Shangri-La Hambantota Resort and Spa in Sri Lanka launches local nature tours
The new luxury Shangri-La Hambantota Resort & Spa on Sri Lanka’s southern coast has announced a series of adventure tours and experiences for its guests to explore the island’s rich wildlife and natural wonders.
The newly-launched Shangri-La Hambantota Resort & Spa in southern Sri Lanka is offering a selection of tours covering the island’s renowned natural wonders and wildlife. Guests at the luxury resort can pick from adventure tours and experiences that include leopard-spotting in Yala National Park, whale-watching off Mirissa and encounters with elephants in Udawalawe National Park.
Located on Sri Lanka’s ancient spice route, hugging the island’s southern Indian Ocean coast, the Shangri-La has easy access to the country's finest nature and wildlife reserves, and most picturesque beaches. Its new guided tours and safaris include visits to:
Yala National Park
A huge protected area on Sri Lanka’s south-east coast that’s home to the elusive Sri Lankan leopard, as well as elephants, sloth bears, sambars, jackals, spotted deer, peacocks, and crocodiles.
Bundala National Park
A maze of waterways, lagoons and dunes on the southern coast, which is a habitat for countless exotic birds including greater flamingos, and also hosts elephants and crocodiles.
Udawalawe National Park
A huge reserve with a large population of Sri Lankan elephants, as well as local leopards and endemic birds.
A scenic and sandy crescent beach with a point break popular with surfers.
Sri Lanka’s whale-watching hub where a variety of cetaceans can be seen breaching the surf between November and April.
Within the resort there are also some unique features to keep guests entertained including the Kadamandiya cultural village, which acts as a hub for local artisans and artists, and the Cool Zone with trapezes, an outdoor aquatic park and a drone-flying area. Among the resort’s more traditional facilities is Sri Lanka's only premier 18-hole golf course set amid a large coconut palm plantation.
The hotel is part of the Shangri-La brand which owns and operates around 100 luxury hotels all over the world in destinations such as Oman, the Maldives, Thailand, Canada and the UK. The Hong Kong-based group is currently developing new hotels in mainland China, Cambodia, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Myanmar and Saudi Arabia.
