Having done a tour of sri lanka, we were pleased to just chill out at shangrilanka and were very well looked after by all the staff. The cook is fabulous and compares well with some of the best hotels we ate at on our tour. The room was lovely and the friendly dogs greeted us every morning at our door.... More

I have nothing to say but i wish to be back. One of the best experience in Sri Lanka. It feels like you are in the jungle but with all of the facilities. The people was very nice and welcome. The room was clean and very pleasant. The food was very good and we had perfect time.

This was the third year in a row that we have stayed at Shangri Lanka Villa. This in itself should be enough to confirm what other travelers are saying about the quality and lovely location of the villa. Karen & Rohan once again organized an excellent tour that this time included a short two night stay at their new place... More

We returned with friends in a group of 10. My wife and I requested one of the new rooms (room 5). We were so pleased that we did, all... More

This was the perfect stay for our family of three. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful, the room was perfect: large and comfortable bed, a day bed for our young daughter, huge bathroom and plenty of storage for our things. There is a safe in the room for valuables, a fan and a/c, which is much needed in the humidity.... More

Stayed for 9 nights after a tiring but amazing tour of Sri Lanka. We actually chilled and relaxed by the pool for most of our stay.This is the first holiday we have ever just relaxed. However, we would walk most mornings for over an hour, the coolest part of the day. It took us 8 minutes to walk to the... More
