Number One Mirissa, Mirissa
Sri Lanka, The South Coast

Info : Number One Mirissa

Mirissa Bay was until recently a hidden gem – a charming tropical bay that is much less crowded than the beaches close to Galle. It’s no wonder the area is growing in popularity – Mirissa Bay still maintains that secluded tropical feel, and Number One Mirissa makes the most of the ambience. Expect lovely shaded gardens, great views, brightly coloured hammocks, spacious terraces, and an incredible infinity pool. 

Number One Mirissa is well known for its welcoming feel, first class food, and incredibly helpful staff. The seafood platter comes highly recommended. Many travellers end up here for some much-needed relaxation and quiet beach time after exploring all the cultural icons and historical monuments that Sri Lanka has to offer. If you feel like exploring, it’s a great base for whale watching, sea fishing expeditions, the historic walled town of Galle, lowland tea factories, and even a local snake farm. Mirissa is also known for its vibrant nightlife, though this hotel is round the bay from any nightlife, so is very quiet. Otherwise, curl up with a book or go for a surf.

The rooms are on the smaller side, but clean and beautifully furnished, with polished wooden floors and poster beds. There are four garden rooms on the ground floor, and the four first floor rooms have wonderful views.

Number One Mirissa is an intimate and charming hotel with very friendly staff, but it’s not a smooth five star operation. It is definitely more laid back and welcoming than sumptuous luxury. 


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.
