Shangri-La’s Hambantota Resort & Spa To Open On 1 June

Stunning resort will be the first Shangri-La in Sri Lanka, the “Pearl of the Indian Ocean”

 

Opening on Sri Lanka’s stunning southern coastline on 1 June 2016, Shangri-La’s Hambantota Resort & Spa will offer unrivalled amenities and experiential activities and set a new standard for hospitality in the “Pearl of the Indian Ocean.” Spanning 145 acres, the 300-room beachfront resort will boast lush tropical gardens, an 18-hole golf course, an artisan village and a wide array of innovative dining, event and entertainment options.

“Sri Lanka is one of the fastest-growing destinations in the Indian Ocean and a beautiful country with incredible natural attractions, wonderful people and more than 2,000 years of culture. We are delighted to be opening the first international luxury resort in Hambantota and look forward to bringing Shangri-La’s hallmark hospitality from the heart to this exciting destination,” said Shangri-La President and CEO Greg Dogan.

Sri Lanka is one of the best places to see wildlife in Asia, and Hambantota is located near several national wildlife parks that are home to an array of animals, including wild elephants, the Sri Lankan leopard and thousands of rare and exotic birds. Guests arriving to Colombo International Airport can enjoy Shangri-La’s private luxury coach transfer, the first of its kind in Sri Lanka. Seating up to 25 people, resort guests will enjoy the five-star service and facilities for which the hotel group is renowned, with refreshments, cold towels and snacks served during the drive along the scenic coastal route.

In addition to Shangri-La’s luxury coach transfer, Fly Dubai and Abu Dhabi-based Rotana Jet, fly direct to Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport, which is 35 kilometres from the resort. Local-based Cinnamon Air and Sri Lankan Airlines also run regular domestic flights from Colombo.
