This was a three bedroom small resort. The main attraction is you can view the fall of Worlds End. Picturesque view of beautiful landscape. The river flows through & it is always refreshing to have a bath. But for some it may be cold.

River garden is a very pretty place to stay with cabanas set in a lovely garden, filled wit the sound of water and birds, and monkeys and some very bold monkeys playing in the trees. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and they can organise some interesting treks and activities. The food and drink are fine, and the only... More

This place is the worst place we ever seen. I never publish comments about hotel but for this place I have to warn future customers. All description in the website is mendacious. you will pay expensive room for cold water, no wifi and very expensive and disgusting food. We booked a room for 2 nights but when we arrived, room...

if you like camping in a beautifull surrounding, this is the place to be. Staff and management were extremely friendly and helpfull. Next to our tent a table for 2 was set, surrounded by torches this resulted in a romantic valentine's dinner. Food was well prepared and verry tastefull. And served directly to our romantic hide away. A walk down... More

We stayed there for two nights in August, and the first thing I want to mention is the friendly staff and management. They make you feel at home. The restaurant is located in the mid of an amazing.

We were booked into this "resort" as part of our 10 trip to Sri Lanka - cycling and hiking and it was the worst of all the hotels we stayed - so it may be value for money but from our perspective (having paid Ecoteam a price) it was not adequate. We had been hiking and then cycling all day.... More

We booked this place over the phone. They asked us to deposit an advance payment to their bank account, but it wasn't mandatory; so the reservation was an easy process. We reached there in the evening. Finding the place is not a concern at all as it is located right aside the main road. We were welcomed with a fruit... More

We stayed at the River Garden Resort recently and we were surprised by the excellence service of the friendly staff here. The rooms are large and clean, nothing fancy, but perfect if you are looking for an affordable basic place to stay.

We had a wonderful stay. The grounds where the hotel is located are extremely beautiful as it is next to a beautiful river. the main restaurant is next to a busy road but then the staff were so attentive that they set up the most incredibly romantic table down by the river for a memorable dinner and a beautiful breakfast....
