I told them I booked and paid for it online, and I was asked to see my online confirmation. I showed it to them, and suddenly there was an available... More

We stayed in the riverside cabanas one night and can recommend this place to other tourists- reasonable price, nice and helping staff, clean and ac-equipped rooms with a good Internet connection in the lobby and fair connection in the room *which is normal for Sri Lanka *

This was our first hotel on our first trip to sri lanka and it was in a word: beautiful. The room was quiet, spacious and clean, the garden a place of peace and the monkeys which occur from time to time in the garden are a sensation on its own.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Rinerside Cabanas are situated at Mirissa, southern coastal line of Sri Lanka. It's only 100m (3 minutes walk) away from the beautiful Mirissa beach, yet with nicely landscaped garden and tranquil surroundings, and so you are away from Colombo-Matara road traffic noise and sometimes beach hazel. Riverside Cabanas have both AC and Non AC rooms and its specious restaurant caters both local and western food at an attractive price. ... more   less
