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

Excellent Hospitality and Service!!

Los Angeles, California

We just returned to the USA after a 3 week stay at the Shangri-La in Colombo, Sri Lanka and wanted to take a few minutes to share some feedback on the excellent service and hospitably we received during our stay. Exceptional hotel facilities, Oceanview room accommodations and the quality of food and beverages were outstanding. We were in a Horizon Club level room and the staff across all parts of the hotel were very attentive and provided us with excellent service. We were made to feel at home and very comfortable throughout our long stay at the hotel. Here are a few staff members that went above and beyond the call of duty: Chef - Vipula De Silva who always came by during breakfast to see if everything we needed was available and a shout out to the other team members in the Sappyr Lounge. Bellman - Mohamed Mafaz who was always there to assist when leaving or entering the hotel. Room Attendant - Nipuna never missed a thing during our stay. Assistant Manager- Sanath Wijesinghe, Amanda, Deshan and the rest of the team at the Horizon Club, made sure we were comfortable and had what we needed at the Horizon Club. Guest Relations – Radinka who always greeted us with a smile and checked into our comfort at the hotel was very helpful. 3 weeks in a hotel is a long time, but the hospitality displayed by all the staff made our stay special. Thank you, Shangri-La team, we will definitely be back and will recommend the hotel to family and friends!
