Casa Colombo Mirissa
A sister hotel to the capital’s Casa Colombo, Casa Colombo Mirissa is a lovely new (2015) boutique hotel right on the beach very near Mirissa, a popular spot with visitors about 20 miles east of Galle on Sri Lanka’s south coast. There are only six suites, some with sea views and all but one are on the first floor. One suite is privately situated by the side of the main building at ground floor level with a private plunge pool – very suitable for families and honeymooners. A private butler is allocated to each room and guests are given a dedicated mobile telephone programmed with the butler’s number so he can be reached at any time – it can also make and receive local calls.
One can’t swim off the beach when it’s rough in February and March, but swimming can generally be done from April – in any case, the pool is right on the beach. Turtles regularly come to nest on this stretch of beach, and the hotel rescues the eggs and releases the young once hatched.
There is a very good seafood restaurant open to guests and the general public offering a wide range of fish and other seafood, cooked in a variety of ways.
Restaurant, lounge, swimming pool, private motor boat.
Whale watching boat trips leave from the nearby port to see blue whales and dolphins, or you can hire the hotel’s private motor yacht for the same purpose. Turtles nest on the beach in front of the hotel.
The hotel has a private 33-foot motor yacht kept in Mirissa harbour for private whale watching charters and sundowner cruises.
Always choose sea view rooms if available.

We were absolutely thrilled by the whole experience and can only commend the helpfulness and friendliness of everyone who made our holiday so special. We cannot speak highly enough of all of our guides who were extremely knowledgeable and went above and beyond to enhance our Sri Lankan wildlife encounters. We felt very privileged to be with guides who have so much expertise.
