Delicious food. Delicious views. Spent two nights here. Lovely place, marvelous staff. Blessedly far from the beach. The rooms are spotless and the pool is divine. Fallen frangipani blossoms float on the surface. The library in the executive suite has a lot of local information.

Prior to booking a room at the Mirissa Hills, my partner was told that it was situated 2 kms away from the beach. Upon arrival, the receptionist/waiter/cleaner/driver gave us a room in the Bungalow and told us that it was 5 kms away. I don't mind staying in isolated places at all. What is a major concern for me is... More

I am not going to repeat all the totally justifiable praise heaped on Mirissa Hills by other reviewers because actions speak louder than words. We first had 5 nights at this Place 3 years ago and knew before we left that we would be returning to Sri Lanka specifically to spend much longer at this very special place. After many... More

Fantastic location And warm hospitality adds to the charm...though it seems on a little expensive side, its worth a experience if you are with your family. It also has a very traditional touch.. one of the best moments i remember in Sri Lanka We stayed one single night in Mirissa and used this hotel. The location is excellent overlooking the... More

We stayed in the Museum at this wonderful hotel. A magical place, very atmospheric in a beautiful situation in the heart of a working cinnamon plantation. The staff were charming and attentive, our room extremely comfortable with wonderful views. The infinity pool overlooking the natural forest was stunning. It was only a two minute easy walk to the top of... More

I stayed at Mirissa Hills for one evening and tried to extend, thank goodness they did not have the extra night I needed available as I would not stay here again. I agree with most of the other reviewers that have stayed here that this place has potential- good hardware, but lacks the software/maintenance. Positives: Nice architecture- layout of the... More

Mirissa Hills is located on the top of a cinnamon plantation with amazing views of the bay and hidden into the jungle. From the main road of Mirissa , you need to drive on top approximately 2 klm . Road is rough/bad and it takes 10 to 15 minutes drive . The tuk tuk cost is between 400 to 500... More

This property is not like any hotel I've ever stayed in before! Part hotel, part art gallery, part museum, it's beautiful and but odd! We stayed for two nights and I absolutely loved it. Set right up in the jungle, it's so peaceful. The infinity pool looks down over the jungle and is a unique spot for bird watching. This... More

On arrival, we have been upgraded and service was exceptional. Nice location with difficulty in finding. Bad road conditions. About meals - best coffee, delicious breakfast but dinner was not up to expectations. The best thing about the hotel is serene location and atmosphere.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Mirissa Hills, one of the finest cinnamon estates southern Sri Lanka can offer. Spend your time wining and dining in our fabulous restaurant, famed for the magical local cuisine and western surprises, or enjoy a night in one of three totally unique and boutique luxury villas aboard the estate. At the top of the hill you will find yourself transported into an architectural jewel, designed by the infamous C. Anjalendran, protege to the late and great Geoffrey Bawa. Mount Cinnamon has panoramic views of the surrounding landscapes. Enjoy high tea of scones and cake whilst your eye wanders from paddy fields, mountains, jungle, all the way to the Weligama coastline. The contrast between contemporary and modern is done flawlessly from the flow of the building to the furniture that adorns this spacious home. The second property, called The Cinnamon Museum is home to a boutique restaurant (currently being renovated) where you can try the all the delights Sri Lanka has too offer, experience a traditional English high tea with cakes using our very own cinnamon. Western dishes are also available and are truly a gourmet experience. Come for the day and enjoy the beautiful views whilst relaxing by the infinity pool, lose yourself amongst the cinnamon trails or stay in one of four rooms decorated with hand chosen works of art and modern bathroom facilities. The final property is stooped in historical charm, over one hundred years in age, The Bungalow is the original estate building. The walls and floors are adorned with traditional furnishings to transport you back in time to by gone Ceylon. We also have a luxury tent perfect for a nights "glamping" experience, wake up amongst the cinnamon and enjoy a coffee whilst admiring the view of our whole estate. So join us for the day, book a room or occupy the entire property and enjoy a relaxing experience in the heart of Sri Lankan culture. ... more   less
