Pros: beautiful garden, relaxing luxury
Cons: Nothing!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Brilliant service - spaciousrooms great food and Karen and her team went out of their way to make stay memorable.
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.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The property and standard of the accommodTion was excellent. The food was delicious, tasty and home cooked I couldn’t have asked for any better.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: We loved the pool & the doggies. The room was fabulous, spotlessly clean & comfortable. Karen & staff were perfect hosts - kind & honest. Thank you!
Cons: Nothing. Can't think of anything negative at all!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything - stunning location with gorgeously laid out gardens teaming with wildlife, superb attention to detail in rooms which are spacious and airy. Fabulous service, nice food , scrupulously clean, lovely doggies one of which was very vocal. We will be back next year for sure.
Cons: Nothing except don’t expect to ever have this property to yourself as the exceptional standard I am sure will mean it will be full 365 days of the year!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast, lunch and dinner were superbly cooked and presented. The Villa was large with a super bathroom. The pool is lovely and kept very clean. 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.
7.5 Good
Pros: My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights after having visited Kandy and the South Coast in the previous 10 days. We liked the room which was very spacious and the large garden and pool of the villa. The room furniture and decor were estethically pleasing. Wifi is great in the room.
Cons: we have found some areas in this place that need improvement and for that reason we are not going to give our highest rating: 1. the staff personality and friendliness scores low here. This place lacks a good welcoming host. The staff are just doing their job and they don’t seem to be that friendly or that happy to have you as a guest. Hard to see a smile from them and after having spent time in this country and having experienced the friendliness and kindness of other lower class hotels staff we stayed in Sri Lanka, this villa is definitely lacking that. 2. The most senior member of the staff was very pushy with wanting us to use their own tuk tuk driver all times rather than the locals. He would also speak badly of the local tuk tuk drivers and when we told him that we already had organised tuk tuk pick ups with somebody else he was clearly not impressed. They want to make sure you spend the money with them. When we also asked him to give us a quote for car transport and after we had his price and told him we had a better price from a local, he quickly said that the local driver mustn’t have any insurance. Again this was his arrogant and disingenuous assumption to try and stir us away from using other people services. 3. The food prices are average here. However their light breakfast which they charge you for (almost 5GBP) consists of a small plate of fruit, toast and jam and nescafe’ coffee. We had much more luxurious breakfast in other lower level accommodation in Sri Lanka which even included omelette, real filter coffee and a very generous plate of fruit, and that kind of breakfast came for free as part of the room price. It would have been a nice touch if they included the light breakfast in the room price as for what it is, I’m sure it wouldn’t be a loss for them. 4. One of the “clean” towels had large stain of bloods which looked very much from a woman’s period. When we asked the staff to change it, they played it all down without apologies

Cons: We had 3 great rooms, in one of the rooms shower was not really very new but
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We couldn't ask for more. The place is fantastic with great facilities, beach 1 minute walking, pool, great food and more. The installations are clean and pristine, decorated with very good taste. The staff was awesome, very friendly, professional and efficient and that is a priceless asset. The way that ALL the staff performed their duties exceed anything I we were expecting. For example, we planned to go to the World Heritage Sigiriya and was necessary to leave the facilities at 04:00am in order to get there around 09:00 but that meant to miss the breakfast on that day. As soon as our plans were known, Mishara, a staff member, organized the preparation of two breakfast packs to be ready for us in the morning to take on the journey. Pro-activity and a job well done at its best. A word of appreciation for a great job as well for Chaminda at the reception and to Numesh and Sanjeewa and for all the great people with no exception working there. A big thanks very much.
Cons: To leave.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: A delightful boutique property, beautifully appointed. It was wonderful to be so close to such a magnificent stretch of beach and still have the option of 2 lovely swimming pools. The grounds are plush, large and relaxing. (The train line that runs behind the property was really quite a thrill - waving to the passengers as they trundled past.) The staff were most accommodating and the dining options were superb. Very happy to recommend this property.
Cons: It was a terrible shame that so many people had decided to cancel their bookings because of the recent unrest. We spent 3 weeks in Sri Lanka and at no time did we feel threatened or unsafe. Please consider travelling to Sri Lanka.
6.7 Good
Cons: Service was a little haphazard. Our ac kept cutting off for a while in the afternoon. It was eventually fixed. We ordered some room service and the dishes were not cleared, there was no turndown service and when we returned to room late in the night the plates were still there

Pros: The property is really beautiful with lots of different seating areas and the Paradise Road interior design style throughout. I loved the main pool!.

Security, gardeners, housekeeping, reception and restaurant staff were all very friendly and really attentive.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: It’s a great hideaway in Bentota. Good clean rooms. The staff is also very helpfull.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Absolute must, upon entering, you get an explanation of the influence of Geoffrey Bawa, the architect who also determines was at our previous hotel Marissa Hills. Spacious layout and a lot of art makes you feel in a museum rather than a hotel. Room, restaurant and swimming pools. The whole outdoor happen to the last detail with the beautiful white beach to cap it. A must if you are in this area.
Cons: Nothing not to like

Pros: The stay at your bungalow was really amazing. Your family was so friendly, kind and let me feel like a familymember. I only booked with breakfast. But when you first cooked for us it was like a tastexplosion - really really good. Thanks for giving me the chance to try your cooking! The location by itself I think can't be better.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Calm and quite , 3 minutes walk to beach ,
Cons: Some staff mainly room service guys a bit awkward in response , bath kit not refilled for 2 days . Beach side Some chair or recliners should have been placed by hotel as that’s USP .
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The property is beautiful, both the building and the grounds. We had an enormous bed and a private courtyard area that opened onto the main garden/pool. Lovely mature trees and colourful flowers. The train line runs across the end of the garden and you walk over that straight onto the quiet beach. It was entertaining to watch the train chug along the single track as you lay by the pool. They aren't very frequent so are not disturbing. Staff very attentive. Pool towels carefully folded with flowers, and extras brought without being asked. A dish of nuts brought when it was noticed we were having a beer from the mini bar on our patio.
Cons: Location is fairly remote so not for long stays unless you just want to relax by the beach and pool.

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

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very nice boat trip and lovely night sleeping on the boat
Cons: Good Dinner but too expensive and Booking.com says it’s included in the price which afterwards we had to pay extra 25$ per person
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.
8.8 Excellent

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

8.3 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is in a good location set just back from the beautiful Bentota beach with its huge sweep of golden sand. It is low rise and comfortable, with a large pool. I may say that in the general facilities are quite good. In its earlier years this hotel must have been truly a 5* hotel. You can imagine its days of glory. Now 5* are overrated. It's no luxury here and the hotel needs a complete overhaul. The stuff is the only one who is 5*: very helpful and kind. Although we checked out at 12, they let us linger 3 hours more at the pool( our train to Colombo arrived at 3.40) and we were given towels and beach beds. It was very nice taking into consideration that on our arrival day we could not enjoy the pool entirely because of some kind of "event". Also we were welcomed with cold drinks. The breakfast was very good too but I only ate fresh, on the spot made food: delicious egg hoppers ( you should try it), omelette and gaufre. I'll give that to this hotel. WIFI is very good and the bed very comfortable.
Cons: We had a basic room booked last minute but still even a basic room in a 5* should be impeccable. Our room reflected a lack of maintenance. The room was clean but the bathroom not so much. No complimentary water in the room. I don't want freebies but our minibar was empty too and I was thirsty. Also we arrived during the weekend and an 'event' was held outside the hotel witch lasted almost all afternoon and was incredibly loud. I was told by reception that during weekend many locals come to enjoy here. I do not have a problem if they behave properly. But they took up the entire pool, bumping and tossing so I could swim only after they left. Some people entered the water with their travelling clothes on although you should shower before entering the pool or if your religion says otherwise at least to slip into new cleaned clothes before entering the pool.

Pros: Excellent rooms, room service and very nice staff. Breakfast was good too. Love the property !
Cons: The pool area could have been arranged better for relaxing outside. Could have more facilities for play. Better tea and coffee needed.
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing to like. Hotel is beyond economicall repair. AC unit is split type and temperature want go below 23.5c / noisy. U can hear the train everytime it passes behind the Hotel. Hotel allows locals to access pool for small price unfortunately it cramps the pool and reciption. Rooms balcony has no privacy. Technically you are sitting with 2 neighbors. Hotel should not be rated more than 2 stars
Cons: path room. Busy breakfast with no international food verity and 10:30am you would be lucky to find something to eat

Breakfast and the dinner served is really good and reasonable too. And the wife really works well as I could not even notice buffering while browsing n is at good speed. And u hv companion to play well with n his name is browny... I would highly recommend this place...
Cons: There is nothing to mention here
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!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was amazing, the host is ready to cook good food for you. Quiet location.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The owner was nice and helpful. I liked the quietness of the place, the area was peaceful. It was nice to be able to rent a bike to go to the city and the beach. The breakfast was good, one of the best omelette I had in Srilanka.
Cons: It could be great to add a few things to improve the bathroom and the kitchen area.

Pros: The pool was awesome and the beach too. Breakfast was good.
Cons: After I checked out I was told that there was a towel that was dirty and can't be cleaned so I have to pay 3$ and this is what I remember of my experience with the Hotel. I think the hotel staff need to be trained how to deal with people better.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very clean, lovely resort, good spacious rooms, pool was delightful, and staff were quick to put down the towels and mattresses for the sun beds. Food was good.
Cons: Food inside the resort was expensive, although good. People would try to sell you things from the road whilst you’re at the pool, not the hotels fault, but something to note, as soon as they see you leave the hotel to go to the beach, they are behind you like wild fire trying to sell
6.3 Good
Pros: Location of the property
Cons: The service was below the standard that we expected. The breakfast was ok but the other restaurants at the property are not serviced properly. The kitchen was taking too much time to prepare our meals and some of the staff were not helpful. Would definitely suggest having your meals outside the property.

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.
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.
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.
5.4 Okay
Pros: It had a swimming pool
Cons: The staff were not polite and made us feel uncomfortable. We were traveling as a big group. They canceled one of our rooms without advising us. They refused to clean the bath room after 1 day stating they only did it every 3 days. There weren't enough towels in the room. Refused to give the kids breakfast since we ordered at 10 and last orders were at 10. The place is decent, the road to get there is a bit remote but we had a van so it was fine. Mainly the owner had a really bad attitude and left us who are fun. Loving group with a sour taste in our mouth.
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
Cons: WiFi was slower than a snail Swimming pool did not look fresh enough to swim in but got got better as the stay went on but that was too late and I avoided it No fridge in room

5.0 Okay
Pros: The staff here were excellent. Very friendly and we enjoyed their company.
Cons: Quite cooped up and even though they said daily maid service we didn’t have anyone clean our rooms during our 2 night stay. There’s no fridge or kettle in the room and I would have liked the basics at least.. no hair dryer or iron either which was disappointing and we didn’t get sheets to cover up on a couple of the beds... quite a distance from the beach about a 15 minute drive or 45 minute walk so not very convenient and we had to wait forever for a vehicle to take us in to the main beach strip.

Pros: Staff was good. Good breakfast and comfortable and clean rooms

Pros: The swimming pool is very nice, although it’s too shallow. The location right in front at the beach is also excellent.
Cons: The smell of humidity in the rooms, the minibar was empty, the “cinema” was not working, the blankets were old and broken and the shower didn’t have a good hot water supply. That is not what you expect of a 5stars hotel.
4.6 Okay
Pros: Location was great, entire experience was poor - service standards is way below Lankan standards
Cons: Staff have forgotten to smile, Spoilt fruit, old bacon & old muffins, croissants served for breakfast. On pointing this to mr.sampath the restaurant manager, he said he’s only the manager, food falls in the chef section. It feels like they either don’t like this business, you struggle to see a nice approach, food portions ala carte is very small
9.6 Excellent
Pros: It made us feel like home. The view of the beach and pool from the room was breathtaking.
Cons: There should be more activities and games in the hotel. If there are kids around they may tend to get bored.
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: Overrated Hotel! The rooms were not clean. There were no sleepers inside the room and no toothbrush. Upon calling room service a couple of times, we were still not given the items. It was a nightmare to stay at this hotel. The only positive thing here was the beach view 'only if you get a chance to live in a beach facing room'.

7.1 Good

5.0 Okay
Pros: The Beach was nice , we could walk around to other restaurants on the Beach in the near vicinity. There was nothing great and about the resort .
Cons: It seemed that Resort had staff shortage or cost cutting measures in place. There was no one on recpetion after 10 PM . The Pool Boy was a very rude person . My wife sat on a beach bed which was prepared with a cushion and towel . as a Hotelier myself , my wife has seen several hotels and knows that all good hotels prepare beach beds in the morning and put reserved signages on the ones which are already assigned. There was no sign on this one. The Pool Boy called he with loud and rude voice , almost insulting her in front of other guests . it was not expected in sri lanka as our experience in all other properties was more then 120% good. The Swimming pool throughout sri lanka closes at 10 PM , but in this Resort it closed at 7.30 Pm , The Beach bed cushiosn were removed at 6 PM , The whole swimming pool and garden area was dark with no lights at all , making it look dead. may be if managment lights it up with some light music and keep pool open till 10 pm they would make more revenue on beverage sales itself. The staff had no proper training , they gave me wrong opening hours of the spa. some staff had problems in speaking english . The breakfast was almost cold (even the hot items) . The spa was just two rooms with bed , the massage in itself was ok. The staff was showing an open Bias towards western Long staying guests . instead of us short stay asians. some staff were nice and smiled when ever we met them. Overall , I would not suggest to go there if you are not used to such properties . and its not for familes with Kids.

Cons: The food selection on the buffet was very limited, the food was not nice at all. Too much spicy food, meat was mostly fat, pasta was overcooked and too soft and not a lot of options. The breakfast was terrible. We ended up going back to our room and just ordering room service continental breakfast. The pools are not very welcoming as the colour of the pool tiles look dirty so we didn't use the pools.

Worst accommodation experience we have ever had! Would highly recommend to stay elsewhere.

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.

Staff were very helpful and friendly.
Cons: i didn't have breakfast as it was $8 which compared to other hotels and places we stayed in sri lanka was a little over priced.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location...staff....pool and rooms all excellent
Cons: Pretty perfect
