This was our third visit to the guest house and yet again we had a fantastic time! In fact we liked it so much, we have already booked up our fourth visit! There have been some structural changes since last year and two extra rooms have been added in a separate block. If you are a return guest you do...

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...

This gem of a guest house lived up to every expectation and we can see why so many excellent ratings Karen and Rohan have been given.

If you like luxurious rooms with 16 sqm bathrooms and private terrasse situated in a British well-kept garden with a very nice pool and no visible neighbours, this is a guest-house for you to consider. The beach is 10-15 minutes walk away, and so is Bentota by tuk-tuk (200 roupies or 1,30 euro). The only "complaint" we have is the...

We loved our holiday at Shangri-Lanka. We had 5 days there and then 6 days on tour (which Karen and Rohan organised), before returning for another 5 days. Everything far exceeded our expectations. The rooms are luxurious, spacious and beautifully presented. We loved being able to have a cup of tea at any time - tea is delicious in Sri...
