Pros: beautiful garden, relaxing luxury
Cons: Nothing!
8.3 Excellent
Cons: There was an incident that really shocked us! We arranged a driver from another hotel to pick us from shangri lanka to his stay. The owner of shangri lanka threatened the driver to hit him and damage his car, if he would pick us up from shangri lanka! As customers we cannot accept such unprofessional behaviour, thats why we wouldn't recommend this place.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: In a scenic, quiet location Spacious rooms Lovely pool Helpful staff organising fair priced tuk tuks Information pack in the room Reasonably priced Ayurvedic treatments
Cons: I like a sheet/duvet a little thicker on the bed. It’s very thin and though the AC is needed (otherwise it’s too hot), I woke up too cold a couple of times. Perhaps an extra blanket or thin duvet could be put in the room for those who need it. As we wake up around 6am, we weren’t able to have tea or coffee until after 7 when the staff arrive. It would be nice to have a kettle in the room.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The suite was huge and luxurious. The room had numerous art pieces that makes it unique. The bed and the sheets were extremely comfortable. The bathroom had a large bath. There is a lovely pool in the gardens with sunlounges and unmbrellas. The chef serves excellent food. Prem was there to assist with meals and anything else you require. Thank you. Hope to return one day.
Cons: Nothing. Everything perfect.

The area around is very safe and staff will organise whatever transport you require. From the moment we arrived the staff were all very respectful but also very helpful.
Cons: The sunbed area around the pool could do with improving, grass around the sunbeds very sparce in areas and looks unappealing. Also the pool towels could do with upgrading, very clean but some seem sun lotion stained.

Pros: The view from my balcony was phenomenal. My room was spacious and cozy.
Cons: I had an Ayurvedic body massage there but the therapist was sexually harassing me that he tried to go down on me.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Located in a quiet lane which has many other luxury villas. This had a very colonial feel , right from the moment we stepped in. We were welcomed with a glass of fresh papaya juice. Welcoming staff, especially Chaman who helped us find a good local taxi driver. All other staff people were very courteous & wanting to serve us well. And always with a smile on their faces. The room.... superb! Honestly, I didn’t expect it to turn out so good! It was huge!! With an added floor which had a kids bed. The bed was good & the chairs overlooking the garden were perfect for sipping ur Ceylon tea while doing nothing! The Sri Lankan food was very good; must try. You need to tell them a night before if u wish to have SL breakfast. The beach was just across the villa gardens. Only adventure was the railway line which u need to cross to reach to the beach. But the beach was good with not many people. I enjoyed my evening walks with my wife watching a lovely sunset. Lastly, A GREAT PLACE TO UNWIND AWAY FROM THE CITY CHAOS!!
Cons: I guess the bathroom needs to be updated a bit. Though kept very clean, just feels a little worn out! And the positioning of air con in the room. In the afternoon, It takes a long time to cool the room.

Pros: The staff was friendly. The breakfast spread was delicious. The room was clean

Pros: Nice beachside resort. Overwhelmed by their gesture to upgrade our room from Garden facing Twin Bed to Sea facing King Size bed. Whole lot of activities to do. We stayed there for 2 nights. We did not feel the need to go outside the resort. We enjoyed beachside, swimming pool, steam, table tennis, etc. Rooms are spacious with sea view balcony.
Cons: Jiva Spa. Too expensive for the worth. Staff not motivated enough to deliver customer satisfaction. Inspite of telling the therapist to increase the pressure, he continued with lesser pressure for his comfort. We had to remind them for the post therapy drink which the therapist missed to offer.

The beach was nice with clean sand and not crowded. Highly recommend this place.
Cons: We would have liked more traditional food on the menu, too much continental options. A small drying rack in every room would be practical.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was very friendly and hospitable. The room was very big and neat with a big balcony with a good view on the pool and the lake. We were invited to have a look in the kitchen when the chef was preparing our Sri Lankan curry's. He explained the whole process and we tasted everything. The curries were delicious. The next day, the hotel staff took us on their private boat for a tour through the mangroves and bentota lake during sunset. It was a fun and absolutely stunning trip.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Ambience, breakfast
Cons: Cruise / without cruise -- option was not known. Payment deduction through card/ cash was a mystery till last minute. The full day program was not communicated.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Excellent service by staff. Well behaved, well trained, and extremely courteous staff. Beautiful cruise. Cruise will simply take your breath away. Rooms are spacious for a houseboat and are clean. Rooms are 24*7 Air conditioned even when cruising. Stunning scenery. Overall value for money.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Had a great experience on board the houseboat. Great views and excellent food. Highly recommended for anyone looking to stay somewhere a little different!
Cons: Nothing that we didn't like!
7.9 Good
Pros: The whole concept was amazing. Peacefull and quiet. Perfect for a romantic weekend getaway. I recommend booking both rooms of the boat so that you can have complete privacy. It should be good for fishing enthusiasts as well.
Cons: The junior staff was ok, they should learn not to interfere during dinner. A senior staff member was trying to hoodwink me into paying for a cruise that was already booked by the other couple. He told me that we would be confined to our room during the cruise if we didn't pay this extra charge, which was not acceptable as I rightly pointed out that we had paid to use not only the room but all other common areas for the duration of our stay. Needless to say, this interaction led to diminish the overall experience of the trip as I had to get into arguments in my leisure time.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: A truly magical experience. Words are not enough! The houseboat, the location, the food, the Captain and his crew truly fabulous. I travelled for 3 weeks in Sri Lanka, and this was the highlight. The captain helped with excursions and all my travel arrangements, providing transport whenever required. Morning and evening cruises were truly awesome, with nothing but the sound of nature (the houseboat has almost soundless engines). An experience I will never forget, and I will return! Do not miss a visit to Geoffrey Bawa's country estate "Lunuganga", and Bevis Bawa's "Brief Garden". Great empty beaches 10 minutes away by Tuk Tuk.
Cons: Nothing could have improved my stay, it was perfect!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The location was super good. Rooms are also very beautiful and clean. It is one of the best place to stay for a day. Bit costly so when you tired and wanted to rest in your trip then this is the best and romantic stay in Srilanka
Cons: No reason

7.1 Good
Pros: The owner, she nice and want to help you Breakfast was good and the dinner cheap and good You can rent a bike Good place to stay with a small budget
7.9 Good
Pros: Grace the host was very helpful & accomodating. The room is basic but was clean and has everything you need, including a fridge which was a great addition. We had a local cuisine and a Western breakfast there— both were tasty and ready at the time we requested. There is a nice garden/ patio area to spend time in and the neighborhood is quiet and beautiful to walk through.
Cons: A little removed from the beaches and other sights to see... but still walkable within ~20-30min or an easy tuk-tuk ride. The buses also come frequently along the main road. Note: this is a guesthouse where a family, including a child, also lives, so there is some extra noise. It didn’t bother us- we know to expect that when you’re booking a Homestay & enjoyed getting to know the family- but if you’re not wanting that, perhaps better to look somewhere else!

7.9 Good
Pros: The pools and gardens were stunning and very clean. The buffet breakfast was ok but a lot of the food was very foreign to us, therefore the kids didn’t get value for money as they lived on fries. The staff made up the rooms beautifully every morning and the balconies had a gorgeous view of a clean beach. It was a little disappointing that the a la carte restaurant was closed during our stay and there was a lack of evening entertainment. Otherwise the staff were friendly and helpful. Chatters bar has a good choice of cocktails.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: We had a great stay here! It’s an amazing resort, right on the beach with a lovely garden/pool area (it actually has 2 pools). It was my husband’s birthday and they went to lots of effort such as giving us some extras in our room and arranging a cake and for the staff to sing happy birthday. We had a lovely 2 nights here at the end of our stay in Sri Lanka and it was so relaxing. I’d recommend this place to anyone :)
10.0 Excellent

6.7 Good
Pros: Location was perfect with good facilities.
Cons: Hotel junior Staff is not co-operative, they didn't know how to deal with customers. We booked hotel for 4 person but later on a friend of us came with us so we asked they for a extra room, which they told us not available. They we asked for a extra Bed which was also not available..Shocking. Even though we told them we will pay for 5th person but still they didn't accommodate us and told our friend to leave hotel in 10 mins. And when he went with to room, they send Security guards to our room to take him out. well all this fuss was created by receptionist. Anyhow later on , duty manger came to resolve this issue by not letting our friend out in 10 mins. And in morning hotel GM visited us & apologize for all the fuss done last night. which is a professional way to Deal with Customers in hospitality sector.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location and resort, the food was amazing, but what made it special was the friendly staff
7.9 Good
Pros: Big, nice, clean room.
Cons: Hotel is quite nice but some places need reservations.
6.3 Good
Pros: The staff is absolutely amazing. They’re so friendly and helpful. Nalim is definitely one of the best waiters!!! The BBQ on the beach and million dollar view special dinner are an absolute must do. Breakfast in the morning is good!
Cons: The gym is an absolute joke. I think it s a NO go for staff to have breakfast at the same place as guests. It s not professional at all and I’ve seen it happening every morning all over again. The waiting time for food at the pool bar is to long. And when the food arrives it s cold. The ladies in the SPA are not professional masseuses. Was very disappointing. Very loud housekeeping staff every morning. Asked them a couple of times to keep it down. Did not see a change in that.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: The property is beautiful with really well kept gardens and a nice swimming pool to enjoy. The room was very clean, good facilities, great shower and very comfy bed. Location is also very good, not far from the beach and restaurants. It’s in a remote area which is great if you like peace and quiet.
Cons: The WiFi was pretty poor to be honest, it got slightly better towards the end of our stay. I have to say I got a weird vibe from the place, the staff were nice but seemed oddly nerved. The owner seemed nice when we arrived but after we told him we didn’t want to rent a bike for 1,700 p/d (v. Expensive for Sri Lanka) and we didn’t want the breakfast ($7 p/p, again v. Expensive! I paid just $4 for two people down on the main road) he seemed not be too pleased. When we checked out I said thank you to all the female staff and he didn’t even say goodbye or thank you. Anyway, great place overall! Highly recommend and the room is great value for money.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Hotel staff very friendly and welcoming the rooms and resort is spotlessly clean to a high standard all in all a very nice place to place stay would highly recommend
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The rooms were great. The beds really comfortable. We hade the pool right outside the door. The food was good too. The best thing was the staf. They were really friendly and helped us whit everything we needed and gave advise.
Cons: There wasn't anything I didn't like really. If I must say anything it is that is like 10 min by tuk-tuk to the beach but we already knew that when we booked.
7.5 Good
Pros: The owner was very attentive. The owners wife was very helpful. The breakfast was good.And a comfortable place to stay. We had great time there. Recommend this place for couples and families.
Cons: The staff must be more dedicated to the job. The barbique service will be much expensive, we were charged 4500lkr for 5marinated fishes. We have booked a apartment and didn't had our apartment. And extra minus point is even they were charged same price for only 3 peoples and we had pay another extra charge for 4 people. Which was overcharged some how at the end of the day. We saw this after we check out. Even they gave us 5 packs rooms and we already payed 19889lkr for only for 3 people they asked another extra 5000 again for the extra 2 people. we already payed for 5pack apartment with a kitchenette . And just got this 2 other deluxe rooms. Reservations must be updated.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The nice and lushious garden and house, spacious room and very friendly staff, arranged extra bed and later check out for us. Very calm and green surroundings. Excellent breakfast! Thanks for having us!
Cons: The location is a bit far, but no problem with tuktuk or scooter.
7.5 Good
Pros: Decent rooms, far from the beach (but that's something that you anyways see when you decide to make the booking). Good breakfast and most of the staff were really nice.
Cons: - The only place in Sri Lanka which asked us to take a full meal when we asked if we could have a small bowl of rice and curd for our 1year old toddler. At some places they gave it as complimentary, at other places they charged us, but nowhere anyone said no and asked to take full-meal instead when the requirement was just a bowl for a kid !! But anyways that's not a complaint as they were well within their right to say so but this certainly doesn't come under good hospitality that we had come to see all across our stay in Sri Lanka. - The initial room that was allocated was a completely different one from the one booked online. Not sure if that was intentional or a genuine error from booking.com/hotel, but was however resolved in some time.
7.9 Good
Pros: Accommodation was clean and comfortable Staff were first class Breakfast was excellent Grounds were lovely well maintained with plenty of seating areas including an excellent balcony area

We then were woken up at about 9:30pm to loud banging on our front door a staff member demanding we come to reception now to pay our bill which we had already signed to add on to the room charge. Worst accommodation experience we have ever had! Would highly recommend to stay elsewhere.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Fantastic pool and good food but what stood out was the incredible staff-particularly Raymond. We managed to leave a piece of art on a bus from Galle to Bentota but to our delight and total disbelief they managed to get it back for us. Throughout our stay the staff couldn’t do enough to help. Lovely clean room and good value.
Cons: There is a 10 minute walk to the beach which didn’t bother us but something to be aware of.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great friendly accomodating staff, I felt very welcomed with flexible check in/out time, payment method, room and food requests. I had a fantastic stay-my only regret is that I could not stay longer. Room was big and spacious with beautiful view over pool and lush green backyard-plenty of wildlife. A few minutes walk from the beach, house is on the main road by is settled at the back of the property so don't hear traffic-bonus if wanting to get a bus to Colombo or Airport get it directly outside property gates, otherwise train station just around the corner. Great breakfast and must try the devilled chicken for dinner. Thank you for a fantastic stay :)

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Staff couldn’t be more helpful & friendly & went out of their way to cater for our every need. Restaurant was super, the food exceeded expectations & the waiters and chef were always attentive - the Sri Lankan curry was out of this world. The hotel tuk-tuk driver - Sisi - was full of great suggestions on what to see & do locally & was incredibly good value.
Cons: The sea (which is just over the railway track) was too rough to swim in, our fault for booking out of season
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Huge rooms with Lofty ceilings, biG balcony, but unclear sea view. the sound of waves was soothing though. Two min walk to beach. fairly clean rooms.
Cons: No proper staff to attend late night. Hot water takes long time to come out of tap / shower. Half of my family mistook it for total disruption of hot water supply & had to bath in shivering cold water. THAT WAS REALLY BAD. PROPERTY OWNER MUST TAKE SERIOUS NOTICE. Not much veriety in food. Restaurant not so great.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Staff were so helpful especially as the airline delayed our bags and they helped us get hold of them again. Staff were attentive and wanted to help at every opportunity.
Cons: Food was slightly overpriced
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great location right on the beach. Food was fantastic - I would recommend the special Sri Lankan curry (seven dishes plus rice) - excellent value. Also you must try the wunderbar cocktail. The staff were very attentive.
Cons: The rooms were basic but clean. However when you’re in this location, you won’t want to spend long in your room anyway. There is a train line running all along the coast. It runs between the hotel and the beach. We thought that this added to the hotel’s character, and it was fun to see the trains pass. However light sleepers may find them noisy. First night the trains woke me but after that no problem.
