We would like to congratulate Delvin Ferdinand and the Special Events Team for the exceptional Christmas Eve Dinner served at the Ballroom to our family and friends on the 24th of December 2019. Delvin was very courteous and accommodating to all our requests from the very beginning. All the members of the hotel, from the Security staff to Chefs at the Ballroom were friendly and professiomal. The atmosphere in the ballroom was festive and the room was tastefully decorated. The choice of food was well thought of and quality was of a very high standard. Of particular mention was the creative manner the desserts were made and displayed. The children of our table were delighted to say the least ! Our sincere thanks to the Shangrila Hotel Colombo for creating lasting Christmas 2019 memories.

We absolutely loved the cleanliness and the comfort of Shangri-La Colombo. Check in was easy, friendly staff and convenient location. Also it’s right by Galle Face Beach (no railroad track) so you can enjoy watching the sunset... or you can enjoy right from the hotel rooms & restaurants. My only feedbacks are.... -Teach staff to pull proper espressos. -An requirement to order food & drinks when using the cabana at the pool (a German family took up two cabana for hours, likely the entire day with no service).
