Shangrilanka was so good we came back twice. as others have said the staff are amazing and make you feel comfortable and as if you are at home. Food was amazing and prepared in site of the guests and sometimes picked after you have ordered. Everything clean, pool big enough to swim in. Close to beach. Relaxing .

We stayed on a dinner bed & breakfast basis. Food was excellent, plenty of choice, tasty and beautifully presented. Kitchen was relatively open plan so you could see it was kept very clean and tidy. Bedroom was very large, spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. The air-conditioning worked well. Swimming pool was very clean with some shade so it could be... More

We stayed at Shangrilanka Villa for a very relaxing 7 nights. It's hard to know what to say that hasn't already been said in previous reviews. The staff are amazing and make you feel so welcome. It's like being welcomed into a family home (the relatives you would choose to stay with!). Nothing is too much trouble. The food is... More

This truly is a gem of a place. The suites are spacious and comfortable and the grounds, pool and surrounding forest scape are beautiful. But it is the warm welcome and great hospitality which sets Shangri Lanka out as truly excellent. We felt immediately welcome and relaxed very quickly, which is a testament to the great staff. The food was... More

I meant to write this review a long time ago but better late than never. We stayed at the villa in 2012 and it remains the best holiday as a family we have ever had. The owners could not do more to make us feel welcome. We are a family and at the time our children were 6,4 and 1... More

This was our fourth visit to this beautiful guest house yet again we were not disappointed. This five bedroom establishment offers services that are second to none. The staff: Raymond, Prem, Paraman, Rohan (Chef) and the two lads whose names I can’t spell (sorry), are all a credit to Karen and Rohan! Their smiles and desire to please are genuine... More

Truly difficult to find the words to express the wonders of this place and the pictures really do not do it justice. The gardens, the villas, the rooms, the staff, the pool, the wildlife all make it what it is. The rooms are immense, tastefully decorated with style and simplicity and exceptionally clean. The food is divine, breakfast served on... More

Stayed here 3 nights in March. It's a very nice hotel with large rooms and nice decor. Very friendly staff and a just a 10 min walk to a quiet beach. Food was good and they take requests. It's very clean and there is a family atmosphere. The only problem was the many (100s) small black flies which probably come... More

This was our second visit to Shangri lanka and it was every bit as wonderful second time around. Karen and Rohan are superb hosts and any e-mails regarding bookings always receive a prompt reply. The whole set up here is second to none and we love staying in this small guest house where we have been privileged to meet so... More
