This campaign tells you absolutely nothing concrete about these hotels/resorts. Everything is just too vague or abstract. Nice executions though.

I love dolphin. This one works for me.

I personally dont agree with atb2005 cos I think this is a purely branding campaign and it just needs to make ppl feeling good, then it's already enough. As Shangri-la is a well-known hotel brand in Asia. I think it's not necessary to show their hotel rooms, lobby decoration, etc.

It is too abstract and mushy for me. Do I want a hotel to "embrace" me? I don't expect that, in fact, I don't like the confidentiality here... bad insight, if I belong to the target group.

The benefit of the product / service is exaggerated and out of context, but the message is transmitted, but why she is wearing a dress?

Guest's picture

Hmmmm.... Sorry, but it doesn't necessarily make me feel great about the brand. Besides using asian talent, the complete idea of Shangri-La (the place) is completely lost. Nice try though.

Reedited: This is better than wolf and swan. Infact much better. Nice work compare to other related works (wolfs, swan)

Don't follow the herd - be yourself!

But it's a copy of what another agency have proposed during the competition.

this is beautiful, way better than the other two.
Faultless photography (no photo credit? weird) and re-touching, thoughtful execution.

At least your not being eaten in your sleep by wolves, or a menacing giant swan.!

This brings the best visual impact to me ! Harmony, not too over like the other two.
