We stayed for 6 nights at Shangri-Lanka Villa, also using it as a base for a 5-day tour organised by the owners, Rohan and Karen. This is a small and charming hotel and very well run by the hard working Reymond and his team. The rooms are clean, large and bright. The attractive gardens and pool add to the relaxed...

From the moment I first contacted Karen until today as we end our 3 weeks in Karen and Rohan's care everything has been fantastic. This property is very special with great staff, delicious food, comfortable rooms, lovely pool and massages. Karen organised a tour for my husband and I and all went extremely well. Our driver Sisi spoke excellent English...

I would like to thank Karen, Rohan and their team for making our stay a memorable one. The villa was beautiful, with a huge comfortable bed and one of the biggest bathrooms we've had on our travels. The surroundings were just magnificent. All the staff were courteous and helpful, the food was great. Although it would have been more convenient...

My wife and I stayed here for the last 5 nights of our month long trip around Sri Lanka. This is exactly what we needed to wind down and relax before our 2 day trip back to Australia. Everything about Shangri-Lanka Villa has been superb from the friendly staff to the lovely food. A must try is the traditional Sri...

"Lost in motion" we were beginning to think that the place did not exist; until not far from the main road, we stopped outside the gates to "Shangri-lanka. Greeted by Reymon and his team, a verdant, lush "oasis" unfolded. Capacious and superbly equipped bedroom & bathroom with private terrace. Every detail accounted for. Excellent service and superb cuisine. The best...

We stayed for six nights in December (incl Christmas Day) - the boutique hotel is well located in a quiet setting, yet only 10 min walk to a beach. A very welcoming and well organised boutique hotel with a friendly service throughout. Helpful owners and staff assisted us with booking cab transfers, calling for tuk-tuks and advising on local trips...

Family of 5: 3 kids who are 5 and under. We had a fabulous time, the kids loved exploring the lush green garden, splashing for endless hours by the beautiful pool. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on our terrace in the evenings listening to nature. My only comment would be for families-it would be good to have a kids menu to...
