With its postcard perfect wild beaches, contemporary design and world class service, Shangri-La’s Hambantota Resort & Spa offers a luxury piece of paradise. Built on a former coconut plantation, the property features an open plan design of the facilities, inviting the lush outdoors in and offering stunning unobscured views of the sea and tropical vegetation at every turn.

While modern and contemporary, the décor is laden with elegant local influences. From the intricate teak latticework to the woven rugs and the coconut shell mosaics, the craftsmanship is impeccable.

Active guests will find plenty for them here. You can increase your handicap at the eco friendly, 18 hole golf course on your doorstep or join the circus for a couple of hours and try the 23ft high trapeze and trampoline. Alternatively, simply wander around the 145 acre grounds, where you’ll find an abundance of wildlife, perhaps even a majestic elephant.
