Every aspect of the stay was of excellent quality: the rooms were spacious, stylish, and very comfortable, and the bathtub was a particular luxury. Our stay was very quiet because of the Covid situation, but the tranquility of the hotel and its surroundings would no doubt be a constant. The pool area was especially lovely. The food was very tasty- the Sri Lankan breakfast in particular- and all the staff were obliging and extremely polite. Recommended!

We keep coming back to Shangri-Lanka, because it's one of our favorite hotels. The rooms are very spacious, nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. Bathroom is huge. Each room has its own terrace or balcony, where we had most of our meals. The pool is very nice. The staff is excellent, friendly, very helpful and the food is great. Nice and quiet location in a beautiful garden with many species of birds and plants. We can really recommend this hotel!

I had an amazing stay at Shangrilank villa this March! Despite what was going on outside in the world at the time U really couldn't have been more relaxed. My room was amazing and Karen, Rohan and all the staff were so friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for them. My favourite time of day was just sitting outside my room in the evening before dinner just watching the wildlife (palm squirrels, kingfisher, wading birds, lots of gecco's and the occasional mongoose!). The beach (awesome) was only a brief walk away which was great as was the food at the Villa. I can honestly say they do some of the best chips I have ever tasted..and I've had a few. First class.

Even before we arrived in Sri lanka we knew our holiday at Shangri-Lanka-Villa was going to be "Just Perfect ".Karen & Rohan answered all our e-mails so quickly &helped us to plan our trip. The Villa's are a little bit of Sri Lankan paradise,spotlessly clean, amazing food , great location & the staff are lovely, nothing to much trouble. We stayed a total of 7 nights, split into a 3 & then a 4 night stay after returning from a 7 day tour which Karen & Rohan planned & organised for us perfectly. While in Tissamaharama we also stayed at Shangri-Lanka-Village also owned by Karen & Rohan, again paradise! We cannot recommend these Villa's highly enough & also the first class service with a personal touch that we received. We would also like to give a special mention to Sammi who was our driver who was more than just a guide he was our travelling companion as well, excellent knowledge, safe driver & just a lovely person, again he was part of our trip that was all organised for us. Thank you to Karen, Rohan & all your wonderful staff for making our holiday "Just Perfect ".

We have stayed at Shangri Lanka Villa before and always enjoyed our stay. This time (March 2020) was no different. Our room was super clean and beautifully presented on arrival and the staff cleaned the room every day. Food at the villa is excellent especially the fresh fish dishes. Premalal and his team of staff are always on hand and nothing is too much trouble. Soon after our arrival in Sri Lanka Covid-19 became a very serious issue around the world and as such we had to cancel our trips that we’d organised. Consequently we spent all of our holiday at Shangri Lanka Villa mainly sat in the beautifully laid out tropical garden with pool. We can wholeheartedly recommend Shangri Lanka for a beautifully relaxing place to stay with good service, good food and nice atmosphere. Our thanks to Karen and Rohan (the owners) and Prem and his team for making our stay during what was a very uncertain time for everybody so much easier and reassuring. Stay safe.
