We stayed here for 11 nights and I am sure this place is the best value for money we paid. The guest house is very cozy, it has different types of rooms and bungalows, the staff is friendly and helpful (we had an issue with the whale watching tour and the guy from reception solved it promptly and we were...

We have stayed here before and really enjoyed our visit, however this time it felt a little run down. They were completing lots of painting so this may be why as December and January are the peak months in Sri Lanka, so we may have visited before the annual spruce up! The lads in the guest house are as friendly...

Calm Rest is a peaceful but chilled place, suited for any type of guest. Indeed, you are only 1min away walk from Mirissa beach, or a 10min tuk tuk drive to Weligama (surf reputed beach). There are many small restaurants along the beach, as well as a bit of nightlife time to time. The rooms are correct and have Ac...

We do not put dirty sheets what so ever. In this hot month March this is the cheapest price you can get an air conditioning room with breakfast. I don't think that anyone will ever find a better room than you get from here in Mirissa. Your booking was for US$37.80 per night. If you think that is an expensive...
