Shangri-La in Sri Lanka


One of the sweet spots overlooking the Indian Ocean’s turquoise waters is found at Shangri-La’s Hambantota Resort & Spa in southern Sri Lanka.

Located in the southern coastal city of Chithragala along the ancient Spice Route, the new 300-room five-star resort is a throwback to a bygone style of tropical luxury – from colourful peacocks that roam its lush grounds to the indulgent interiors bedecked in rattan furnishings, polished wooden floors and exotic emerald hues. Even its rain showers and stone-clad bathtubs allude to subdued luxury.

Guests can also indulge at CHI, The Spa where Ayurvedic treatments tantalise the senses, or tee off at the 18-hole LA Golf & Country Club or arrive in style at its private helipad.
