Shangri-La's Hambantota Golf Resort & Spa

Sri Lanka, Indian Ocean

The hotel

Throwing you into island life and luxury living at the same time, the 58 hectare Shangri-La Hambantota Golf Resort & Spa stretches along Sri Lanka’s stunning southern shore and is brimming with surprises – from a flying trapeze to an aquapark complete with ‘inflatable human ball’. You’ll know you’re in Sri Lanka whether you’re playing golf among the coconut palms on the island’s only golf resort; bathing in its three outdoor pools; tucking into dishes inspired by South East Asia’s hawker stalls at Sera; unwinding with Ayurvedic massages at the spa; or chatting with the artisans at The Village, with everything from batik painting by day to island dancing by night.
