“Great views, large balcony's, clean rooms”
Reviewed 27 April 2013

Great place with large rooms with dito balcony's, which have a marvelous view over the ocean. The rooms are big and very clean, great beds and nice bathroom as well. The stairs-wise-structure of the building is unique and looks beautiful from the outside, altough it doesn't have an elevator so if you're on the top floor, or going to the beautiful rooftop swimming pool, it's a nice little climb each time ;-) Very friendly staff, the sweet girl/lady in reception even brought us home made sweets during new year period, and the owner always has a nice smile for you as well.

Some minor details: the parasols on the roof were old, broken and dirty. The little private beach part opposite of the road is not the prettiest, but walk 5 minutes further and the beach is amazing.

I cant recommend this hotel enough, it's without a doubt one of the best places i've stayed in!

The rooftop pool was amazing, the views from there were incredible and you couldn't ask for a better location. The rooms are large and clean and all have a balconies with sea views! Mirissa beach is absolutely beautiful, i wish we didn't have to leave!

The staff are incredibly friendly and the manager Vipula could not do enough for us. I was feeling unwell one night and as soon as he found out, he sent someone to the next town to go and get me some coconut water (which apparently is a good ailment). He constantly went above and beyond and made our stay unforgettable.

We researched a lot of different hotels in Mirissa before deciding on Silan Mo, but we are so glad we chose to stay here. We really felt part of the Silan Mo family when we left, and we definitely will be back!

Had a 3 night stay at Silan Mo recently and could have easily stayed longer. Nice big bedrooms and bathrooms, great shower and massive balconies, each room with a sea view.
Food was spot on too, the rooftop pool lovely to relax in with great views too.
The staff could not be more helpful either, making for a perfect stay !

We had a very relaxed and comfortable 4 night stay at Silan Mo. Literally across the road from the beautiful beach. Noise from the road was barely noticeable - the lovely crash of waves is easily heard and adds to the beach atmosphere. Rooms are large and clean with large terrace (the higher you climb the better the view). Pool is great. Even the beach towels were big and fluffy. We had excellent curry and rice every night- each time differently prepared.
But mostly we were overwhelmed by the staff in general and by Mr. Vipula who cared for us and our special needs in a simple, genuine warm way - it really made our visit.

Just had two great days at Silan Mo.

The hotel isn't at the beach, but very close and has its own beach beds and umbrellas. The hotel is 6 storeys high (no elevator) is build into the hill side. The view gets better and better as you move up and the roof top pool is just the icing on the cake.

The rooms are modernised and has very modern use of cement and light colors. Being a Scandinavian I really enjoyed the interior, but some looking for traditional Sri Lankan rooms may be disappointed.

Friendly staff and a decent breakfast.

Finally, had two days at Unawatuna and two at Mirissa. For me Mirissa is the far better.

Room Tip: The view gets better the higher in the building, but there is no elevator.

Sometimes you just meet people that will go so far out of their way to help you out that it is incredible. Vipula (manager) and the staff at the Silan Mo Hotel are absolutely amazing in every way. A big thumbs up to them and the genuine way in which they actually engage and care about their guests.

The hotel is lovely, with big clean simple rooms, huge sea facing balconies (every room!!!) and a fantastic roof top swimming pool and seating area (tip- the sunset views are unreal). You are so far from the road that you barely notice it, apart from a distant line of truck lights and the occasional horn.

We had both lunch and breakfast here, and would highly recommend the local cuisine (we had milk rice, samba, egg hoppers, chicken curries and rottis - some of this was not even on the menu, the staff were just so keen to make our stay everything we wanted it to be).

The beach is a 5 metre walk over the road, and a 5 min walk from the surf (along the beautiful Mirissa Beach). A great location, well priced for the comfort you get, AWESOME staff and i would highly recommend this place to everyone.

I will be back Vipula... :) thanks for everything.

Room Tip: Ask for the Rottis and chicken curry by the pool. Yummmmmy
