Welcome to Shangri-Lanka Villa

We are delighted to invite you to our home on the beautiful island of Sri Lanka.
Shangri La means 'earthly paradise'. Sri Lanka means 'resplendent land'. Together they make Shangri-Lanka, which to us simply means 'home'. Shangri-Lanka offers a holiday experience with a difference. No hotel receptions, no standard packages, no crowds of other guests, no time restrictions.
Just ourselves and our dogs welcome you to great hospitality and a genuinely personal service,
with all the facilities you need whenever you need them.
