Mirissa | First Class

With just six rooms, Lantern feels more like a private home than a hotel – that is, if your home boasts panoramic sea views, a 23-metre long freshwater swimming pool and a team of smiling staff on hand to attend to your every wish!

Add to this idyllic picture a deserted stretch of white-sand beach, contemporary style rooms all of which enjoy sea views and mouth-watering meals on par with a city restaurant. What’s not to like? Food is infact a huge focus at Lantern and one of the property’s highlights is its unique ‘urban kitchen’: an open space where guests can hang out and either observe or participate in the cooking, and, naturally, sample some of the freshly prepared treats. Just as you would do in your kitchen at home!

With an underlying philosophy of cultural integrity and eco-responsibility, the team behind Lantern are committed to community development: the property has been built using local materials by local craftsmen; the majority of staff are Sri Lankan and food is sourced from local farmers and fishermen. So a stay at Lantern also gives back to the community.

We Say
The Suites are almost double the size of the rooms making them ideal for families.
