Stayed here 3 nights in March. It's a very nice hotel with large rooms and nice decor. Very friendly staff and a just a 10 min walk to a quiet beach. Food was good and they take requests. It's very clean and there is a family atmosphere. The only problem was the many (100s) small black flies which probably come...

We stayed here in February and the owners actually really helped us plan our holiday and travel plans beyond just Bentota. The Accommodation was very nice and away from the main road/rail track, so it was very quiet and tranquil. It was a about a 5 minute walk down the country road to the main road. The owners arranged transport...

We chose to stay at Shangri Lanka after reading glowing reports on the trip adviser site. From our first contact with Karen to leaving to return home the standard of customer service provided was nothing short of exceptional. Prior to departing the UK Karen provided invaluable advice on a variety of subjects ranging from flight info to island tours. On...

So much has already been written about Shangri Lanka Villa that it's very difficult to find anything further to add. The accommodation exceeded my already high expectations. The room was huge, spotlessly clean, air conditioned and with a very large bathroom. Food is wonderful, there only being 5 rooms means that you virtually gave a chef at your complete disposal,...

What has Shangri-Lanka got that others don't have? You arrive at the gates after travelling down a small lane and you are greeted by a toothless little man with a big smile and two friendly dogs, one of which "talks". The smiles continue as you are welcomed to this oasis in the jungle and led through the garden to your...
