Set among tropical gardens with flowers, ponds and hammocks, Spice House is a colonial-style hotel a 2-minute walk from Mirissa Beach. It features a large veranda overlooking the jungle where breakfast is served.

En-suite rooms open out onto a private balcony overlooking the spice garden or the Indian Ocean. They are fitted with 4-poster beds and traditional wood-carved furnishings. Amenities include cable TV channels.

Whale and dolphin-watching boat trips leave from the Fisheries Harbour just 5 minutes’ drive away. It is a 15-minute drive from Dondra Lighthouse, the island’s highest and Southernmost point. Galle Fort is a 45-minute drive from the hotel.

Guests can surf the internet for free and rent canoeing and snorkelling equipment at the The Spice House Mirissa. The family who runs the guest-house will help plan visits and cater home-cooked meals.

Situated 1 minute from the loveliest beach in Sri-Lanka – a beautiful calm bay which is protected by a coral reef making it ideal for safe, year round swimming. The clear waters are perfect for snorkeling and turtle spotting and the beach and headland ideal for watching beautiful sunsets.

Sleepy Mirissa itself is a tropical paradise on the South Coast, we are 45 minutes from Galle to the West and only 10 minutes from the larger town of Matara to the East.

The LONELY PLANET GUIDE describes Mirissa as having “a beautiful curve of

sandy beach with calm crystal clear waters perfect for snorkeling.”

The ROUGH GUIDE says Mirissa is “an intimate and idyllic beach hidden away behind a thick swathe of palm trees.”

Built in 2009 using traditional techniques and materials all 9 guest rooms have an Old World Colonial charm with 4 poster beds, high ceilings, balconies with either garden or sea facing views.
