There can be a confusion of two places when they exist in the same premises as with hotel Castelo and Shangri la guest house in Kandy. These are like two adjoining houses where they have the same main entrance and the same path way leading to both houses.The sign boards of
both places are not indicating the directions clear enough.
During our stay in Shangri la some tourists came to Shangri la during the breakfast time complaining to the owners about this confusing situation.They had stayed In Castelo the previous night thinking it was Castelo.We patronized the restaurent of Castelo several times since it was just next door.Both places are good but completely two different concepts trying to cater to a different clientele.
When I was going through certain reviews I had the impression the same confusions happens again and again. For example Shangri la does n t have receptionists and they never have any personnel trying to sell anything to guests. We always appreciated there attentive but discrete service and attitude.They are not imposing or insisting in any way.
This year the Kandy Perehera will take place from 1 st to 10 th August. Every year there is this confusion of dates about Perehera too. Our friends had found this information during room reservations.. .

Room Tip: All together they have 7 family rooms including new Eco Lodges.

My family friends who stayed in Kandy last month during Esala Procession had stayed in the eco lodges built recently at the yoga center of shangri la.There are 3 eco lodges and each can accommodate up to 4 people.Built on a large spice estate it is only 10 minutes from the Kandy town.Eco lodges are simple but original and unique.A new experience for travelers to try where nature is at it s best..

Room Tip: The widows of all the rooms give a view of the spice estate..

We stayed only one night but we really enjoyed.
The house is beautifully decorated and the owner is very helpful.
Also, the guest house is ideally situated. Close from city centre and Tooth Temple.
I highly recommend this place for your stay in Kandy

When we travel we often see the reviews of other travellers.Most of the time we have taken these reviews and have been lucky with our choices.With all respect to other peoples good or bad reviews of the same places I wish to give my general impression on these comments.It is rare that we forget to write about bad experiences and at the same time we forget most of the times to write about our good experiances,
Reviews about Shangri la is one such example to me.I stayed with my family at Shangri la in 2010 and 2012(they had three big family rooms with extra large beds) and it always was a beautiful experience for us and our children.I want to say that Shangri la was not the only good guest house we found in Sri Lanka, but very sincerely nothing was like Shangrila in many ways.

Room Tip: room no.5 out side the main house is more spacious than the rest.
