Shangri-Lanka is a beautiful guesthouse in a lovely peaceful rural setting. Such a relaxing place to stay - excellent service with the owners and all of the staff so helpful and friendly. The food is very tasty indeed, especially the traditional Sri Lankan breakfast and the tropical fruit jam! Very reasonably priced and the rooms are huge and very comfortable....

A wonderful moment of quiet and rest during my recent trip across Sri Lanka. A large room in a very calm garden, itself surrounding a beautiful pool. More importantly still, Karen and all the staff make you feel extremely welcome. A wonderful three days in this highly recommended boutique hotel.

This was the best place we stayed in Sri Lanka. Karen, Rohan and their team were really welcoming and helpful without being pushy. They helped us not only while we stayed with them but also helped us arrange drivers for other parts of the trip and a safari in Yala. The food was excellent and very good value. The rooms...

Loved it. Summed up by me taking a video of the pool just so that I could later revisit the utter peace and tranquility of the gardens, and the tinkling of the pool. We stayed at Bentota and Tissa, and loved them both. Excellent meals, so glad we opted for breakfast and dinner option. The staff at both places were...

We wondered if this place would live up to its trip advisor reviews. It did and more! Raymond and the staff were fantastic, and Karen and Rohan so helpful in getting us transport from Galle to Bentota and then to the airport. Food was amazing, like having a personal chef! Nice walk to beach along country road, then loungers at...

No other word to describe this small villa complex other than paradise a real oasis. The Owner Karen who we met briefly has made this place just about perfect in every way. The rooms are huge modern & brightly furnished. The huge bathroom/shower rooms are to die for! The pool is simply beautiful as are the surrounding gardens. The food...

We stayed in this villa for 5 nights and then transferred across to their Tissa property. We had a great time in both. Both villas only have a small number of rooms (6 and 3 respectively) so you feel like you almost have the place to yourselves. The food was fantastic at both properties. I would recommend it if you...

My wife and I stayed at this villa for 1 night during our visit to Sri Lanka in May 2016. It was one of the nicest place we stayed in Sri Lanka. We were lucky it was the low season in May, so, there were no other guests at that time. Practically, we had the whole villa to ourselves. Location...

We stayed for 6 nights at Shangri-Lanka Villa, also using it as a base for a 5-day tour organised by the owners, Rohan and Karen. This is a small and charming hotel and very well run by the hard working Reymond and his team. The rooms are clean, large and bright. The attractive gardens and pool add to the relaxed...

From the moment I first contacted Karen until today as we end our 3 weeks in Karen and Rohan's care everything has been fantastic. This property is very special with great staff, delicious food, comfortable rooms, lovely pool and massages. Karen organised a tour for my husband and I and all went extremely well. Our driver Sisi spoke excellent English...

“At Bentota room 5 has wonderful early morning views across the rear gardens to the massage building. We also stayed in Room 2, and as it has a bath, it was our favourite. Nothing to differentiate between the Tissa accommodation, all 3 were excellent.”
