Beautiful Colonial style guesthouse set in an acre of terraced tropical gardens with an infinity edged swimming pool with jungle views. Lots of wildlife abound including two types of monkeys, kingfishers, peacocks, woodpeckers, mongoose & palm squirrels. We are also only a two minute walk from a reef protected bay and a 2 minute tuk tuk ride from the bars & restaurants of Mirissa's lively main beach.

Where to start? Phil and Wathsala were absolutely wonderful hosts- they couldn’t have been more welcoming and helpful. The Spice House is just beautiful- serene and quiet and yet with staff on hand at any time to help you. The food was some of the best we’ve had in a month in Sri…

The place, as other reviews mentioned, is beautiful. The pool is small but lovely, lots of outdoor areas to sit in, food is great etc. The only thing is I wouldnt really recommend it for couples. Again there is nothing wrong the the amenities but the bedrooms don't have any curta…

Hi Mark, Thank you for your review. Sorry about the issues with the lack of curtains and not being given an explanation why this is so. The balcony doors are new and the ones they replaced had frosted glass so were private, I did have small blinds made for the new glass panels but when it came to fitting them we found that you couldn't fold the doors open completely so we gave up on that idea and decided to use curtains, the initial curtain pole brackets that were made were too big for the space above the doors so we are currently waiting for new ones to be made. Once again sorry that this was not explained to you properly & that the temporary window covering was inadequate. the balcony does have bamboo blinds which if you had let down would have made the balcony and room totally private and sun proof.

Lovely place to stay for a few days in Mirissa. Located on the main road, 10 minute walk to the beach but set back far enough so you don't have any noise. Be aware the walk to the beach is along the busy main road although you can get a tuk tuk. Amazing garden, flowers and wildli…

Hi Chris, Thank you for your very kind review. I would just like to point out to any prospective new guests that the main beach where most of the bars & restaurants are is a 10 minute walk or 1 minute by tuk tuk but there is also a quieter beautiful reef protected bay which is only a two minute walk in front of us.

Having come highly recommended by friends, we knew it was going to be great. However, it’s not until you turn off the main road, head up the hill and through the gate that you truly appreciate what a special place this is. Greeted with smiles all around the switch automatically t…

We had a brilliant time at the Spice House - wish we could have stayed longer! You have to try the dinner - it’s a little more expensive than eating in the town but 100% worth it.
