Confusingly this is listed as Shangri La on TA. The theme is Flinstones meets resort, but in a good way. The grounds are beautiful, tropical and well maintained; the ground is a tapestry of grass; hammocks swing in the gentle breeze. At night, fire flies come out to play, their green orbs mysteriously sparkle in the gloom. Our hut was... More

Been at January 2014. Wouldn't recommend. Place itself is quite good - lot of place, big garden with hammocks. Staff is friendly and ready to help. But anyway, when you pay for room with hot water you expect to get it at your room. But there were none. Stayed 3 nights at Kahoona club (ex Shangri La) and hot water... More

Very comfortable and relaxing place to stay with a beautiful, lushy garden. Great value! The food was absolutely delicious. Fresh, tasty and well presented. The owner and the staff were tremendous and always there to help with any request, nothing was too much trouble. LOVE this place! I'm hooked!

I live in eastern Sri Lanka, and when I want to relax I go to to the Kahuna Club. The setting is lovely, and the rooms are of good value. The owner, Mally, is a cheerful, excellent fellow who tries his best to make everyone feel welcome. Staff is open and friendly. As to some of the negative reviews, I... More

This guest house changed its name 8 months ago to Kahuna club, but didn't tell any of the locals we had quite a job finding it. The place itself is a mixture of hotel rooms. apartments and wooden cabanas, we stayed in one of the apartments which was basic but adequate for three people. The grounds were full of wildlife...

We stayed at Kahuna Club (formally Shangri La) in October for the last 3 nights of our holiday in Sri Lanka. Luckily there was only rain for one night on our trip to Unawatuna despite October being the rainiest season. The hotel is situated very close to the beach (5 minute walk) and set back within a beautiful jungle setting... More

Shangri La consist of the main house and several cabanas, some wooden, some concrete, strewn across well groomed garden. We stayed in wooden cabanas, and although they were designed for two, we got extra bed for a third person (and a small discount). Even with three persons, it was roomy enough, so two persons will have lots of space. Garden... More
