Perfect for the beach!
Kiarna [TA], , London, United Kingdom

We stayed 5 nights here over New Year, the rooms were basic, with attached bathroom. The rooms were fine for spending days at the beach and just having somewhere to sleep, it was just 5 minutes walk to Mirissa Beach. The map on and Google shows Amara Guest in the wrong location, it's just a bit north of the main road. The family who run it are really lovely, you can take breakfast at anytime, the security man was also great, was always around in the evenings and made us feel very safe.

Great Place

We spent a week here and it was perfect. Pushka and Abey, the owning couple, are very welcome and helpful with everything, we honestly loved them. Rooms are decent and clean and totally sufficient as we didn't spend much time there. The guest house is located two minutes walk from the beach what is great as you'll be away from the vibrant bar and party life at night as well as from traffic at main road! All over we had everything we needed for a very fair price! Don't hesitate to stay here!

excellent guest house
Pieter J [TA], , Mirissa, Sri Lanka

I stayed a long period in this guesthouse, and it was amazing. The guest house owners are amazing! They are willing to help you with everything you ask. They even drove to the next village to buy stuff for us. Great! The rooms are nice and have a directly accessible bathroom. There is a fan with speed regulation above the bed and a big fridge in the room! The rooms have a small garden and terras. They have place to park a car. At night there is a gard to protect everything, so the gate does not have to be locked (if you want to have a drink at night...)

Would recommend this guest house to everyone.

Room Tip: The new rooms on top level are amazing!

Great place!
Kim L [TA], ,

Such a friendly couple runs this guesthouse. (She even saved us from a enormous spider.)
The room is simple, big and clean. There is even a fridge. Shower is cold (like every other guesthouse) but good water pressure.
The food: Rice and chicken curry was delicious! Fair price.
We would come back!

Decent stay in Marissa

Not far from the beach and set back from the road, this place was quiet and a good stay for 2 nights. Room and bathroom were spacious. However the room did get very very hot so be prepared. Friendly owners.

Clean, affordable accommodation

The room is very clean, comfortable and a very short walk from the beach. The ceiling fan works and is quite powerful, always nice during those hot nights. Very friendly owners. The only down side is the unpleasant odor in the area.

Good Budget Guesthouse close to Beach
Travellad... [TA], , Ontario

If you want a clean, spacious budget guest house, Amara is a good place to stay. It has no A/C or hot water but the room we had included a strong fan to keep us comfortable and we really didn't need hot water for a shower after a warm day with no A/C. The guest house is about a 2 minute walk to the main road and bus stop and 5 minute walk to the beach. Just ask the bus driver to drop you off at Udipila Junction from the main road and ask directions to Amara. This is right centre in Mirissa and not Matara as suggested in Trip Advisor.

If you have a couple of room options, look at the bathroom first as ours had water stains by the shower and the toilet did not flush properly. With a spruce up to the bathroom, some brighter light bulbs and a fresh coat of paint, the room would be quite nice. There is also a clothes line right outside as well so you can hang your wet clothes and towels and a water tap to clean your feet before entering your room. The set up is in a nice enclosed garden like setting with 5 motel type rooms. Each as a sitting area outside the front door and wifi is strong even though the main office is in the house across the street. The owners are nice and also arranged our whale watching trip cheaper than what was advertised along the main street. We had less people on our boat and while we did not get coffee, we received breakfast(juice, water and 3 breakfast pastries), lifejackets and a great view and a tuk tuk ride to the boat area as we had to get there between 6:30-7am. The walk back into town was 15 minutes afterwards and it was nice to walk after being on the boat for 3 hours. We also saw a few Blue Whales and several schools of dolphins.

Ottima sistemazione
Azzurra P [TA], , Rome, Italy

Le camere sono semplici, c'è tutto quello che serve e nella media è una delle migliori guest house che abbiamo vissuto nello Sri Lanka. Bisogna fare attenzione però a dove è ubicata la camera cercate di prendere quelle più interne possibili altrimenti rischiate, la mattina presto, di essere svegliati da qualche tuk tuk fomentato o dal tizio che vende ciambelle col suo furgoncino con casse super potenti e musichetta odiosa...I proprietari sono persone veramente uniche, cordiali disponibili alla mano e molto flessibili. I prezzi sono molto bassi e in 20 secondi si arriva sulla spiaggia, non c è concorrenza rispetto alle guest house sulla spiaggia che propongono camere simili ma con prezzi triplicati.

There are far better (and cheaper) places around in Mirissa.
Kundvagnen [TA], ,

This place may be close to the beach and all, but hey, a 3-minute walk or a 5-minute walk doesn't really matter.

The room I stayed in was not very clean and the internet router is located at the familys place across the street, so it won't reach any of the rooms. This is a common problem at a lot of guesthouses in Mirissa.

You will find better places if you take your backpack and wander further down the road.

more than a guest house
Ross1969 [TA], , Bologna, Italy

Hello everybody,
I want to recommend Amara Guest because it'm more than an ordinary guest house. The environment is excellent, with nature and silence all around...the owners treat me like a member of their family, helping me with every needs and wishes.... I was there last year in july- august and I will go there also this summer. It's a perfect location for couples and families. Thanks a lot Rossella
