The Spice House is a delightful gem. Close to the beach, it offers tastefully decorated rooms with balconies, clean en suite bathrooms, an open varandah to lounge around, and mouthwatering meals. The owners Phil and Watsala welcome guests with open arms, and make sure they are comfortable and happy. The newly added swimming pool is a bonus. It's a great place to meet other travelers. And it is definitely a place that families with small children can enjoy. We absolutely loved spending 5 nights there!
- 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
