Great place to stay without a second thought. Very friendly and helpful owners. Basic but very clean room with fan (though Fan is not needed due to cool breeze) and comfortable beds with fresh and clean blankets and big towels. We were surprised to see the excellent bathroom, clean and big toilet with hangers, cool shower. Value for Money.. very... More

We have stayed for three days as family in this place with children. This property overlooking just in front of Juara's little beach which is almost exclusively private for River View residents. The rooms are basic with fans, clean toilet and comfortable beds. There is no Aircon. River View has free flow of Coffee / Tea / Milo which is... More

A truly stunning island and this is the most unspoilt beach to stay on. River view is a perfect setup with clean and comfortable beach huts with a front view of the beach and the back door looking out onto the jungle river. This family run resort leaves you forgetting all about work immediately on arrival and by staying here... More

Just got back from a brilliant 7 days at this wonderful place. We are residents in Singapore and it was a great holiday away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

I stayed here over Christmas with my partner and we were disappointed with the value we received for what we paid. First of all the weather was not ideal as it rained for 2 days straight, which I can't complain about and didn't mind but the A frame chalet that we stayed in felt like we were in the storm... More

We did not encounter, bed bugs, sand flies or Mosquitos...however we're warned about the sand flies. It's was like a small enclave of peace, so if you are just looking... More

We had a wonderful 3 nights at Riverview. We found the chalets clean and basic. Beautiful views right from the balcony onto the river or beach. We loved the simplistic atmosphere away from the shiny lights of Singapore. We found no bedbugs and sandflies are only out on the beach for 1 hour in the afternoon. Insect spray works a... More
