We loved being at Mihiri House as a couple, but we’ve visited on other occasions as part of a bigger group and have seen how it really comes into its own then. Its set up is very sociable – the ground floor living/dining room is huge and there are lots of places for everyone to find their own spot without resorting to different rooms.

Because the bedrooms are almost equally sized, it’s a great house for groups as well as families. The bedroom layout would suit two families travelling together as well, and the rooms on the ground floor would be ideal for any less mobile travelling companions. We liked the upstairs bedrooms because you could throw open the windows at night and let in the breeze – great if you fancy a change from the air conditioning.

The villa has only recently (March 2012) opened to guests and the staff team are still a little shy, but they were always smiling and responsive to our requests and left us to it most of the time, which we liked. You’re welcome to use the excellent kitchen yourself, though with the chef’s cooking on offer (we loved the curries) and the temptation of a great local restaurant within walking distance (Wijaya), it’s unlikely it’ll cross your mind.

Highlights

The zingy colour scheme really brings Mihiri House’s interiors alive, and we loved the eye-catching artwork. Chilling out in the orange-cushioned alcove in the living room or under the stars on the blue daybeds in the pergola was positively addictive. And the villa’s seaside location, within walking distance of some good restaurants, is excellent.

Surprises

The villa is set beside the Galle Road, so you can hear the occasional bus passing, although the sea does do a good job of drowning out all traffic. There’s a friendly dog at the villa, but if you’re not pooch-lovers, she can be temporarily rehoused. Some of the stairs leading up to the first floor have no handrail, so keep an eye on young children.

Mihiri Beach house was divine - such a lovely change to places we have stayed before in Thailands and Indonesia. The Sri lankan people are so hospitable and kind. Our chef and his team spoilt us every day with amazing treats. A great place to truly relax - we were in bed most night at 9.00pm - fantastic!
