Shangri-La Hotel Colombo

Hi,

We are considering a short stay in Colombo before beach resort holiday.

We have seen the Shangri-La Colombo on various sites but unfortunately there are no reviews.

Is this a new hotel or an existing hotel taken over by the Shangri -La Group?

Does anyone have more information?

Many Thanks.

Peter L Harris

It's brand new, not even certain whether it's fully open yet and if not when that opening (soft and full) are planned.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
