Guest house has been extended recently with a building next to the main road. We had an upstairs room in the back garden (old part of guest house), though the location was quiet except for the sound of fauna at night. Rooms are small but simple and functional, comfortable bed with mosquito net. Balcony with view on the nice flora... More

For the cost of the place and the location you get it's perfect in mirissa. Simply cross the road and you're at the main entrance to the beach. Always tuk tuks outside and staff always happy to help if you've got any needs. Only down side was the sewage river that ran through the complex. Didn't give of the best... More

After reading all the great reviews on here we booked for three nights here at around £22 per night (non a/c). On arrival we were kindly greeted and shown to our room. I don't know what we expected really however it wasn't what we found. This really is a budget style traveller accommodation in a good location. Rooms weren't clean,... More

We revisited Samantha and Nilmini after many years, this time with our 3 year old daughter. It was wonderful to see them and the work they did to their place is simply amazing! They cooked us a delicious traditional Sri Lankan rice and curry and treated us as like a family member. Thank you so much for your hospitality! We... More

We stayed there for 4 nights and had an excellent time. The rooms were spacious (compared to all our previous experiences) and had useful furniture in them. The bedframe with inbuilt mosquito net is a great plus so that you don't have the net on your face when you sleep. Good fan too. The bathroom was clean and spacious, the... More

Once arriving in Mirissa by the local bus and a short distance walk from the stop we came across this guest house nestled among a garden and alongside the river. Only a stones throw away from the beach on the main road we thought it would be noisy, though proved to be otherwise. We stayed in the two storey duplex... More

Me and a friend stayed for 3 1/2 weeks at samanthas place. We wanted to stay only for 3 nights but we felt so welcome that we didn't want to leave. The breakfast was amazing, so was the place itself. Full of palms, trees, lizards and many other animals. Samantha and his wife nilmini always helped us when there was... More

I am a biologist visiting Sri Lanka regularly and longer periods, and for the last four times I've been there, I stayed at Flora & Fauna, all in all for several weeks. The rooms are simple, clean and nice, (decorated with nice marine biology posters!) and, most importantly, the owners Samantha and Nilmini are absolutely wonderful, very helpful and make... More
