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.

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

We had a nice time in this hotel, many pluspoints for a very reasonable price. Very close to the beach, a garden which provides shade and amusement in the form of squirrels, great service from the staff, a generous fruit plate at breakfast. There are some minus points: there was a cocaroach crawling on the wall when we entered and... More

We stayed at Shahira hotel for 4 days in September 2014. First impression wasn't that good, but eventually we enjoyed staying there! Hotel is very close to the Ocean and Pigeon Island. The manager, Mohammed was very helpful and responsible. We payed 75 bucks for three days and I think Shahira is probably the best price-quality place to stay in... More
