We found Calm Rest at the last minute. The staff were very friendly and showed us all the room options. The room we chose was clean and comfortable, with a good bed net and hot water. We very much enjoyed our stay here, and it was perfectly located for the beach, which was amazing. We wish we could have stayed... More

All I can say about this place is that it's calm and very good priced. You get everything you need and more (if you ask for it) and considering the location (very close to the beach but not on it) I will definetly stay here the next time as well. The only con I can think about is the cleanliness... More

We arrived in Mirissa without a hotel reservation and tried approx 10 guest houses before settling on Calm Rest. Our room was large and functional, typically Asian in terms of furniture, general condition and cleanliness. The staff were so friendly to us during out stay. They gave us advice, cooked good breakfast and even removed sea urchin stingers from my... More

Second time in Sri Lanka and we decided to go back to Mirissa (which we love!) and spent 6 nights at Calm Rest. (Last year we stayed here for 10 nights, although we only planned 3:)) We stayed in cabanas for few days And moved to a ground floor room last year. This year we stayed in a lovely room... More

Calm rest guesthouse is located 20 metres from the beach (you just have to cross a very small road and walk through a restaurant area of a hotel, which is no problem at all), at the beach there is a wonderful atmosphere, as there are many beachbars with colorful lights and candles and good music. During the day there are... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. The first night in 1 room and second in another (not the cabana or the building). At first they wanted a lot more money that we could spend but we managed to get it down to the rate of 3000 Rs without breakfast. The rooms were basic with a kingsize bed and a quite... More

I spent three nights in one of the rooms on the first floor, and it provided all I needed - it was clean, had mosquito nets, and hot water was running. And a good location, just a few metres away from the beach (if cut through the restaurant across the street). When we came, our room wasn't ready (we hadn't... More

This nice place is not placed in the beach front but 50 mtrs inland, so you dont pay the amazing prizes they ask for being into the sand. Calm rest is a quite place with no eating servicies you can just find cold water and a family who regents the rooms and cabanas but not no much talkative but thats... More

This was one of the few places left with rooms when we were in Mirissa. It was very hot when we were there and the ceiling fans were quite useless at keeping us cool. The wood cabins seemed to retain the heat. The bathroom was quite old and although the toilet was clean there was a lot of spider webs.... More
