Pros: Comfortable room with a short walk to the beach. Staff were friendly. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful - a choice between Western and Sri Lankan (we chose Sri Lankan) with fruit and coffee. We would have stayed here longer but property was fully booked!
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The stay was fantastic. we were lucky to find a beautiful villa. It was clean, spacious and surrounded by birds chirping. One a day you will also find peacock on the property. the breakfast was fantastic. including the fruits they gave along was so delicious. the only problem is the don't serve lunch or dinner but never mind every room of theirs was beautifully decorated. I was accompanied by my parents for the trip and they are normally very fussy but they loved the place. The beach was also very close to the villa. perfect stay. 10/10 for this place. the owner was also very kind. thanks for the memorable holiday.
Cons: everything was great. you will fall in love with the place. there is nothing that u will not like about the place.

Pros: Lovely environment and staff!
Cons: Lovely but wasnt a bar
9.2 Excellent
Pros: We loved our stay at Peacock villas. The rooms were immaculate, breakfasts brilliant, WiFi and air con very reliable - which we’re finding is a rare thing in Sri Lanka. It really is an oasis of calm and the family who run it are lovely and beyond kind. It was also closer to the beach than I imagined, as there is a shortcut down a shady track alongside a river, which makes for a lovely 5 min walk. There is also a fantastic rotti ( Dewminj’s) place just 2 mins away from the hotel which is worth checking out. They have thought of everything here to make your stay comfortable, and have helpful things like beach towels and water refilling stations. Oh and peacocks of course! Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and made of a great start to our trip. Thank you peacock villas!
Cons: Nothing

Sri Sharavi Beach Villas & Spa - Mirissa - Bedroom

9.4 Excellent (239 reviews)

Featured amenities include express check-in, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: Service was great, views were stunning. We loved the pool, it's huge so never feels too busy. Food was delicious at all meal times.
Cons: Either the room was too warm or the bed/mattress wasn't the best, as we found that out of all the hotels on our trip around Sri Lanka we probably slept the worst here.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything, this was one of our favourite places in Sri Lanka! Excellent facilities including the 40m pool looking out to the beach. Lovely room with an incredibly comfortable bed and soft linen. Morning yoga available, delicious breakfast and such helpful and friendly staff. Out of the centre of Mirissa but only a short tuk tuk ride away.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: We stayed at Three Gables on the last day of our trip. Upon early check in, we were greeted by staff, provided with ice towels and refreshments (fresh melon juice, very tasty). Our room was modest (standard w/ ocean view), however it had everything you need, including iron with ironing board! Spotlessly clean, and bed sheets crispy clean. All toiletries (soap, shampoo, shower gel) were by Spa Ceylon, which I discovered later at the airport duty free while stocking up on these luxury ayurvedic ointments. Needless to say, the location is excellent, I believe the best on the strip. Private beach with some great views. A very short drive (2 mins) from Mirissa beach. We rented a scooter on Mirissa for just $5 a day and explored the area. Breakfast was huge, a la carte order from the available options in the menu, but we were eventually served almost everything! Now, to the unfortunate part. My husband was already feeling unwell. I suspected fever and asked Dinuka for a thermometer, but he/villa didn’t have it. Dinuka immediately offered to go and get one, which I refused as my hub was seemingly coping just a little unwell. Half an hour later, knock on the door and there is Dinuka with a brand new thermometer in his hands. He refused to take money for it, insisting this was just part of the service, even though I eventually kept it. I took the temperature and it was 104F/40C. From then on, Dinuka was our personal nurse, guide, counsellor and what not. He called the ambulance, he escorted us to the hospital when the fever wouldn’t go down, he arranged for our money to be exchanged, he spent what seemed to be 24/7 attending to all our needs, even though I know he was as attentive and committed to all other guests of the fully booked property. No doubt, he loves his job and he really falls in love with every guest, and Dinuka, we do love you back!
Cons: A little more sound insulation would be a plus, we could clearly hear our neighbors from next door.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: It is a quiet, small, cozy, and beautifully designed complex of a few villas with an amazing swimming pool and a beach just a few meters away. The best place we stayed in during our trip to SriLanka.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: My wife and I stayed at Imagine for 5 nights and it was the perfect way to end our 2 weeks in Sri Lanka. The vibe is very chilled and perfect if you just want to lay around and relax. The room was very clean and spacious, and the staff were very friendly. We ate at the restaraunt 2 nights and they were really delicious meals, and the breakfasts are amazing and big. Highly recommend to anyone to stay here.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: If you are looking for private and relaxing beach vacation in Sri Lanka, imagine villa could be the perfect choice. Thoughtful staff, clean room, private beach, nice swimming pool and soundings..... Food is amazing and much better than our expectation. Our journey in Mirrisa was too short, would like to stay longer next time!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Everything!! Beautiful place, friendly staff. Lovely owner who makes a point to come to you to say good morning every morning at breakfast. The beach is mostly private, some locals use it but they were friendly.
Cons: Nothing, wished we could have stayed an extra night!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Staff were very friendly. Room was large and had good A/C Wonderful breakfast Nice pool
Cons: My room wasn't cleaned during my stay. Location was out of town
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Spending three weeks in Sri Lanka and moving from hotel to hotel every one to two days, we spent two days here. Fantastic! This hotel is run by Marnix from Belgium and his customer service and attention to detail is of the best European standards. Yes, it is a small bit away from Mirissa but RS350 will get you in there in a Tuk Tuk. The Villa is located on a vast expanse of what can only be called deserted beaches which to me, more than makes up for its location. You wont go wrong with a stay here.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was great. While booking we had some doubts on where to book and if the resort would meet our expectations, but Imagine managed to exceed our expectations in every aspects. The kindness and professionalism of the staff was top notch. We booked without any meal options but ended up deciding to eat at the property not only breakfasts but also dinners. With its 10 rooms, this resort is planned as a mansion with personalized service. Design of the place was also another great aspect. Every small detailed was thought through. We were extremely happy with what we received after a stay of 5 days. Wish we had more time to stay at this property. We'd definitely stay here again if we ever end up going back to Sri Lanka.
Cons: Beach in front of the hotel is in theory okay for swimming, especially due to the natural pools formed by rocks. But it did not look very inviting to us, so we ended up staying by the pool listening to the sound of waves rather than swimming in the ocean. It was, though, not an issue for us at all, and there's nothing the hotel can do about it. It's just a heads up for those who'd like to be able to swim in front of the hotel. On the other hand, Mirissa beach is only a 5 min tuktuk ride away and it's a very beautiful beach. I believe there are also some other beaches even closer but we did not visit them.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Super luxuries place with really dedicated and kind staff. Owner was there and we enjoyed a good talk. (Dutch owner) Breakfast was super nice and the setting on ocean and the gorgeous pool can’t be beaten. Good value for money. A bit of a steal actually!!

5.8 Okay
Pros: Central location
Cons: Cleanliness
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We love sour stay at Mirissa Cocoon and so did our 1 year old son! So much so that we extended our 2 night stay to 5, and everyone we spoke to had seemed to extend their stay also. The brothers who own and run this place and sweet and it’s evident they are genuinely nice guys. They welcome their guests and help them with whatever they need. Our room was extremely clean when we arrived which was so refreshing to us! The room looked brand new with modern features and a lovely bathroom. We had a family room with 2 large beds and there was enough space still for our 1 year old son to run around and play to his hearts content. The space outside the rooms with tables and chairs was lovely for breakfast time (we used the kitchen to prepare meals which was super handy!) and when it was too hot, we put a little inflatable pool for our son to splash around in out there which was fantastic! Iresh arranged a taxi for us to our next destination and was brilliant with bringing the price down for us aswell so we can’t thank him and his family enough for a wonderful stay and for being so helpful.
Cons: Nothing we can’t fault it.

7.1 Good
Pros: That is was small and service was excellent.
Cons: The location was not on a swim marble beach area thus I felt I missed out. The food was pretty disappointing considered we had paid a premium price for our stay.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice location directly at the beach, very friendly and helpful staff, very spacious and clean room. Due to bad weather before my arrival the cabanas and pool were out of order, but I was allowed to use the pool at the resort next door and they even would have set up a cabana just for me when I asked.
Cons: Unfortunately there was construction work going on during the whole time of my stay, but then I was there during the low season and repair has to be done at some point. So next time I‘d ask in advance if they‘re planning to do any repairs during that time period.
7.1 Good
Pros: Small six unit hotel on the beach with great views of ocean. Nice pool & plenty of lounge chairs. Nice bar & good restaurant; terrific meals.
Cons: The street noise. When in the dining room or at the pool or in your room, you cannot escape busy street traffic noise & sometimes the odor of exhaust fumes. Big turn off.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very attentive staff, beautifully presented and tasty food. Lovely pool which is long enough to swim properly. We were upgraded to a Suite which was fabulous. A tuk tuk to Mirissa Beach about 3kms away costs 350rps and there are loads of restaurants on the beach there. On our last night one of the staff took us to see a turtle laying eggs on the beach just by the hotel.

Pros: Location near the beach. Only a short walk. Also away from the busy main road. Size of the room, balcony, ceiling height was great. Felt very open and relaxed. Food was very good too. They made fresh as per our order. Just need to allow sufficient time. Above all, the staff and Chanaka himself are great hosts. They tried best to make our stay as comfortable as possible.
Cons: Some details within the property need attention but not major issues. Had a chat with the owner as he is personally involved in serving guests. He is very well aware of some improvements to be made and is working on them. If you are staying on the second floor, there is no lift. However, they staff was so helpful with carrying our luggage and other needs that we didn't feel much of problem.

We had a perfect time here to relax after long days of backpacking Sri Lanka and sleeping in small hostels. It is very quiet and just outside the noisy Mirissa but still very close to the beach (less than 2min walking) and most attractions (restaurants, bars, main street) and services. The rooms are big, comfortable and well equipped. We didn't eat breakfast, lunch or dinner here during our stay so we cannot tell about the food, but everything else was perfect for us.

7.0 Good
Pros: Owner (Thusath) was very kind and helpful. For a reasonable fee he took us on a short trip to the turtle sanctuary as well as some souvenir shops on the way back. Furthermore, he made a stop in Weligama to help me buy a local SIM card and also helped us with some money exchange. Awon is so beautifully decorated and you can truly see the owner's heart and passion for what he does.
Cons: The ants started moving into the room after day 1 and there was a lizzard in the corner for the entire 2 nights stay.
5.0 Okay
Pros: They are friendly.
Cons: The bed sheets were untidy. They have only glass walls for the room without proper curtains so we couldn't stay at comfort as the privacy has been disturbed. The bathroom water flow is also very slow with poor facilities. On the whole it did not meet the standard of OYO rooms as we expected.
7.5 Good
Pros: Good location. Friendly owner.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Spacious, clean rooms in a quiet location on a stunning and secluded stretch of beach. The staff were exceptional and the food was incredibly good value.
Cons: With a little effort the garden and pool area could be so much nicer, not a complaint but something the hotel might consider.
7.1 Good
Pros: The place is just few meters from the main road but it is quite there and also separated by big walls so the privacy on their garden is best. Isolated place.
Cons: The swimming pool is quite small and mainly there were families with kids so impossible to swim. The pool is basically for kids. The restaurant is not really good but there are cooking all kind of meals. I had once a fish which was on one part raw and once on breakfast burned toast breads and vegetable curry was very ridiculous for the price (compare so many places where I ate). My room was huge, perfectly clean with a fan and also an air conditioner. The TV didn't work and some stuff in a bathroom were broken. Also I had windows to a neighborhood with so many noises. Everything is in USD currency. Their beach at the house is not good and not possible to even go to water.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The service and the staff were really good they deserve five star ! Location is also perfect!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Really good breakfast! Coffe is very good! Staff friendly and very helpful. Great ocean views and the Wi-Fi works well.
7.1 Good
Pros: The staff are great, they try to help with what they have because they have limited resources. The Manager meets you, gives you advice on where to go and what to do. Gives the personal touch that is needed in a hotel. Charm of a colonial Villa that has huge potential to turn into a gem.
Cons: Rooms need to be updated, bed linen covers where coming off and quality of bed linen plus towels are not good. No TV and no Wi-Fi in the bedrooms. Some corridor lights had no bulbs and they didn't know how to operate the room safes. While staying there, the government was improving the breakwater by using Large machinery and where creating a lot of noise and smell pollution until 4.30pm. Was not notified at reservation point by booking.com or a msg from the owner. I went there for peace and quiet, not for all the noise pollution created by that machinery. Management only changed my room but got no reduction in the room tariff for the inconvenience caused. For the room tariff I paid for, I expected better. Also breakfast was nothing special.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The location is spectacular. The staff are all helpful, smiley and responsive. It's a lovely old building with a lot of character.
Cons: It would be better to have WiFi in all areas. One of us found the bed a bit hard.
7.0 Good
Pros: Location is stunning and they do a good job maximizing its value. Shower in the room was excellent. Staff are friendly (but not overly helpful either). Free water refills was a lovely touch.
Cons: Lack of amenities in the room and bathroom. You can't charge around $80 per night and then not provide shampoo, body lotion, etc. Only a small bar of hand soap for the wash basin was provided, nothing for the shower. Also, if you don't tell them in advance, then they won't clean your room which is sometimes inconvenient if you have a busy day.
6.0 Good
Pros: There is actually no beach in front of a hotel. The beaches to the left and to the right are however very nice and not far away. The internet is only in common area. In the common area there are sunbeds. I saw a ratsnake in the grass.
Cons: They were building a road between the beaches to the left and to the right from the hotel during our stay, so it was very loud. We had no wifi in our room. The bathroom is not very clean, there was no hot water. The room has to be renovated. The safety box was not properly working so we got the only key from it.
1.0 Poor
Pros: Good location. Close to parrot rock.
Cons: The day to day staff were friendly enough in terms of helping us with our bags and sorting breakfast however as soon as something goes wrong the manager in particular is difficult to get help from. For us, our engagement ring went missing from the safe in our room while we were out for the day. We called and called and called throughout the remainder of our trip asking for a statement saying they were unable to cover the cost of the ring ($8000 NZD!!! for insurance purposes) but every time we spoke to the manager he was nasty and uncooperative. Insurance will no longer pay us out because we we did not receive this and a special plan for a special person was ultimately ruined.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Charming hostel with colonial architecture and a remarkable view on Parrot Rock Bridge. Very helpful staff.
Cons: Nothing
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very nice accommodations with wonderful views of the ocean. It was very close to main beach but still quiet and peaceful and a feeling of more privacy.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: The stay was fantastic. we were lucky to find a beautiful villa. It was clean, spacious and surrounded by birds chirping. One a day you will also find peacock on the property. the breakfast was fantastic. including the fruits they gave along was so delicious. the only problem is the don't serve lunch or dinner but never mind every room of theirs was beautifully decorated. I was accompanied by my parents for the trip and they are normally very fussy but they loved the place. The beach was also very close to the villa. perfect stay. 10/10 for this place. the owner was also very kind. thanks for the memorable holiday.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: We loved our stay at Peacock villas. The rooms were immaculate, breakfasts brilliant, WiFi and air con very reliable - which we’re finding is a rare thing in Sri Lanka. It really is an oasis of calm and the family who run it are lovely and beyond kind. It was also closer to the beach than I imagined, as there is a shortcut down a shady track alongside a river, which makes for a lovely 5 min walk. There is also a fantastic rotti ( Dewminj’s) place just 2 mins away from the hotel which is worth checking out. They have thought of everything here to make your stay comfortable, and have helpful things like beach towels and water refilling stations. Oh and peacocks of course! Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and made of a great start to our trip. Thank you peacock villas!
Cons: Nothing

7.1 Good
Pros: That is was small and service was excellent.
Cons: The location was not on a swim marble beach area thus I felt I missed out. The food was pretty disappointing considered we had paid a premium price for our stay.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice location directly at the beach, very friendly and helpful staff, very spacious and clean room. Due to bad weather before my arrival the cabanas and pool were out of order, but I was allowed to use the pool at the resort next door and they even would have set up a cabana just for me when I asked.
Cons: Unfortunately there was construction work going on during the whole time of my stay, but then I was there during the low season and repair has to be done at some point. So next time I‘d ask in advance if they‘re planning to do any repairs during that time period.
7.1 Good
Pros: Small six unit hotel on the beach with great views of ocean. Nice pool & plenty of lounge chairs. Nice bar & good restaurant; terrific meals.
Cons: The street noise. When in the dining room or at the pool or in your room, you cannot escape busy street traffic noise & sometimes the odor of exhaust fumes. Big turn off.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very attentive staff, beautifully presented and tasty food. Lovely pool which is long enough to swim properly. We were upgraded to a Suite which was fabulous. A tuk tuk to Mirissa Beach about 3kms away costs 350rps and there are loads of restaurants on the beach there. On our last night one of the staff took us to see a turtle laying eggs on the beach just by the hotel.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location near the beach. Only a short walk. Also away from the busy main road. Size of the room, balcony, ceiling height was great. Felt very open and relaxed. Food was very good too. They made fresh as per our order. Just need to allow sufficient time. Above all, the staff and Chanaka himself are great hosts. They tried best to make our stay as comfortable as possible.
Cons: Some details within the property need attention but not major issues. Had a chat with the owner as he is personally involved in serving guests. He is very well aware of some improvements to be made and is working on them. If you are staying on the second floor, there is no lift. However, they staff was so helpful with carrying our luggage and other needs that we didn't feel much of problem.

7.9 Good
Pros: - Location - perfect, like a min or two from the beach - Staff were friendly - our room #46 was a good size room - WiFi - the best we had in Sri Lanka (the room had its own router)
Cons: Ants - there were ants everywhere and they got into my backpack Bathroom - needs some ventilation, looks mouldy.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staffs are amazingly kind and friendly, always ready to help no matter what time of the day (or night) it is, always smiling. We had a perfect time here to relax after long days of backpacking Sri Lanka and sleeping in small hostels. It is very quiet and just outside the noisy Mirissa but still very close to the beach (less than 2min walking) and most attractions (restaurants, bars, main street) and services. The rooms are big, comfortable and well equipped. We didn't eat breakfast, lunch or dinner here during our stay so we cannot tell about the food, but everything else was perfect for us.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: This is a good property for a reasonable price, very close to the beach. The room was big and clean and beds very comfortable. The owner is a very nice and helpful man.
Cons: This is not a hotel but for the price it's OK.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: Service was great, views were stunning. We loved the pool, it's huge so never feels too busy. Food was delicious at all meal times.
Cons: Either the room was too warm or the bed/mattress wasn't the best, as we found that out of all the hotels on our trip around Sri Lanka we probably slept the worst here.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything, this was one of our favourite places in Sri Lanka! Excellent facilities including the 40m pool looking out to the beach. Lovely room with an incredibly comfortable bed and soft linen. Morning yoga available, delicious breakfast and such helpful and friendly staff. Out of the centre of Mirissa but only a short tuk tuk ride away.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: We stayed at Three Gables on the last day of our trip. Upon early check in, we were greeted by staff, provided with ice towels and refreshments (fresh melon juice, very tasty). Our room was modest (standard w/ ocean view), however it had everything you need, including iron with ironing board! Spotlessly clean, and bed sheets crispy clean. All toiletries (soap, shampoo, shower gel) were by Spa Ceylon, which I discovered later at the airport duty free while stocking up on these luxury ayurvedic ointments. Needless to say, the location is excellent, I believe the best on the strip. Private beach with some great views. A very short drive (2 mins) from Mirissa beach. We rented a scooter on Mirissa for just $5 a day and explored the area. Breakfast was huge, a la carte order from the available options in the menu, but we were eventually served almost everything! Now, to the unfortunate part. My husband was already feeling unwell. I suspected fever and asked Dinuka for a thermometer, but he/villa didn’t have it. Dinuka immediately offered to go and get one, which I refused as my hub was seemingly coping just a little unwell. Half an hour later, knock on the door and there is Dinuka with a brand new thermometer in his hands. He refused to take money for it, insisting this was just part of the service, even though I eventually kept it. I took the temperature and it was 104F/40C. From then on, Dinuka was our personal nurse, guide, counsellor and what not. He called the ambulance, he escorted us to the hospital when the fever wouldn’t go down, he arranged for our money to be exchanged, he spent what seemed to be 24/7 attending to all our needs, even though I know he was as attentive and committed to all other guests of the fully booked property. No doubt, he loves his job and he really falls in love with every guest, and Dinuka, we do love you back!
Cons: A little more sound insulation would be a plus, we could clearly hear our neighbors from next door.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: It is a quiet, small, cozy, and beautifully designed complex of a few villas with an amazing swimming pool and a beach just a few meters away. The best place we stayed in during our trip to SriLanka.
