#15 of 279 Specialty lodging in Mirissa
Rinerside Cabanas are situated at Mirissa, southern coastal line of Sri Lanka. It's only 100m (3 minutes walk) away from the beautiful Mirissa beach, yet with nicely landscaped garden and tranquil surroundings, and so you are away from Colombo-Matara road traffic noise and sometimes beach hazel. Riverside Cabanas have both AC and Non AC rooms and its specious restaurant caters both local and western food at an attractive price.

We walked in off the street and ran into Roy the propietor. After a bit of negotiation we settled on a price. Unfortunately, although he accepted our offer, during the entire stay he would constantly remind us of how good a price he gave us, he would try to get money from us in any other possible ways. Then - found about this when we left - that he was being very inappropiate towards my girlfriend. Of course always when I wasn’t around. And last but not least, obliged us to check out 1 hr before checkout was due. NOT RECOMMENDABLE!!!!

We stayed at Riverside for 2 nights. the rooms where very clean and comfortable with fully working air con. It has a perfect location with only a 2 minute walk to the beach and local food and shops. Roy and his staff were always helpful and on hand to give good local advise. I would definitely advise a stay at riverside if you are in Mirissa.

My girlfriend and I stayed at riverside cabanas with 2 friends in a large and confortable 4 people room (2 double beds). The price was good, but what really did for us was the amazing staff. Led by Roy a charming and helpful host, riverside staff were always smiling and helpful. The authentique Sri Lankan breakfast was also the best we had in Sri Lanka!!

Well located close to the center of Mirissa, a peaceful oasis awaits. Very pleasant rooms surrounding a garden with a restaurant. Amazing Sri Lankan breakfasts! Most of all, a very warm welcome by Roy, who has plenty of experience in the domain of hospitality! Always available for travel advice or a nice chat. Highly recommended and definitely a highlight of our trip!!!!

Very nice place, good vibe and actually worth more than the price.. Spacious rooms and clean. The owner is very nice and friendly. Very good location and you can see plenty of monkeys around the garden.
