Shangri-La Hotel, Colombo

As you enter the Shangri-La Hotel, Colombo, the first thing you’ll notice is how open and bright it feels, as though the Indian Ocean zephyr is moving right through the foyer. Wide hallways decorated in white marble and cooling pastel tones are bordered by lattice walls and floor to ceiling windows allowing light to flood in and drench the spaces in sunlight. Whether you’re walking through the central lobby, the Sapphyr Lounge or the Horizon Club Lounge, the effect is the same: complete tranquillity.

The selection of rooms and suites on offer continue this theme. Reflecting the cooling tones of the surrounding Indian Ocean, rooms are decorated in soothing tones of white, oat and turquoise, and provide panoramic views of the city or the ocean. Not satisfied with offering some of the largest rooms in any hotel in the city, Shangri-La have also stocked each room with luxurious features such as 300-thread-count bed linen, marble bathrooms and Spa Ceylon amenities.

With a wide variety of health facilities on offer, unwinding at the resort is easy. Soak up the sun on one of many distinctive bright yellow sun loungers set beside one of the largest pools in the city, or for more hands-on rejuvenation there’s also a 24-hour fitness suite plus a Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room in the Health Club. Too add to this, no Shangri-La Hotel would be complete without a spa. Incorporating traditional Sri Lankan, Balinese, Malaysian, Thai and Chinese techniques, The Chi Spa excels in promoting physical and mental wellbeing through an extensive menu of spa treatments.

It’s always a good sign when a hotel’s dining venues are popular with local residents and other travellers and this is certainly true of the restaurants and bars in the Shangri-La Hotel, Colombo. While the eclectic surroundings and authentic local cuisine served in Kaema Sutra offers the perfect place to celebrate Sri Lankan heritage, Shang Palace presents an intoxicating and extensive selection of authentic Chinese dishes served within an atmospheric setting that’s perfect for a romantic meal. Alternatively, the Capital Bar & Grill with its open kitchen and al fresco dining space is ideal for a leisurely evening of dining with your family or a big group of friends.
