Stunning place
Reviewed 1 week ago

Best beach hotel that I have been to.
Room was a little tired but spotlessly clean and we did not spend much time in it.
The grounds were beautiful, it was set in a quiet cove with a sand beach.
There were a few locals around but they did not get in the way.
The food was excellent, we went all inclusive and there was a buffet breakfast with a chef cooking fresh eggs as requested and a different la carte menu to choose from for lunch and dinner. There was also a BBQ night that was great. Live music a couple of times while we were there.
Great cocktail bar, with loads of fresh fruit cocktails.
Staff were fantastic, very attentive.
Felt like were in our own little bit of paradise.

Could do better
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

The location of this hotel on a beautiful unspoiled beach is perfect for end of vacation relaxing. However, the food and service do not meet the requirements of a luxury hotel. Our room was clean, and large ... albeit a little bare. Looked as if a piece of furniture was missing. Toilet seat was broken. TV wouldn't switch on... then on the last night wouldn't switch off. We slept with it still on, having lost the will to live. Towels were off white and threadbare. Indeed one ripped in half on use.
Bar was very cold and soulless, chairs uncomfortable, and the noise of the crushed ice machine for cocktails was deafening.
Worst of all was restaurant service. Not sure the average age of the waiters.... they looked very young... maybe not even 16, and they were trying hard but failing. Self service days were much better.
Having said that, the potential of this hotel is huge. They need to consider changing some of the furniture e.g. Bar. Making more of an impressive entrance, where a sitting area has cheap drab furniture, not in keeping with the size of the space. Training the staff for courteous service, not obsequious.

Just came back from our fortnight holiday in Sri Lanka. very positively surprised by the culture and people of Sri Lanka!
Many thanks to Jet Wings Tour operator - perfect services in every aspect!
Perfectly chosen hotels en route - Jet Wings Beach, Jet Wings Lake - we only regretted we didn't have a few more days at the Jet Wings Lake:)
Shinagawa Beach by Asia Leisure is a really small hotels, which makes you feel at home!
On behalf of my co- travelers and my own behalf, I would like to express their and my gratitude for their attitude and services provided during our 9- days stay at this property!
The hotel has a really perfect location - you step out of the hotel and you are directly on the beach. Plenty of staff to help and assist! Very clean premises, very good services as a whole!
We stayed on all inclusive plan of catering, and we were absolutely happy with the food and drinks! My only remark concerns the a-la-carte prices of drinks, which could eventually discourage guests on BB or HB board, because prices seem somehow higher, if compared with other hotels of same category.

Thanks to the GM of the Shinagawa beach for assisting and supporting us from the start of our holiday and for sorting out our first kind of disappointment right away and as best as possible!!

I would definitely recommend Shinagawa beach by Asia Leisure to families, couples and friends, who are looking for a really relaxing holiday!

Lovely location on the beach
Reviewed 2 months ago

This hotel has a great location right on the beach. The rooms are a good size with a sea view. It also has an infinity pool. It was lovely and relaxing after 2 weeks travelling around. I did find the meals quite expensive, as they added tax, service etc on, which was a shock compared to everywhere else we had eaten on the holiday. The staff were ok, but not necessarily good enough to warrant the service. Would rather have had the choice. You do get hassled on the beach a bit.
