Shangri-La to enter Sri Lanka

SHANGRI-La Hotels will mark its entry into Sri Lanka with the opening of a 500-key luxury hotel in Colombo in early 2014.

The hotel will be part of a multi-use complex with high-end retail facilities and deluxe apartments, on a 2.4-hectare plot of land facing the Galle Face green promenade.

Shangri-La also plans to develop a second property, a 300-key city resort on approximately 40.4 hectares of land in Hambantota, on the southern coast of Sri Lanka, to open in 2013.

“Both Shangri-La hotels strategically fit into the group’s ongoing expansion plans to link the Indian subcontinent and our South-east Asia developments,” said Greg Dogan, president and CEO of Shangri-La Hotels.
