We chose to stay at Shangri Lanka after reading glowing reports on the trip adviser site. From our first contact with Karen to leaving to return home the standard of customer service provided was nothing short of exceptional. Prior to departing the UK Karen provided invaluable advice on a variety of subjects ranging from flight info to island tours. On...

So much has already been written about Shangri Lanka Villa that it's very difficult to find anything further to add. The accommodation exceeded my already high expectations. The room was huge, spotlessly clean, air conditioned and with a very large bathroom. Food is wonderful, there only being 5 rooms means that you virtually gave a chef at your complete disposal,...

What has Shangri-Lanka got that others don't have? You arrive at the gates after travelling down a small lane and you are greeted by a toothless little man with a big smile and two friendly dogs, one of which "talks". The smiles continue as you are welcomed to this oasis in the jungle and led through the garden to your...

This was our second time at Shangri Lanka. It was the first place we stayed at on our first visit to Sri Lanka in November 2012 and we said then that we would return. We did for 6 nights in February 2014. The food cooked by Rohan the Chef and staff is wonderful and although it was tempting to go...

Everything about ShangiLanka is as others have described. Small boutique hotel, only 5/6 room but with a great relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere, the 6 or so staff catered for all your needs in a friendly and professional way, nothing was too much trouble. It is set back from the beach by half a mile or so which adds to the...

We first came to Shangri Lanka Villa in 2012, and returned this year with four friends. Karen organised a ten day tour of the island which is a must. Sri Lanka has so much variety with ancient cities, temples, gardens, the tea plantations (beautiful), safaris and of course pristine beaches. Rohan was excellent. He is a safe driver and arranged...

One of our top spots. Everything the reviews say is spot on. Beautiful place where everything is thought of. Lovely guest house feel but with all the luxury of a five star hotel. Don't be put off by not being on the beach. The 10 min walk there down a country lane is lovely with locals passing on push bikes...

Fabulous place to have seen in the New Year, (complete with fireworks) followed by a few days of total pampering and relaxation. Thoroughly enjoyed indulging in the traditional herbal treatments available and quiet pool times. So conveniently located to a spectacular beach for our early morning dips - on most occasions we had the beach totally to ourselves. Deciding to...
