Number One Mirissa

Mirissa | First Class

A characterful boutique hotel looking out across beautiful Mirissa Bay, Number One Mirissa strikes just the right balance between eccentric luxury and that low key tropical ambience one needs after ten days devouring inland Sri Lanka’s cultural richness.

Mirissa, not too long ago a backpacker’s secret, is still being discovered by holiday-makers seeking to escape the busier beaches near Galle, and thus benefits from uncrowded amenities. Obviously inspired by Geoffrey Bawa, Sri Lanka’s iconic architect, Number One itself is full of open shaded space. The large suites all benefit from stunning views through the trees and across the bay. Interiors feature polished wooden floors set off by cool cream walls, flowing drapes, antique Sri Lankan furniture and four poster beds. Each possesses a spacious outdoor terrace, and the ground floor suites also boast colourful hammocks under the palm trees - perfect for total relaxation with a pile of books and a cool drink.

Clinging to the cliff side, overlooking the beach, the infinity pool is a good spot to soak in your tropical surroundings whilst maintaining a degree of seclusion, and the intimate restaurant and bar alongside it are staffed by true professionals, offering a delicious, selective international menu and an excellent range of cocktails and fresh local juices.

We Say
Cool Bawa-inspired architecture overlooking a stunning beach.
