Good value for money, since it was off season and prices were low. The guesthouse offer some 'deluxe' and some 'basis' rooms, we stayed at 'deluxe' and it was clean and pretty new. Very basic, with a cupboard chair and fan. Host was very nice and helpful and organized whale watching for the cheapest price (2.000 incl. breakfast) we heard...

I've been staying in Amara Guest House more than two months. The place is very nice, clean, lovely outdoors. My room had a small terrase where you can enjoy, a fridge, great wifi. The owners, Pushpa and Abi are adorable and always happy to help (advices, services, and so on). It's a great location, 5 minutes from the beach, in...

I first stayed here in February 2004. Abey and Pushpa were so welcoming then, that I stayed 5 nights rather than just the one as I had originally intended. I vowed to come back, and although it took me 11 years, I managed to do so in March 2015. It was as though I had never been away. Pushpa and...

During our trip around Sri Lanka we passed Mirissa twice. The second time we wanted to stay longer, at least eight nights. We booked one night at Amara Guest, but after one night asked to stay longer; this was what we wanted as travellers. We needed a realxed place, clean, comfortable, on a good location to visit the beach and...

We were suggested to come here by our other guesthouse in Tangalle and were pleasantly surprised. The family welcomed us with a banana and a Sri Lankan coke, and led us to our room. We had a ground floor balcony with a clothes line, excellent wifi - I could play YouTube videos, a fridge!?!?, nice bed, and one of he...

We stayed 5 nights here over New Year, the rooms were basic, with attached bathroom. The rooms were fine for spending days at the beach and just having somewhere to sleep, it was just 5 minutes walk to Mirissa Beach. The map on Booking.com and Google shows Amara Guest in the wrong location, it's just a bit north of the...

We spent a week here and it was perfect. Pushka and Abey, the owning couple, are very welcome and helpful with everything, we honestly loved them. Rooms are decent and clean and totally sufficient as we didn't spend much time there. The guest house is located two minutes walk from the beach what is great as you'll be away from...

I stayed a long period in this guesthouse, and it was amazing. The guest house owners are amazing! They are willing to help you with everything you ask. They even drove to the next village to buy stuff for us. Great! The rooms are nice and have a directly accessible bathroom. There is a fan with speed regulation above the...

Amara guest was the best guesthouse we stayed in on our trip around Sri lanka. There are refrigerators in rooms :) We tried local breakfast there (string hopers and a plate of fruit) and it was really delicious. The family is really nice and helpful. They organized our visit to snake farm and sold us the cheapest tickets for whale...

Such a friendly couple runs this guesthouse. (She even saved us from a enormous spider.) The room is simple, big and clean. There is even a fridge. Shower is cold (like every other guesthouse) but good water pressure. The food: Rice and chicken curry was delicious! Fair price. We would come back!

“We had number 4 and the toilet didn't flush properly and it had water stains but the room was spacious and had places to put and hang clothes. I think all the rooms look similar so look at the bathroom first before choosing your room. All rooms are quiet as they are enclosed and off the main road.”
