Mirissa is almost a 4 ½ hour drive out of Colombo , which I imagine will be much less once the southern express highway is in use.
Drive a side the location of Mandara is truly unique surrounded by cliffs and Islands. The resort is well kept and spacious. The staff cordial and pleasant.
The rooms are wonderfully spacious with beautiful views of the Indian Ocean. The hot tub in view of the bed room is a true treat for romantics looking for get away.
The wine selection is not bad, and the cocktails as good as any.
One would expect a better variety of sea food dishes from a place this close to the sea. The lobster lacks the zest of the Sri Lankan flavor and the Chef sincerely needs to reinvent his stance on sea food.
Apart from the food that needs improvement the resort is comfortable spacious and delightful.
Definitely a place that is child and family friendly since you will have no issue fitting in even 3 kids in its spacious rooms.
