The best room I stayed in during my time in Sri Lanka. Huge room, huge bed, palatial bathroom! They think of everything and the service is exceptional and the dogs are always there to keep you company. Western food is lovely. I would have liked a wider selection of vegetarian Sri Lankan cuisine but this is a very minor point.... More

We chose to spend our last few days relaxing at Shangri-Lanka villas after our 10 days travelling and it was a truly lovely environment in which to just "chill out". The villas are large and airy with a decent sized balcony. The pool was a delight and all staff warm, welcoming and always willing to help out with any request.
