We stayed for two nights and it was lovely. Karen and Rohan very capably and kindly handled all the details of our visit, including pick up from the airport. They were especially accommodating to our kids. Even a short power outage couldn't dampen our spirits - and the candlelight dinner was just as perfect as ever! Definitely order the Sri...

So most of the reviews already say what a great place this is, and how its stuff dreams are made from and with such high expectations it is hard for this place to live up to such high standards - but it does.... We had the pleasure of staying here for three weeks in March, and it is hard to...

We recently spent 16 nights at this excellent guest house. This was our fourth visit to Sri Lanka, but our first time staying at Shangri- Lanka Villa. The reports on Tripadvisor were so good that we felt that we had to try it, and we were certainly not disappointed. The villa and the gardens are beautiful and there is an...

We stayed in one of the new rooms..large white and airy, well furnished with comfy mattress, nice bed-linen and lovely brightly coloured cushions etc. The garden and pool are most attractive, lots of interesting birds and wild-life to be seen. No problem with mosquitos as doors were shut when lights on and service was excellent with nothing too much trouble...

This place is more of a small hotel than B&B given the level of (almost 24hr) service available by friendly & helpful staff. We were in 1 of the new rooms, which was massive (a London studio could fit in the bathroom alone), very clean & comfortably equipped. (We had no probs with mossies, but kept our doors closed when...

Situated in the marsh lands, behind Bentota beach, you find a secluded large villa with 5 large very nicely decorated and clean bedrooms. Service it top notch, all prices are reasonable. Food is from higher quality than average. Is Shangri-Lanka Villa he lost Paradise? No, their major problem are mosquitos. Be careful in a denque infested region. Our bathroom without...

Thank you so much for taking the time to give us some feedback. We greatly appreciate your acknowledgment of our high standard and fair prices as that is one of our main goals.
