I am Shangri-La Hambantota. I am both the largest resort as well as the first and only golf resort on the island. Overlooking the pristine southern coast of Sri Lanka, I am located right along the ancient Spice Route in a city teeming with history. Relax by one of my three pools, gorge at one of my three restaurants or participate in an array of experiences; there will never be a dull moment.



Within driving distance of Hambantota is an abundance of natural beauty.  From the famous Yala National Park to the lesser known Udawalawe, Lunugamvehera and Bundala National Parks, there is so much wildlife waiting to be discovered. I recommend Udawalawe because of its large elephant population, you are almost guaranteed to run into one if not multiple parades. Awake before the sun and travel by an open air safari jeep to the park as the sun peaks over the horizon. It is a magical experience.

Spoil your mind, body and soul. Within my gardens, I have 3 swimming pools and a health club. But if you seek even more relaxation, come indulge at my Chi Ayurveda Spa. Here I offer ancient healing therapies and personalized Ayurveda consultations from one of my knowledgeable in-house doctors.

Let your taste buds saunter across my vibrant dining destinations. From Sri Lankan fare at Bojunhala, and South East Asian flavors at Sera to an array of international cuisine, at Ulpatha, the resort’s Golf Club House. End the day watching the sun dip below the horizon at Gimanhala Lounge, offering handcrafted cocktails, hookah and magnificent views of the Indian Ocean.



Every Tuesday and Friday you can indulge on divine street food inspired by famous hawker stalls at the on-site restaurant Sera. Go from stall to stall, to order an array of tasty Southeast Asian dishes.

Make sure to bring the family. With an extensive list of recreational activities, and the comprehensive kids’ club, this is the perfect place to bring the kids. Drop them off for the day, so you can go explore or relax without any worry. Plus who wouldn’t want to experience the thrills of a 7-metre high trapeze, an outdoor water park and many more fun-filled activities.

The unique on-site Artisan Village gives you an opportunity to explore and interact with the local artists and craftsmen. The Artisan Village is a space dedicated to supporting and preserving the treasures of southern Sri Lanka’s artisan communities, and comes alive with regular traditional dance and music performances in the evening.


Rooms start at $250 USD (Double occupancy). This includes a scrumptious breakfast buffet at Bojunhala.­
