It was such a great experience from the moment I emailed Praneeth to my last day staying at his amazing guesthouse! It's definitely the most affordable accommodation on the beach with the best food as well! Location wise could not be better, away from the main beach crowd and loud music, which is only a short 15mins walk along the beautiful coast! I booked a seaview room on the main floor and loved falling asleep and waking up to the loud crashing waves, when you're this close to the sea you don't need AC or hot water showers!
Being a single female traveler can be difficult at times, but Praneeth and his wife made me feel right at home and were so great at helping me out with anything I needed. With Praneeth's direction, I took the local bus to Galle for the afternoon and loved it. Sri Lanka is such a beautiful diverse country and quite easy to travel around alone.
Now onto the incredible food....hands down the best home cooking I had in all of Sri Lanka!! The breakfast always came with a large plate of fresh cut fruit (only guesthouse to cut the fruit and give such a great selection), and the toast was always warm, which is usually not the case at any other guesthouse or restaurant. The dinners were spectacular every night no matter what was served, there was always a great selection and plenty of food to fill you up! The flavors in their dishes were diverse and different, not your typical rice and curry everywhere else with the same coconut base flavor, what Praneeth and his wife cook up is simply the best food you will have in Mirissa or anywhere else in Sri Lanka, I wouldn't stay or eat anywhere else in Mirissa!!
Whether you're going to Mirissa for a day or a week, book a room at Praneeth's guesthouse by emailing or calling him, but do it early cause it books up fast and for great reasons! You can find his contact info on www.lankaholidays.com.
