Colombo's finest

Opened in November 2017, Shangri-La's flagship Colombo property promises an experience of contemporary luxury and outstanding service that goes above and beyond that of any hotel in this rapidly emerging city.

Featuring some of the largest hotel rooms in the city, exceptional club-level services, as well as drawing from their world renowned level of attentive service, the Shangri-La Colombo promises to be the ideal setting for a short stay with exceptional standards. Choose from a range of rooms from the tasteful comfort of the Deluxe rooms to the oversized oppulent Suites with their panormic city and ocean views. 

We recommend this hotel for a pre and/or post tour stay. It is easily accessed by a short transfer from the island's international aiport as well as being in a prime city location for exploring the vibrant and ever-growing life of Colombo.

Shangri La Sensation

We travel extensively and high end accommodation is important to us ... as is good, friendly service! Ajani handled our booking in conjunction with the front desk staff. To write that Ajani’s efforts towards making our stay a magical experience would be a gross understatement - she went far beyond our expectations and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. All the staff in other outlets were professional, attentive and very friendly.. from the pool boys .... Narish in particular through to housekeeping and the Sapphire bar (Conagilia especially) we’re just lovely and made our stay very special indeed! I can always find fault with a property or hotel .. but in this case I am at a loss to find fault .. EVERYTHING including the stunning interior of the rooms and public areas, through to the room facilities and front desk procedures were absolutely perfect. Ajani you are a star and we thank you so much! I also thank everyone else on staff ... you did a magnificent job and I would sing your praises and recommend the hotel to anyone. Anthony

Beyond amazing!

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

This is by far the best hotel in Colombo in terms of standards, services, accessibility, and cleanest. It’s a brand new hotel and deserves to be a 5 star hotel. Loved our stay here, we had the two bedroom apartment for the family and the rest is history! They are very flexible, welcoming staff at the front desk, at the restaurant for breakfast (which was more like a brunch then breakfast 👍🏽), swimming pool, and you name it. Everyone is ready to help you from the beginning to the end.
