The peaceful, rural setting of this intimate and beautiful British–Sri Lankan guesthouse, a kilometre inland from the main road and beach, means at night you'll fall asleep to the sound of cicadas singing to the moon rather than honking buses. The rooms are enormous, with bright splashes of colour, and there's tasteful art on the walls.
The food and the service are as good as the accommodation, and the centrepiece of the garden is an immaculate pool. Brits will enjoy the beans on toast and bacon and sausages for breakfast.
Surrounded by greenery, Shangri-lanka Villa is just a 10-minute walk from Bentota Beach. It features an outdoor swimming pool, an Ayurveduc massage centre and rooms with free WiFi access.
