Golfing enthusiasts will delight in a stay at Shangri-La Hambantota, home to a stunning 18-hole golf course offering exceptional views of the Indian Ocean. Even if you don't take advantage of the Rodney Wright-designed course, there's plenty to keep the whole family occupied. Drop the kids off at the Cool Zone Kids’ Club, where they'll have access to an outdoor waterpark and fun-filled activities, while you get pampered at Chi Ayurveda Spa or enjoy sundowners at Gimanhala Lounge. There are three other incredible restaurants to dine at, as well as three swimming pools and a fitness centre. For the adventurous traveller, try out the seven-metre-high trapeze or join a nature walk along the winding trails surrounding the resort. Venturing out the hotel is a wild experience, with Sri Lanka's three famous national parks – Yala, Udawalawe and Lunugamvehera National Parks – all about an hour's drive away.
