We travelled trough Sri Lanka for two weeks and found Amarasinga Guest House the best place to stay! First we stayed two nights in Mirissa, then we left to visit some other places in the country. We saw a lot of nice things, but I missed the ocean and the positive vibes in Mirissa so much that we rethought our plans and came back. Fortunately our room was still available.
The accomodation is basic, but sufficient and most important very private. The guesthouse is also very nicely located: our view existed of banana and papaya trees. The garden of the guesthouse is very nice: all this flowers, cheeky birds and noisy peacocks in daytime. In the evening you have a nice spot to watch the big fruit eating bats flying out. The path you have to follow to get to the beach (takes only five minutes) is a real jungle path next to a small river, with monkeys, kingfishers and even a watersnake! When you come home late at night, the little fireflies show you the way.
The food in Amarasinge Guest House was wonderfull! Afterwords, I regret I didn't take a cookery class to replicate all this nice curries at home...
The staff was very nice: professional, but friendly.
I highly recommend this guest house and hope to visite them again in the future!
