Walking along the protected cove of Mirissa Beach, we spotted the stone steps leading up to Number One Mirissa, partially obscured by the palm trees. Within an hour we had packed-up our bags and relocated there. We planned to stay one or two nights at Number One, but ended up returning for a couple more because we simply loved it there. The spacious rooms, beautiful dark timber floors, four poster beds with fresh white linen, and huge double doors bringing in the sea breezes are a winning combination. Our top-level balcony was also the perfect spot to sink a few beers and watch the surfers each afternoon. The staff were friendly, helpful and relaxed. Although the pool was still under construction when we were there (about a month ago) it doesn't really matter because the beach is lovely and the water clean. As is the case in most places, the Sri Lankan food is far better than the local take on Western foods, but on the whole the meals were great. Its very hard to fault the place.
