The Sachal Mir's is a lovely and peaceful place to rest at after or before a long flight. The charming family will greet you as a member of their family and you really don't want to leave. The place is right by the lagoon far from the noice in Negombo town. Rooms are very clean and have got what you... More

The place it's self was ok, the room had it's own shower and air conditioning (though it leaked water my bed through out the night) and breakfast was nice, you eat it sat outside in the garden. What put us off as two young girls traveling alone was the pushiness of the staff, we had arranged a transfer with them... More

We stayed a night in a clean, spacious room. However, the one overhead fan did not cool us very much, and we sweated throughout the hot May night, unable to sleep much. It is a pity, as the place was away from the city centre, and set in lovely rural surroundings, facing a bay, which made taking breakfast made by... More

Great price for a guesthouse on the lagoon , very helpful and friendly staff , rooms are clean and very comfortable , mozzie nets are big enough to cover beds comfortably and towels are provided. The breakfast which was included in the price was excellent and the view over the lagoon from the dining area is suburb. Highly recommended

This is a very nice place, close to the airport and a great view of the Negombo Lagoon. We stayed one night after our flight into Sri Lanka, due to it's close location to the airport. The rooms are very clean and roomy. A bit far from the beach, but only just a tuktuk ride away. Breakfast and dinner are... More

The B&B is located on the Negombo lagoon which beautiful views. Booked this one as I was arriving in Colombo by a late night flight. I regret I did not book it for more than a day as I had to leave for Kandy. The staff was helpful even though we landed up at 3.30am The double rooms are clean... More

I was a little disappointed in this B&B after the excellent references that other reviewers had given it. Room was tidy and clean but no air conditioning despite that I paid extra for this. Difficult to sleep after a long flight in the heat. Wireless internet also not working while I was guest. My ipad connected but service so slow... More

What a gem, right on the lagoon, so relaxing and such wonderful people looking after the place, Great food and brilliant hospitality. A fair bit out of town but still only 10 mins by tuk tuk. There is a beach 2 mins walk away but it is not good for swimming but wonderful relaxing sunsets. Far enough away from tourist... More

It is easier to arrive and leave from Negombo than from Colombo, as the airport is closer. The best place to stay is here. Sachal and Kumari will take great care of you, from the moment you enter the lagoon location up to your last ride out. Also nice, if you are looking for a place with a 'community' feeling,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
CERTIFIED AS BUNGALOW SUPERIOR BY SRI LANKA TOURISM DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY,Here at Sachal Mir's B&B we go out of the way to ensure that you do not only have a comfortable stay at Negembo, But also a memorable one. Our ideology of hospitality is based on the love filled teachings of numerous Sufi Poets particularly Sachal Sarmast of Indus Valley Sindh. We provide beds in our dormitories and private rooms. Some of the basic services we provide are: - Lounging area with television and board games - Private Kitchen for our guests - Breakfast - Daily housekeeping -Specified Dining areas -Laundry Services -Tour planning - Outdoor sitting area, We envision providing our guests with a place which would allow them to free their minds and find enlightenment within themselves as the Teachings of Sachal Sarmast say that happiness and salvation is internal. Our Sufi themed decor provides a source of inspiration to those who are willing to feel the love around them. The beauty of Negembo and the wonderful culture of Sri Lanka allow us to provide an extremely ideal B&B where everybody can be comfortable and get a chance to know so many other people, or even better 'themselves' ... more   less
