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.

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

Riverside Fuji Inn is situated in a calm part of Bentota, just by the river. Our room was big and comfortable. The bed was very nice. The view from the room amazing. The host, Kumara, was patient, calm, sweet, helpful...we could not ask for more. The breakfast was tasty; we asked for Sri Lankan traditional breakfast and that was what... More

We only stayed overnight in this guesthouse. There were only about 4 rooms so it was not noisy at all. This was facing the lake side of Bentota. The beach is maybe 15 minutes by foot. They didn't have a list of menu but if you order something, they might be able to make it. The staff and owner Mr.... More

It has a beautiful view to the Bentota river, and the spacious rooms. The host Mr.Kumara and his assistant Hashan are very kind and hospitable people. I never met such attentive attitude to the guests in... More
