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.... More

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... More

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.
