My Family and I lived at a different hotel and was paying double the price. Once we saw the positive reviews by the TripAdvisor community about this hotel, we moved into it and never regretted our decision. The manager Mohamed was very helpful with all our questions regarding the places we wanted to visit. He also gave us a reasonable... More

We did not sleep in the Shahira Hotel but we ate there a few times and it was one of the best restaurants in Nilaveli comparing to the others. The food was very good and the prices fair. Most of all we liked the cosy and romantic atmosphere in the garden and the outstanding service by the waiters of the... More

Hotel is very close to the beach. I really enjoy the fishing at the early morning at the beach side together w/ local people. Lovely place, good sevice and very friendly stuff, especially Mohamed Sadig. I travelled alone, he always checked with me where I would go and with whom to make sure I'm safe.

Our stay at Shahira was lovely. The accomodation is modest, but very comfortable, and the staff, namely Mohamed Sadiq, was very kind and attentive. He was also helpful in organising scooters, bikes, and tuk-tuks at our request. It's also very close to the beach which makes for a scenic stay.

Nice hostel direct on the beach. The rooms are clean and the service really good. The host will help you with any questions you have. also a good place if you wanna snorkel around that area. We would stay there any time again.

This is an attractive little hotel close to the beach. Mohammed, the manager is very helpful, but not over intrusive. Whilst it is near the military base, so are all the hotels in Nilaveli, and you hardly notice it after the first time you walk past the armed guard room on the way to the beach. The food is not...

This hotel is a simple place, near Pigeon Island. The manager mr Mohamed Sadiq will do everything to give you a good time. There is a charming garden, and about 200 m from the beach. The price is very reasonable. Go and try it!

A nice enough place to stay the Manager Mohammed is a pleasant and efficient man with a good sense of humour, the rooms are large and well kept though in summer the fans struggle to keep the heat out as we had a hot wind blowing from the east, fortunately a few minutes walk to the refreshing sea. The food... More
