Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena Wednesday declared open the Shangri-La Hambantota Resort & Spa in the port city of Hambanthota.

Hong Kong-based Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, one of the major hotel chains to enter the island after the end of a war with Tamil Tiger separatists, invested US$ 120 million in the 145-acre, 300-room beachfront resort.

The resort is home to an 18-hole golf course, an expansive spa and an artisan village that celebrates local arts and craft, according to the hotel’s website.

The chain has separately invested US$ 400 million in a mixed complex in Colombo scheduled to open in 2017.
