Nothing can do justice to the welcome and surroundings that greeted us when we first arrived at Shangri Lanka Villa. We stayed in the top Villa of which was exquisitely furnished and decorated in Sri Lankan colours and art. Our balcony overlooked the garden, pool and best of all “the jungle tree tops”. Whilst taking breakfast ‘on the balcony'!! we watched the monkeys swing by, chipmunks, paradise birds, hornbills, humming birds, geckos, fruit bats and not forgetting Bobby & Maisy (the house dogs) who took a liking to ginger nut biscuits!
The lane to the beach (10mins) was a safari in itself – water buffalo, mongoose, water monitors, herons and a variety of exotic birds.
We spent 3 amazing weeks at the villa - eating in most nights - a combination of excellent seafood, fresh fish, sir Lankan curries and roast sucking pig - washed down with a couple of bottle of white wine! – as the reviews say – you’ll not eat better elsewhere.
Rohan, Karen and the boys work 24/7 and give 110% to deliver a personalised service that is second to none – we’ll be back for Jan 2011 to celebrate a couple of big 50 birthdays !! Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday.
