South Coast » Mirissa » Mirissa Hills - The Bungalow

This charming ochre-coloured bungalow set amidst indigenous woodland has plenty of character and, despite renovations, still retains an evocative colonial atmosphere. With its three bedrooms, dining room and furnished foyer/sitting room, all within a pretty fretwork-adorned exterior, The Bungalow at Mirissa Hills exhibits a high roof, typical of other houses of its era, to keep the property well ventilated and its inhabitants cool. Surrounded by a grassy lawn, overlooking paddy fields and set on the very edge of an aromatic cinnamon plantation, the bungalow is absorbed in its surroundings and alive with the sound of birdsong, monkey chatter and crickets chirruping from dawn until dusk.    

Inside the bungalow the decor is elegant, with a style that seamlessly blends the old with the new. Whilst antique furniture and artefacts hark back to the bungalow’s early days, new bathrooms, in keeping with the style of the house, cheerfully modernise the property to ensure comfort for its occupants. Stark white walls are highlighted by contemporary artworks, most of which have been sourced in Sri Lanka, and there are a scattering of books. This comfortable, though not over-the-top accommodation is ideal for those seeking serenity close to, but not on, the beach. It would also make a perfect base for writers and artists who might like to hole themselves up for long periods of time.    

The bungalow is fully staffed and comes with a chef and live-in houseboy who take care of you during your stay.  Guests can choose to self-cater if they wish, however breakfast is included and the chef is excellent; his rice and curry should not be missed! The bungalow has been designed to afford peace and serenity to its guests so mod cons such as TVs, DVD players and internet connections will not be found here (but can be requested). For a little diversion, guests could learn about cinnamon cultivation and harvesting on the estate or head to Mirissa and Weligama bays, which both offer plenty to keep the visitor amused, from whale and dolphin watching to sailing, surfing, deep sea fishing and diving.
