Rohan and karen were fantastic from the moment i contacted them, they organised a tour for the first half of our stay and allowed us to modify the itinerary as we went along and understood abit more about Sri Lanka! Rohan was our driver and guide and was the safest driver we experienced during our whole three week visit to the country. We visted Yala National Park and Ella and Hapatule in the hill country. Rohan's choice of hotel was excellent everytime. We have frineds who had stayed at Shangri Lanka villa and they had told us how nice it was, but we were still gobsmaked by the place. Fantastic rooms, pool and location. It is just far enough of the Galle-columbo coastal road to mean peace and tranquility but to allow a easy walk to the beach if you don't want to take advantage of the free tuk tuk rides. Karen and Rohan and all the staff were helpful, friendly and knew how to balance that with privacy for a honeymooning couple! We planned to eat out a couple of nights in and around bentota but the food that Karen and Rohan and their (very firendly and courteous staff) made us on the first night meant we ate at Shangri Lanka every night. In fact the Rice and Curry meals were the best we had in Sri Lanka and that is saying something! We had been married in Sri Lanka the week before our stay with Rohan and Karen but had not realised we needed our marriage certificate stamping by the foreign minister, Rohan saved us a lot of time and hassle by organising for a friend of his to take the paperwork to columbo for us, for a very reasonable fee. Our entire stay including all food, booze, tour and accomodation was very reasonably priced. All in all Shangri Lanka deserves all the brilliant reviews that it has got on TripAdvisor and we would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.
