My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in April 2011. We were offered a pick up but didn't know what time we were arriving. It was easy to find by tuk-tuk. Our room (top floor) was very spacious with a lovely, large, bathroom and sofa. The service and help from the owners is excellent and they offer free tuk-tuks to the beach (five minutes by tuk-tuk or a pleasent 10 minute walk). The pool at the villa is lovely and we spent a lot of time in it! We were leant a laptop and dvds so were able to check in for our flight and relax. The nearby stretch of beach is beautiful and deserted and also very close to a turtle hatchery. I highly recommend Shangri-Lanka!

Room Tip: Ask for the top floor room

we stayed here between Christmas and New year,we needed a good rest after a hectic 18 months,we found Shangri-Lanka Villa.We loved everything about the place and we cannot thank Karen, Rohan&all the staff enough, for making the first part of our holiday so wonderful. We apologize(Karen&Rohan)for taking so long to write this review but since returning to the UK life has been just as hectic as before, we will be in need of some TLC come Christmas time again.We try to emulate the service and attention to detail, in our own business, that we received here.

it is difficult to add to all of the other reviews but we will try. We took a 7 day tour of Sri Lanka which was a fantastic way to experience a truly lush country - Rohan is a fantastic guide helpful patient and very knowledgeable - we followed with 6 days of rest and relaxation and truly restful it was, Rohan and Karen are natural hosts and the atmosphere amongst the guests was friendly without being intrusive, the rest of the team were extremely obliging and totally dedicated to offering an all round great experience. we unreservedly recommend Shangri-Lanka - Tim and Julie

sorry we have just got round to writing this karen!
wow............was my first impression of shangri lanka! i am so glad we stumbled across the villa on the internet. by far the nicest place we stayed in sri lanka. the rooms are so spotlessly clean, light and airy. bentota itself can be quite noisy due to the train line that runs through and the busy road. however shangri lanka villa is situated just off the main road and we heard no noise at all! i had the best sleeps of my holiday here.
unfortunately we were only able to stay 3 nights as the villa was fully booked. we were so sad to leave so if you know you want a week/2 weeks here my advise would be to try and book in advance.
karen and rohan are the perfect hosts, they made us feel so welcome. the atmosphere at the villa is so friendly too. with it being a small place in comparison to the big hotels, everyone gets to know each other and you instantly feel at home!! they also have 3 lads working for them who cant do enough for you.
shangri lanka would be my first choice of accommodation when going back to sri lanka.
thank you karen and rohan for making our stay so enjoyable.

Shangri-Lanka is a must, Karen & Rohan are amazing hosts, they looked after us so well. The place is spotlessly clean and the staff cannot do enough for you. We were amazed at how little it cost us to have a perfect week in Sri Lanka. Will certainly recommend it to everyone we know. Thanks again Karen & Rohan, we will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Any is a good choice
