We loved our stay here! All the staff, especially Dinuka and Suresh were so helpful. One night we stayed at the villa for dinner to find they had set up an intimate candle lit meal for us on the beach, it was beautiful. The staff are on hand 24/7 to make your stay as pleasurable as possible and are keen to make any ammendments that would please customers. I would definitely stay here if I return to Sri Lanka. There is so much attention to detail; my favourite was the chocolates with a quote by our pillows each night. Thank you for an amazing experience.
I loved everything, if I had to say something I would say the portion sizes were very generous and we felt bad leaving food.

I’ve traveled a lot around the world, but never stayed in a place like this, an hotel with only 4 rooms on one of the most gorgeous beaches of Sri Lanka, attentive staff and good service, delicious food, infinity pool all for yourself... everything was great, the only reason to say anything negative about Three Gables is because I would like to keep it all to myself ;) thank you guys, we hope to be back soon!

We immediately fell in love with this truly private and quiet oasis. The location is superb, away from the crowded center and beach of Mirissa. The villa itself offers beautiful sea views and the room was a dream too. We booked the deluxe ocean view room and really enjoyed the privacy and comfiness. Also the food is delicious, from breakfast to dinner. But what stands out most is the amazing service - Dinuka and his team are fullfilling your wishes at any time, so you always feel cared for. We can just confirm all the positive reviews and highly recommend this place to everyone searching for best service within a luxurios atmosphere!

A memorable stay in a luxury home front of the beach. Dinuka and his team are very well intentioned. All the dinner at the restaurant were very enjoyable !!
I can´t  understand how Jesper post a bad review on the hotel !! I can’t see any bad things in Three Gables.
Thanks Dinuka
See You Charlotte & Francois

24/7 Dinuka and team are working hard to make you feel like a rockstar in paradise. Only 4 beedrooms and the probably best archtictural gem we‘ve every stayed while travelling made us feel like living in one‘s very own house on a superb stretch of beach only 5mins away from Mirissa. Fancy grilled fish for dinner? ...will be served on the beach lightened up with torches. Sunset drinks? hop in a tuk tuk and 2-3 cool places (eg doctor‘s house, coconut tree hill) are just a 3 min tuk tuk drive away! or simply have the staff serve you the good old Lion Lager 2meters away from the waves ...they do go the last mile for you!
There should be more properties like this around the world!

We had a very special stay at the three gables hotel! I was celebrating my birthday and the hotel staff arranged a beautiful dinner at the beach. Thank you so much dinuka for your efforts!

Three gables villa is a beautiful place to stay. From the architecture of the villa itself to the lovely private beach.
What makes this place exceptional is the people. Dinuka and his team welcomed us in and took great care of us. From ensuring that we had everything we needed to helping find my daughters cuddly toy that had been pinched by a beach dog :-). His recommendations of places to go were all excellent. I can't sing his praises enough - friendly, charming and attentive but without being intrusive. My wife was in tears when we had to leave.
Thank you for everything, especially the complimentary last night meal on the beach and the thoughtful presents you gave us.
Sri Lankan breakfast was so tasty - miss this start to the day! Fresh coconuts brought to us on the sun loungers and a chance to try toddy (coconut wine).
They also catered for my 1 year old daughter at no extra charge. She loved the food and all the attention she got. Much appreciated.
Room bright and clean with good amenities. Fantastic pool with great view of the sea and beach.
It is in a great location that gives you the option of peace and quiet to relax if you so wish but the town of Mirissa is only a short tuk tuk ride away if you fancy a bit of nightlife.
Oh and if all that's not enough - turtles coming to lay their eggs on the beach at night. Magical!
I hope that we will be able to stay here next year.
Only minor point would be that I would go for a Ocean view room the next time.

Our stay at three gables was incredible; the resort is beautiful, the beach quiet and clean, the food delicious. Definitely recommend staying here if you’re looking to relax - easily accessible to the attractions of Mirissa but removed enough for a quieter, more secluded feel. The rooms and overall villa are beautifully designed by a very popular architect. The daily breakfasts with an ocean view were the best way to start each morning.
But what really sets three gables apart is the service. Three gables has just 4 rooms but a staff of ~4-5 people so the service was quick and helpful. Dinuka and his entire team are amazing. Dinuka is the kind of person that was incredibly kind and inviting but was also very professional. We hope to someday meet him again. It was a great experience; he would tell us all about the history and culture of Sri Lanka and gave us suggestions on what we could see, do, and eat in Mirissa and the area.
The overall staff is friendly, kind, helpful - they went above and beyond to make our stay one we’ll remember forever.
We’ll definitely be back!
 

A place to feel the taste of life. Architecture, the warm ocean, sunrises, sunsets and us.
The face and heart of this place is Dinuka. He has an amazing talent to create the best atmosphere for the guest and about the guest. Including your individual preferences and wishes.
In the hotel - On this piece of space - the flavour of the whole Sri Lanka is collected. Here you will find a local cuisine in a manner of royal exquisite way. Here is a palm tree with a drink in a flower by the pool. Here are ripening eggs of turtles 5 steps from an umbrella with sunbeds, and lamps from Dambulla. And so much more, when you are open to it. Dinuka will prompt and help you swim with turtles, see the old town in Galle.
He has a fantastic ability to create invisible preventive care for you and give you a feeling of complete safety and comfort.
And also many thanks to the well-coordinated, and attentive work of the whole team. And the chef of Kitchen Malak, and Suresh, and those whom I know only by sight.
A special pleasure to use ultra-fast uninterrupted Internet. As well as cleaning the room twice a day. And a note for the night and sweet compliments.
This is when for Dinuk’s question "are you happy?" the only answer is yes.
And the merit in this is common and at the same time personal from each employee - from the architect to the keeper of the spirit of this hotel.

Amazing location, even better hospitality! The host Dinuka is amazing and goes far and beyond to make sure guests are extremely comfortable. The private beach is beautiful and quiet. Perfect get-away!

A fantastic hotel with exceptional staff. In particular Dinuka who not only made our stay more enjoyable but was also very helpful and re-assuring when we had travel plan worries due to flights potentially being cancelled, curfews and other chaos going outside in the world.
The hotel is great and the pool very well maintained. The easy walk down the handful of stairs on the private beach was excellent. Nice to enjoy the beach with peace and quiet.
The food we had was excellent as were the drinks.
Thanks so much for everything, the whole team are excellent.
All the best,

I cannot begin to describe what a hidden paradise this place is.  Exquisite food, unbelievable hospitality and stunning architecture.  We cannot fault these guys and for the first time in our lives- are looking for a time to come back to the same place.  We've travelled the world and nowhere has made us feel as at home, valued and royal as this place.  Dinuka, Nalaka and the manager come straight from the highest standards of hospitality we've encountered- the food is Michelin starred and the breakfast is un.real.

Three Gables Boutique Villa is a true gem in Sri Lanka. On the most pristine & quiet beach, this villa offers tranquility and peace to enjoy the beauty of Mirissa Beach. There are only 4 rooms meaning it truly feels like a home away from home after only a couple of hours!
Dinuka who is the butler for the villa takes incredible pride in his work and is on hand to help you with anything at all any time of the day or night. A lovely young gentleman.
We spent Christmas 2019 here and I cannot wait to return some day!
There is nothing not to like!

Contemporary Bawa-esq design (one of his Assistants designed the space), remarkable and caring staff, the view and privacy of the pool and beach and the food....wow. Without doubt, the highlight of our SL adventure. THANKYOU Dinuka and gang. And importantly, see you again.

This was one of the most exceptional hotel experiences that I’ve ever had. My trip would not have been the same without the wonderful staff at the Three Gables.

All other reviews pretty much say it all- this place is absolute heaven. The views, private beach, the architecture, the staff and service are beyond exceptional. Dinuka, Kasun and team made sure we had everything we needed- they arranged a scooter hire and transfer back to the airport for a flight at midnight. This meant we were able to leave our bags at the hotel for the day and use the outside shower to freshen up before we were ready to leave that evening. Dinuka in particular is a star and really does make the experience here all the more special, as he is there for you 24/7; I loved how upon noticing I had a bad cough, he made me a special herbal tea twice, which helped immensely. The breakfast offering was delicious and plentiful, as was dinner. Christmas Eve was particularly wonderful, as they arranged for us to dine on the beach with a large bonfire. My only recommendation would be for more candles, given that most of the tables had to use their phone torch lights too see their food, but it was beautiful and romantic! :) Just a couple of notes for other travellers; we weren’t able to swim in our section of the beach as the waves were quite rough, but you could if your walked further down. There are also only 6 sun-beds from what I could gather and 8 guests in the hotel when we stayed, luckily wasn’t an issue for us, as we were out and about during the day. Overall it was everything you could expect from a 5-star hotel and more. It was a relaxing and peaceful end to our honeymoon in Sri Lanka. Thank you again to the whole team at Three Gables! We will definitely be back xx

The staff, led by Dinuka, were amazing. Attentive, yet giving us space to enjoy the calm of the entire property. Three Gables Villa is a must stay if you are looking for luxury in Mirissa, we will come back!

It’s a gorgeous villa on the beach with a lovely pool, nice rooms and amazing staff. Everything about it is amazing and Dinuka and his teams’ hospitality is unparalleled.

We absolutely loved the three gables. The staff were so friendly and attentative, we could not have wished for more. They make this place very very special. This place is a little haven where you can relax and recharge. Beach is beautiful, beds are comfortable, food is absolutely delicious and the service you receive is unbelievable. Stop looking and get booking!

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!

The accommodation was just great, something very special. Everything was brand new, the room was very modern. The property is located on a private beach which was very nice and quiet, but was rather unsuitable for swimming due to the high waves. But because of the grandiose pool, that was easy to cope with. The best thing about the property was the very attentive service. The team already knew what you could use. Among other things, we were repeatedly taken a coconut from the palm and served fresh. The food was also delicious and fresh. Our room was cleaned and tidied up several times a day. Our highlight was our dinner on the beach with a campfire, which was specially organized at our request. Many thanks to Dinuka and his team for the nice days!

Villa au top, avec vue magnifique ! Tout est exceptionnel, plage privée ! Le service était au top! Le personne s’occupe de tout et un grand merci à Dinuka qui était au top

This was a really good place! They took care of us. Helped us with everything we needed. Would recommend!

Lucky enough to have stayed at this amazing Rare 5 diamond star boutique hotel.
Everything was amazing from the welcome with Asry to the room and cleanliness with just the most spectacular views of the private pool and pristine beach
Dinuka (I call him Walter) was just an amazing soul and will ensure everything you require is done and catered for. The chef is an amazing cool and wow spectacular dishes and flavors. The team are there to assist anytime of day And I would recommend this place to anyone coming to Sri Lanka. Actually it’s a must in Asia

We have just driven away from this stunning villa where we spent 4 nights at the end of our 2 week holiday to Sri Lanka. Words will never be able to fully express the amazing experience we had at this Villa. When we arrived we were greeted by Asry, the Villa Manager with the biggest smile and warmest welcome - we instantly knew our time here would be awesome. After checking in we were introduced to Dinuka - the Villa butler - who also had the nicest smile and welcoming personality. Within no time at all we came to see that Dinuka was so much more than a butler - he was so passionate about making sure his guests were so well looked after and He was very attentive to our needs and always made sure we were happy - which we were 24/7. Nothing was ever an issue for Dinuka to organize. As well as an amazing host, he was a fantastic explainer of local knowledge and history and suggested good places for us to see and do. We now consider Dinuka a life long friend and we miss him already.

The villa itself was simply stunning. The location, the view, the rooms were a great size and the whole villa was very tastefully decorated. The breakfast every morning was so fresh and delicious and the meals we had at night were the same. The villa chef was sensational. Dinuka and the whole team were such hard workers in keeping the villa clean always.

Three Gables Villa was by far the best villa we have ever stayed and we will be back to see our Three Gables family one day.

Where do we begin! When initially looking at places to stay in Mirissa we were fooled by the professional pictures as the real-life traveller ones did not match the same quality, but when we came across Three Gables, the professional AND traveller photos matched so I made sure we booked our stay here as it looked idyllic. On arrival, we were greeted by the staff and offered a welcome drink as we checked in. As we sat in the main lobby area we were surrounded by this beautifully designed hotel and also greeted by the amazing sea view and what was essentially a private beach. It was at this moment we knew we were not going to be disappointed by Three Gables. Everywhere was exceptionally clean and our room was great. We had a wonderful view across the hotel including the pool and sea, and it was cleaned daily. Every single detail of the room and overall hotel areas were stunning and it felt like we were living in luxury. The food was delicious and so fresh, we particularly enjoyed our traditional Sri Lankan breakfast, something you must try! Special shout out to Thilina for taking us to Coconut Tree Hill to watch the sunset and for all your kindness and generosity. And, last but not least (saving the best 'til last)... our main man, Dinuka! The most friendly and genuine man we've ever met. Dinuka had such a commitment to ensuring we had a good time. From his amazing service skills, diligence, his patience with our beer requests (we loved a good Lion beer in the pool!), no request was too much! His local knowledge of where to go out and what to see added to one of the best holidays we've ever had. Dinuka, you are a true asset to Three Gables and we hope to see you soon for a Lion, our friend! I have never left a hotel or country that leaves me wanting to come back again as much as Sri Lanka, Three Gables and Dinuka. We will bring more of our crazy family and friends next time! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Farrell and Lucy.

There was absolutely nothing that we didn't like, only the fact we had to eventually leave!

We stayed at Three Gables for two nights of our Honeymoon in Sri Lanka. We had no idea what to expect when we booked Three Gables but it turned out to be one of the best places we have ever stayed (and we travel a lot). The boutique hotel is modern, beautiful and right on the beach. We stayed on an ocean view room which was big, clean and comfortable.  The service we experienced at Three Gables far exceeded anywhere else we have stayed - Dinuka and Asri were so professional and helpful and went beyond their call of duty to assist us; Asri continued to check in with us to see if we needed any help and arranged for us to see some things we wouldn't have been able to without him, and this was all after we had already left Three Gables. And the food - wow!! The breakfasts and dinners were huge, and they have an incredibly talented chef who prepared the two of our best dinners in our overall stay in Sri Lanka. We cannot recommend this place enough - you will not make a mistake. Wishing Three Gables all the best for the future.
 

Unbelievable!! Amazing staff, property off the wall good. I can’t count how many times people walked across Mirissa beach and took photographs of the apartment. I felt like a pop star sitting on the sofa with my girl Shareen. One person had the audacity to come in and take a 360 video on his phone. I’m sure he lied to his friends that he was staying there. To be fair I would too. Staff were unreal, couldn’t do enough. They drove us everywhere and got us whatever we wanted and when. The only problem I have is when I go back to Sri Lanka as how could I ever beat this!! Thank you Dinnacha, Delvany, and the manager as what gents! We will most definitely see you again if not my close family! Love from the Irish and I’m sure from Shareen. What a gem youse are! There is no 10 staying there it’s a 12!! Raging I’m not waking up to them waves!! Miss it but happy knowing I was lucky enough to stay there!!
 

We arrived to 3 Gables after a 10 day trip across Sri Lanka and where amazed to find such a beautiful place to crown our trip. The place is GORGEOUS, rooms feel like a cocoon, ocean view and beach are splendid. The villa had opened a couple of weeks before our arrival and the staff were incredibly kind and helpful. Food is made by fantastic chef and really good. Worth the stay...we even skipped traveling to Maldives as we felt we wanted to stay longer...thanks to Manager Asri and team for the great time. Please remember us...we want to come back
