#58 of 277 in Mirissa
Serenity Resort is just a 10 second walk across the road to Mirissa beach. We have 9 spacious rooms with WIFI, modern hot water bathrooms and large comfortable beds. Each room has either a balcony or outdoor seating area for ground floor rooms. We offer complementary toiletries and tea/coffee facilities in every room. All areas of the hotel including the garden and breakfast restaurant are accessible. We have the best and freshest seafood in Mirissa. Our resident chef de parti, Ritchi Warisadeera, has worked in 5 star hotels across the world. His speciality dishes offer a real taste of Mirissa in candle light right on the beach. We can organise tours across the island including local whale watching and water sports such as surfing and snorkelling. Serenity is run by Nuwan who has over 18 years experience in hospitality across the world, including Japan, Maldives and the UK. Nuwan is dedicated to offering a great experience and will help you have the best stay possible. Mirissa, a small beach town, has one of the best beaches in the world. Remaining largely untouched, Mirissa offers a genuine relaxed Sri Lankan experience. The sea is calm, quiet and clean during high season, when you can enjoy the world famous whale and dolphin watching. Also famed for surfing, snorkelling and diving. Mirissa also boasts a beautiful colourful coral reef and sea life. Evenings can be enjoyed with the freshest seafood and the warmest hospitality of the Sri Lankan people. Public transport is very accessible and private tuktuks and taxis can be arranged. It's very easy to access our hotel, we're approximately 3 hours from Colombo via the Southern Express Highway to Mirissa and we are just off the road side of Colombo Matara main road. We even have the convenience of airport pickup and drop off service as requested by the guests.

This hotel has sea view rooms but is not directly on the beach- it is across the main road, but is still just about 50 metres from the beach. The rooms are simple, but elegant and very neat. They dont have any restaurant but the location is such that you have so many choices just outside the hotel. Overall, a very good hotel- maybe a bit overpriced.

Myself and three friends stayed in two rooms for six nights. Rooms are basic and clean although at times the shower drain was quite smelly. Kalan was the perfect host with a lovely smile. He was very hardworking but always made time to come and chat. He was exceptional, nothing was too much trouble and provided us with beach towels everything and made a lovely breakfast each morning. There is a Chinese restaurant attached to the hotel and appeared to be quite a popular place to eat. Although we did not eat dinner there Kalan arranged a late night snack on chicken with noodles which was very tasty. Se

Having been the week before for a meal here we decided to return and stay a few nights because we had the most amazing food and we were so welcomed by Nuwan, Kalem and the team. We were not disappointed, the hotel is right across from the beautiful beach, they even carried sun beds on to the beach for us which was great as we had our own little piece of paradise. The breakfast was great and the room clean and spacious. These are the best bunch of guys ever, nothing is too much trouble, fantastic team and we will definitely be back.

WARNING! Hotel was overbooked. Instead of being honest we were lied to and told that it was only the spa and they tried to put us into a neighbouring property was supposedly their ‘new location’ but instead was in dire need of work. Very dishonest. We found a new hotel near by on our own and requested a refund from the booking site Agoda. Overbookings happen but the fact that they tried to lie and move us instead of being honest was really upsetting.

Very bad experience as they totally misguided with different view pics and the real hotel is totally different other than the yellow walls. No parking and you need to park on main road and beach is in front side but you need to cross this very busy main road. Atmosphere is not good for holidays and we didn’t find anything attractive from this hotel and we cancelled our booking then and their after seen this hotel and we lost money for booking because this hotel totally misguided us and not met our expectations from the atmosphere. I think it’s better if booking.com Also check these hotels whether they put right comments and pictures on the briefing rather waisting customers time and money . Finally after driving around that we found something nice to stay and relax 2 nights but this experience totally disaster and very bad . Hope this will help for others . Don’t judge from the pictures I must say ....

Well, I honestly can’t recommend this place highly enough. We stayed for 3 nights and wished we had booked more. The owner and all of the staff were great, very helpful, friendly and went out of their way to make our stay as good as possible. The room was large, with a wonderful sea view. Very clean and attended daily and restocked with water and anything else it needed. The food downstairs in their restaurant was Chinese and the nicest Chinese food I have ever had... each night it was full and it was as well as the room, great value for money. Will definitely return and next time book longer!
