Highly recommend the hotel for a few days at Mirissa”
fabelous suite, nice beach and sunbeds, breakfast was good, located near the main street, so a little bit noisy, small resort - we liked it
A wonderful stay- little bit of luxury ”
Beautiful pool, amazing staff, great location (on a much quieter/ peaceful stretch of Mirissa beach), brilliant views and luxurious bedroom. Loved it and great value for money!
We had an amazing time at Lantern. Great facilities, with a wonderfully isolated spot of beach in front of the hotel. Great pool for young kids, and because of limited number of rooms, does not get crowded. Food was good and breakfasts were generous. All of the staff were courteous and helpful. Mendes in the restaurant was particularly warm. Great verandas in the rooms with a view of the beach and the sound of the waves.
Hidden Gem - Amazing!”
I booked two nights here at the end of a 10 day trip along the south coast of Sri Lanka, as a small treat for my girlfriend and I. We were blown away by the simple elegance and luxury qualities of the property. Nothing flash, but very well kept and maintained and attention to details were excellent. Great value for money - we work on a luxury island resort in the Maldives so are used to the best - but could not believe how reasonable this place is for what you get. The beach feels very private and is quiet. One of the nicer beaches on this coastline. We also celebrated my girlfriend's birthday and the General Manager and his staff were extremely attentive and catered to my request for a private dinner and seafood platter a little further from the restaurant. 10 out of 10, can't wait to visit again next time I am in Sri Lanka!

All I had hoped to find!”
The Lantern Boutique provides every single thing one could hope for in a beachfront hotel where you just want to relax, enjoy a beautiful deserted beach and not have to leave at all if you don't want to! The staff was attentive and very kind, the food excellent and the ambiance totally relaxing. The pool is simply divine! Wish we could return regularly!

Our staff members take their roles in our industry very seriously and try, every day, to provide that quality customer service, that our guests expect. Thank you once again, and we look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Lantern! Best Regards, Murray
A good place to chill out after a big road trip and before flying back from Colombo ”
Exercise caution as a very strong tide makes it dangerous to swim in the sea here. There is a very good pool instead. Spectacular view of the sea and coast. Only 3 hours to the airport by motorway.
Dear Tim, Thank you for taking the time to review our property, your comments are very much valued. The Mirissa beach is unfriendly for swimming due to remoteness of the location and the wilderness. However we are glad that our pool was a convincing factor for you. We can't wait to welcome you back. Best regards Lenora
Wonderful hotel ”
Spacious and clean room, facing the beach directly, amazing experience !

Beautiful hotel with private quiet beach. The food was very good and rooms excellent.”
The staff was very friendly and professional although some of them could have spoken better English to easen the communication. On the other hand a few spoke excellent english. Very high recommendation!

Thanks for being ready to tell your known ones, that ours is a great place to stay and thanks too for the amazing rating. We will look into the language training aspect of the staff. We are eagerly waiting to welcome you once again to stay with us. Best regards Lenora
Loved the Lantern. Awesome food, helpful staff, and beautiful grounds, just a 5 min tuk tuk ride to Mirissa beach, and on its own lovely, quiet beach.. Room was great and very large. Only minor issue was noise from street traffic, but it was usually quiet throughout the night so it didn't disturb our sleep. Would highly recommend.
Dear Toby, Thanks for everything, especially your overwhelming review of the property and the team. We are delighted to read that you enjoyed the room and the meals served. We appreciate your kind understanding about the traffic noise as the property is on the main road. It was a pleasure to host you and we can’t wait to welcome you back. Best regards Lenora
Beautiful beach, great facilities and excellent staff. Would stay here again. Whilst the food was very good the menu could have greater variety.
Nice and clean room with perfect view. Quiet and very beautiful beach!
Child friendly Wonderful staff Fabulous setting Great place to relax
5star treatment in a 4star hotel”
Excellent first impression that only got better over our 3days spent here (we came at in October, at the end of low season). We decided to finish a 10 day trip in Sri Lanka at the beach and were not disappointed with the Lantern. The pictures do not do the rooms justice, which were huge, modern, clean and luxuriously designed. The food was top notch gourmet, albeit very expensive. Must take a tuktuk to a swimmable beach for 2-300LKR, but we were even able to walk the 3km along the beach to the main strip, which was beautiful. The benefit of being out here is the peace and quiet. If you have the means to do so, you can stay and not leave the resort. The staff and management were ABOVE AND BEYOND, catering to every whim, and even at their busiest moments, took time to speak with us about anything-this is really where your value for money comes in. The first-class treatment was much desired after our rough-and-tumble haggling of Sri Lanka. They were even so kind as to give us a very late check out due to our 11p flight-this is a rarity even amongst high-end US/European/Asian hotels. The service is truly unparalleled. A free 15 min spa was included, although we weren't able to take advantage, and one day we missed breakfast and they brought us a fruit plate free of charge. The pool area could be updated, for a more clean-cut look, but the chair swings were still heavenly. I would definitely stay here again.
Good hotel for beach”
The hotel is right next to the beach so good relaxing holiday. Out of the Way so need to get a tut tut into Mirissa. Staff excellent as is the food but a bit expensive.
Booked for 3nights, stayed for 5nights!!!”
It is really a paradise to stay here. Everything is perfect. Staff very friendly and helpful and we felt like staying at home. The food was fantastic (EVERYTHING) and the direct view/distance to the ocean and beach is incredible. We will definitely come back!!!!! Thank you for all.
Location, food and staff!!”
Location is great, very modern rooms, great staff and a very very excellent kitchen. Especially we recommend to try the cheesecake.
This hotel was absolutely amazing!! There is nothing bad I can say about this place. The rooms were nicely decorated, spacious and all have a gorgeous view on the Indian Ocean. All rooms have a large balcony with a day bed, perfect for a glass of wine before dinner. NOTE: There is no fridge in the room but they can bring one for you upon request! The location is perfect... Close enough to the main beach of Mirissa, yet far enough to have a pristine, clean stretch of beach. And they also have a beautiful, warm swimming pool which is also kids friendly. The staff was very nice, friendly, and kind. We were there during their new year celebration and they organised a traditional dinner with all the food, and ceremonies. In addition, as we were going there for our honeymoon, they even gave us a bottle of wine, which was waiting for us in the room when we arrived. The restaurant is to die for! The food was the best I have had in Sri Lanka!! We've had several items on their menu and it was all absolutely delicious! We actually had to force ourselves to go out for dinner otherwise we would not even leave the hotel. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL!!
