The River House

Bentota, Sri Lanka

Privacy, a fantastic location and total luxury — what more could you want? The River House is without a doubt one of the best small hotels in Sri Lanka. Situated on the riverbank a couple of kilometres inland, between the coastal villages of Balapitiya and Ambalangoda, this villa hotel offers a totally relaxing, 'away from it all' experience. Its spacious rooms are decorated in a style which blends Asian and contemporary influences and the attention to detail is striking.

The property has a nearby beach which can be reached in a couple of minutes — the hotel's three wheeler will take you there at any time. Guests can also explore the river on the hotel's boat or by canoe, or enjoy the views from the lovely swimming pool.
