#5 of 46 in Mirissa
Welcome to Mirissa Hills, one of the finest cinnamon estates southern Sri Lanka can offer. Spend your time wining and dining in our fabulous restaurant, famed for the magical local cuisine and western surprises, or enjoy a night in one of three totally unique and boutique luxury villas aboard the estate. At the top of the hill you will find yourself transported into an architectural jewel, designed by the infamous C. Anjalendran, protege to the late and great Geoffrey Bawa. Mount Cinnamon has panoramic views of the surrounding landscapes. Enjoy high tea of scones and cake whilst your eye wanders from paddy fields, mountains, jungle, all the way to the Weligama coastline. The contrast between contemporary and modern is done flawlessly from the flow of the building to the furniture that adorns this spacious home. The second property, called The Cinnamon Museum is home to a boutique restaurant (currently being renovated) where you can try the all the delights Sri Lanka has too offer, experience a traditional English high tea with cakes using our very own cinnamon. Western dishes are also available and are truly a gourmet experience. Come for the day and enjoy the beautiful views whilst relaxing by the infinity pool, lose yourself amongst the cinnamon trails or stay in one of four rooms decorated with hand chosen works of art and modern bathroom facilities. The final property is stooped in historical charm, over one hundred years in age, The Bungalow is the original estate building. The walls and floors are adorned with traditional furnishings to transport you back in time to by gone Ceylon. We also have a luxury tent perfect for a nights "glamping" experience, wake up amongst the cinnamon and enjoy a coffee whilst admiring the view of our whole estate. So join us for the day, book a room or occupy the entire property and enjoy a relaxing experience in the heart of Sri Lankan culture.

Brilliant hotel, great stay, lovely team. Special thanks to Thila who helped us with our Blue Whale Watching Trip and also our taxi at the very last minute to Thangalle - and to Prassanna who really looked after us during our stay with some unbelievable dinners and lunches. I would advise to eat in the hotel, their chef is amazing. Thank you again for the great trip.

We made a reservation (Agoda) for 2 rooms & 2 nights at the hotel, paying $111/room/night (LKR20,000/night) - room price for luxury hotels in Sri Lanka. Making check in (by the manager – Mr. Thilak) in late evening, we got small 2 rooms (in the lower building), nothing that can be described as “Luxury” with dirty bathrooms, cold water shower & hot water tap not working; There were no tea/coffee kettle, no frigde, neither a safe. These rooms have NOTHING to do with the photos of the Agoda reservation, Trip Advisor, Oyster site or any other. In the morning we found out where are the (real) Cinnamon Museum LUXURY Rooms - they are located in the main building (where the museum & the restaurant are), 3 minutes climb from our “downstairs HOSTEL”. Taking to Mr. Thilak, he explained us that we got the “correct rooms”, although we showed him our Agoda reservation and the photos attached to the reservation. No help! Mr. Thilak suggested us to ask for reimbursement from Agoda, as (he claimed that) “the Agoda room photos were not correct” It is really a shame that an hotel as the Mirrisa Hills is not honoring its reservations with its clients, providing his guests with hostel type rooms for $111/night. Highly recommend to confirm any reservation (before closing) with Mirrisa Hills the Real rooms you will be getting

(Review for Mount Cinnamon, not Cinnamon House) This is probably the nicest hotel that I have ever stayed in (100x more so when you consider the price). Stunningly designed home (by one of Sri Lanka's most famous architects), only 4 rooms, exquisite antique furniture, provoking art, views for days, beautiful pool (the pool at Cinnamon house is nicer though, only a 4 minute walk away), and excellent service from the staff. Very friendly dog too. Breakfast's were good, we did have dinner once, which was very good collection of Sri Lankan dishes (6000 rupees for 4 people). Contrary to other reviews, they do have beer at the house, but they let us bring our own wine for dinner. The cutlery was so beautiful we asked where they bought it (Paradise Road, Colombo), and bought it ourselves for a hefty price. Its a bit out of the way, up a bumpy driveway, but its so nice to get away from the highway. They will phone a tuk tuk to come up as well, should be around 400 to get into Mirissa, but a bit harder to get that rate going back (once you experience the hill you will know why). If this place is remotely in your budget, stay here, especially for more than 1 night. It is extremely relaxing. If it matters as well, LGBT friendly for sure (possibly LGBT owned based on some of the art work).

Room Tip: Stay in Mount Cinnamon, not Cinnamon House. Cinnamon House is still great, just not as great.

We only did the tour with the lunch option included; next visit we’ll be sure to stay. The tour itself was informative and unhurried; we had plenary of time to ask questions & just watch the highly skilled artisans at work. And such idyllic surroundings! The interior spaces house an eclectic, always interesting, collection of art works (some from well-established Sri Lankan artists) and offer outstanding window /terrace views of the ocean & cinnamon plantation. The exterior is equally stunning with an extensive 360 panorama. Lunch was a feast; the vegetable curries (we had green bean, potato & carrot) were particularly exquisite. The dessert ~ cinnamon ice cream elevated the meal to perfection.

We just returned from a weekend here. We booked the deluxe room which was absolutely lovely, big , comfortable and with an amazingly breathtaking view. This hotel stands apart from others in the same price range as it is so classy..filled with interesting artefacts and stylish antiques. It has such a homely feel you really do feel like you are staying in someone's home while they are on holiday. We were welcomed warmly by the manager and a very pleasant security team. During our stay the staff were superb. Prasanna and Damith could not have been more attentive. The home cooked food was excellent and Mahesh the chef makes fantastic soup! Also try the tasty home made cinnamon ice cream. The two pools are beautiful..one is an infinity pool overlooking the spectacular sri lankan countryside. We went here purely because it allowed us to take our dog with us who had as much fun as we did. The place has 2 of its own lovely, sweet natured dogs too. We will definitely be back..hopefully very soon. Thankyou!

Beautiful new-built but older feeling property in Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa style but built by one of his disciples. Owned by former chairman of Ogilvy & Mathers. Amazing views in all directions (top of hill), fabulous food, very classy and arty decoration. Feels like flashy private home (which it is), rather than hotel. Not much to do, so probably best for 1 night, but great experience, also for the cinnamon plantation tour with the plantation manager, that is included.

Mirissa Hills is one of the best examples how architecture built in to the nature. A simple form connects the outdoor and indoor effortlessly yet gives a very cozy living experience. Me and my wife stayed here for two nights and it felt like home (a beautiful one). Staff is really friendly and food is amazing. Above all we fell in love with “Mathu” (the dog) who is really friendly and kept us company all the time. Mirissa Hills Luxury Villas are recommend to anybody who loves a clam and a relaxing stay. Not recommended for big crowds. Our thank goes to Archt. Anjalendran for designing such a beautiful place. And thank you Prasanna and staff for the excellent service. We well intend to visit again.

I went to visit this plantation today after reading in our lonely planet Sri Lanka guide about it and having paid 1650rs per person (which was more than the tea plantation we visited which held and excellent tour) we were a little disappointed. We turned up at 11:30, the manager went off on his scooter for ‘5 mins’ came back 20 minutes later and then took us around the plantation. We watched one of the plantation workers at work and in all honesty as much as the manager stressed that the workers earn lots of money that didn’t look like the case the poor guy looked exhausted and covered in dirt in a dirty room with a radio on, on his own. He also advised that the workers start at 4am and finish at midnight which is literally madness. It didn’t seem like a ‘fair trade’ kind of place and that doesn’t sit well with me admittedly. Was it a good tour? Sure it was informative. Was it something I would do again? Probably not. In hindsight having done the tour, was it worth it? No. I just don’t think there’s enough interesting content to call it a ‘tour’ and if the staff were paid and treated better it would probably be more worthwhile.
