Calm Rest guest house is a nice little place. The rooms are clean and the staff friendly. We arrived at 9:00 am and requested for an early check in, which we readily got. Breakfast is good. The fruits they serve are refreshing in a humid place like Mirissa. The guest house has a juice bar adjoining the rooms. Fresh juices...

We have stayed here before and really enjoyed our visit, however this time it felt a little run down. They were completing lots of painting so this may be why as December and January are the peak months in Sri Lanka, so we may have visited before the annual spruce up! The lads in the guest house are as friendly...

Calm Rest is a peaceful but chilled place, suited for any type of guest. Indeed, you are only 1min away walk from Mirissa beach, or a 10min tuk tuk drive to Weligama (surf reputed beach). There are many small restaurants along the beach, as well as a bit of nightlife time to time. The rooms are correct and have Ac...

The best thing about Calm Rest is their location. They have weired system to check in - its in the "living room" of the owners, in the first moment we didn't find this place at all. Beside this we could not find more good things about. Onyl with help from the staff we were able to lock our rooms /...

We do not put dirty sheets what so ever. In this hot month March this is the cheapest price you can get an air conditioning room with breakfast. I don't think that anyone will ever find a better room than you get from here in Mirissa. Your booking was for US$37.80 per night. If you think that is an expensive...
