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... More

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... More

Calming view , serene villa living and first class dinning. If you need to get away, Riverside Fuji is where to go. We did not want to eat anywhere else after experiencing Mr Kumara's home made food made of fresh all natural ingredients picked by hand.

The whole place is a clean as a whistle. Its almost as if it was repainted last week. (This is V rare at this price point in SL ) Kumara was a chef in Japan for 15 years and his standard of cooking, cleanliness and attitude toward his guests is clearly what is expected in that exacting country. I would... More

From the moment we checked in to the moment we left, we had an amazing time here. The owner Mr Kumara and his staff were so welcoming and friendly. The location is slightly away from the main resorts (around 15 minutes walk), which means it is lovely and quiet, but still easy enough to reach the main sights. Our rooms... More

A delightful place. Delicious food served at a table right next to the river was a highlight of our holiday. Quality accommodation with high standards of service. It was lovely to relax in the garden and watch the riverside life, and wandering around the local village was fascinating. A perfect place to relax.

This is a lovely property right on the river. We stayed 3 nights and our room was large and immaculately clean, serviced everyday (a real treat) with a great ensuite bathroom. The fridge and television were great bonuses that we really enjoyed and hadn't really expected given the reasonable room rate. Kumara is a wonderful host, lots of help and... More
