    Riverside relaxation

    A delightful property on the bank of the Bentota river with just six rooms arranged in two tiers of three. The upper three have spacious balconies, and the lower three share a terrace next to the pool, which is set in a lovely, peaceful garden. There are plenty of staff and service was attentive without being intrusive. The menu was unusually varied for Sri Lanka (maybe because the owner is English and lives in Spain) so there was no problem in choosing something to eat. Everything worked - wifi, bathroom, fridge etc. We watched eagles circling over the river and a mongoose exploring the garden. We walked into the town centre in about 20 minutes and took a tuk-tuk back for just a few hundred rupees. The hotel also has its own boat and boatman, and he took us on a 2-hour river safari as well as ferrying us to the fabulous and huge Bentota beach. There's a historic Buddhist temple just round the corner, an easy walk, and that's well worth a visit. We were on our honeymoon and this was a perfect spot for us.
