Everything about ShangiLanka is as others have described. Small boutique hotel, only 5/6 room but with a great relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere, the 6 or so staff catered for all your needs in a friendly and professional way, nothing was too much trouble. It is set back from the beach by half a mile or so which adds to the...

We first came to Shangri Lanka Villa in 2012, and returned this year with four friends. Karen organised a ten day tour of the island which is a must. Sri Lanka has so much variety with ancient cities, temples, gardens, the tea plantations (beautiful), safaris and of course pristine beaches. Rohan was excellent. He is a safe driver and arranged...

One of our top spots. Everything the reviews say is spot on. Beautiful place where everything is thought of. Lovely guest house feel but with all the luxury of a five star hotel. Don't be put off by not being on the beach. The 10 min walk there down a country lane is lovely with locals passing on push bikes...

Fabulous place to have seen in the New Year, (complete with fireworks) followed by a few days of total pampering and relaxation. Thoroughly enjoyed indulging in the traditional herbal treatments available and quiet pool times. So conveniently located to a spectacular beach for our early morning dips - on most occasions we had the beach totally to ourselves. Deciding to...

I have no complaints, only praise for Karen/ Rohan and their team, our whole stay was amazing. Pros Super HUGE and CLEAN rooms- seriously, a family...

What a jewell of a place, secluded within a lush setting and only a short stroll to a gorgeous beach. We could not have asked for a better way to kick off our Sri Lankan odyssey than our four night stay at the Shangri Lanka Villas! The wonderful owners and every one of the professional, friendly, and super helpful staff...
