Stunning table decor at Shangri-La’s Hambantota Resort & Spa

The evening was magical with live music and a table décor that could please a royalty. With five course meal curated especially for the Indian Wedding Planners team organized by www.weddingfables.com and the weather God showering his blessings with soft wind and light drizzle the evening couldn’t have got better.

At the invitation of the spanking new Shangri-La’s Hambantota Resort & Spa, our team of wedding planners landed at the beautiful beach resort, which is about five and half hours drive from Colombo airport in the wee hours of morning on June 13th to be welcomed by the affable Dinu. We flew in by the Sri Lankan Airlines which is comfortable and were looked after well by the flight attendants. Hayleys Tours arranged our luxury road trip attending to our every whim and fancy on the way.

Pampered with the best the Resort had to offer, from spa experience at their beautiful Chi Spa and its cabanas that opened to beautiful lotus pond to the best its restaurant had offered, to the fabulous trip to the Ridiyagama Safari, it was grandeur at its best which ended with this beautiful evening.
