There are not many hotels that deserve the review of perfect, but this is surely one. Set on the banks of the Bentota River, a location far enough away from the hustle and bustle but close to everything. A host (Kumara) and staff always there but not on top of you. A room with all the mod cons you would...

My wife and I stayed for three nights in January 2015. As we travelled through Bentota and turned off the main road our expectations plummeted as we meandered past rundown buildings alongside the narrow track. Then suddenly we stopped outside what looked like a new splendid property with an immaculate forecourt, providing secure parking and a very friendly welcome. We...

Riverside Inn Fuji is situated on a quiet street, off the main road, right on the river bank. The rooms and the garden are facing spectacular water views. The place and the grounds are kept implacably clean. Guests get personal attention from the owner who is eager to please, and the vibe is very homey. The rooms are plain, simply...

After a round tour of 14 days, we had here quite a good time for relaxation before departure back home. The hotel is quiet and familiar, the rooms are comfortable and clean. The chief is an excellent cook. We loved it to be here.

My husband and I stayed for two nights on a short trip we took a whim to Bentota. It was just the best experience. From the lovingly cut fresh fruit provided at breakfast, to the calming river touching the property, to the clean rooms and the humble hospitality of Mr.Kumara, the owner, it was a wonderful stay. Mr.Kumara even gave...

I was at this hotel with my girlfriend from 22th OCT to 4th NOV. Our vacation was paradise and parts of our paradise were "riverside fuji" and owner of the hotel (Kumara). Hotel placed at very beautiful riverside place. That is very big plus. We have had delicious dinners and lunches (Kumara is consummate chef and cooks only fresh products)....

The proprietor of this hotel is fantastic, he and his son really make you feel at home. The homemade food is delicious and made with love and the room was very clean with a great view over the lake. The mosquito net was a bit on the small side and a better stock of beer in the evening would have...

The rooms have an awesome view to the lake. We were lucky to see some varanes swimming. The host and his young assistant were very friendly and trustful. They did everything for us to feel as comfortable as possible. We got to share two double rooms with 5 persons, without paying for the extra persons. Which was also very nice...
