The best room I stayed in during my time in Sri Lanka. Huge room, huge bed, palatial bathroom! They think of everything and the service is exceptional and the dogs are always there to keep you company. Western food is lovely. I would have liked a wider selection of vegetarian Sri Lankan cuisine but this is a very minor point....

Right from the start this was always going to be fab. No check in, just taken straight to our delightful, spacious bedroom, with everything there you needed. Free wifi and laptop, in case you needed to connect. A.C. and... a ceiling fan for those not liking A.C. enough space to slob. A quiet patio off our bedroom, where we hung...

We chose to spend our last few days relaxing at Shangri-Lanka villas after our 10 days travelling and it was a truly lovely environment in which to just "chill out". The villas are large and airy with a decent sized balcony. The pool was a delight and all staff warm, welcoming and always willing to help out with any request.

We stayed for two nights and it was lovely. Karen and Rohan very capably and kindly handled all the details of our visit, including pick up from the airport. They were especially accommodating to our kids. Even a short power outage couldn't dampen our spirits - and the candlelight dinner was just as perfect as ever! Definitely order the Sri...

We recently spent 16 nights at this excellent guest house. This was our fourth visit to Sri Lanka, but our first time staying at Shangri- Lanka Villa.

This was our third visit to the guest house and yet again we had a fantastic time! In fact we liked it so much, we have already booked up our fourth visit! There have been some structural changes since last year and two extra rooms have been added in a separate block. If you are a return guest you do...

“At Bentota room 5 has wonderful early morning views across the rear gardens to the massage building. We also stayed in Room 2, and as it has a bath, it was our favourite. Nothing to differentiate between the Tissa accommodation, all 3 were excellent.”
