We had a nice stay at Shahira Hotel in Nilaveli. It is a basic hotel, but it works. There is nice staff, and nice chairs outside the rooms. We enjoyed drinking tea or cold fruit juices in the afternoon and evenings. The location is 3 min from beach and where you get transport to Pigeon Island. The owner Mr. Mohamed... More

The whole stay in nilaveli was dissapointing! We stayed 3 nights in shahira hotel. The first night we realised that the a/c is very loud and impossible to use, also the mattresses of the beds were unbearable. The second day, we changed the room to non a/c but as the fan was very loud, the night was very restless. As... More

We stayed in Nilaveli to go snorkeling at Pigeon Island. The hotel was great, although it is situated next to a military base. To go to the beach on the other side of the base, you should take a tuktuk, since it is about 7 km away. Dinner was great, we sat outside in the garden of the hotel. We... More

Lovely 'home style' accommodation, where you feel like a guest. Mr Mohamed Sadiq was so helpful, ironing out any small problem we had during our stay. Lovely to sit outside your room in the heat of the day, and in the evening tables and chairs were set up in the garden to make a lovely setting for dinner. All food... More

We stayed at this hotel 1 night. We payed 2600LKR (7th of july). Hotel manager was good and helpfull. Very good and free wifi connection. Rooms were simple, clean and have mosquito net. Bed is hard. However, no hot watter and no "closed"window, just a mosquito net as window. Advantage: -clean rooms -location (30m from the see) -hotel manager is... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel is only 50m away from the beach. Rooms are cute and clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful and gave us a warm welkom. They put flowers next to your room everyday and serve a good meal.

My friend and me stayed 2 nights there and had a great time! Rooms were simple, clean and at quite reasonable prices. Dinner and juices were delicious there! Since we traveled during off-season, there were almost no people there, the beach empty - so everything perfect to relax!

Stayed here in early June. Beds and pillows are very hard and there is no AC. Very friendly staff though and got food from the restaurant quickly. Close to the lovely beach. Pigeon Island is a must if you are visiting Nilaveli beach!

Not a luxury place but offers clean, basic accommodation. The room and bathroom were large. As everyone writes, Mohammed takes care of any problems. Breakfast (Western style) was good; we did not eat any other meals here.

Mohamed Sadiq did everything he could to make our stay enjoyable in Nalaveli. Nothing was too much trouble. In the evening tables and chairs were set up in the garden to make a lovely setting for dinner (which is great as not much else was around!). All food was good and freshly cooked. We were able to use towels and... More
