Chirruping squirrels, meowing peacocks and croaking frogs are just some of the orchestral sounds we heard at Siri Wedamadura. The tropical grounds stretch up a hillside (the house and pool are located on the lowest part of the land) and this expanse makes you feel like you are in the countryside yet the house is centrally located in Mirissa. The beach (where you’ll find lots of simple restaurants) is less than a five-minute walk away, and embarking on whale- and dolphin-watching trips couldn’t be easier as you only have to walk 200 metres or so to reach the harbour. Lined by colourful catamarans the harbour is an attraction in itself, so save some time before or after your whale-watching trip to explore.

We felt that Siri Wedamadura would be a perfect escape for families. The grounds are vast, the pool is generous, the beach is close by and the friendly staff are on hand to cook, clean and tidy. Of the four bedrooms, three are twins, but can be pushed together to make kings if required. Aside from the pool and gardens (and a lonely bluetooth iPod dock), there are few facilities here, so if you think you’ll need more entertainment, bring your laptop, DVDs and a stack of books with you. The staff were helpful and the management team (based in Galle Fort) are on call at any time.

Highlights

Siri Wedamadura’s great location, just a few minutes from Mirissa’s famed beach and scenic harbour, is a definite highlight. The lovely grounds are blessed with coffee plants, mango and cashew trees, and a summit with panoramic views of the ocean and neighbouring Weligama Bay.

Surprises

There is no air conditioning at the house and nor is there a TV. Expect some mosquitoes at dawn and dusk and, although we didn’t see any, the villa information book warned about the possibility of snakes (most are harmless) and other wildlife in the long grass or jungle areas, and suggested carrying a torch if wandering around outside at night.
