Casa Colombo Collection Mirissa,
Sri Lanka, The South Coast
Info : Casa Colombo Collection Mirissa
Casa Colombo Collection Mirissa is a small and rather chic hotel on Mirissa’s main stretch featuring six stylish suites, one villa, and a truly fabulous pool. You’ll find a distinct beach vibe here: relaxed, refreshing and somewhat eclectic. Come to Casa Colombo Collection Mirissa for attentive service, astonishing views and great (albeit rather expensive) meals.
Mirissa is on the south coast of Sri Lanka, facing the Indian Ocean. Visit the bustling fish market, take part in action water sports or just lie on the endless stretches of white sand. If cultural pursuits are at the top of your list, the Galle Fort is close by, and you can plan a safari in Yala National Park. Whale watching tours are just ten minutes away from Casa Colombo Collection Mirissa. At the hotel itself, you won’t lift a finger thanks to the attentive service from the Casa Domos (personal butlers). Perhaps the biggest thrill of all is the hotel’s private yacht, Miss Elle, available for whale watching, sunset cruises and private charters.
The bright and roomy suites are decorated with striking colour accents and a mix of modern and antique furnishings. Some may find the pillows unnerving with their watchful eyes, but you can always hide them under the bed. Five of the six suites feature views of the ocean. The two-bedroom standalone villa features two suites located just a short distance away from the main hotel facilities.
Deluxe - This is our first really 'upmarket' category. It might be a beautiful tiny hotel with very limited facilities or a 5* resort hotel with all the trimmings; but any hotel in this category will be a well-run establishment with very comfortable rooms, a strong service ethos and excellent food.
We stayed in Villa Aspara. Awesome. I am not telling you why, as I want to go back there and it will get fully booked. (sorry Andrew - we can't keep a secret...)
