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

This was wonderful two weeks spending in this hotel with my husband. The Fuji hotel is very stylish, clean and made in Japanese minimalism. 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

We really enjoyed our 2 nights and the full service of our host and his staff. Clean room, nice food. Really helpfull and sincere owner. Walking distance from the beach and nice view on the river. We liked the boat safari, although don't expect too much and don't let them take you to all the places to visit and spend... More

This tiny hotel sits in a beautiful location overlooking the river. There are only 4 rooms so it feels like staying in someone's house. The owners are delightful. It's a very pleasant 15 minutes walk to the beach. We stayed with 2 kids aged 2 and 5. As of February, the Family suite wasn't ready yet so we stayed in... More

This child-friendly inn is very clean and comfortable with the superb river view and and a nice garden. The owner is a very honest friendly person that made us feel at home every day for a week. He is also an excellent cook. This place is a gem!!!

Nice riverfront yard with a coconut tree , simple and convenient rooms ... Don't forget to ask the owner "Kumar" for a seafood meal. 20 minutes walk to Avani hotel beach and the two stories bar "The Loft" with nice ocean view.

There are not many hotels that deserve the review of perfect, but this is surely one. Set on the banks of the Bentota River, a location far enough away from the hustle and bustle but close to everything. A host (Kumara) and staff always there but not on top of you. A room with all the mod cons you would... More

My wife and I stayed for three nights in January 2015. As we travelled through Bentota and turned off the main road our expectations plummeted as we meandered past rundown buildings alongside the narrow track. Then suddenly we stopped outside what looked like a new splendid property with an immaculate forecourt, providing secure parking and a very friendly welcome. We... More
