Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts today announced that Shangri-La Hotel, Colombo is set to open on 16 November 2017. Shangri-La Hotel, Colombo will be the second property in Sri Lanka for the luxury Asian hospitality group – joining Shangri-La’s Hambantota Golf Resort & Spa, which opened in June 2016 – and is anticipated to be one of the most prominent hotel launches in Sri Lanka in nearly 30 years.
Shangri-La Hotel, Colombo located at the most exclusive address in Colombo
Located at One Galle Face along the Galle Face Green promenade, which is the most exclusive address in Colombo, the hotel will offer uninterrupted Indian Ocean views in most of its 500 guestrooms and suites and 41 serviced apartments. The hotel sits on 10 acres of land that will also soon accommodate an office tower, two residential buildings and a high-end shopping mall, bringing a new level of luxury to the thriving, metropolitan city of Colombo. The hotel is a 40-minute drive from the Colombo Bandaranaike International Airport.
Shangri-La Hotel, Colombo will allow travellers who are beginning their Sri Lankan holidays or in town for meetings to experience a mix of Shangri-La’s Asian elegance and a contemporary style inspired by the country’s abundant nature and incredible beauty. In connecting this concept, the hotel commissioned celebrated Chinese artist Man Fung-Yi to create a life-sized infant elephant metal sculpture to grace the hotel’s lobby and give a sense of place through an exciting blend of modernity and Sri Lanka’s nature.
