A fusion of contemporary and tradition

Shinagawa Beach is a modern 26 room boutique hotel designed to take in breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean from its bedrooms and public spaces. Surround by tropical greenery and in a secluded bay in Balapitiya, this stunning beachfront property is ideal for those wanting a tranquil and secluded stay, although bustling cites of Galle and Colombo, and the more well known resort of Bentota are within easy reach.

As you enter through the main reception and step out to the central courtyard you are greeted with a lengthy swimming pool looking out to the gardens and the ocean beyond. Spend your days relaxing on the sun-kissed beaches come evening witness the spectacular sunsets and indulge in a romantic candle lit dinners by the sea.

Nice little hotel for the second time

We were already for the second time in Shinagawa, this should actually speak for itself. As usual the service in the hotel was really great. All staff were very well taken care of the guests. Our special thanks goes to the two ladies of the spa, here were given us very nice and relaxing hours. Sure it is a little more expensive than in the area, but we had very short ways and a partner massage was possible. The rooms were very clean and cleaned twice a day. Minor complaints were settled within a day. The kitchen deserves an excellent judgment, because our booked half board was always varied. We especially loved the local (spicy) cuisine. The prices of the cocktails are on European level, but corresponded to most other local providers. With water, Coke or regional beer the prices are ok. A big problem of the hotel should not be left unnoticed. However, according to our experience, this does not only apply to this hotel. We're talking about the beach boys here: These have become extremely intrusive compared to 2016 and probably have mafiosi-like structures. Partly we had six beach boys and three sellers we had 6 guests, who were on the beach. Also, taxi and TukTuk drivers were intimidated who wanted to pick up passengers at the hotel. They were told that this is the beach section of this beachbay and they have control over all trips and excursions. Unfortunately, this was only part of the actions. Because we were also able to observe how these beach boys filmed guests on the leagues and looked into the rooms or the reception to see which guests are arriving again. In our opinion, this is an absurd no-go. Unfortunately, the comments on the beach boys already in older reviews, without any improvement is apparent. Therefore, our recommendation: who has no problems with the permanent siege with the beach boys and a nice little hotel appreciates, it can book without hesitation. But who wants to have his privacy and peace, seeks better an alternative.

Best place to relax

Moratuwa, Sri Lanka

We came for a day outing. They offerd us a day room with a reasonable price and the location was awesome. We needed the privacy. I have been here twice before and i would recommend it to anyone who wishes to spend some quality time. Food was amazing and the staff was very friendly. Keep up the good work and service.
