Nice location, nice house with a lovely garden to have breakfast and chill after a day of visits. Room is cosy and bed is comfortable. Staff is really kind. Sunset from the balcony is great and beach is nearby (walking distance). Dinner was homemade with fresh food. Thank you!!!

Thanks to the hospitality of the host Mr. Kumar, during our stay in Bentota, we felt like at home. Room on the second floor was very comfortable, clean, nice looking, with balcony and view of the quietly flowing Bentota river. The host every morning prepared a very tasty breakfast of fresh products, with delicious coffee and fresh squeezed juice. First...

I stayed at Bentota for one night and was lucky to pick this place. The owner stayed in Japan for many years so he has the highest standard on hygiene and guest satisfaction. He showed us local plants and animals in the morning and also brought me the fruit which I asked the name for. It is a short 10-15...

The location is quiet and the river views are really beautiful. The staff is helpful and kind and the breakfast is good. The rooms are clean but there could have been more toiletries to use. There's also water sport activities available in the river and the Bentota beach is close by.

My family had the good fortune to stay at the Riverside in Fuji for 5 nights in December 2015. Of course the bedroom was cosy, the bathroom spotlessly clean and the breakfast generous, but it was also Kumara's (Owner) friendliness and wonderful attention to detail that really made me feel more like an honoured guest than just a patron. The...

We stayed only two days at the riverside inn Fuji, but it felt like we became part of the family. Manager and staff did everything to make this to an amazing time for us and they are very kind and helpful people. I had the honor to celebrate my birthday at this beautiful place and could enjoy the first class...

We stayed at The Riverside inn Fuji the last week of our trip in Sri Lanka. The hotel is a family hotel with nice clean rooms, good breakfast and dinner. It's only 15min walk to the nice clean Bentota beach or 5min with a tucktuck. Nicer and more friendly than the bigger hotels on the beach. Kumara and his wife...

Though I could not stay at this awesome place due to a miscommunication from the travel company I got to meet Kumara who is such a great human being. He immediately arranged an alternative place to stay and accompanied to an indeed lovely property. The condition I placed at this new place was that I would have breakfast at Kumara's...

I cannot speak highly enough about this guesthouse. I stayed here towards thye end of my two week holiday in Sri Lanka with a friend. I stayed in some great guesthouses during my trip but the Riverside Inn Fuji was my favourite! Firstly Kumara is a fantastic host, as soon as you meet him you can tell he is a...
