Stayed end of jan 2012. 

Accommodation really spacious, photos on the website just do not do this place justice. Bathrooms enormous. Staff great, cannot do enough for you. They have thought carefully about everything guests need. Pool and gardens great too. Location is 5/10mins from the main road which runs very close to the beach. It is good to be away from the traffic noise.

We tried the masseuse who had a little cabin at the back of the garden. She is great and well worth it, in fact is so cheap compared to UK prices.

Food a highlight. Water, tea and coffee complimentary. Honesty bar for other drinks works really well. We had red snapper one night which was a 1.3kg whopper and cooked beautifully. Breakfasts also lovely, plenty of choice and all excellently prepared. Having it served on private balcony when we wanted it, was lovely.

We booked a tour through Karen and Rohan the owners. It was very well organised and they clearly have a lot of experience in this. Our driver was Hamar who was lovely and knew exactly the best places and routes to take.

Definitely worth it's high rating on this site and we would have no hesitation in recommending anyone to visit. This place is a little piece of paradise. Very good value for money. 

Room Tip: Any of the 4 rooms are great

Stayed for two weeks in January when we wanted some peace and quiet from a very busy home-based business. The view from room 3 is amazing, stretching over the marshland; felt as if we were living in the treetops. It is away from the main tourist area but a lovely 10-15 minute walk to the gorgeous beach. Perfect hosts and staff, so helpful. Currently planning a trip for next year to include some time at Shangri Lanka; see you all then I hope!

This guest house deserves its number 1 rating. Rooms are immaculate, staff and owners delightful, everything is good. Ideal for a couple or small group just to chill.

Karen and Rohan organised a fantastic holiday for us. We are a group of 3 well travelled married couples in our sixties visiting Sri Lanka for the first time.
We were met at the airport by Rohan who was our guide on a ten day tour which covered the major sites in the country and gave us a great understanding of the history of the country. Rohan was an encyclopedia of information. He was able to answer all but one of our questions about the vegetation, wildlife, history and way of life for the people. He stopped frequently for the enthusiastic photographer of our party (who took over 2000 photos) and was accommodating for our every request. Travelling as a small group we also had fun. All the 5 hotels we stayed in were of a good standard, and varied in character. We all agreed it was the best tour we had experienced. I would be happy to supply details via email.
The tour was followed by six nights at Shangri Lanka, Karen and Rohan's Villa. I can only echo the previous comments. Superb accommodation, personal service, great food and beautiful surroundings in which to relax.
Our expectations were high but they were exceeded.

Room Tip: Don't worry which room you have they are all excellent.

We recently sent an enquiry to Shangri-Lanka and were unfortunately told that they were fully booked (book a few months in advance!!!). However, Karen was so incredibly helpful in suggesting other options and providing advice on the local and wider area that I felt I just had to submit this review. We have travelled all over the world and I have to say I have never come across a hotel or guest house proprietor who was willing to spend so much time giving free (and incredibly useful!) advice to a non-customer. It is no wonder this guest house gets such amazing reviews with an owner like Karen. Shangri-Lanka is certainly on the top of our "must do" list next time we are in Sri Lanka!
