Win a luxury holiday to Sri Lanka, worth over £4,000

We’ve partnered with luxury hotel group Shangri-La Hotels & Resorts to give readers the chance to win the trip of a lifetime to Sri Lanka.

Our winner and guest will travel with Sri Lankan Airlines to Colombo, arriving in a sleek Jaguar at the Shangri-La Hotel, Colombo, where they’ll enjoy two nights’ bed and breakfast in a premier ocean-view room. An exhilarating tuk-tuk tour will acquaint you with the city before you enjoy contemporary Sri Lankan cuisine at the hotel’s Kaema Sutra restaurant.

There’ll be time to make the most of Colombo’s famed ocean views and sunsets – and enjoy an elegant afternoon tea in the hotel’s Sapphyr Lounge – before being driven to Shangri-La’s Hambantota Golf Resort & Spa on Sri Lanka’s stunning southern coast.

Here you’ll have three nights to swim, eat and relax amid beautiful tropical gardens – with a few surprises in store. Shangri-La’s bespoke Dine by Design service will create a memorable gourmet experience just for you during your stay – perhaps a torchlit table in the jungle, or dinner in the chef’s garden. A peaceful boat safari down the Walawe river will be your chance to see Sri Lanka’s diverse wildlife up close, such as langur monkeys, water buffalo, wild peacocks and other tropical birds.

The resort’s 140 acres are also home to an artisan village, where you can learn more about traditional Sri Lankan arts and crafts, and you’ll have the chance to feast on more local cuisine, including fresh seafood, at resort restaurant Bojunhala… So many special memories to reflect on during your chauffeured drive back to Colombo, ready for your flight home.

Our winner and guest will fly from Heathrow to Colombo (and return) with Sri Lankan Airlines. Relax and enjoy complimentary bar service and a choice from up to three main courses, plus light snacks. Exciting in-flight entertainment, including more than 100 movies, will make time fly.

  1. I believe in miracles and Christmas wishes and I know how stunning and diverse this country is and we would love to visit it. If not lucky, we wish whoever is, all the best for what is going to be a fantastic holiday.

  2. Nice to see the recovery post-tsunami and other major problems of the recent past. Good luck to you (except at cricket, where I trust England will prevail!).

  3. We stayed in Shangri-La hotels last year in Penang and Borneo and they were terrific! Toured Sri Lanka 16 years ago, starting and finishing in Colombo and would love to return next year – beautiful country and lovely people.

  4. Just entering has already given the gift of envisaging going and that in itself has made me look up on Sri Lanka and dream. I’m a winner either way .

  5. Just come back from Colombo and walked past this place on the green but was on a work trip.Promised i would take my darling wife to see the Galle Face Green sunset so fingers crossed!

  6. Like all who entered would love to win such a fantastic prize, but that said…
    Just want to wish all on here a Happy and Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year :)

  7. I have relatives all over Sri Lanka I’ve never even met. Would be a trip of a lifetime to go to this far flung place from home where my relatives from my grandfather’s side of the family are. Everything crossed. lol.

  8. Been reading delicious since sister in law bought subscription which we now renew yearly. My partners 60 next Valentine’s Day so would be the perfect place to celebrate but still wish everyone else best of luck.

  9. we love Delicious and can’t wait to open it every month! Winning this holiday would be the “icing on the cake” especially as I reach the big 50 next year!
