This was our second time at Shangri Lanka. It was the first place we stayed at on our first visit to Sri Lanka in November 2012 and we said then that we would return. We did for 6 nights in February 2014. The food cooked by Rohan the Chef and staff is wonderful and although it was tempting to go out and try different Restaurants, we only did this once as we wanted to try as many dishes as we could from Shangri Lanka's menu! It is amazing how a small team can prepare such a variety of high standard fresh food. I would recommend the grilled Prawns. The service and presentation is outstanding too. Our room was immaculate as always with every small detail down to fresh flowers on the bed. It is so spacious and comfortable that you just don't want to leave! We enjoyed having massage treatments by the pool by Kumari too, she is very good. We love the location, the village setting means that there are many different beautiful Birds in the garden and the sound of Crickets and Frogs in the evening is amazing. It is a treat to sit on the balcony first thing and watch the colourful birds flying around. It is lovely to walk down the lane in both directions, to the beach one way and through the village past a pretty backwater the other. In addition to being a beautiful place, there is just something about Shangri Lanka that makes you sad to leave and want to return. We think that it is the kindness and friendliness of Karen, Rohan and Reymond and all the people that work there. Oh and and of course Bobby and Maisie, the 2 pet Dogs!
