Shangri-La’s debut in Sri Lanka was definitely worth the wait! The jaw-dropping property is undoubtedly one of the finest properties on the island. Set across an impressive 53 acres, the stunning Shangri- La’s Hambantota Golf Resort and Spa is an inculcation of class, luxury and extraordinary service – elements synonymous with the Shangri-La brand. Perched on a long stretch of white-washed sand, the hotel boasts of a plethora of services and amenities including its beautifully-designed Rodney Wright 18-hole course, an on-site artisan centre and 7 eatery options. While the deluxe and premier rooms are well appointed and beautifully done, our personal favourite was the Premier Ocean Suite and well, here’s why!
Soak yourself in 1,000 sq ft of luxury and extravagance with the spacious Premier Ocean Suite. While private hideaways guide you to the separate living and dining rooms, the beautiful balcony opens out to unprecedented views of the sparkling Indian Ocean.
Undoubtedly so, these suites entail state-of-the-art technology yet the plush interiors are infused with notes of Sri-Lankan tradition and culture. Wooden architecture graces the entire living space, in a gracious representation of authentic Sri-Lankan architecture. The marble-clad bathroom entails a glass-enclosed shower, a deep soaking tub, designer bath amenities and extra-large towels; while the over-sized bedroom’s authentic chic décor immerses you in luxurious resort-style living.
