    I was there at that time. Have to say the team from the hotel managed the situation nicely. After that the event went off well.. Wish them all the best for the newly opened hotel and can't wait to see their sister property in Colombo.

    This is what happens when one tries to take credit for something they didn't do

    Seems a good place for a straw roof bar-B-Que. Wasn't any other city other than Hambantota and Colombo good enough for Shangri-La?

    Oh what a fiery start. Hope the venture is a success.

    Another "Towering Inferno"?

    Anything and everything in Hambantota seems to be a failure.
