We’ve teamed-up with award-winning sports holiday company ST Sports to offer one lucky bunkered reader the chance to win a five-night holiday for two to one of Sri Lanka’s newest five-star resorts: Shangri-La’s Hambantota Golf Resort & Spa.

The prize includes two rounds of golf per person at the resort’s 18-hole golf course. Set amid a vast coconut palm plantation, it offers spectacular views and distinctive challenges for both casual and seasoned players.

Designed by Rodney Wright, the beautifully landscaped par-70 course takes players on a memorable golfing journey through three landscaped zones, each with its own unique character: the Coconut Plantation with its lush fairways and challenging bunkers, the Dune Area with its subtle elevation changes that give way to breath-taking views of the Indian Ocean, and the Sapphire Mine, which showcases generous greens with an abundance of water features.

Shangri-La’s Hambantota Golf Resort has also recently launched a driving range so that guests can practice their swing with views of the ocean.

The prize also includes a River Boat safari for two down the Walawe River to explore the island’s exotic wildlife.

Framed by swaying king coconut trees, Shangri-La’s Hambantota Golf Resort & Spa is located on Sri Lanka’s ancient Spice Route, along the island’s lush, unspoiled Southern coastline; 2018’s region to watch in Sri Lanka.

With 145 acres of tropical gardens, there is ample space at this striking property for guests to unwind within the spectacular surroundings, and make the most of the impressive facilities.

Most notable include CHI – the spa which focuses on Ayurvedic treatments – three swimming pools, a unique Artisan Village celebrating local arts and crafts and an array of al fresco dining options.

Shangri-La’s Hambantota Golf Resort & Spa is ideally located to discover a world of wonder.

Perfectly placed to enjoy Sri Lanka’s most iconic nature reserves and safaris at Yala, Bundala and Udawalawe national parks, it is also an easy drive from the island’s prime surfing and whale-watching spots.
