Just spent a lovely weekend at the Spice House Mirissa. Lovely friendly welcome from Phil and his Sri Lankan wife Wathsala. Like visiting old friends really. Really nice rooms and chilled garden and pool for relaxing. Main beach is only a 10 min walk and there is also a nice quiet swimming cove just opposite. Breakfast is fab with local fresh fruit, pancakes, eggs, toast, coconut rotti. Dinner if you want it is cooked by their local chef and they are hoping to expand their menu with snacks soon. They are just putting the finishing touches to this smashing little guest house and we will certainly be back for more! Very good value ...
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Spice House, Mirissa is a beautiful Colonial style guesthouse with its own private swimming pool set in a peaceful, landscaped garden full of tropical flowers, fruits, spices, ponds & hammocks. It is ideally situated only one minute from a beautiful, reef protected bay & 1km from the main bustle of Mirissa beach. The guesthouse is English owned by an experienced traveller and his Sri Lankan Wife which allows us to offer our guests the perfect mix of Western comfort & luxury alongside Sri Lankan charm & service - we like our guests to feel like part of the family. The house is shaded by coconut palms & cinnamon trees to the front while the back is terraced which allows wonderful views over the surrounding jungle. Local wildlife is often seen in our garden with daily visits from monkeys, kingfishers, peacocks, woodpeckers & squirrels. We can also help with Airport transfers & booking whale watching trips during the season (November - April). ... more less
