We weren't off to a good start at this place. Arrived after a fairly long travel and just agreed to the first room that was offered to us. We stupidly also thought A/C isn't necessary as we were expecting a breeze to be coming from the sea - big mistake (x2). Room 204 on the first floor - the old... More

Very Friendly Staff. Owner is very nice guy. We loved this location and really liked the accommodation itself. Food Is very cheap and... More

The greatest advantage of this hotel is that is really is on the beach! Breakfast and dinner is served in the restaurant that is situated next to the beach or even on a table in the sand on the beach itself. The hotel and its rooms itself were a bit old (we had a basic room, the more expensive rooms... More

The restaurant here had nothing that I ordered. Each time that I ordered (whatever the selection) it was unavailable. They can't make a pot of tea either, which I found to be astonishing, given the 'Tea Country' bent on things in Sri Lanka. I started to suspect that they didn't like me for some reason (in the end, it was... More

I can't say enough good things about Shiva's. It's basic but clean and so convenient for the beach - it's only a few steps away. The staff really make Shiva's what it is, especially the owner. He really went above and beyond to make sure we had a great stay, nothing was too much trouble for him and he never... More

4 of us stayed at the Shivas beach resort for 3 nights in 209 on the sunrise facing side of the island. It really was the perfect luxury vacation from start to finish. The staff were friendly and welcoming from start to end. The rooms were well equipped and there was always a sense that they go the extra mile.... More

We stayed here right before the start of the season and practically had the beach to ourselves. The hotel was situated on the beach with a lovely little open resturaunt that had magnificent views of the ocean. Staff were super friendly, helpful and provided us with a very relaxing stay. Basic hotel rooms, no hot water for shower in our... More

We stayed at Shiva's beach resort in Jan 2015. IT was off season so it was really quiet. Accommodation was clean, cheap and location was great. It is actually on the beach. Gardens are nice and the food was good. Stuff was very helpful. When we arrived they were just getting ready to open for the season yet they did... More

Just next to the sea with laying chairs on the beach. We were here off season when they just started to renovate the rooms, since a new owner leads that resort. We got a good room with a cozy and soft mattrace for a good price. The restaurant is under palm trees directly next to the beach. The food was... More
