I stayed here for quite a few nights. The owners are sweet. There are bungalows and there is two story building that houses about eight other rooms. The accommodation was simple but exactly what you need. Mosquito nets, fan, en-suite, balcony. My only criticism is the heat in the upstairs rooms... unbelievably hot during the day... that said, within a... More

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

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
