to going back!
Thank you so much for the wonderful time on Shangri La. It was another great trip- especially Anegada. Thank you for taking care of little David and thank you for the superb food- it deserves *****.
Ha ha! Great picture. Thanks again for everything. You are both good people. We appreciate all you have done to make our much needed holiday very special and memorable. We had a great time and feel we made two new friends.

For anyone considering a Shangri La vacation, I’d tell you that the yacht is spacious, impeccably maintained and luxurious, and the food is excellent, but best part of a Shangri La vacation is that the captain and crew have only one goal, to make this the best vacation you’ve ever had.
We spent a week on Shangri La in June of 2017 and couldn’t have been happier. Every day was a new adventure planned just for us. We could request a location or take the advice of Daniela and Bernard and enjoy the surprise. We went to remote beaches and had bonfire picnics, were led on snorkeling expeditions at some of the quieter locations and in general treated like royalty. This was the 5th time my wife and I had been to the BVIs and it was by far the best trip we’ve ever had. We had 3 generations on board and from the oldest to the youngest everyone agreed that it was our best vacation ever. Thanks so much. Looking forward to our next trip.

The Shangri La is first class in every way! With the brand new bigger boat and new toys, there is endless fun to be had! Norm can not wait to Sub-Wing again! Safe travels across the Atlantic! Can not wait to our next adventure!
Lindy What can we say, we have now chartered with this crew twice in less than 5 months and we will be joining them again in 5 more. The Shangri La is first class in every way!

Lindy & Norm
We sailed to many lovely islands with stunning beaches, many of them uninhabited so that we had the beach, island, and sea to ourselves. On one deserted island Bernd and Daniela arranged a beach barbque using drift wood for the fire and we watched the sun set while Bernd cooked great steaks above the glowing fire embers to the sound of music provided by a large music center, brought ashore for our entertainment by our hosts. We enjoyed our food as it got dark on a beautiful warm night with nothing above us but the stars and the waxing half moon.
We took care to return the beach to its original pristine condition, before we retired on board Shangri La for a good nights sleep at one of the many safe and tranquil anchorages that Bernd knows so well.
All in all a very pleasant and memorable holiday.
