Had an amazing stay with Karen and Rohan. Beautiful suite, gorgeous food, pool to myself and only a short tuk tuk ride to the beach, local town and transport connections. The staff couldn't do more for their guests - any requests was sorted quickly and the whole visit felt very personal and relaxing.

Very nice restful stay thanks. The kids really enjoyed playing with your staff. The pool was great and the rooms are very nice. It was a lovely penultimate night in Sri Lanka. Thanks for organising transport and hotel for the next night.

This is beautiful small property with just 5 gorgeous rooms. We were looked after brilliantly by the staff and Karen was so efficient with arranging our tour to Yala. We ate at some of Bentotas recommended restaurants - Mali's was good but the food cooked by chef Rohan at Shangri Lanka was the best food we had the whole trip....

I can't explain it but something drew me to Shangri-lanka villa & all I can say is I'm glad I went with my gut instinct. While it's a little bit of a shock to the system when you first drive down the little country road to the villa, once you enter the gates & are taken straight to your room...

I can't think of anything that this establishment lacks. Incredible food, beautiful gardens and pool. Staff wonderful and friendly. Rooms huge and spotless. Very homely feel. The prices are cheap in comparison to other resorts we've stayed at with similar quality.

I would like to thank Rowan and his team for a wonderful stay at the villas. The room was clean, bright and well furnished. The garden is beautiful and you can spot lots of wildlife as well as give Rowan’s dogs bobby and maisy a good cuddle. The villa is quite far out of the way, but it is worth...
