Shangri-La Colombo

Colombo's finest

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 airport as well as being in a prime city location for exploring the vibrant and ever-growing life of Colombo.
